A few people have expressed to me that they would like to participate in an international blogging event, but cannot participate in the Book Read 'Round the World event I am running on my blog. Well, look no further! My friend Judith is running an event for book bloggers from around the world that will feature guest posts on her blog! She particularly is interested in book bloggers from Eastern Europe, South America, Africa, and Asia
From Leeswammes Blog:
As a book blogger, I enjoy meeting people from other countries and to discuss books. But what do we actually know about each other? What’s it like to be a book blogger in a far away country? Do you have access to the books you want to read? Do you have electricity failure or internet disruptions? Do you have limited time for blogging because you’re working full-time? Or do you have a housekeeper and plenty of free time?
And where do you read? Is it warm enough to sit in the garden under a tree, or is it much too warm or cold for that? Where’s your favorite book store? What’s your favorite national author?
I’m so curious to know more about you all, and I’m sure I’m not the only one.
So, would you like to participate in an international event? It’s going to be called Book Bloggers Abroad. Each week, I’m going to ask one guest blogger to answer these questions, preferably with some pictures (not necessarily of you, but of your favorite place to read, your book store, etc.). It’s a great way to tell us about yourself, your country, and to get new people find their way to your blog.
I hope to run this event for 15 weeks. If there is a lot of interest, we’ll run for longer, and maybe repeat some countries (with different participants).
Please visit Leeswammes' Blog to leave a comment to sign up for her event or e-mail her at jh303015 (at) gmail (dot) com.
It looks like it will be great fun! I hope you'll join her in creating a more visible worldwide book blogging community!
