Hi! Today marks the 3rd day of Armchair BEA where we talk about our favorite couples and blogging in general :)
It's time to give your favorite characters some love! Characters are essential to a story, and they can make or break a book for some readers. Now's your chance to shine the spotlight on your favorite characters, or maybe your least favorite. Who's your favorite couple? What are the components of a well written character? What are you favorite or least favorite cliches associated with characters?
This is a really hard question....I have to many favorite characters to even know where to begin lol...I'm going to go old school and say Nancy Drew because without her I don't think I would have found my love of reading. :) My favorite couple I would say would be Edward and Bella from Twilight and more recently I would say Penelope and Char from Hold Me Like A Breath by Tiffany Schmidt.
Blogging 101. All kinds of tips and tricks to get you started or keep you going. Talk about ARCs, reviewing in general, web design, etc. What blogging platform do you use? How do you network? What are some of your favorite web designs? Or maybe you want to talk about your own blogging journey, and how you got to where you are now. Either way, we want you to share your knowledge with the rest of the community!
ARCs...when I first started out I would email tons of authors and publishers every day trying to just put myself out there. If they would provide an ARC that would be awesome and if not no big deal I would just see if I could get an interview or guest post instead. So in regards to ARCs I would just say don't give up. My reviews here are usually short and sweet and to the point. So if your reviews aren't super long thats ok just as long as you get your point across about how you liked the book. I love web design! If it weren't for book blogging I would not have found my love of web and graphic design....I even went so far as to major in it now that I'm in college :) I love changing up my designs and in fact the design I am using now I just designed a few days ago. I am currently working on networking through mediums such as twitter because I am not a big social network user but I'll get there :). It's definitely been a long journey in book blogging. For two years I consistently posted every day or every other day but as soon as I started college it got really hard to balance college, life, and blogging/reading to where my blogging really just kinda stopped and I didn't read as much. Now, I'm trying to find that balance because I really love blogging and the book blogging community itself and I love being able to share my love of reading with other book lovers.
