The Book Blogger Convention 2011

on May 31, 2011

So – Friday I attended Book Blogger Con 2011 in NYC. What a great day!! There is something about just being around tons of people who love to read as much if not more than I do that makes me incredibly happy. I was surrounded by people who not only understood what I mean when I talk about blogging book reviews, but no one thought I was weird because I like to read all the time! It was like being in a group of kindred spirits all day.

Some of the interesting things I had the chance to experience through the sessions on Friday included listening to publishers speak about their imprints and what they look for from bloggers (and included how to get in contact with them), different genres of book blogs – niche blogging, technology for your blog (looks like podcasting is the next big thing – and Tumblr), how to spend your time wisely and balance blogging with everything else in your life, and the “grey areas” of blogging – where bloggers answered questions. We had a great and funny key note from the woman who writes “Smart Bitches, Trashy Books” and a walk-through where we could fill a bag with free books. There was even an author event where you could meet authors. It was a great day for me and I brought back tons of ideas on how to make my blog better.

I can’t wait until next year!
