The fourth task in the Blog Improvement Project 2010 is to promote others in my group. There were quite a few different ways to fulfill this task, and I've been sort of unsure how to go about this. What I've decided to do is to take a few different days/posts to highlight a few different groups of bloggers. I feel bad sometimes highlighting certain people, because there really are so very many blogs I like. I would highlight my very favorites but don't want anyone to feel bad either. So, I figured breaking up into different groups would be good. So, the first bloggers I want to highlight are my fellow friends from paperbackswap. I'm sure there are probably lots of you on that site that I don't know about. But there are some people that I was friends with there before I ever started blogging! I joined the games community a few months after joining the site which was in May of 2007. The games were addictive and fun. They rapidly increased my TBR pile (no seriously, I went from 2-3 on TBR to 300-400 haha), and that is where I came friends with these girls. I didn't start this blog until around July of 2008, but didn't really get into blogging until a year later. Here are some of my fellow PBS book blogger friends.
Jennifer from Crazy for Books
--one of the friendliest people ever and very involved in any of the book "communities" which is evident in her recent popular Blog Hop feature! She and I have *almost* the exact same taste in books.
Rhonda from Once Upon a Time
--also super friendly and great taste in books. i've always alternated between Rhonda and Jennifer when I needed a moderator for a game I wanted to host. =)
Lori from Lori's Reading Corner
--known on PBS as the "book pimp" because she is THE go-to girl for book recommondations and upcoming releases!
Wendy from Wendy's Minding Spot
--i've only gotten to really know her more recently, but she's always been nice and friendly and I've always thought of her as one of the PBS veterans. =)
The above four are also game moderators, and I was fortunate enough to join them as a game mod a couple months ago!
Also from PBS are
Melissa from Coffee, Books, and Laundry
--also has great taste in books and I love her blog. for some reason one of the things I always remember is how she played in the NBA Finals game I hosted last year that went on forever. the game didn't quite work the way it was supposed to b/c of how small our group was, but she hung in there the whole time even though I know the game must have gotten frustrating, lol!
Kristen from Kristen's Always Reading
--I really haven't talked to Kristen specifically too much, but we have played in a lot of games together!
and although she only JUST realized who I was the other day (jennala9 from PBS) LOL
Deborah from Books, Movies, and Chinese Food
--her blog (along with Lori's) were probably the first ones I ever saw. Their blogs are technically what introduced me to the world of blogging, though it was still a little while before I started my own. It's been a while, but I played in some games with her too -- mainly Christian Fiction ones if I remember correctly.
So that's the group from Paperbackswap games. If I left anyone off, I apologize! It's late and my eyelids are getting really droopy! Stay tuned in the near future for my next group!
