[Miscellaneous] Armchair BEA 2015 – Day 3: Blogging 101

Miscellaneous is the tagline to store random posts that don’t really belong elsewhere. They may involve tags, awards, challenges, and other book blogging nonsense.

What’s Miscellaneous Today?
Armchair BEA 2015 —
Day 3: Blogging 101

What is it?

Armchair BEA takes the essence of Book Expo America without actually being at the convention and makes the experience virtual. It’s hosted over at http://www.armchairbea.com from May 26-31 and the theme for 2015 is DiversityUse the hashtag #ArmchairBEA on twitter to keep up-to-date.


Day 3 looks at Character Chatter & Blogging 101. I’m forgoing Character Chatter because this one is contextually hefty to read about.

The “tips” below aren’t golden rules to live by; they’re observations from a year+ of niche blogging. (And for the most part, I have no idea what I’m really saying. So…there’s that to look forward to lololol.)

[Think Aloud] – #16 – Freedom of Speech in the Book Blogging Community

[Miscellaneous] – 2015 Discussion Challenge


I guess this is as good as any other time to talk about my goal of challenging myself (and all you thinkers) in the 2015 Book Blog Discussion ChallengePart of my resolutions this year involves shooting out more content, and while I was already intending on attempting one discussion per week (or every two weeks minimum), I figured this would [hopefully] give me more incentive to blog more consistently. My goal is to break into the “Chatty Kathy” category (perhaps the bro-counterpart is like…Kenny or something) with 25-36 discussion posts over the course of this year. As of late, I’ve found inspiration to write complain about a lot of things and have curated a bunch of nonsensical topics that I hope are as fun to read as it is to write.
