aBEA Discussion Today: Beyond your BlogToday the discussion is about "opportunities for you beyond getting free, advance copies of new books? Has it helped you get offers to write or review elsewhere (maybe even for pay)? Have you gotten invites to special events or places you might not have been to otherwise?" To read other people answers chick here.
As I expressed yesterday, I have only been blogging for a few months so I really haven't had many opportunities to go 'beyond' it. I do get free copies of books, which is wonderful in and of itself but I am working to do other things...very slowly though.
I currently am a part of Amazon Affiliates, but that only makes money if people click and buy through there...so I don't really make money from it. I added it to see how it might work. I though about starting Google Adsense, but honestly it scares me a little. While I think advertising is great, I also want to be able to have a little more control about the ads, I also don't think I get enough traffic for them yet.
As for writing reviews elsewhere, I have not been asked, but I also have a lot on my plate as it is. I work two jobs and blog and with that blogging is a lot of reading :).
I think that as my blog grows I will become more open to new things. So until then, I am just taking it slow, hopefully connections will be made.
Hope everyone is having a great time with aBEA, sad to see it ending soon. Thanks to everyone for great posts, conversations, and love.
