I am pretty bad at participating in readalongs, and generally group activities. Because I would wake up, and feel like not reading at all, not blogging at all. Or, I would read and write like there is no tomorrow. So following a schedule or a system seems daunting to me. Despite the block, I tried participating in a readalong this year. I was supposed to take a month to finish the book, and write four blogs about it. But, to my dismay, I finished it in five days, and wrote only one blog. I was still content about making an attempt. 😉
After a lot of consideration, I have decided to participate in The Estella Society’s Book Blogger Appreciation Week. It sounds simple, and fun. It’s also a great way to write about some of my favourite bloggers, and give a thought about my own blog.
According to Andi’s website:
This is a week-long event offering you daily prompts that you can dip it in and out of at will. You will be able to link your daily posts here and explore new-to-you bloggers and appreciate the ones you already know. Here are the daily topics for this year’s Book Blogger Appreciation Week!
Day 1: Introduce yourself by telling us about five books that represent you as a person or your interests/lifestyle.
Day 2: Interview Day! If you choose to be part of the interviews (in the form down below), you’ll be assigned a fellow blogger to chat with and post about!
Day 3: What have you read and loved because of a fellow blogger?
Day 4: How do you stay connected to the community? Examples: social media, regular commenting, participation in blog events, etc. Tell us your faves!
Day 5: One of the unfortunate side effects of reading and blogging like rockstars seems to be a tendency toward burnout. How do you keep things fresh on your blog and in your reading?
Will you participate too? Let me know. 🙂
