Armchair BEA, Day Four: Beyond Your Blog
"Has blogging opened up opportunities for you beyond getting free,
advance copies of new books? Has it helped you get offers to write or
review elsewhere (maybe even for pay)? Have you gotten invites to
special events or places you might not have been to otherwise? Today,
we'd like you to talk about those opportunities in you own posts, and
later this morning, we'll have a guest post from one of our own Armchair
BEA team members, about her freelancing experiences."
Actually, I would love to receive free, advance copies of new books, and I would consider that a step forward in my blogging. I'm really trying to get more into the swing of things in the blogging world, especially the world of book blogging. And, yes, I would love to do some freelance writing, have my reviews posted elsewhere, and get invited to events due to my blogging. I would do it for free, although being paid is always a nice dream. Today will be a real learning experience for me as I read others' thoughts on what they are involved in and how to get there. I do post reviews on goodreads.com, which connects me to a wide variety of readers and where the comments are most encouraging. If I could connect to a publication and have reviews published, it would definitely be a dream come true. Now, I need to listen to all of the Armchair BEA voices of experience and take notes.
