Armchair BEA 2013 Wrap-Up

Wow!  It has been another great year here at Armchair BEA 2013.  We had a lot of great discussions, including blogger development, ethics in blogging, and how to keep blogging fun and lasting.  We have had a ton of great conversations about different genres.  We have met lots of new bloggers, authors, and publishers.  We even get a glimpse into BEA itself through pictures and videos from our on-site correspondents.  And, we have partied very hard throughout the week!

Now, it is the time for you to share your thoughts and highlights from the week through another link-up.  However, please note that we will be posting in the next few days a survey that we would love to also have you come back and share your feedback as well.  We strive to make Armchair BEA better each and every year!

I will leave you with a few housekeeping items as we officially bring Armchair BEA 2013 to a close . . .

FEEDBACK:  Please feel free to share your feedback through your wrap-up posts as well as our upcoming survey.  In addition, you are always welcome to email the Armchair BEA team throughout the year at armchairbea (at) gmail (dot) com.

GIVEAWAYS:  If you were one of our lucky winners, whether it was from our daily giveaways or twitter parties, ALL prize claims need to be submitted no later than Tuesday, June 4 at 12:00 Midnight EST.  After this time, the claim form will no longer be available as we work in passing all winner information on to our sponsors.

LINKIES LIVE:  Don't forget that the links that have been shared can be viewed throughout the year!!  If you missed something, you still have time to share in all the resources available!

Thanks for another great year!!  See you from your armchair again in 2014!
