A Book Blogger Appreciation Week Meme!

1) What has been one of the highlights of blogging for you?
I am brand new to blogging about books (just started in July) though I have been in the bookselling business for the past ten years. Those that know me know that I could talk your ear off about books so being able to write about them is a hoot. I love searching and looking through all the blogs and getting tips that way. I am blessed that I have made contact with some fabulous people in the publishing industry that keep me in the know about books coming out. I feel thrilled to be able to review for them and get those books into the hands of people who will love them.
What blogger has helped you out with your blog by answering questions, linking to you, or inspiring you?
I am so new to it that I don't have a favorite yet though LitHousewife and Chick Loves Lit I enjoy but I know it's just the beginning for me. There are so many more to learn from.
What one question do you have about BBAW that someone who participated last year could answer?
What is the best way to really get your blog noticed?

Happy Reading!

Hi, welcome to the book blog world and thanks for stopping by my blog :) The best way to get your blog noticed is to do what you are already doing. Visiting other blogs and leaving comments is a great way to get to know each other and we a really friendly bunch and will always return the favour. Participating in a couple of meme's is another good way or getting your blog seen and they are a lot of fun. I hope this helps a bit. Bye for now x

Hiiii thanks for mentioning me in the survey question! :)
Ways to get your blog noticed:
*Stop over to and get involved there - there are several groups that give you opportunities to host blog tours or do giveaways on your blog, which brings in traffic!
*Submit some of your posts to blog carnivals - if you search for them on Google you can usually find at least one that fits the genre of one of your blog posts!
*Join a reading challenge - I joined the Sookie Stackhouse challenge at Beth Fish Reads, and on her blog we post reviews of the books when we've read them - I have gotten quite a few visits from that alone.
*Twitter, if you're interested - there are book bloggers on there who share book news, giveaways, etc - if you get other readers to follow you, it is more exposure when you post a link to one of your posts (and I just had an author retweet one of my giveaways when I posted it on Twitter)!
I'm usually feeling very talkative about books and blogs, so if you want to talk about anything let me know :)
