My first Armchair BEA had been a blast! Enough said, so here are my answers for today's questions:
Did you learn something new?
One thing I learned from this Book Blogger Convention is to connect better with fellow bloggers and readers. I am fairly new to this community and I haven’t had the opportunity to interact with them prior to BEA. Read question number 2 for more info.
Did you connect with a new-to-you blogger?
Absolutely! I’m really thankful to have stumbled upon BEA since it helped me a lot to adjust with the Blogging community. You could say I’m a bit of a “wallflower” before this, and I’m really glad to have met new friends from this event!
What was your favorite discussion topic?
Truth be told, I enjoyed reading and writing about every single topic but Children’s / Young Adult Literature is (arguably) my favorite among all since this blog is centered on Children’s / Young Adult Literature after all! I also enjoyed the Introduction Questions and it was so much fun learning about different bloggers.
Do you have ideas for future years?
Everything on BEA is perfect. I loved every single topic, giveaways (though I didn’t get the chance to join the Instagram contest) and all the Twitter parties and if there’s something I’d suggest, it’d be to have a lot more Twitter parties and giveaways! (And I’ve won two finished copies of my choice from Strange Chemistry! Oh yes!)
I’ve gotten around 1500 estimated page views and a hundred lovely comments from this event. I know it’s not that much, but I want to thank everyone who dropped by! I hoped you enjoyed reading my discussions! And yes, I also hosted an International giveaway and it had 271 entries. Winner will be announced shortly so make sure to stay tuned!
If I’m not too busy for college next year, I might be on Armchair BEA again or maybe on the real live Book Blogger Convention at New York. Who knows? But then again, I might get too busy but I’m really looking forward to BEA 2014 and even if I won’t have the opportunity to participate next year, I’ll make sure to read every single discussion so I won’t be feeling left out.
