The Book Blogger Buddy System, as originally launched in October 2012, was designed to foster direct connections and mutually supportive relationships between bloggers by playing "matchmaker" between pairs of bloggers with compatible interests, Buddy System 2.0 wants to bring that back, with a focus on creating mentor/protege matches between more- and less-experienced bloggers.
The Book Blogger Buddy System’s new home on Tumblr reflects a new emphasis on sharing experience and expertise. It’s a Q&A forum where you can submit questions about any and all aspects of book blogging--critical, technical, social, ethical--and get thoughtful, knowledgeable answers and advice. We hope it will be a place where newer bloggers can find guidance from blogging vets, and where vets can trade information with each other. The matchup form is live and linked at the Tumblr, too. Please submit your info if you're interested in a match--and once you've done that, please be patient! It may be a little while before we move ahead with that phase.
It's fitting that the Book Blogger Buddy System is launching as a group project this time around. This is the team behind the Tumblr:
Andi, Estella's Revenge
Florinda, The 3 R's Blog
Jenn, Jenn's Bookshelves
Stacy, The Novel Life
Teresa. Shelf Love
Come visit the Book Blogger Buddy System. Check out our mission statement, and bring your blogging questions (and answers)!
We learn from experience. Let's learn from each other's. The Book Blogger Buddy System http://t.co/uJIl9NgEaz #bookbloggerbuddy
