Welcome to the first day of Book Blogger Appreciation Week 2011. This week's theme is Cultivating a Community of Bloggers and Readers and today's post topic is:
While the awards are a fun part of BBAW, they can never accurately represent the depth and breadth of diversity in the book blogging community. Today you are encouraged to highlight a couple of bloggers that have made book blogging a unique experience for you. They can be your mentors, a blogger that encouraged you to try a different kind of book, opened your eyes to a new issue, made you laugh when you needed it, or left the first comment you ever got on your blog. Stay positive and give back to the people who make the community work for you!Today I thought I would spotlight a few bloggers for different reasons.
Blogger I would love to send a bunch of flowers and some chocolates to:
Zibilee from Raging Bibliomania for her faithful support of my blog and constant comments, especially when I put up posts which no-one else seems to find interesting! Thanks again Zibilee!
Blogger who I would love to have a cup of coffee or three with
Beth Fish from BethFishReads.com. Pretty sure we could have a good old chinwag that might last quite some time.
Blogger who I have had coffee with but will hopefully do so many more times in the future
Bree from All the Books I can Read. One of the joys of being on Twitter is that over the last year or so I have met book bloggers and tweeps who live really close to me! We've met up quite a few times since then and I look forward to continuing to do so!
Blogger who likely doesn't know I exist but who I would love to chat books with
Julie from Booking Mama always posts about books that I think I would love to read!
Blogger who influences me the most in terms of adding the most books to my TBR list
This honour goes to Sarah from Reading the Past. She not only reviews lots of really interesting sounding historical fiction, but when she posts some of the upcoming releases I have been known to just add the whole list to my TBR list!
Blogger who I have known the longest, who I chat to all the time and who needs to come and stay in my spare room!
Kelly from The Written World.
There are a ton of other bloggers who I could highlight, and feel a little bit bad that I haven't but you have to draw the line somewhere! Besides, I would have had to have thought of even more categories!
Have you shared about some of your favourite bloggers as part of BBAW?
