For Day 3, we want you to share your positive experiences of using your blog to get involved in your community. This can involve partnerships with the local literary scene, attending author events and signings, or getting together with bloggers in your area.
Unfortunately, I haven't had any real life experiences involving my local book blogging community, but I hope this changes in the not too distant future.
Being from Australia, we don’t have a lot of bookish events which showcase the books or authors I read so I haven’t had the opportunity to attend signings etc.
For me, the positive experiences of blogging have been meeting other people online with the same love of reading that I have. None of my ‘real life’ friends are as interested in my hobby so blogging was my way of not only keeping all my thoughts on the books I have read in one place but also a place where I could learn about new authors and books and a way of meeting other book bloggers – this was done through Goodreads and on Twitter as well.
Through blogging, I have also had the opportunity to interview some amazing authors! Most recently Julie Kagawa who I adore – my dream is to one day attend an event where I will get to not only meet many of my favorite authors but the many friends I have made online as well.
