If you are still at daze on what ArmchairBEA is why not drop by on their website and get to know more about the event http://www.armchairbea.com/
Today's topic is about Networking and the positive experiences of using the blog. Blogging for almost a year now has been a whirlwind of a ride. And I think it has brought me positive things and some negatives along with it.
One of the positive things blogging has brought me is that I got involved more into reading. I have to admit I rarely read before I became a blogger. It was not a regular basis that I read though I love reading but it seems that it was not a priority. But I found a new calling, I enjoy reading and I make it a point to read on a regular basis.
In terms of Networking, I learn how to interact with other people more, social media is a great way of interacting with people with the same interest. Twitter is one of the best way to interact with these people, I became friends with some of my Twitter followers and we constantly discuss about books. I even met them in Lauren Oliver's signing.

Another thing I learn about blogging or book blogging in general is that you have to respect other people's opinion. I knew for the fact that people have different tastes in terms of reading. And by that I learn that people may or may not like the books you like. There was this book that I really love and then got a poor rating from other people. I was brooding at the start because I really love it but I learn how to respect other people's opinion and realize that I cannot change their mind about it.
I wish to talk about more of the positive things but I think I'm having the writer's block already. So before I get out of topic or even out of topic even more. I can say that blogging has generally brought me positive things.
What are the positive experiences you had using your blog?
