There has been so much bitterness and spite and actions in the blogging world that have been making me upset and downright sad. I don’t like all the negativity. SO I thought I would make a post of rainbows and ponies, AKA me telling you all the people I love and think rock in the blogging world.
Danny from Bewitched Bookworms – This is a gal who leaves the best, most thoughtful comments ever. They seriously make my day like all the time. PLUS she has a rocking blog that I love to read. (I am seriously jealous of her mad graphic skills) (We also have the same opinion on a lot of books, which is rocking as well).
Sabrina from YA Bliss and Amber from Adventures in Amberland (formerly Just Your Typical Book Blog) – I am lumping these two gals together, because I seriously have some of the best conversations ever with these two ladies. I still have yet to meet them, but I hope some day the fates let this happen.
Kristi from The Story Siren – Not only is Kristi one of my favorite book bloggers, but she also is probably the nicest person I’ve ever met in my life. Like seriously. I had the best times with her at BEA the past two years!
Cat from Beyond Books – Cat is awesome. She is happy, awesome, and has dogs that are super cute (and I will steal someday). She also helped me with my French homework a few years ago, which was pretty rad.
Nina from Nina Reads – It is quite possible that Nina and I have like exactly the same taste in books (except for Brightly Woven, for which I think she is a crazy person). Her blog is on the newer end, and it already one of my all time faves.
Kate from Verb Vixen – Its crazy to think I only met Kate at BEA last year, because she is one awesome blogger. Her tweets are possibly the funniest things ever and I love reading her blog. And I can’t wait to see her at BEA this year :)
Alexa from Pages of Forbidden Love – Alexa is another blogger on the newer side and I pretty much instantly loved her blog. She is awesome to talk to and has great taste in books. I feel like I find out about so many new books from her blog, which rocks.
Sara from The Hiding Spot – Sara is totally one of my book signing buddies and I haven’t seen her in like a year (Woh, I didn’t realize it had been that long). PS. Sara if you are reading this, I MISS YOU.
Jessica from Chick Lit Teens – I’ve been reading Jessica’s blog since before I started mine and I still love it today! She’s one of my favorite bloggers, and she is super awesome and nice.
Heidi from YA Bibliophile – It was quite lucky when I met Heidi at Elizabeth Eulberg’s signing like 1.5 years ago, because she is one awesome person. I always have the best times with her at signings, and Kristi, Heidi and I had awesome times at BEA last year. Us sitting around talking at Juniors for like 2 hours, then sitting and talking books for awhile longer was my favorite memory of BEA :)
Mariah from A Reader’s Adventure – And they say you can’t meet people over the internet. It just so happened that Mariah and I were going to the same college, so this past fall when we both were at the Boston Book Festival, I creepily tweeted to her that we should meet up. So we did and now we are super great friends. Plus she has a cool blog.
I could go on and on about all the bloggers who rock. Seriously though, so many of the bloggers I have met have been just wonderful and I feel so blessed to have them in my life. Hanging out at signings with these people rock! And for those of you I haven’t met I TOTALLY HOPE I GET TO SOME DAY. :) Basically this is just me saying thank you for being awesome and keep being that way :)
And I encourage all y’all to spread the love, and tell someone (it doesn’t even have to be a blogger) that you appreciate them for how awesome they are.
