BBAW: Blog Goals

Wow! This has been an action-packed week what with reading a plethora of posts and interviews, entering a few contests and discovering a ridiculous number of new-to-me blogs. I was a blogger newbie last year and was too nervous to participate at all except for entering a couple of contests. This year I feel comfortable being a part of this great event. I didn't mention it earlier but I was nominated in a couple of award categories -- Best New Blog, Best Kidlit Blog and Best Writing -- and I really, truly appreciate those that thought enough of We Be Reading to nominate us. I think that Book Blogger Appreciation Week is a fantastic opportunity to showcase the diversity in the book blogging community and I look forward to its continuing growth and evolution.

Without further rambling, here's the final writing topic.

Write in 50 words or less … what do you like best about your blog right now and where would you like your blog to be a year from now?
In a few more than fifty words ...

What I like the most about our blog is the wide variety of books that we present. I hope that there's something here for almost everyone -- a one-stop shop, so to speak. I will keep going with the same broad focus and hopefully be able to add more actual participation from Z as he gets a bit older and more thoughtful about what he reads. I also want to keep participating in the community -- meeting local bloggers and maybe some non-local ones. I would also love to start attending more author events. It's not always the easiest with a youngster but I'm sure I can figure it out! And really I just want to keep this blogging thing mellow and not stress about it. Is that a plan or what?

Thank you to all of our regular followers and all of the new ones and also to all of the writers of the blogs I follow. You all make my book world a more well-rounded place!

Sharing our love of books with all who will listen,
K and Z
