Happy Belated Blogoversary To Me!!!

Well, I can't believe I missed my own blogoversary! Shame on me. It was on May 6th! All of March and April I kept reminding myself it was coming up...and then I just blank. And the only reason I even remembered at all was because I saw the post for Martina's blogoversary over at She Read A Book (stop by and drop her a note too!). So happy belated blogoversary to me!

It has been a CRAZY year and I can't believe it has gone by so fast! I started this blog on a complete whim - I had no idea what I was going to do or even if ANYONE would read it. I remember being so excited to have 10 followers - and I'm glad you have all stuck with me! I started out just reviewing my own books and this thing has grown into a thing of its own - it shocks me sometimes to see how far I have come.

Some things that have happened over the last year:
  • Made some amazing friends that I will keep in touch with for a long time
  • Attended many author events (and even one of them knew who I was!
  • Graduated college/started a job (which have really changed my blogging schedule!)
  • Joined HFBRT and taken part in some amazing events
  • Was a part of Book Blogger Appreciation Week
  • Improved my reviews and posts
  • Did a major blog overhaul
  • And plan on attending BEA and Book Blogger Con

I just cannot believe it! Thank you to everyone who has stuck by me since the start and those that are just joining in on the fun. I am excited to be kicking off year 2 with you all.

To celebrate my blogoversary I want to host a giveaway for you all. I have one gently used copy of The Secret History of the Pink Carnation by Lauren Willig. To enter leave a comment below indicating you are entering with your email address. The only catch to this one is that you be a follower - new or old! Giveaway ends May 31, 2010.

Let's Celebrate!
