Book Blogger Appreciation Week - Day 5 - Saying Goodbye

Share a highlight of this year’s BBAW. Whether it’s a blog you discovered or a book you’re going to read or a way you felt refreshed, this is the day to celebrate the week!

  Oh, this week felt good. This is the most I've blogged in one week in over two years. This is by far the most I've visited other blogs in that same time. It was just so good to immerse myself in this community once again. It felt like coming home to friends I haven't seen in too long. I have so many good reasons for not spending time in the blogging world, but this week helped me realize that it's okay to take a little time for myself, to spend time doing something I really love.   Initially, I was unsure how I felt about not including the awards aspect this year - they had been such a huge focus of my past BBAW experiences. But midway through the week, I realized I hadn't even missed them. I'd been having so much fun jumping from blog to blog, reading interviews and book recommendations, that I hadn't even noticed that I didn't know who had the "Best Eclectic Book Reviews" this year. I think it was nice to just celebrate ALL of the bloggers in the community, and not single out a few for special regard.   Once again, this week has been a highlight. Thanks so much to Amy, and everyone else who was responsible for a wonderful week. I do love being a book blogger, and this week has helped me to remember why.

Well said! It is nice to be immersed in it. I've been so out of the loop, this was a great way to get back in and feel refreshed. Happy BBAW, Eli! :)

I was telling my husband the same thing--that this is the most I've blogged and blog hopped in I don't remember how long! It's been a lot of fun--but exhausting. I am glad I took part this year. It's helped renew my interest in blogging.

This was such a fun week of blogging. I'm so excited to have discovered so many new (to me) blogs.

Amy said...

yaaay! I've missed you a lot and it's been fun to see you around again. (also do you still watch Supernatural? I always think of you when I hear about the show)

I didn't miss the awards part either. BBAW is fun even though I don't really do much. Amy deserves a lot of kudos for her efforts to build the community.
