Book Bloggers Abroad – New International Event!
June 15, 2010 69 Comments
As a book blogger, I enjoy meeting people from other countries and to discuss books. But what do we actually know about each other? What’s it like to be a book blogger in a far away country? Do you have access to the books you want to read? Do you have electricity failure or internet disruptions? Do you have limited time for blogging because you’re working full-time? Or do you have a housekeeper and plenty of free time?
And where do you read? Is it warm enough to sit in the garden under a tree, or is it much too warm or cold for that? Where’s your favorite book store? What’s your favorite national author?
I’m so curious to know more about you all, and I’m sure I’m not the only one.
So, would you like to participate in an international event? It’s going to be called Book Bloggers Abroad. Each week, I’m going to ask one guest blogger to answer these questions, preferably with some pictures (not necessarily of you, but of your favorite place to read, your book store, etc.). It’s a great way to tell us about yourself, your country, and to get new people find their way to your blog.
I hope to run this event for 15 weeks. If there is a lot of interest, we’ll run for longer, and maybe repeat some countries (with different participants).
How to participate?
Please don’t answer the above questions in a comment - if you want to participate, either email me at jh303015 (at) gmail (dot) com or leave your email address and the address of your blog in the comments below. Let me know what country you’re from and whether you would be able to send me some pictures.
I’d like to have participants from all over the world, and would particularly (but not exclusively) like to encourage Book Bloggers from Eastern Europe, South America, Africa and Asia to participate.
Do join in! It’s going to be fun!
==== So many people want to join in, it’s really great! For that reason, please note that for the moment, I have enough entries from UK, USA, Australia and Canada. I am particularly looking for more entries from Eastern Europe, Africa and South America, but others are also very welcome to enter! ====
