Armchair BEA 2014: Wrap-Up

Design by Nina Reads
Another day, another year, another successful Armchair BEA.
Unlike last year, I was more active this time, flitting around and reading posts, meeting new bloggers and having interesting conversations at the Twitter parties. To recap, here are the links to the daily topics that are discussed on my blog:
I had the most fun in the Twitter parties where I get to discuss with fellow bloggers and readers the topic that what drew us all here in the first place: books. And I am blaming you all for the increase of my TBR list. You recommended a lot of books and I saw books in your posts that I have never heard about but are now in my radar. I have never cared for some of the genres but as was said in my Beyond the Borders post, books that were contemptuous before could end up being a favorite and source of much reflection. 

Perhaps the biggest thing that I will take away from this year's ArmchairBEA is the importance of networking. I am aware that that skill is what I am lacking for the past years that I have been blogging and now I am trying to rectify that. I cannot hide behind shyness and doubt now.

Much as we not want it, it is over and as all things, it must come to an end. Thank you all for such a wonderful week and I hope that we that next year we have that massive online book con, yeah?

  1. I’ve had so much fun visiting all the blogs on Armchair BEA. This is my first year and I’ve had such a good time that I plan to come back next time. I’ve added a ton of books to my TBR list as well as added a lot of book friends on twitter, goodreads, and bloglovin. Thank you so much for participating and making it a great first year for me.

  2. LOL on the TBR list...I will admit mine is a tad ridiculous right now. I am going to be taking part in a read-a-thon or two to take care of that.

  4. I have to say, my TBR is swaying a little bit more than it was on Monday. Had a good time, too. The Twitter parties were something else.

  5. Networking is the area I most need to work on as well, and I look forward to trying to spread my wings in that way over the next year and beyond. Hopefully by next years ABEA, I can say that I have done that and that it has paid off in spades.

    I loved your post about GIFs and will be trying to incorporate that into my posts at some point, although the idea seems a bit daunting to me right now.

  6. Agree about the networking. It's such a valuable tool for not only blogging, but also in real life. It's been nice to meet so many bloggers from all over the place as well.
