On a recent Book Riot podcast, based on the recent news that Book Expo (no longer Book Expo America) was limiting blogger participation, the hosts began a discussion about whether this was a sign book blogging has reached its peak (and maybe usefulness to the publishing industry, but that’s another discussion).
Since there are now thousands of us out there, it does make me curious about the future of book blogging. Will it survive? Will it move to another platform? Will it still be fun? Will bloggers still be able to make meaningful connections? Besides sharing my thoughts on books, building relationships I realize are important to me and it’s not easy since there’s a lot of content to get through to reach the person behind the blog.
How about you? Tell me what you I think.
