For aBEA discussion today: Networking...In Real Life
So, today's task is to talk about networking and the blogging community. The prompt was "we want you to share your positive experiences of using your blog to get involved in your community. This can involve partnerships with the local literary scene, attending author events and signings, or getting together with bloggers in your area. We want to hear it all!"
Since I have only been blogging since February, I really don't have a lot to share today. I have been to a few book signings and events A LONG time ago when I worked at a bookstore, and they were great. I met a lot of interesting authors, but a lot were academic writers because it was a college bookstore.
Blogging now, has become my creative outlet. I used to do photography, charcoal drawings, and art in general..but kind of fell out of it, so I took up blogging. I am starting to become better friends with the blogging community via Twitter and RandomBuzzers online. Even my Goodreads friend list has grown.
I love the people that share my passion for reading, they are interesting and strange (in a good way) just like me :D
<3 to all you awesome bloggers!
