Book Blogger Confessions (hosted by For What It’s Worth) is a meme that posts the 1st and 3rd Monday of every month, where book bloggers “confess” and vent about blogging/bookish topics. Feel free to share, vent and offer solutions.
Just keep it respectful – no bashing authors or other bloggers!
BEA, ALA. Have you ever been before? If you’ve been before, share your experiences; both pro & con. If you haven’t gone before, do you participate in online events like Armchair BEA? Do you hope to go one day? Do you feel too intimidated to go? Are you jealous of the big book hauls and tweets during the events?
I have never been to any of those events, let alone an author signing! I would really love to go to all of those someday, especially BEA because I hear it’s a lot of fun! I’m hoping that I can go next year, but we will see how things work out. I think I’d be really nervous to go, especially since I’ve never been on a plane and I’d have to take one to get there but also the fact that I’d meet authors and other bloggers and I’m actually really shy!
I haven’t done any of the online events from home yet either, last year and this year I knew I was going to be pretty busy around that time so I hadn’t signed up or done any commitments because I knew I couldn’t keep them.
Have you gone to any of those? Was it awesome?
