FLYLeF's 2nd Anniversary Celebration and Giveaway


FLYLēF turns 2! To celebrate, an amazing group of bloggers and I have planned posts for you to enjoy, all centered around the theme...

FRIENDSHIP

Please make sure to visit them, and perhaps make a new friend along the way.


 FRIENDSHIP 

Friendship comes in all shapes and sizes.  And these days, with the internet and social media, a friend can even be someone you've never actually met in person.  I feel like I have made so many friends through blogging, and so when I do get a chance to meet them in person, it is even cooler!  I have so many fellow bloggers that stop by and visit me all the time, and I try to make sure to get back to them as well! Then there are those bloggers I follow by email and make sure to try to comment on their blogs when I get a chance as well.  Every year I blog I meet more and more great people as I find new bloggers as well as running across the blogs of those that have been around awhile.

Along with bloggers, I feel that I have been able to form friendships with authors through blogging as well. One of the first authors I feel that I really became friends with was Cara Lynn Shultz, author of Spellbound, Spellcaster, and The Dark World.  We bonded on Twitter over favorite songs, movies, and tv shows. When I went to NYC to visit my sister for the first time back in 2011, she followed my travels as I did the touristy thing, and then when I asked if she might want to meet up with me somewhere, I got the chance to hang out with her and I feel make a new friend.  Recently I feel there's another author that I've become friends with, Nicole Archer, author of Road-Tripped and Head-Tripped.  Again, I "met" her through blogging by reviewing her book and then just really communicating through Facebook with her.  I hope one day to get to meet her in person.


 TESTIMONIAL 

I "met" Lonna fro FlyLef last year when I found the Comment Challenge that she hosted along with Alicia from A Kernel of Nonsense blog.  Through that wonderful challenge, I've made many other blogger friends, people I might not have found without participating in this challenge.

  1. How fun! I love all the bloggy friends I've met online. I know going to BEA last year I was finally able to meet some new ones, and it was great! I'm headed to ALA next month and I'm already planning to do a dinner or something with two bloggers that I met last year and would love to see again.

    1. Well, happy anniversary to you! I think author friendships are pretty similar to just regular friendships, since they kinda are just regular people. The ones that I feel I've become friends with are ones that I just seem to have things in common with, as well as same personalities or sense of humor, etc. Thanks for coming to comment today!

  9. I'm trying to clear space on my shelves so I'm binge-reading all of Thomas Harris' Hannibal Lecter novels! Then they'll go to a charity shop where, knowing me, I'll pick up another armful so I'll be back at square one :)
