Are You Attending BBPOC 2012?
The Book Bloggers and Publishers Online Conference started yesterday, and I registered just hours before it began. I had heard about the conference but completely forgot about it until yesterday morning. I knew that, because I have a young son that I take care of all day, I wouldn’t be able to be on my computer during all the panels when they were live, but I found out that they will be online for at least a month afterwards, so I can listen to them at my leisure.
So far I’ve learned quite a bit about NetGalley (I haven’t tried to use it yet since my blog is so new and I just got a Kindle), and working with publishers. I haven’t been able to listen to all the panels yet, but I plan on listening to all of them eventually! I’ve also been interacting with some bloggers and following some new book blogs – it’s been a great way to get to know some fellow bloggers!
Some of the upcoming panels that I’m anticipating are “What Authors Look For in Reviews,” “Creative Content: Stand Out,” “Defining Your Blog – Make it What You Want,” and “Negative Reviews: Fallout and Fears.”
So if you’re interested in learning some tips and tricks for your book blog, I think you can still register! It’s $45 and while Sunday is the last day, the panels will be online for at least a month, so you won’t have to worry about missing any of the discussions!

I am very impressed by how committed you have become to your new blog! It makes me feel inadequate for not taking mine seriously enough.
I don't think I'm going to register this year but I would love to hear about what all you are learning.
I'm only now starting to post on a regular basis, so maybe next year I'll register and see what all I can learn.

Thanks! I'm probably spending way too much time on the blog itself and on networking, rather than actually reading and reviewing! But in time it'll get easier and hopefully I'll be able to read books a little quicker. I mean, I can read 100 pages in a day if I absolutely need to and I tell Jeremy that this is what I have to do and he has to take over parenting for the day or whatever, but I don't like to do that very often.
My posts are regular, but there aren't as many reviews as I would like. I really enjoy the memes but I don't want them to be the majority of what I post. However, right now it may have to be that way because I need to catch up on my reading! Okay, I think I need to get off the computer and read!

Thanks so much for stopping by and for following back! I appreciate it! Yeah, I'm learning quite a bit at the conference! I've missed a lot of the panels but I'm going to go back and listen to them!

Hi there, Andrea! I'm popping over to take a peek around your place, since you've already visited mine. :) I absolutely love the blog theme, it's so dainty and feminine, but still substantial enough to pack a punch! I'm going to follow via Linky Follow so you get the "count", but also through RSS.
Thanks for stopping by my blog, and I'm so glad that I've met you through BBPOC!
