a list of suggested topics. One of them was book blogging events. Book blogging for me is a very solitary hobby/occupation, usually done when the kids are in school and I'm home in a quiet house. When I first started blogging, I signed up for Mother Reader's 48 Hour Book Challenge (this year it's coming right up--June 3 through 5). This was a great first blogging event--I really felt part of an on-line community, and it was fun to surf around to other blogs (and even have a few people come visit my blog!) She also offers great prizes, which I didn't win, alas, but hope springs eternal!
I also participated in Bloggiesta, which gave me the push to do some clean up on my blog that I had been meaning to do but probably would never have managed to get to!
I encourage everyone to participate in these events--it's especially good for new bloggers who are trying to get some followers and get their blog noticed.
