Today at Armchair BEA: Beyond Your Blog

12:00 AM Florinda Pendley Vasquez 36 Comments

Has blogging opened up opportunities for you beyond getting free, advance copies of new books? Has it helped you get offers to write or review elsewhere (maybe even for pay)? Have you gotten invites to special events or places you might not have been to otherwise? Today, we'd like you to talk about those opportunities in you own posts, and later this morning, we'll have a guest post from one of our own Armchair BEA team members, about her freelancing experiences.

Link up you posts about going "beyond your blog" right here! Don't forget to turn off any word verification to encourage commenters!

  8. Would love some ideas on how to "monetize", without ruining the calming aesthetic I try to achieve.

  15. This should be a most instructive day for me on Armchair BEA. I'm looking forward to learning so much. "Beyond Your Blog" is an area that drew me to this event.
