I was very excited to hear in the last couple of weeks that some enterprising bloggers who also cannot make it to BEA this year have come up with the idea of Armchair BEA for the rest of us to participate in this week. In addition to BEA, there is also the Book Blogger's Convention, and so this has been included as part of Armchair BEA as well.
Anyone can participate and there will be suggested blogging themes, giveaways, discussions and more.
Here is the proposed schedule:
- Tues. May 25th - BEA Related Posts
- Wed. May 26th - Blogger Interviews (Sign-ups already closed)
- Thurs. May 27th - BEA Related Posts & Giveaways on Participating Sites
- Friday May 28th - BBC Roundtables
I have already started working on my posts, and have had fun revisiting an author signing I have previously attended, and will have a challenge for all those people who are good at deciphering unintelligible hand writing later in the week, and on Wednesday I am planning to bring you an interview with a new to me blogger.
I do have a couple of other ideas of things to post for BEA, but we'll see how inspired I get as to whether I actually do post them or not!
So, while I can't make it to BEA or BBC, I will definitely have an Empire State of Mind this week
