ArmchairBEA: Beyond the Blog

Today’s topic is going “beyond the blog”: monetizing, writing reviews at other places, invitations to events, etc.

I haven’t done anything beyond my blog except for recently getting approved to review books from NetGalley.  That’s really exciting but at the same time a little nerve-wracking as now there are people expecting a review.  And of course, if they have such confidence in their work, they want to see a good review.

I think it would be great to get my reputation to the point where  people would seek me out.  I would love to have the opportunity to be invited to special events because of what I write.   And I’d rather get the recognition for my reviewing before making money off of it.  Primarily, this is still a blog for pleasure, though.  And I enjoy writing about books and meeting other bloggers.  I would never want it to feel like a chore.

  1. Great news on NetGalley! I love your last sentence. It’s so easy for us to take something that we started for fun and turn it into something that doesn’t resemble fun at all. Cheers–
