A Shout Out to Some Fellow Bloggers!!! (Part 1)

Tuesday, March 23, 2010

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!

This is going to show my complete ignorance at PBS...I didn't even know about the games!!! ahhh, what a fool for love i've been...or some silly song....can you tell it's late here too?!?!
but i have to go sign in to PBS and find me some games to play =]

Melissa said...

love your blog as well Jenny. One of the few that I really keep up with.

I've taken a hiatus on the games but I definitely need to jump back in..i'm missing the fun.

Jennifer (Crazy-for-Books) said...

Aww.. thanks, Jenny!! You were one of the first friends I made on PNS! :)


Jenny said...

Stacy -- LOL! They are fun but they can get addictive!

Melissa -- Thanks. =) I've only played a handful in the last year too. I think with keeping up with blogging the games have sort of taken a backseat.

Jennifer -- =)

Great recommendations :)

Trisha said...

I love the idea of acknowledging other bloggers by groups! What a fun and fair way to highlight bloggers. I may have to steal this....*eyeballs the post sneakily*

Jennifer (Crazy-for-Books) said...

I should really proof my comments.. **sigh**

Of course I meant PBS, not PNS... maybe I should've just called it PMS, but I don't get that anymore..


I'm also sneakily eyeing this idea.. I have no clue how to tackle this task!!

This looks like an interesting game...Congrats. to the winners!

Nicole (Linus's Blanket) said...

Great idea to hook up with bloggers on PBS. I am sure you get the advance notice on good books that way. Fun stuff!

Jenny said...

Juju -- sure! I would recommend any and all of them!

Trisha -- haha, feel free to steal it!! =)

Jennifer -- LOL, yeah I figured you meant PBS =) Feel free to take the idea!!

Laurel -- lol, these are just a list of girls that I already knew from a different book site where we played games

Nicole -- yup! We generally find out pretty early when a book is added into the system.. sometimes we are the ones actually adding them in! =)

Michelle (Red Headed Book Child) said...

I didn't know PBS could do so much. I've used it a little bit but haven't really figured it all out!
Cool. Thanks for bringing attention to these ladies, some of which I follow as well.
