A Book Blogger Appreciation Week Meme!

Head over to Book Blogger Appreciation Blog on more info if you still feel you have NO idea about BBAW :)
I doubt anyone here doesn't know about BBAW :D

Do you want to participate in the meme? Go ahead!
Here are the questions for people who didn't participate last year ~~

1) What has been one of the highlights of blogging for you?

It definitely has to be meeting so many other book-bloggers. Getting to know them, reading their thoughts and be able to talk about books. It is a great pleasure to talk about your passion!
2) What blogger has helped you out with your blog by answering questions, linking to you, or inspiring you?
Well I think when I started I have done a HUGE post on this. It goes without saying that the book blogging community is the most generous lot of bloggers. They invariable help you out if you are a newbie! I started blogging because of Gautami :). I really need to mention Bethany, whose was one of the first blogs I discovered and who was kind enough to come back and comment on my stupid posts back then. Then I got to J.Kaye's blog. Anyone here would agree with me on the fact that J. Kaye is the most friendliest and the best blogger here. She showcased my blog on her's [ how very enthralling] and there were bloggers who came and congratulated me :) :) I was most touched with her generosity! Then there are other bloggers, who came and commented on my blog... and encouraged me to do better! Somehow I have come to love many of the girls behind the blogs, it will be injustice to name a few :) and I will feel bad if I don't mention Sandra, Beth F, Dar, Trish, Jill, Nely, Alea, Nicole, Anna, Serena, S. Krishna, Meryl, Iliana, Tricia, Joanna, Devourer of books, RuinedbyReading, VioletCrush and many more.
When I got married in Jan this year, I had to go off action for almost 6 months! In that time I lost my blog, my email id everything. And when I was back with a new blog, I felt so good! These people still remembered me! and they came back to my blog, to encourage me more! Special thanks to Beth F and Sandra for being one of the first to comment and make me feel like top of the world!
More recently I have discovered so many more blogs ~~ Melody, Amy @ Passages of the Past, Naida, Bermudaonion, Melissa ~~ I can't name them all right! And it goes without saying that if I comment on your blog.. I most definitely think your blog is great!
I take this time to personally thank each one of you and you too, Amy! Thank you for doing BBAW!
3) What one question do you have about BBAW that someone who participated last year could answer?
None right now! If I have I know there are you guys to help! Thank You!


Melody said...

Don't you love this bookblogging community?! :) I'm so happy to know so many friends online and not to mention receiving great book recommendations from them!

I'm glad Amy is hosting the BBAW again this year and I know it'd be even better and larger than last year!

Thanks for mentioning my name, Veens! I'm glad to discover your blog and most importantly, glad to know you! :)

Beth F said...

Awww! You are just so sweet! Of course we remembered you after you got married, disappeared, and then reappeared. Your reviews, posts, and comments are all great.

I'm going to do this meme too.

S. Krishna said...

J. Kaye was a big help to me as well when I first started blogging too! And I'm so glad you took the time to start a new blog - we missed you!

I love your post! It is so great to hear you talk about the community. I have been here for a whort time as well but feel as though I have made friends that I would love to meet in person and have coffee with. I think while on line, I probably have had coffee with some of them. :)

What a lovely post Veens. I guess we bloggers encourage each other during our problems. That’s what makes this place so special. Thanks to you too for being so nice and enthusiatic :)

Awwww thanks Veens. I've come to care about the gal behind this blog too. I see you've been changing it again. It looked different the other day. lol. I think I'm going to be changing mine soon too. I feel in need of a change again. I'm glad you're joining in BBAW again this year. It's going to be lots of fun!
