BBAW Nomination

In case you hadn't heard the buzz around the blogosphere, Book Blogger Appreciation Week has been announced.  You can find all the details at the Book Blogger Appreciation Week blog. 

One of my favorite parts of the whole week are the blog awards.  Well, this year, the nomination process for the awards has changed.  Now, I've never been one to toot my own horn, but in this case, it's expected.  In order to be considered for an award, I have to choose 5 links from my own blog that will best fit the niche that I'm nominating my blog for.  I could only choose one, and it was hard for me to do that.  But, since I started my blog as a KidLit blog, that's the niche I chose.  The following links are the ones that I feel best showcase this.  What do you think?

Because of A Book with Cindy Hudson - this is a weekly feature that I do on my blog where bloggers, authors, or publishers share about books from their childhood, that shaped them as a writer, reader, or person.

Children's Book Week Kick-Off - I started this last year and work together with authors and publishers to host a week long celebration of children's books with guest posts, interviews, reviews, and giveaways.

Hailey Twitch is Not a Snitch - book review

Artsy-Fartsy - book review

The Magic School Bus and the Climate Challenge - book review

So, why don't you enter your own blog in a category?  The awards list and nomination instructions can be found at Awards & Nominations.  Check it out for yourself...what are you waiting for?

Hi Shelley,
How great that because of BBAW I've discovered your blog! I love your 5 posts you've selected - you clearly have great contacts in the book world and I really like how clear your reviews are with the separate sections - makes it really easy and fun for me to read. Best of luck with the awards process :-)

Loved your review of Artsy-Fartsy as well as The Magic School Bus. Good luck with BBAW! I was definitely apprehensive about nominating myself, but this is so much fun! And it's definitely helping me get out of my shell to do a little more commenting and not so much lurking. :o)
