It's a Wrap - #ArmchairBEA

by Donna Huber

So another ArmchairBEA has come to a close. This was my fifth year and usually I'm exhausted afterwards, but not this year. I didn't try to do everything. I always love the Twitter parties, but they are probably the most hectic part of the event so I passed on them this year.

I did some of the Instagram Challenges.

And of course I did the daily topics, but I kept it short.

Day 1: Introductions & Diversity in Books
Alison also contributed an awesome post on Diversity in Books

Day 2: I talked about book covers and blog design

Day 3: I discussed audio books and ways that I've taken what I've learned blogging and applied it to my real life.

Day 4: I listed a few fictional worlds I would like to visit and there's a giveaway! (You have until noon on Monday to enter)

  1. Wonderful week...wonderful post.

    Thanks for sharing. I love that book cover...very different and clever.

    I can't see what you applied to work...can you explain please? That is great.

    I enjoyed the Twitter parties too. I used TweetDeck. I had never heard of it before, and it worked quite well.

    ENJOY this week.
