14th Blogoversary & a Giveaway!


Can you believe I've been blogging for 14 years now?! OMG, where has the time gone? I feel old! Like seriously, having a big anniversary like this really makes you realize how long you've been doing something! Lol. For 14 years I've been gabbing about books I've read and loved and maybe didn't love. I've made so many blogging friends, watched so many other blogs come and go...and though I've been doing this for a exceedingly long time, I really don't see myself giving this up!

Blogging may be a dying breed, but I still blog hop every week. When I see a review pop up on a friend's blog of a book I was debating about or what to read and just haven't gotten to it yet, I always read the review to see what they thought of it! The thing about all these other social media platforms is that you don't get that same kind of information one needs when trying to decide if a book is for them. I am old school in this, because I like to read a review. I don't want to sit and listen to a video clip, I don't have that kind of time. I've got lots to do and books to read myself! Lol. So yeah, my blog will be around for many more years to come. Likely until the internet breaks or whatever. Then it will be more keeping a diary on my laptop pretending to blog!

Since I've been noticing a great decline in the blogging world, I've been debating about how to hold contests these days. My big Halloween giveaway had the lowest of contest entries I've seen in all my blogging years. It was a little disheartening to say the least, but here we are. I'm nearing another milestone next year, so I feel obligated to hold some sort of contest now and then! So hopefully this one goes well!



So I plan to give away a $25 bookstore gift card! The bookstore has to have the ability to send e-gift cards, basically doing it this way in case you want to get an indie bookstore gift card. I will open this to international followers, but it will end up being $25 (USD) of books from The Book Depository, pending that they ship to you. If they do, you're in! Simple enough? If you have questions, you can leave them in the comments below!

Entrants must be 13 years or older or have a parent's permission to enter.
