Reintroducing the #SFATW feature: book bloggers sharing the love

Hello friends, happy Sunday! I hope you had a lovely week. Today I am thrilled and also very nervous to reintroduce you to something started over a year ago now on this very blog, called…the Souvenirs From Across The World feature.

After a couple, much needed months away from it, I really want to give this one a try again, hoping you will want to participate and enjoy it. Alright, I’m all nerves as I am writing this but I’m going to try and keep this short and fun, hoping you’ll enjoy – enjoy again, for those of you who already knew this feature – what’s coming…

Souvenirs From Across The World: 3 keys points to reintroduce the #SFATW feature

๐Ÿ’ป CONNECTING WITH OTHER BOOK BLOGGERS

Connecting with other book bloggers has always been one of the biggest reasons why I wanted to blog in the first place, and it is without a doubt what kept me going for so long. With a community this big, coming from everywhere around the globe, it’s sometimes hard to find your kind of people, or simply, to know where you should start looking. Souvenirs From Across The World was, and will be forever meant for that: to forge connection, hopefully friendships and strengthen a sense of community between everyone.

๐Ÿ‘ซ๐Ÿ‘ฌ๐Ÿ‘ญ GETTING TO KNOW EACH OTHER BETTER IN THIS HUGE COMMUNITY

The book blogging community is huge and it might be hard to find each other, or find common points with each other, find a way to strike up a conversation without being shy, or having a silly but genuine fear of being annoying. Whether you’ve been blogging for years or months, we all have these silly fears. With Souvenirs From Across The World, I want to introduce or re-introduce bloggers, facilitate blog hopping and maybe find some new blogging friends, who knows!

๐Ÿ’ž ๐ŸŽ SHARING THE LOVE FOR BOOK BLOGGERS

Third and totally non-obligatory part is being able to share the love for books in a less virtual way: by sending each other GIFTS. Is there anything more exciting than getting bookish mail, I ask? From blogging friends? I don’t think so.

๐Ÿ”Ž HOW DOES EVERYTHING WORKS?

The launch of this new version of Souvenirs From Across The World is going to happen in two parts:

  1. Getting to know each other: anyone can and should participate by answering very simple questions stated below. I will do THE ultimate blog post where I introduce every blogger participating and from here, it’s up to you to blog hop, find new bloggers, TALK and have fun!
  2. Sharing the love: this part will happen a little later on, upon subscription, you will be paired with another blogger and be able to send GIFTS, BOOKS and love, YAY.

To prevent any questions: you will be able to choose how much you want to send and where – internationally or locally, according to your budget. You will also be able to choose if you want to go for the Book Depository Option: send a book to a blogger without the hassle of posting services and everything ๐Ÿ˜‰ For more details, the master post describing everything is right here.

Here comes the nervousness… hoping you people will want to participate to this revamped version of #SFATW!

 

๐Ÿ‘ซ๐Ÿ‘ฌ๐Ÿ‘ญ GETTING TO KNOW EACH OTHER: THE BLOG-HOPPING PARTY

To participate in the first part of this project, which is overall a tiny blog-hopping party, all you need to do is leave a comment on this post indicating that you want to participate with these little info:

  • Your name & the name of your blog
  • A couple of your favorite books

In a couple weeks from now, a master-post will appear on this blog, listing ALL of the participants: basically you will be able to discover blogs easily thanks to this list, blog-hop and overall, have fun!

If you want to participate to the blog-hopping and be featured in my master post, you can leave a comment until June, 16th.

If you’re thinking about sending gifts to another blogger, you should participate to this first part in order to get to know everyone and discover who you’ll potentially be paired with! Once the master-post with all the blogs is up live and after a couple weeks, you will be able to officially subscribe to the second part and send gifts to another blogger!

Thank you for reading! I hope you will be interested in participating, costs nothing and find out about new bloggers maybe?!

Thoughts, ideas – whether you want to participate or not are welcome – let me know what you think about this ! If you have any questions about everything, don’t be afraid to ask as well!

    1. It’s pretty easy: as I summed it up in my post,
      1. In a couple weeks, there will be a big post with all of the participants and from there, you’ll be able to blog-hop and find new bloggers ๐Ÿ™‚
      2. For the people wanting more, they will be able to subscribe to send real books to other bloggers ๐Ÿ™‚
      And if you have more questions, I’m here! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Agh I would totally participate in this! But I’m going out-of-country in the last week of June, so that might conflict with things. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Plus, my parents are QUITE protective and I don’t think they’d want me giving out addresses, even though I know fellow bloggers won’t do anythinganything! I LOVE the sound of this project though, hope it goes well, and am looking forward to reading more about it! ๐Ÿ˜€

    1. Oh I understand, May, don’t worry! Thank you so, so much for your support! โค Also, if you want to, you can still participate to the first part of this project: you just have to give your name + blog + a couple of your favorite books. IN a couple weeks, there will be a big blog post with I'm hoping at least a couple of blogs, yours included if you want, and people will blog hop from this list ๐Ÿ™‚ This is a no-commitment-thing, if you're on the list you don't have to send actual gifts afterwards, it's just to get to know other bloggers and spotlight you as well ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m always looking to make new blogging friends but I’m super shy. I have this complex where I assume that by reaching out to people I’m annoying them *shrugs* but yeah. I’m living on a budget at the moment BUT I also have a bunch of books I don’t need anymore that I’d love to pass on ๐Ÿ™‚

      I understand your feeling – I’m hoping to help bloggers this way. Bloggers – me included – always love getting new comments, long comments, fangirling and talking with new people, at least I know I do and your comments always make me smile ๐Ÿ™‚ โค
      Also, about the budget: you can always think about it and when the gifts part of the project comes around, if you can't send anything, it's okay. You're not signing up already to send something and can always change your mind ๐Ÿ˜€

      1. To be completely honest We are the ants is one of the best books I’ve read, I really enjoy the way it blends end-of-the-world scenarios and the story and I feel like it was one of the most emotionally realistic?? Like sad things happened but they were all realistic and not just like the author was trying to make you sad (which is the case in a lot of books I read..) but it’s not for everyone, because I know that May read it and she didn’t like it at all. I would definitely add it to your tbr list just so you can say you read it though ๐Ÿ™‚

        Liked by 2 people

      2. Oh well you certainly convince me to add it to my TBR! I get it, sometimes some books feel like they are trying too hard to make us feel things and make us cry, which basically kills every feeling we might have ahah – if that makes any sense? ๐Ÿ™‚

    My favourite books are the Shatter Me trilogy by Tahereh Mafi, A Court of Thorns and Roses trilogy/series by Sarah J. Maas, Grisha trilogy by Leigh Bardugo (I have yet to read Six of Crows but Kaz Brekker is my baby), the Legend trilogy by Marie Lu (wow Jackie, what’s with all the trilogies XD) and Geekerella by Ashley Poston.

    I can’t think of any more books because I’m bad at remembering things but YEAH. I can’t wait for this project โค

The post is coming this afternoon – it’s morning as I am writing this – but I will add you to it if you want to, no problem! ๐Ÿ˜€ I’m so happy you want to be part of it โค

  38. Hello! Not sure if it’s too late to join or not (totally understand if it is) but just in case…

    I’m Melanie and my blog is A Taste for Books at atasteforbooks.org

    I’m a huge fantasy fan, so Harry Potter, Six of Crows, the Grisha Series, Strange the Dreamer, and the Mistborn Trilogy are a few of my favorite reads!

    This sounds like a wonderful experience, so hopefully, I’m not too late! Signed up for the swap too!
