Book Blogger Appreciation Week (of BBAW). You can register to be considered for an award in a specific category or you can register to just have voting privileges.
When I first become aware of the event via Twitter, I considered registering but then thought I was really too new at the whole blogging thing to really put myself "out there" so speak. After all, I only started my blog in late February. I didn't want to appear like I was being boastful or self-promoting by registering. So... I kept reading posts of those who had already registered. But the funny thing was, I didn't think that about a single one of them! Aren't we the hardest on ourselves? Well...at least I know I am my own worst critic! I have, however, received a lot of great feedback from other Kit Lit book bloggers, friends, and colleagues about the usefulness of my posts and links. Then I read this post at the BBAW blog site that I found via YA Book Shelf and realized this event is really a way to connect with more bloggers and readers, so today I finally decided to go ahead and nominate myself for two different categories: Best New Book Blog and Best Kit Lit Blog.
After a lot of thought and suggestions from a few close advisors (you know who you are) I am submitting the following posts to represent the content, purpose and target audience of my blog:
Igniting the Fire
A Nest for Celeste
The Power of Word~less Books
A Fabulous Fair Alphabet
Best of luck to all the BBAW participants! I am looking forward to all the connections this event will bring!
