Today's Topics

Visual Expressions

There are so many ways to tell stories. Whether it's comic books, graphic novels, visual novels, webcomics, etc, there are quite a lot of other mediums to tell a story. On this day, we will be talking about those books and formats that move beyond just words and use other ways to experience a story.

Social Media

How do you use social media to expand your blogging/writing horizons?  Social Media is all about networking and connections, and utilizing today's technology to the fullest.  Make sure you mention your own social media pages. Do you have another blog, maybe a Tumblr? Have a Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook? Or maybe there's an underrated social media program that you like.

How To Link Up

Please use the following format when linking up:

Name @ Blog Name - Daily Topic Represented 

For example: Sally @ Armchair BEA - Middle Grade OR Sally @ Armchair BEA - Advice & YA

Please use only permalinks (links going directly to the designated post) when linking up. If you link directly to your home page, your link will be removed.


  1. My link is displaying weird on my computer :( Tried deleting and re-adding it but it still looks the same, so maybe it's just the way it looks here? If it's messing things up for you guys I'll delete again - sorry!

  2. Mine is doing the same but the link works

  3. Same with mine. The 'delete' icon is gigantic :O

  4. Ok, mine looks weird on my computer but those who've commented above me, your links look fine!

  5. Well I'm glad to see I wasn't the only one having issues. From my screen mine also looks to be the only one affected. As long as the links work I guess that's all that matters. Hope everyone is having a great 2nd day of ABEA!
