The final BBAW question is about future treasures.
We’ve been visiting each other and getting to know each other better…now is your chance to share what you enjoyed about BBAW and also what your blogging goals are for the next year!
This is so unoriginal, but I enjoyed visiting a lot of new to me blogs. I loved reading the interviews (forgot to signup for one this year) and seeing how everyone landed in the book blogging pool.
As for goals, well, I really don’t know. I started my blog to share my thoughts on books (my husband, patient though he is with me, couldn’t stand listening to me talk about what I was reading anymore J) and haven’t strayed too far from my original premise. I don’t accept many ARCs, just a few here and there, and read only books that I find interesting. The list of TBR books I keep has grown exponentially in the last year but I consider that a good thing.
I have been thinking lately of changing the look of my blog though and I know I need to update some links and pages I have been neglecting. Sorry challenges page. Other than that, I don’t have huge plans. I didn’t start my blog with any intentions of making it into something else or to find any work with it. I do book reviews for another site (The Book Reporter) and was doing that several months before I began my blog. I was enjoying it immensely and thought if I can do reviews for another group, I can do them for myself too and that’s sort of how it got started. I never did, and still don’t, have any big plans other than to make it a place where I share my thoughts on what I’m reading and some odd occasional things about life that interrupt my reading time.
This week has been great fun. I’ve found some wonderful new blogs to follow, added more books to my TBR, and learned a few things as well. It’s been a good BBAW 2010 and I’m glad I got the chance to participate this year.

Ooo, a redesign would be fun–WordPress has put out a few really lovely new designs recently (which is one of the reasons it’s superior to Blogger). If you need a fanciful header, I gladly offer my Photoshop skills–just shoot me an e-mail.
Hmm…will definitely keep that offer in mind! Thanks!
May you continue reading great books and blog about those for us!
Here is my BBAW: Forgotten Treasures post!
Will do! Thanks for stopping by.
Oh definitely that’s what this week is all about! Meeting new bloggers. 🙂
I think your goals are great–just be true to yourself and keep blogging fun. I also started blogging because my husband was sick of me talking about books. Now he’s sick of me talking about blogging. 😉
Ha! Mine too!
Please consider this comment your invitation to finish up your BBAW week by adding a link to any reviews you’ve managed to post this week to the Saturday Review of Books at Semicolon this Saturday. Every week book bloggers from all over the blogosphere post links to their reviews and other bloggers and readers check out the reviews and find even more books to add to their wishlists.
Thanks for blogging and reading and sharing.
Your goals sound good to me! I don’t accept many ARCs/review copies either, and I think blogging’s more fun that way. 🙂
