Armchair BEA: Day Five: The Future of Book Blogging



I can't believe the event is in it's final day. It really went by so fast and I feel like I made some new and wonderful connections.
Thank you to the new followers! You know you help make this blog a cool place, at least for me. I appreciate every one of you.

I thought some of the previous day's themes were tough, but today's takes the cake. I don't have a blog "vision". I just write what I know, which sometimes might not be much, and keep it as real as possible without being offensive. Sometimes wires get crossed in good old web-land, but for the most part it's one of the most rewarding things I do. The people make it all worthwhile, even when we don't see eye-to-eye.

Now I'm definitely no expert in blogging, so no "tips" will come out of me. I can only say be you. No one is interested in a carbon copy, let your personality come through in your writing... even if your a cynical, sarcastic oddball like me.

I hope you've all had a great BEA and Armchair BEA. I hope to one day join you in NYC and be part of the festivities and fun, until then I bid you adieu and wish you many days of happy reading and writing!

  7. I think your post is an important reminder that it's not always necessary to have a plan. I'm quite ambitious and want to build my blog up, but I'm sure not everyone wants that. And that's okay too! Everyone is different and that's what makes all the blogs so different and interesting! :)

  9. I was at BEA, but after reading some of the A-BEA posts, I can tell you that you guys did something that I didn't do -- have some thought-provoking conversations about blogging. (Not complaining -- I did get to meet a lot of amazing people.)

REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

It was so much fun to do! It was super cool to watch the tinsel levitate too! Then we sat to watch the movie.
What a good movie for the whole family! It was filled with action and adventure. Plus the story line was what I appreciated most.
The hubby had lots to say about this one. He was happiest that the film focused on one of the original Spider-man nemesis', Mysterio. He is one of the best Ma…
