2015 Summer Blogger Promo Tour: Wrap Up Post

The 2015 Summer Blogger Promo Tour is hosted by Amber and Jessica at The Book Bratz. The purpose of the summer-long tour is to get to know other book bloggers while promoting their blogs so that others can discover the many great bloggers in the book blogosphere.
Sadly, this is the final week of the tour, and that means that summer is coming to a close. Although summer technically still has a month left, Labor Day is the unofficial end to the seasons. Pools close. Schools open. Summer fades to fall.
It's been a great tour, and I got to know many new bloggers because of it. I probably would have never stumbled upon a few of the bloggers who were in my group if it weren't for the tour, so I am grateful to Amber and Jessica for organizing this wonderful event. I'll definitely be back for this next year!

First things First

A Recap of the Bloggers I Covered During the Tour:

Zoey from Uncreatively Zoey shared an excerpt from her work in progress, a fantasy novel about a young girl who assassinated a prince.

Alice from Wonderland Novels dropped by to share some shelfies (pictures of her bookshelves).

Amber and Jessica from The Book Bratz talked about their opinions on film adaptations of YA books.

Naomi from The Perks of Being a Bookworm wrote a heartfelt response letter to Charlie from The Perks of Being a Wallflower.

Nori from ReadWriteLove28 and I collaborated to bring you some quiz results. You can find Nori's results on my blog, and mine on her blog.

Lauren from The Tattooed Biblio dropped by to share her blogging journey with everyone.

Sarena and Sasha from The Writing Duo shared their favorite literary twins.

Danielle from BiblioSmiles shared some of her favorite school-assigned books with my readers.

What Next?

I already told you that I had a fun time participating in the 2015 Summer Blogger Promo Tour, so I'll probably sign up again next year. (It's hard to come to a one hundred percent consensus when I have no clue what I'll be doing next year.) But if I do sign up, I will probably stick to what I did this year as it worked out well.

On Meeting New Bloggers

When I got my group placement for the tour, I was thrilled to see three familiar bloggers. I'd frequented Amber and Jessica's blog a few times before, so I was excited to know that we were in the same group. But there was another familiar name and friend of mine in the group - Nori from ReadWriteLove28. Other than that, everyone was new to me!

I took the time to get to know the other people in my group through the group DMs, Twitter chats, and even exploring their blogs. It was fun to email everyone in my group to get to know them on a more personal level, and I now consider the bloggers in the list above as friends. I know that I'll be visiting their blogs more often in the future, and I can only hope that they feel the same way about me.

On Creativity

The best thing about the tour is the freedom to create whatever you and your partners want during the weeks that you cover one another! 

Creative freedom is something that scared me a little when I signed up, but it's really helped me out. Besides the posts and post ideas I had for the tour, I've had quite a few new ideas for my blog. Because of that, I feel like I've really grown as a blogger. You will be able to see me take a few risks with the blog as time progresses, and I'd like to thank everyone in my tour group for that. You've all inspired me to become a better blogger. 

In Conclusion

So to conclude this informal post about the 2015 Summer Blogger Promo Tour, I'd like to state that if you're a new blogger or if you didn't sign up, take the plunge and sign up next year. It's a great way to meet new people and have blogging friends for life. It's one the best blogging experiences that I've had thus far, and I'm so very happy that I joined Amber, Jessica, and the rest of the bloggers on the tour this year.

See You Next Year, Summer Blogger Promo Tour!
