Has it really been a year already? To be fair, I should have made this post yesterday, but I didn’t even think about it. It hit me today that it has been a full year since I first made a post on WHR. My very first review. Here we are a year later, with almost 400 posts made.
I’m curious where this next year will go, and what I’ll come up with. I’d, in fact, planned a giveaway for this whole thing, however… I ran off and left a whole set of Calendar Girl books (Yup, all four volumes that I’d planned to giveaway.) six hours from myself. Anyone else want to facepalm here. Excuse me while I go put on my dunce cap at the forgetfulness. I’ll be in the corner. 😛 At some point, I’ll still do that giveaway. I just have to get the books to do it.
When I started this whole “blog thing”, I had no idea I’d become addicted to it. That I’d love reviewing and I’d love finding things to post and jabber about. I didn’t know it would become what is has. WHR has become an outlet, more so than I even considered it would, to talk about things I love. Namely, books. 😀 To be fair, it was one of those moments of, I’ll try this. It was a whim. It had also been my birthday two days before, and I was all, “Here, have a blog! Try something new!”. Who does that? 😛
I kept it quiet. I didn’t tell people what I was doing. Most of my extended family still have no clue about it. I refused to make a Facebook page for it until about six months in. It still doesn’t even have it’s own personal email. (I plan to change that soon!) I’m pretty sure maybe five people that were close to me, were the only ones who knew I’d even started a blog. So typically, when you start something, who are the first people you reach out to? Your family, right? Yup. I didn’t. Which is why I’m still surprised people even read these reviews.
Just in the last year alone, I’ve met so many amazing bloggers, authors, readers and other reviewers that I’m generally in awe of it all. The blogging community is downright awesome! The people I’ve met have made this worth it! 😀 Thanks to everyone who have been following! ❤ ❤
Super duper special thanks to J.J. and Gary, for coming on this crazy ride with me. Also for loving books as much as I do. (They don’t think I’m insane when I go on about books! “We’re all mad here!”.)
Anyway, happy birthday little blog!
