Armchair BEA Wrap Up

When I started this blog, I decided to do it on a bit of a whim. It was a completely conscious decision to not plan everything out in advance. I did not come up with any kind of schedule or S.M.A.R.T. goals. I had a lot of ideas, vague goals and some ideal directions, but it wasn’t until I started posting that I really solidified any particular path.

One of the things that I did not see coming when I took on this project is the way this community of bloggers, authors, and even publishers come together regularly online. Book Musings has opened up a whole world to me I did not even realize existed before 10 weeks ago.

Armchair BEA (or the BEA for that matter)  is one of those events that I had never heard a word about, but I am sure glad that I stumbled across it. I don’t even remember where I saw the announcement. I am however, glad I checked it out.

In my ABEA Introduction earlier this week, I mentioned that I did not have a lot of go to book bloggers on my radar. I am happy to say that because of the way the week was structured, coupled with the time that I invested in visiting the links posted, I have discovered a abundance of new (to me) book blogs and authors who I am excited to continue to follow, get to know and develop relationships with.

Here are some of my favourite discoveries this week!
