Armchair BEA Day 1: Introductions
Welcome to my first post for this year's Armchair BEA. I had fun last year when I first joined this event. And since I cannot attend BEA again this year, I am joining again and have our little own BEA online. :)
1. Please tell us a little bit about yourself: Who are you? How long have you been blogging? Why did you get into blogging?
Hi everyone! My name is Len but I go by the alias of Maidenveil. I have been blogging, I think since late 2009. But it wasn't until the first half of 2010 that I realized how I'm getting all serious about it.
I got into blogging primarily because I love books. I love reading, and when I realized there is an active book lover community online, I was thrilled to join. Initially in forums first, then went on to blogging to share books I loved, read, and recommend. Then discovered there's more to the book blogging community, and the rest was history as they say.
2. Tell us one non-book-related thing that everyone reading your blog may not know about you.
I am both a pastry baker and a counseling psychologist. Though my work now is more focused on food than counseling people. I guess I could say my specialty is food therapy. :D
4. What literary location would you most like to visit? Why?
Middle Earth or Hogwarts! BOTH! Who wouldn't want to visit Middle Earth? As long as I don't end up in Mordor, it will be awesome! And Hogwarts! As a wizard-at-heart, a visit to Hogwarts has long been due. :)
5. What is your favorite part about the book blogging community? Is there anything that you would like to see change in the coming years?
