Armchair BEA: Blogger Development



Read my introduction post.

Read my classics post.


I've come a long way in almost 4 years of blogging, besides the fact I went from "Book Blogger" to "Lifestyle Blogger"

When I first started blogging back in 2009, my posts were premature to me. My reviews felt like the ones you did in school. Very to the point and that's it, no personalization of any kind. Now I add myself to each post. Or at least, I try. It's tough telling the world about yourself sometimes, by connecting yourself to whatever you're writing about via personal experience. It all makes sense to do it though....
So someone please tell the 2009 Freda that!
She was too afraid to open up. What if you guys didn't like her? What if you only want basic book info and opinion? What if?!
Then I went to a conference last October, She's Connected Toronto. I not only met an incredible group of people, and networked with amazing brands and companies, but I learned a ton about being a better blogger. Maybe I'm still utilizing the mass of information I learned, and believe me when I say I still am, but it has changed my look at blogging entirely. I highly recommend all bloggers attend at least one blogger conference in their lifetime. Whatever you choose, I am positive it will guide you further, as it has with me.

  1. That's so interesting that you are a Lifestyle blogger rather than a book blogger. It's so nice to meet fellow Canadians at Armchair BEA.

  2. That's pretty awesome that you learned so much from a conference. I'm hoping to attend one if it comes anywhere near St. Louis. I hope you enjoy ABEA. Tattooed Books

  3. That's really cool. I should keep my eyes out for a blogging conference. Sounds like something I'd really benefit frm & enjoy!! I'm still figuring a LOT of things out. It's my first year!

Funny, heartwarming and visually stunning, The Grinch is fun for the whole family!



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.

Giveaway: A Touch Of Scandal

Book description:
The last thing Garrett, Duke of Calton, expects to find while tracking his sworn enemy is the delectable, mysterious Kate. This beautiful servant girl rouses a longing the battle-scarred ex-soldier had never

he seeks, he's convinced he's been betrayed.
Kate knows her duty to her family, yet how can she ignore Garrett's powerful pull on
