Book Blogger Appreciation Week--Community!

Book Blogger Appreciation Week (BBAW) has arrived!

And the theme for today is: Community
"While the awards are a fun part of BBAW, they can never accurately represent the depth and breadth of diversity in the book blogging community. Today you are encouraged to highlight a couple of bloggers that have made book blogging a unique experience for you."

For me, the words "blogging" and "community" means my kidlitosphere peeps. I wish so badly that I was going to be at Kidlitcon in Seattle next weekend... I can hardly think of anything I'd rather do than bask in the company of wonderful people who want to talk passionately and intelligently about children's books!

If I were to start listing all the children's book bloggers who have made a difference to my own blogging, it would go on forever. So I shall just give all my co-kidlitophere bloggers a collective "thanks so much for being such a great community!"

If you want to find out more about this thing called "the kidlitosphere," just click through! There is a Yahoo Group, where we ask each other blog questions and chat about our blogging lives, there's the annual conference--"kidlitcon", and a list of member blogs that cover every single aspect of children's books!

(when you look at that picture, does the circle have a crazed smile, which is what I see, or do you see the image as its creator intended--two people reading????)


  1. ::snicker::
    TECHNICALLY it could be a face... but with a very weird nose!!

  2. Ha, I see a crazy face, but then if I squint a little I get the two people reading.

  3. I saw the crazy face at first glance, but it turned into two readers after I stared at it for a bit. :)

  4. I can't see the face at all, just the readers. Does this mean I lack the crazy? :)

  5. I personally would rather not be seeing the face, Melissa! So I think you are the lucky one....

    (I wish I could stop seeing two kissing fishes in the cover of Across the Universe too!)

  6. love your idea of using this to embrace the whole of your blogging world.

  7. I'm so grateful for the kidlitosphere community too - just wish I could hang out with some of my fellow members in person (preferably at a bookshop!)
