BBAW Intro Meme

Book Blogger Appreciation Week is coming up September 14-18, 2009. BBAW was created by Amy from My Friend Amy and she's started a BBAW intro meme for bloggers to get to know each other. I only began blogging in October 2008 & this is my first BBAW so I'm answering the newbie questions.

1) What has been one of the highlights of blogging for you?
The highlight to dazzle all highlights has been the friends made all over the world. It has been a heartwarming & wonderful experience to get to know and connect with people from the book blogging community & some of these bloggers have become firm friends that are interested in, not only what book we'll be reading next but also about each other and our familys'. Warm, friendly, generous, funny, helpful people. I have always been an eclectic reader, enjoying books from different genres but blogging has certainly diversified my reading tastes even further.

2) What blogger has helped you out with your blog by answering questions, linking to you, or inspiring you?
There have been many bloggers who have helped me out, bloggers on a whole are a friendly, inspirational & generous bunch.

I was inspired to start my blog by Alaine - Queen of Happy Endings, she has one of the most beautiful blogs in the blogosphere and being friends in the same town we get to share & borrow books from each other and generally chat for hours about all things book related.

J.Kaye from J.Kaye's Book Blog was my very first follower and always, always commented on my posts which was such a highlight when my blog was just getting off the ground.

Lea from Closetwriter was the very first blogger that I didn't know, who out of the blue offered to give my blog 3 columns and still updates my awards slideshow. She is one of the most generous souls, always helping and tooting other people's blogs.

Melissa from Melissa's Bookshelf posted awesome 'how to' blog tips and hints and was always willing to answer questions when you found things a tad confusing, which I did quite often.

3) What one question do you have about BBAW that someone who participated last year could answer?
If you've missed nominating blogs, what's the best way to participate & get involved with BBAW?
