>Armchair BEA: Blogging


  1. Since today is the BBC in NYC the Armchair BEA topic is all about blogging.  Since I am feeling behind the eight ball this morning I am going to use the prompts left and hopefully a little bit more than that but we are going to have to see how it goes.  It is just that kind of rainy slow day here in Michigan

  • How do you utilize social networking in relation to your blog? What may be the pros and cons of doing so?

  • Well, I have a facebook page but I really don’t know what to do with it. So any advice would be welcome!  I really don’t get it which is sad.  I also have twitter and I have been trying to put myself out there are get to know people.  I have chatted with a few bloggers and luck for me a few authors.

    The biggest con for me is that I get sucked in and all my time goes to it.  Ahh!
    The biggest pro is getting to know people and getting my blog out there.

  • Share some of your favorite blogging technical tips.

  • Well, honestly, I wish I had some to share but I really don’t.  i have used Book Blogging 101 and others like it to get my questions answered.  I am pretty new to this!

  • What are your tips for balance life and blogging?

  • Isn’t this the question!  It is a really tough one.  Book Blogging takes time and lots of it.  I would be spending the time reading either way so that is not the investment for me.  Rather, for me it is the actual blogging and following all the blogs that I do.  I have to make sure that I focus on what is really important in my life first and that is my family.  My blog comes second but I try not to beat myself up if I have a bad reading week because I had family stuff to do.  I think it is just important to remember what the big picture is.

  • What genre do you blog about and why?

  • I read a little of everything and always have.  My blog is not genre specific rather about my love of books, all books!

    Now that I have gotten this far, I realized that there is something I would like to say.  There are some amazing bloggers out there that help those of us who are new or just are looking to figure stuff out.  THANK YOU!  I know that you all remember what it was like when you started and in part that is why you do it but you don’t have to and I know it takes a lot of time.  So thank you!

    What tips or comments do you have about this topic?
