2 Years of Blogging!

17 Apr

I posted my first review on this blog 2 years ago today!

I’ve had my ups and downs during this time, periods where I was posting very regularly, and others where I just barely kept it going.

Overall, I’ve posted 494 posts during this time!  I’ve reviewed about 265 books.

I’ve met many cool people, including other bloggers, authors, and publicists.  I’ve discovered amazing books I wouldn’t have known about otherwise.

I’ve worked on my writing & technical skills, I’m moved my blog to its own domain (if you haven’t updated your subscription in your feed reader, I’d appreciate your doing so– I’m now at

Now I need to figure out where I’m going next with my blog, and I really don’t know.  I’m feeling a little discouraged recently.  Any constructive advice cheerfully accepted!

And now, for the celebration

I’m following the tradition of offering a giveaway for my bloggiversary.

I’ll send a $25 Barnes & Noble e-card to the random winner.

Fill out the giveaway form to enter!

I’ll close the giveaway and pick a winner on May 2.

    Congrats on two years of blogging. I enjoy visiting and reading your reviews so I hope you’ll continue in a way that makes you happy. After all, it’s your blog so you can set the pace.
    I’ve felt a little overwhelmed lately so I’ve pulled back on accepting review books. I’m almost caught up and it makes me feel lighter, you know? It’s a good feeling. Life is going to get busy for me in the next six months – all good but busy so I may even pull back more and then pick up again in October.
    Here’s to a good third year – on your terms 🙂

    Congratulations! I think many of us go through this, in some way or another. That’s all the constructive advice I have – just to know that this seems to be kind of common with us bloggers, and you’ll get through it and find what works best for you.

    I hope you’ll continue blogging in some way, shape or form because of our shared taste in books and because yours is one of my favorite blogs.

    Congrats! What’s the traditional gift for 2-year anniversaries? Cotton? I say get yourself a nice hammock so you can relax (and do more reading of course)! 🙂 I can only imagine what it’s like maintaining a book review blog for two years. It’s a labor of love…but please know that we authors appreciate all you do!
