For getting only 6 hours of sleep I woke up feeling surprisingly chipper Friday morning. I had breakfast with some bloggers and an author at the BBC dining area then listened to the opening/keynote speech. Then it was time for the panels. I spent the first two hours flitting back and forth between the panel on time management and the one called Ask the Publisher/Publicist. One of the best things I heard in the P/P panel was that reviews of ARCs can go up whenever the book is available for preorder - now THAT is helpful to know.
I ate lunch with Raych from books i done read and her lovely artist sister. This made me very happy as Raych was one of the people I most wanted to meet in person.
After lunch it was time for my panel on the Grey Areas of Blogging. I hope someone took pictures because I didn't. I'll write up a summary of what we discussed and post it later this week, but for now I'll say that it went smoothly and I hope people got something out of it.
The final panels of the day were on technology and niche blogs. I spent some time in each one but also hung out chatting with a few lovely bloggers. Then it was time to go. SAY WHAT?!?! I cannot believe the day went by so fast.
