Hello All! Welcome to another year of Armchair BEA, I am happy to say that I will be attending BEA and am looking forward to sharing all my experiences but I also wanted to participate in Armchair again because it is sooooooo good!
Please tell us a little bit about yourself: Who are you? How long have you been blogging? Why did you get into blogging?
Hi! I am Stephanie; I have been blogging for a little over a year at Cover2CoverBlog and recently starting posting at The Nerd Cave too. I started blogging because I read…a lot… and my husband said I needed a hobby, so blogging about the books I read became my hobby and outlet. I love it… although Andy is not as thrilled about his suggestion since my house is now overflowing with books.
Where in the world are you blogging from? Tell a random fact or something special about your current location. Feel free to share pictures.
I blog from McLean, Virginia in the United States, and am about 30 minutes away from Washington DC or as most know it…where the President lives.
Have you previously participated in Armchair BEA? What brought you back for another year? If you have not previously participated, what drew you to the event?
Last year, I was still new to blogging, so BEA was not an option but I was super jealous of those who did go. I participated in Armchair BEA and LOVED it, I had not felt tied to the blogging community so much as I did with Armchair BEA and I am excited to join again.
Hm… that is a difficult one. I have a lot of jobs… I blog obviously, but I also work at George Mason University in Virginia as a Program Manager for the School of Education, I also teach at the Northern Virginia Community College, and on occasion I help in my step-mothers office with filing and scanning…because she hates that stuff and it is cash in my pocket J I love to keep busy so it I am not over scheduled I am bored and want to nap.
What is your favorite part about the book blogging community?
I love that while many of us have never met and rarely interact with one another, we are all such a close-knit community. Book bloggers are awesome and I can Tweet at people and they reply even if they don’t know me, and I can comment on posts and visit blogs to see into other reader’s lives, I really like that (not in a creepy way!)
