After the last Book Blogger Appreciation Week, I decided to regularly feature new bloggers I’ve found. I haven’t been doing a great job of doing this regularly. I’m going to try again! I’ve named this feature “Silver and Gold” after the scouting rhyme I used to sing. I plan on featuring bloggers I’ve been reading a long time and bloggers new to me.
Make new friends, but keep the old: One is silver and the other gold.
These are not all the bloggers I meet at BEA. I’ve selected a few to share with you; I’m saving others for another day. Some of these are new-to-me bloggers and others I’ve been reading for a long while.
- I stood in line for a while with Pam from MotherReader.com. She blogs about children’s and teens books, and recently hosted the 48-hour book challenge.
- While waiting in a different line, I also met Lisa, a librarian from New Jersey, who blogs at Shelf Employed, also about children’s books.
- Kim from Sophisticated Dorkiness and I started our blogs at about the same time. Kim blogs about literary nonfiction and fiction, and it was so fun to finally meet her at BEA.
- Heather from Age 30+ Books was one of the first bloggers I met at BEA. Heather blogs about all different kinds of books, from fantasy to nonfiction and literary fiction.
- Colleen from Books in the City is a new-to-me blogger: she blogs about fiction, especially immigrant stories. Since I’m fascinated by my own immigrant ancestors, this sounds very interesting to me.
- Anastasia at Birdbrain(ed) Book Blog writes about classics a lot. But I also have to give her a shout out for her recent awesome post about Retro summer reads.
That’s it for now. As I said, I met tons of other bloggers, new and old at BEA! I’ll highlight some more in the next Silver and Gold spotlight.
Have you visited these awesome bloggers?
