First Blogiversary

It occurred to me the other day that it's been a year since I started this blog. A year. It hardly feels like it's been that long.

I'm still learning a lot about book blogging. In some ways, I feel just as naive and ignorant as when I first started on October 26, 2012. My blog is still just beginning.

But in other ways, I feel that if nothing else, the past year has been about integrating myself into this fascinating community of book lovers who take time out of their busy lives to share the book love online with strangers across the globe. It took me a while to get the hang of things and find blogs I wanted to read, and to feel like anyone at all was reading mine. But now I feel proud to say that I am a real, live book blogger. It may not always be easy to fit another hobby into my school schedule, but I'm passionate about book blogging. I think I have even more ideas and excitement for blogging than I had a year ago.

Many thanks to those who have kept coming to my book blog over the past year. It's wonderful to have my few wonderful friends who keep faithfully reading, and who write wonderful blogs themselves! I'm also so grateful to those who have just come once or twice. I love writing this blog and I hope some of you enjoy reading it, too.

I know this post is a little mushy and cliche, but I couldn't let my one-year anniversary go by without mentioning it! Hope you're all enjoying my little corner of the blogosphere, and I hope to be blogging for many more years to come!


  1. Congrats! I've also had the first anniversary recently, and I know how it feels: you just can't believe it's that long! :)
    I love reading your blog and I wish you more years like this, blogging-wise :)

  2. Happy birthday, blog! I hope you will continue for a long time--it's blogs like yours that I love to read!

  3. happy blogiversary, and to many more!

  4. Happy blogoversary! I kind of forgot you hadn't been around for forever. Wow.

    Can't wait to hear what you think of "Breakfast at Tiffany's."

  5. Thank you, everyone! And Hamlette--I'm getting horribly behind, but I'm working on a post for Breakfast at Tiffany's. I actually finished it on time for the spin--I've just been taking a long time to write about it!
