BBAW: The Inspiration
I call myself a "baby blogger"...I just started my book blog on Blogger around the first of August this year. Now I had been dabbling in blogging over on MySpace, but I didn't really think of myself as a serious book blogger. Enter Twitter around mid-July and that's where it all started. I met Ryan and we became mutual followers. I visited his website listed on his profile and was introduced to Wordsmithonia. I read several posts and looked at his layout, etc. and I thought to myself, "This looks like fun. I could do this!" And that's how The Book Addict started. Ryan's Wordsmithonia inspired me to be a better blogger. To create a blog that I was proud of and passionate about and, above all, to blog about the greatest loves of my life (after my children)...BOOKS! I will forever be in Ryan's debt for his inspiration (and he helped me figure out how to do a three column layout on my blog). I was very excited when Wordsmithonia was nominated for Best New Blog for BBAW. Unfortunately, Ryan's wonderful blog did not make the shortlist for his category. I honestly feel that there is stellar content on his blog. I know he will be recognized by BBAW again in the future.
I would like to share with you my favorite post (so far) by Ryan entitled Favorite Fictional Characters--The Lady of Shalott. Please click the title and check out this wonderful post. While you're there, browse around. I promise, you will not be sorry. In fact, you may just be inspired yourself!
Thank you Ryan...for your friendship and inspiring me to be the best blogger I can be.
