Blogging about Blogging!

Today is the day of the Book Blogger Convention, so  in conjunction with that event Armchair BEA will also put the focus on the “blog” portion of “book blog.” There are lots of things you could post about today - here are just a few to get you thinking:

  • How do you utilize social networking in relation to your blog? What may be the pros and cons of doing so?
  • Share some of your favorite blogging technical tips.
  • Create a "rule list" of things you should and shouldn't be doing on a book blog. 
  • What are your tips for balance life and blogging?
  • What genre do you blog about and why?
  • How do you keep your blog fresh and interesting to your readers & yourself?
  • There are quite a few book blogging events out there. Which are your favorites and why? How do they affect your blog directly?

Still not sure what to post about? Why not try taking a look at a few of these sites and sharing some of the tips you learned or the best posts you read?
