Paths to Becoming a Better Blogger--Discussing Development

The BEA Bloggers Conference is taking place today in New York City! The jam-packed schedule features networking opportunities before, during, and after these sessions:
Adult & YA Editor Insight panels (concurrent), Insider Secrets from Book Blogging Pros*, Taking Your Online Presence Offline, Blogging Platforms, Extending the Reach of Your Blog Online and Book Blogging & The “Big” Niches
*These will be concurrent panels featuring adult and YA-lit bloggers--and the YA panel features Armchair BEA co-founder Danielle Smith (@the1stdaughter)!

The purpose of the conference is to foster "blogger development"--and clearly, that development can go in a variety of directions! Today, we're inviting you to talk about your approach. Have you branched out into your community? Do you partner with other bloggers? Have you gone "pro" or tried generating some income through your blog? If you're a long-term blogger, how has your online personality developed over the years?

Tell us about things you've done to expand your blogging horizons, and the things you'd like to do but haven't managed (or figured out) yet. Come back here to link up your post, and then go see what other participants have to say. Let's foster our development as bloggers and learn from each other!

And if you want to talk about books, today's genre discussion is...genre! Genre fiction, that is. We'll have a separate link tool for you to add your posts on the topic to our lead discussion.


  1. Great topic today. It's always fun to see what others are doing.

  2. Oh, I'm really excited for this topic!

  3. I'm excited to see what everyone will say! I'm a relatively new blogger, so it should be interesting to see the responses of more experienced bloggers! :D

  4. This has been really helpful. Thanks for a great topic!

  5. I seperayed todays topics into two posts. My blog development post is a rambling of "what ifs". This blogging thing isn't as easy as people might think.

    I feel like I'm mudling through it all. Don't know where to go from where I am. Thpugh I do have thpughts about it.
