I love reading book blogs for their reviews, discovering new books as I do, but I also love reading more about the bloggers I follow and their thoughts on reading and all things book related. Occasionally, I share my thoughts to – most often through linky’s but recently through discussion posts. It’s great hearing how people feel about the things I’ve said. These posts, though, beyond the linky’s, are few and far between and one of my blogging resolutions for next year is to write more.
The 2017 Book Blog Discussion Challenge runs from January 1st until December 31st, 2017 and you can sign up until the very last minute.
There will be a kick-off post on January 1, 2017 on both blogs and monthly after that to post your updates. There’ll also be monthly giveaways.
The challenge is to help get us discussing books and book blogging, so you can talk about whatever you want as long as it’s relevant to book blogging.
Discussions can be book related or book blogging related (or generally blogging related—no discussions about things that are completely off-topic like travel or fashion, etc). Discussions can also be about you personally if it’s a get-to-know-you type post.
There are a number of different levels depending on how much you feel you can accomplish:
1-10 – Discussion Dabbler
11-20 – Creative Conversationalist
21-30 – Chatty Kathy
31-40 – Terrifically Talkative
41+ – Gift of the Gab
I’m not that brave or sure of my abilities to come up with ideas so I’m going for 10 over the year – discussion dabbler. I’m not going to count linky’s I join in with to try and push myself to be creative in my posts.
Here’s how I’m doing…
- Simplifying my blog following ways
- Blogging rules (a.k.a. myths) I’m not very good at following
- Reading red lines?
- When is a discussion a discussion (or not?)
- Crime series I’m officially given up on catching up on…
- Rarely read genres; suggestions please?
