Happy Blogoversary to Me

I find it hard to believe that I created this blog only a year ago.  It certainly doesn’t feel like I’ve been blogging that long, but then again, I really haven’t.  I posted a few times a month; I didn’t really get going until the summer time, when I got to meet all you awesome bloggers and got welcomed into the community.

I suppose I should post a goal, yes?  Well, my goal is to create more resources for my followers.  I’m not quite sure what that entails yet but I’m hoping to figure out in the next year. :)

So honestly, being my blogoversary, I thought I would be the one getting stuff but in the blogosphere, it’s the other way around. XD  I think of Blogoversaries like birthdays, you know? LOL.  So.  I will be having a giveaway but I’m still figuring the details out.  I do have those three books (Fallen, Torment and Halo) that I mentioned I’ll be having a giveaway with, but I want something for Valentine’s Day too, since it’s right around the corner.

FYI:  My blogoversary giveaway is meshing with my 200 followers giveaway.

Truly, I am thankful for all the awesome bloggers I’ve been in contact with over the past year (or since the summer, whichever).  A special shoutout to Linna @ 21 Pages, Mariam @ Mariam Maarouf, Kirthi @ Pages, Eleni @ La Femme Readers and Ash @ Smash Attack Reads.  These lovelies have been the most influential to me since I really started going.  Linna and Kirthi were one of the first bloggers I contacted for advice (which I still follow).  Mariam is my fantastic Egyptian author friend.  ^_^  Her book?  Fantastic.  I already know it.  Even though I haven’t read it.  She’s fantastic, so her book will obviously reflect that.  Duh.  Eleni is a more recent awesome blogger friend, but her emails are freaking hilarious and she’s my underground book provider. ;) And possibly, the only person capable of turning down book offers  from me.  Must be the Brooklyn attitude.  Oy.  XD  And Ash!  Oh my goodness.  My best blogger friend ever.  Always willing to patiently sit through a hysterical email (she thinks those are funny XD) and offer good, sound advice to soothe my insane teenage brain.  (HAPPY BIRTHDAY, CHICA!) (AKA: Did ya’ll know that my blogoversary is the day before Ash’s birthday and her blogoversary is the day before my birthday?  Totally crazy!)

Without ya’ll, I would have totally given up.  I wouldn’t have made it through the summer but I have and I’m having so much fun blogging with ya’ll!  (And getting laughed at for saying “ya’ll” so much. XD)

Stay tuned for giveaway details! :)
