Please tell us a little bit about yourself: Who are you? How long have you been blogging? Why did you get into blogging?
I’m Giselle! I’m a BO-OK NERD from Canada, and I’ve been blogging for about a year, more specifically November 2011. I got into blogging because my love for books is so simple, all I want to do is spread the book love around.
Where in the world are you blogging from? Tell a random fact or something special about your current location. Feel free to share pictures.
I’m blogging from a city near Toronto, Ontario, Canada. I live near enough where I can still travel to attend book events in the city 😛
Toronto is a diverse and multi-cultural city so you can find people from all countries just by standing in line at Tim Hortons. Canadians are known to be super friendly and we are. If you bump into someone by accident, they’ll say “Sorry!” when it was you who bumped into them in the first place. LOL
Have you previously participated in Armchair BEA? What brought you back for another year? If you have not previously participated, what drew you to the event?
Nope, I haven’t participated in Armchair BEA before, so I’m super excited to join this time. Since not everyone can attend BEA every year, I thought it’d be a great way to meet new bloggers and talk books. I especially wanted to find people with similar book tastes as me!
Which is your favorite post that you have written that you want everyone to read?
My favourite post series I wrote has to be The Newbie’s Guide to Book Blogging. It’s not finished, but it’s also one helpful guide for new bloggers. I really enjoy helping and writing so the advice works well for everyone.
What is your favorite part about the book blogging community?
I know this is going to be the most similar answer, but it’s getting to talk books with every single book lover around. I’m normally a shy person when it comes to talking and just generally being social with anyone but my closest friends, but once I start talking about a book, it all goes away and the focus is books. I’m also in love with Twitter because this is where everyone gets to talk to everyone around the world. It’s a lot of fun and I wished more people used it.
