Today is my 1 Year Blogoversary! I honestly didn’t think I would be able to keep this up for a month let alone a whole year. Truth is, I love blogging. I love interacting with others within the blogging community and I really enjoy sharing my thoughts on my favourite books and bookish-related topics and the discussion that it generates.
I have had a really shitty year (sorry for the bad language but it is the only word that really fits the situation) and blogging has been a bit of a lifesaver – it has really kept me going and allowed me to focus on something else rather than the honestly awful situation I was going through. I want to take a moment to thank everyone who has stopped by my blog. It has really meant a lot to me.
I wasn’t sure what I was going to do to mark the occasion. I really would have loved to have had a giveaway but I live in the UK and it is expensive to post overseas (and I wouldn’t have wanted to limit a giveaway to only UK bloggers since so many of the lovely people I have met live all over the world). My finances are not in the greatest shape at the moment either unfortunately. 🙁
One thing that having my own blog has really encouraged me to do is get my overstuffed bookshelves in order. I have just recently undertaken the frankly daunting task of getting my shelves sorted out properly. It is going to take a while but I have at least made a start!
Here are some pictures of some of my bookshelves, pre and post sorting!
