Keeping It Real, Fresh, and Fun (Real Fresh and Fun?)

12:01 AM Florinda Pendley Vasquez 13 Comments

It's been a long week of celebrating books and blogging here at Armchair BEA Central! Whether you've been online here with us, or with the crowds in New York City converging on this final day of Book Expo America, you may be feeling a strange combination of energized and exhausted by now--full of things to say and new ideas to try, but not feeling up to doing much of it. Are you wondering just how you'll be able to keep all this going?

Today, we're interested in knowing how you address that question, especially if you've been doing this for a while. If you have been around for years, how do you keep your material fresh? How do you continue to keep blogging fun? How do you not only grow an audience, but how do you keep them coming back for more? Think about it, post about it, link to it, and read about how other bloggers are keeping it real, fresh, and fun. Maybe we can inspire each other today!

Our last book discussion of the week is about books for kids of all ages--children's and YA lit. We'll have a separate link tool in our lead post where you can share your own posts about the youth literature you love.

  13. This idea was interesting, because I haven't been blogging for as long as most people! Five months is pretty long though.
