Welcome to Day 2 of Armchair BEA!  Let's get to it!!

DAILY REMINDERS

4 PM EST Twitter Party: Going International



LINK-UPS

Today is all about aesthetics! The first part of this topic is concerned specifically with the books, the second with our blogs. Here are some guiding questions to get you started!

The Books: How often do you judge a book by its cover? How often are you surprised by what you find? Do you strategize and make sure every book in your series has the same cover design (as far as you are able to) and type? How important is it for the visual art on the outside of the book to match or coordinate with the literature art on the inside?

The Blog: As a book blogger, in whatever form that takes, branding is important. Your colors, your fonts, your style of review, all of these things come together to make the "brand" of your blog - something that makes your reviews and posts and websites, all your various content, immediately recognizable to the people looking for you. What do you do to create a brand on your site? Do you think about these things?

  1. Today should be a lot of fun too.

    I enjoyed the Twitter chat last night. The questions were very good...great job TEAM. I surprised myself that I was able to participate. I usually can't find anything on Twitter. TweetDeck was great.

    And thanks for the prize I won.

    1. I"m glad you are enjoying it!!! I'm only one very small part of the team this year (just keeping the participant page up to date) but I know we are all working hard so these words are great to hear!

  5. Since I don't consider myself a very visual person, aesthetics is a bit of a difficult topic for me, but that also gives me something to talk about. I'm looking forward to hearing what other people have to say.
