Hello and welcome back! As I promised on Monday, the blogoversary celebration continues with a new post today, in which I talk about some of my blogging, reading and social media related highlights of the past 12 months. I hope you’ll enjoy it and I hope you’ll stop by on Friday when I’ll be answering some of the questions you asked me last week. Also, don’t forget to enter my blogoversary giveaway for your chance to win a book of your choice.
There were several read-a-thons, challenges and other events that I signed up for and successfully (or not so successfully) completed but there was one that really stood out. I signed up for the very first WWReadathon, organised by Bex from Kindle Fever and April from My Shelf Confessions some time last year and it’s been my favourite bookish event ever since. I don’t know if it was my first read-a-thon or not (it probably was) but it was definitely the best. I made friends with people who I’ve been touch with ever since and who I love to bits. It’s definitely been one of the most special events I’ve taken part in and I don’t think I’ll ever forget that weekend. If you asked me what my favourite blogging related memory was, this would be it.
My proudest accomplishments
My proudest achievement would probably be… well, there’s two actually. When I first signed up and started my blog, I’d never, ever thought I’d be where I am today. Even while I was signing up and trying to come up with a name for my blog, I was thinking ‘I wonder how long it’ll last’. I was dreading the moment where I’d realise I don’t want to do this anymore but it never came. I went through a short reading and blogging slump earlier this year and life got in the way many times but my blog became a crucial part of my life and I’ve no intention of giving it up. I know it may not sound as a big thing but I really am proud of the fact that I managed to keep it up – and enjoy it! – on top of work and going to university and everything else. And the other thing would have to be hosting the Review Copy Cleanup along with one of my bookish best friends, Celine from Nyx Book Reviews. I loved working with Celine and meeting you guys, to see you all cheer each other on during these two events. And just like the WWReadathon, it will always hold a special place in my heart because it’s our own event and I’m proud of how it all turned out. We’ve received some amazing comments throughout the first two RCCleanups and it was so nice to see that people really are interested and so supportive.
