How are your points adding up?

Earn your way to #SIBA15.  How are your points adding up?  You can always sign into your master account at YM and see. or you can get there through the Member Hub button at  And you get a point for signing in to your account.  And if you stay signed in and do a few things while you are in there, you can earn more points. 

To see your points, click on Manage Profile to the right.  Under Information & Settings, click on Edit Bio, and you will see your points in the box next to B3! Total. While you are in Edit Bio, let’s earn a few more points.  Scroll to the bottom and add in social networks that are not there for 1 point each.  Remember to save your changes.

Again, under Manage Profile, this time under Content & Features, click on Photo Gallery.  This is where you can upload photos for 1 point each.  I think you can see my four-point upload here.

To create a connection, once signed in, click on Member Search and right above the Basic and Advanced Search buttons, you should see a tiny Who’s Online Now?  Click on that and hover over any members you see and in the pop-up, click on Make a connection.

Finally, visit the Peer Brain Trust by hovering over Member Resources and then hover over Peer Brain Trust to see all of the categories.  Visit a few categories and see what is missing and email with something new from you that can be added to that section.


·         Log in to the SIBA Member Hub – 1 point

·         Register for the SIBA Discovery Show or SIBA in the Springtime– 5 points

·         Upload a picture to the SIBA Gallery – 1 point

·         Add a social network to your SIBA account – 1 point

·         Create a new connection with another SIBA member profile – 1 point

·         Provide a resource to the Peer Brain Trust – 3 points


So a few of these, once you do them, you cannot do them again, like register for the show, or add your social networks, but creating connections, uploading photos, and submitting for the Peer Brain Trust could be weekly activities earning an additional 15 points a week by adding six photos, making six connections, and providing a weekly resource to the Peer Brain Trust.  So get to work and earn your way to #SIBA15.

 The Reba & Dave Williams Foundation for Literature and the Arts gifted SIBA with money to assist core members in attending the show and rather than just hand the money out, SIBA has created B3! Building Better Booksellers where you can earn points that will get your travel, hotel and all-passes for the upcoming show.  It takes 5000 points to get it all covered. And if you got diligent on June 1, that gives you about 100 days and at 50 points a day, you’d have it all covered.
