Appreciation Week Meme!
BBAW is coming!
Remember that nominations close on the 15th and everything will be a flurry of activity after that! (I’m so excited!!) What if you are a new blog this year like I am? They don’t want those who didn’t participate to feel left out, so if you didn’t participate last year, here are questions for newbies?
1) What has been one of the highlights of blogging for you?
I think for me, since it has all been new since January, that is hard to answer. But if I really think about it, having never blogged on any social networks or anything, I know what is one thing for me that was surprising and a highlight. I found that people are really kind and ready to help and share. I thought perhaps bloggers would be competitive but they aren't. I have made some online friends and yet never met them in person. I am not even sure if there is a techno term for a blog friend because to me, they are just that---friends! And I LOVE making people happy giving away books as reading is my passion!
2) What blogger has helped you out with your blog by answering questions, linking to you, or inspiring you?
There have been SO many bloggers who have helped me. That is one thing I found so amazing at how many people were open to helping answer questions and give suggestions. I think of two names that stick out in my mind, however, right off.
One is Drey from Drey's Library as not only is she a great supporter but she helps me with all kinds of technical problems since this is all new to me. She also looks out if she sees a mistake on a post, she discretely let's me know via email.
The second person is Kaye at Pudgy Penguin Perusals. Kaye has been my biggest supporter and become a friend I can confide in. She helps me by being there for me when things have been bad not on my blog so much but in my personal life as well. AND she always can make me laugh with her lovable penguins!
3) What one question do you have about BBAW that someone who participated last year could answer?
With so many blogs out there, how do you decide on who to vote for AND what about if you think of a blog that is deserving of a certain award but don't know how to let people know about it. Can you "advertise" for your favorites come voting time??
