The week of BBAW always flies by to me considering how far in advance we plan it. And we'll be getting an earlier start than ever on BBAW 2011 as we consider how things went this year.
I want to say thank you to all of you for this BBAW. Apart from Bluehost going down for several hours last night, it has been drama free and your joy and enthusiasm has been contagious. I have to admit there were times I wondered if BBAW would even happen this year as I was severely burned out from piling-too-much-on-my-plate syndrome. But thanks to some awesome volunteers (who will get a proper shout-out on the official blog) it happened! And I'm so glad because this week has reminded me of everything I love about book bloggers. The growth of this community and its amazing diversity continues to be something I truly appreciate and I hope maybe after this week the world appreciates it a little bit better, too.
So the highlight of BBAW for me has truly been book bloggers. :)
Now for a few goals. I just mentioned that piling-too-much-on-my-plate syndrome? My goal is to stop doing that. I want to read to become, to write what I'm inspired to write, and to focus on what builds me up. Life is hard enough without adding in more strife voluntarily online.
What are your goals?

Looking Ahead (BBAW)
