True, I don't always get those review books I'm dying to read right away, but over the past few years, I've been more mellow about it. Because I've officially gotten wayyyyy more books to read in my TBR pile than I ever intended! I've tried to cut back on my buying books here and there, but it doesn't go over so well. I mean, get me to a signing or even RT Conventions and I'll take whatever free books I can get and then buy about a half dozen or so! (Usually I've bought all the authors' I've already read books prior to going, so I pick up a lot of impulse reads! Or early releases!)
- Over the seven years of blogging (and as of January 23 as I write this post) I have 1778 GFC followers alone! Plus I don't know how many in Linky, Bloglovin, Email and RSS Feed Subscribers as well! Then there's Twitter and Instagram as well!
- Not to mention creating Twitter and Instagram accounts as well!
- I have roughly 3906 posts, give or take a few as a few at this time are scheduled and I'm sure I'll have a few book reviews thrown in before this post goes live!
- I average maybe 500 pageviews a day
And it's all just soooo awesome! When I first started blogging I knew nothing! I created the blog on a whim because I wanted an extra entry into a contest I was entering and thought, well, I don't do Facebook, but let's trying this "blog" thing!
And then just wow! I've learned soooooo much with blogging over the years and still learn a thing or two! I still have no idea about the technical side of things! My blog was always a premade template and then a year or two ago I won a redesign from another blogger who does website designs as well, so I've stuck with this design the last few years because I love it!
I've met quite a few bloggers in real life as well over the years and have become thrilled with these meetings! And this year I plan to attend BEA for the first time and am SO excited for this as well! 2016 will be my year of fun! I know it, because also our Florida trip has a DATE!!! We're going baby!!!
And now what you're all waiting for...the contest!! And yes, it is INTERNATIONAL!!! Wherever The Book Depository ships is in!
TWO winners will get their choice of $20 (US) in books!! US winners have the option to receive a $20 Amazon gift card, should they rather have that for pre-ordering or other such things!
Just fill out the Rafflecopter and you'll be in!
