BLOGOVERSARY GIVEAWAY




Hello Lovelies!

I cannot believe my blog is ONE YEAR OLD TODAY! Where has the time actually gone?! This time one year ago today, it was a Sunday and I had finally decided that today was the day that I would set up my book blog. I had been thinking of doing a blog one year even before that and I did set it up, but I just never kept up with it and it didn't have a specific niche. It was a basically a blog for my ramblings, so this next blog was going to be all about books.


I honestly didn't think my blog would go very far. I thought I would write a few reviews and no one would really pay much attention to them, but I hadn't banked on the awesomeness that is twitter. I already had a twitter account with about 50 or so followers and following most things book related, so I started to get recommendations on who to follow and a lot of these were bloggers like me, so I started to follow them. It's hard to describe exactly, but twitter opened me up to a world crammed full of book reading fanatics just like me, who to be perfectly honest, I didn't know existed. I never really knew anyone that liked reading books just as much as me and here I was right in the middle of this amazing community full of book lovers, authors, publishing houses and the people that worked for them.

It probably sounds silly, but suddenly my life felt fuller, more full of purpose and I actually started to feel happier than I had done in ages. I have met online and some now offline fantastic people from all over the world since I started my blog. I have also read some incredible books that I definitely would not have read let alone even heard about if it wasn't for blogging. The people I met through twitter also kept me motivated to keep at my blog. Keep writing those reviews and reading those books and that's a big reason why I am still writing my blog one year later. I admit there have been times where I have felt like giving it up as it is like having a second job sometimes, but it is more than a job, it is fun and enjoyable and I'm more than sure I will be writing a similar post this time next year.

So to say thank you to all the wonderful people that I have met and supported me throughout the year I am of course doing a GIVEAWAY! And it is of course INTERNATIONAL so everyone can enter :D
