I am so, so, so excited to announce that I will be co-hosting this year's Book Blogger Love-a-Thon with my awesome friend and forever awkward twin Katelyn (from Kate's Tales of Books and Bands)! It was really a lot of fun to be a part of this event last year, especially because I got to spread the love around the book blogging community alongside many other bloggers who joined in.
This year, the Book Blogger Love-a-Thon is back and better than ever! While we certainly will be keeping the spirit and most of the event from last year, there will definitely be a few changes and new things to mix it up. It's going to be bigger, better and even more fun than ever!
So, just to give you a rundown of some very important facts, check out this introduction post and feel free to sign up using the form at the end!
is this event all about? The Book Blogger Love-a-Thon is an entire day dedicated to spreading the love among blogs in the book blogging community. Throughout the day, you'll spend time leaving comments on blog posts, discovering new blogs to love, tweeting and posting about old favorites to share your thanks and promoting some of the awesome blogs that you follow! There will also be other things happening - interview swaps, mini-challenges and maybe a giveaway or two or three! We're still working on finalizing all the details, but once we have a set schedule, we'll send it out to everyone who's signed up!
is hosting? This year, the Book Blogger Love-a-Thon is being hosted by Katelyn (Kate's Tales of Books & Bands) and Alexa (Alexa Loves Books, which is obviously me!).
can participate? Authors, bloggers and even publishers are welcome to sign up to participate in various capacities. The only thing we ask is that you have a blog or a similar medium where you can post your responses to the mini-challenges!
is this happening? The Book Blogger Love-a-Thon will begin at 12:00AM EST on February 23, 2013 and end at 12:00AM EST on Feburary 24, 2013. (Please keep in mind that though it is a 24-hour event and we would love if you were around for its entirety, we also understand that real life/sleep may prevent you from doing so and that's okay!)
do I sign up for the event? Participants can join the event up until the actual day it happens! However, the sooner you sign up for it, the better. Not only does it allow us to get a better idea of how many people will be joining us, but it also allows you to receive the schedule in advance, and to be a part of the interview swap!
do I sign up? Signing up is easy! All you need to do is complete the form at the end of this post, and then grab the event button to add to your post or blog sidebar. Sharing about the event isn't a requirement, but we would appreciate it
can I help? It would be wonderful if you shared about the event, and should you decide to do so, please link back to this post or use the official Twitter hashtag (#LoveAThon). Also, if you're interested in donating to the giveaways or hosting one for the event, please let us know by emailing Katelyn (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Alexa (email@example.com) by February 6!
