BBAW – Community Part I
September 12, 2011 55 Comments
I’m participating in the Book Blogger Appreciation Week. There are Book Blog nominations, giveaways and blog posts as part of the BBAW celebrations.
The blog post for today is about : Community
BBAW says: “Today you are encouraged to highlight a couple of bloggers that have made book blogging a unique experience for you. They can be your mentors, a blogger that encouraged you to try a different kind of book, opened your eyes to a new issue, made you laugh when you needed it, or left the first comment you ever got on your blog.”
Go to the BBAW hosting site to find links to other blogs taking part in the BBAW. These will also discuss the same topic today!
I find this SO difficult! I don’t want to single out certain bloggers and not mention others. But I can give you my favorite memes, my most reliable recommendation bloggers, and my most faithful commenters.
One meme I do every week is the It’s Monday, What Are You Reading? by Sheila of Bookjourney. The meme involves telling readers what books we’ve read the last week, and what we’re reading now.
I love meeting new bloggers this way or catching up with people to check what they’ve been up to in the last week.
I also very much enjoy the 5 Best Books meme by Cassandra of IndieReaderHouston. Every week, we’re asked to list the 5 best books in a particular category. For instance, last week was about books in which the story takes place in an educational institution.
There are a number of fellow book bloggers of whom I’ve realised that we often like the same books. Or dislike them. I happily take recommendations from others, but these people get it right most of the time!
The people I appreciate the most are those that read my blog, you, my subscribers, and especially those that leave comments. I love comments and it’s great to get feedback and know that people actually read my blog.
WordPress has an option to show who my top commenters are, so here they are:
- Cindy of The Only Cin
- Rikki of Rikki’s Teleidoscope
- Leslie of Under My Apple Tree
- Uniflame of She Likes Bento and Uniflame Creates
- Louise (bunny_hops) who is a blogless blog reader
- Boof of The Book Whisperer
- Mari of Bookworm with a View
- Dorte of DJ’s Krimiblog
- Nadine of The Books of Life!
- Novroz of Polychrome Interest
These are my most faithful subscribers and commenters. Thanks, guys! And to all of you who take the trouble to read my posts (whether or not you comment): it’s very much appreciated!
Who are what do you appreciate most
