Project: Book Bloggers Connected

There´s nothing more satisfying and frustrating than book bloggers. We´re like witches who can create fabulous magic but we can also be vicious little turds and crush anything with a few words.

Book Bloggers are a cruel lot.

They´re the people who give worthy or worthless opinions on books. They´re the people who authors rely on alot.

Book bloggers have an invisible power, you see. These people can work some serious magic and make new friends along the way.

I was at my favorite bookstore the other day. And as always, a sales lady walked up to me and started recommending books.

That moment, I felt an incredible sense of joy because I realized we were book blogging, face to face. Call it: Indirect book blogging ( because book blogging happens mainly on the internet).

We had a nice chat. Swapped ideas, likes and dislikes… We talked about the popular genres and how much they influence the book world.

One thing led to another and somehow we ended up exchanging social media links.

Mind you, our personal reading tastes went in complete opposite directions yet we still found we had more in common than not.

The love and appreciation for books. 

That´s when an idea hit me.

If book bloggers can meet on a neutral ground and discuss the rights and wrongs of the book world without making the discussion into a piss contest… Why not offer a neutral ground, a platform for book bloggers to connect!

The problem with the already existing book blogger groups / forums / chat rooms are:

There aren´t enough discussions and opportunities for bloggers. It´s always about pimping author X and making sure that author Y gets more exposure.

But what book blogger´s needs? What about sharing experiences or talking about the latest, wackiest book accessories?

That´s why I brought Book Bloggers Connected to life.

Book Bloggers Connected is a place where book bloggers are invited to chat about blogging and even create discussions ( light or deep, all are welcome ) for other fellow book bloggers.

    1. Oh, you too? I left all groups when I left my old blog. Most of the groups didn´t do anythin for me. Alot were just rant groups, whining groups… and many turned into self-help groups. Or, the groups were like a cemetery. I´m trying to gain bloggers who either want to improve their skill by exchanging experiences or maybe have fun book talk. But keep it book related. As of now, I´m trying to keep it light and bookish. There aren´t many members yet so we´ll see how it all pans out. I´d love to include you to the group if you ever feel like joining. If not then don´t sweat it. All´s good. I still see it as a project in the works. Maybe it won´t work out and I´ll throw it overboard. Maybe it´ll turn into something fabulous. All I want is for it to be fun. 🙂 But you´re more than welcome to have a peak, too, and then decide if the group is something you might enjoy or not. I´m up for everything.
