It’s day three of Armchair BEA and I’ve been having a blast!
Today’s suggested writing topic…we’d love for you to share a positive “real life” experience with books! Either by way of your own partnerships in your community, a book signing you went to or possibly even a get together with fellow book bloggers.
It’s amazing how many people in real life I’ve met through blogging. I always thought that blogging was a very isolated thing – like playing the piano where you sit in a room by yourself all day long. That hasn’t been true at all! Even as shy as I am, I’ve been able to meet people.
The first book signing where I met people that I knew from online was the Cinder book signing in January. I met Carrie there who I knew from Twitter and I even said hi to Brodi Ashton before her book was published.
Then I went to the Writing for Charity conference in March in Provo and got to have my short story kindly critiqued by Brodi Ashton (I swear I don’t stalk her guys) and meet some more bloggers who I knew from online like Enna Isilee and Diana.
Blogging has definitely gotten me out of my shy comfort zone to put myself out there and meet people! Talking to bloggers and authors through Twitter, blog comments and events has helped me be a little less shy in all aspects of my social life.
Tell me about how you’ve networked through your blog in real life!
