BBAW: Staying Connected
This week is Book Blogger Appreciation Week, hosted by The Estella Society! Today's topic:
How do you stay connected to the community? Examples: social media, regular commenting, participation in blog events, etc. Tell us your faves!
I have been fortunate to meet and connect with some awesome book bloggers! One of my "blogger BFFs" is Brandie from Brandie is a Book Junkie, and I met her through my favorite way of connecting with other bloggers and readers, which is Bout of Books! It's an AWESOME week long readathon, with so many awesome participants, twitter chats, daily challenges, and all around fun. If you haven't gotten involved yet, I HIGHLY suggest you do so! The next Bout of Books is coming up May 9-15, 2016.
I also use Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. I have the most success connecting with others through Twitter and Instagram, from my experience. I also connect with other bloggers and get book recommendations through Goodreads. I also try to read other blogger's posts and comment on their posts to show support. I know how much work blogging takes and I enjoy reading others' posts so much and learning about new books, and other people's perspectives on books.
I also participate in Weekly Memes--most often Top Ten Tuesday hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, Book Beginnings Fridays hosted by Rose City Reader, and It's Monday, What Are You Reading? hosted by The Book Date.
What about you? How do you stay connected in the blogging world?
