BBAW: Future treasures

We’ve nearly reached the end of Book Blogger Appreciation Week 2010! Today’s prompt asks: “share what you enjoyed about BBAW and also what your blogging goals are for the next year!

Although I’ve been more than a little overwhelmed at a number of points this week (This thing is huge, y’all!), I’ve enjoyed BBAW immensely.

But first, I wanted to answer yesterday’s prompt, since I didn’t yesterday. A book that I love, that I feel deserves more attention: Lying Awake by Mark Salzman [my review]. While I haven’t been nearly as impressed with the other Salzman books I’ve read, this one was fantastic. But OK, enough of that. Back to today’s topic.

In particular, I’ve enjoyed:

  • Seeing the immensity of the book-blogosphere anew.
  • Finding more than a few fabulous new-to-me blogs to add to my Google Reader. (Not too many, Honey, I promise!)
  • Getting to know a few bloggers a bit better, by reading their interviews, for example.
  • My husband getting in on the action by designing a fun BBAW mascot.
  • Knowing I’m not alone in feeling overwhelmed by this thing.

And now for the other half of that prompt.


  • In October:
    • New theme (I’ve got it all picked out, I just need to take the time and implement it.)
    • New buttons, etc., to go along with it.
  • ASAP:
    • New medallion, and a post explaining it.
    • Reading Manifesto (finish, polish, publish)
  • Ongoing (but I haven’t told you about it yet, and still relatively new):
    • Be more open, vulnerable, real.

I realize some of this may be cryptic, and I promise that isn’t my intention. I want to write posts as I roll out these new things, and if I explained it all here, this post would be entirely too long to read (or write!) at the end of a very long week. So, I guess if it’s cryptic, that’s the way it’ll have to be. For now.

  1. May you keep reading wonderful books and blog about those for us!

    Here is my BBAW: Forgotten Treasures post!

  2. Cryptic, yes. 😀 Looking forward to learning what it all means!

  3. uh, what? LOL 🙂 Can’t wait to read the Reading Manifesto!

  4. It’s been such a great week! I have to tell you that I had a dream last night that you had published a book. Don’t ask me where that came from.

  5. I’ll have to check out your review of the Salzman!! Thanks for the recommendation!

  6. I can’t wait to see your new layout.

  7. Oooo…so secretive. I can’t wait to see the new design and all the changes!

  8. I’m curious to see the new layout.. Which reminds me that I should probably start working on one myself, but I always find it so hard to come up with one that works?

    • Yeah, I was looking for one for more than a year before I found one that had all (or even most of) what I wanted. Good luck! (But I think your site looks fine as-is, you don’t need to change it.)

  9. Can’t see these goals come to fruition 🙂

  10. Um, I meant ‘can’t wait’! The way I typed it first is pretty insulting, sorry.

  11. good luck! with your new goals.

  12. You have such fun plans. I didn’t do a BBAW wrap up post and kind of wish I had. I am excited to see some of the changes you are making.

What do you think? I'd love to know.
