My favorite parts of the week were:
- Getting to know other bloggers better
- Learning post content tips. These were great, and I'm still going through Mr. Linky on the official BEA site to read more
- The Twitter party!! (Even though I got there an hour late.) It was the next best thing to being there and better than commenting on a blog, hoping for a response in the next day or two
I don't participate in a lot of memes because I have a hard enough time getting reviews up, but doing so is a good way for people to get to know each other. So for me the Armchair BEA was like a week long meme, and I loved it.
One thing I admit besides not participating in memes often - although bloggers mentioned that meme reading is not a favorite past time - is that I rarely do posts besides book reviews. Hard to find the time...blah, blah, blah. And personally, what I enjoy is getting to know bloggers better, which is hard to do if they only post book reviews (like I do :)
Soooo, to practice what I preach, and for you to get to know me better, here's a look at my blogging digs.
Sometimes I go through my Google reader and write comments from my iPad at the kitchen table
My view from the kitchen table. You're all invited to come over for a swim anytime! In fact, I wish you would. I get lonely.
My husband took this from his iPhone a couple weeks ago. Kind of blurry, but just pretend you forgot to put your contacts in.
Thank you to the Armchair BEA hosts! Florinda, Emily, Tif, the 1st daughter, and Michelle: You did a beautiful thing by bringing us together and having our OWN fun...but without the tired feet and aching backs.
Remember to go to Armchair BEA Central to complete their survey. It'll help them plan for next year.
