Day 3: Networking

Today's discussion is about networking and how we book bloggers network and participate in the book world out side of the Blogosphere.  Well...for me I try to attend every book event we have here (which is not many...sadly). The largest book event we have is our annual Alabama Book Festival. It is kinda like the BEA of Alabama....lol :) A ton of authors come out and talk and do book signings. Also their are a bunch of publishers out there and authors with tables set up advertising their book(s).  This is a great way for me to meet authors personally and talk with them about my blog and what I do. Also, if you mention that you are a reviewer they are willing to let you have a copy for review.  I absolutely love this event! I also attend many events at out public library. One thing I recently found  out about and will definitely join is the Teen Advisory Board that we have at our library. What they do is they get together every 1st Monday of the month and they help decide the events, what books to buy for the library, and etc. This is really awesome and really goes hand in hand with blogging. us book bloggers know all the latest books and soon to be released books so this is a great opportunity for me to get the latest releases in my library.

Very cool! Our library has a teen group (not sure what they call it) and I'm in the works of hopefully working closer with them.

I'm jealous of your Alabama Book Festival! Here we don't really have anything close enough. Hopefully I can eventually make it to something.

The Alabama Book Festival sounds like a good excuse for a road trip. Bravo for taking initiative and talking to authors about your blog, I'm sure most of them appreciate the exposure blogs give their work.

Reading this has made me feel like asking my library wha can I do - they have practically no events other than a few todller things. Time for me to step up - as shy as I am :-)

Oh, Alabama Book Festival sounds AWESOME! It sounds like a local BEA indeed. <3 And I'm so jealous about the Teen Advisory Board! It's really cool since you can take part about what books your library should buy! x)

Thank you for following me! You have a very cute blog. <3 I follow you back now. x)

The Alabama Book Festival sounds very fun! And personally I think it's nice when events are closer to home-then you can relax and enjoy yourself without the stress of traveling a long distance.

It sounds like you've got a good handle on this networking thing. TABs are such a great resource for libraries & so much fun to work with! Tattooed Books
