Happy (Belated) 10th Blogoversary

Ten Years! Where On Earth Did They Go…? Hey everyone, I kinda did a disappearing act for a bit but I couldn’t let my ten year blogoversary pass by without marking the occasion (even though I’m off by nearly 4 weeks since it was on August 4th!) I wish I could say I’ve been absent because I’ve been so busy but the truth is that I just haven’t felt much […]

My Blog Turns 4 Today

Well, I was reminded today by the WordPress fairies that it is my blog’s anniversary. Brin’s Book Blog officially turns 4 today! I honestly cannot believe that I have been blogging for 4 years. Not that I am the most consistent blogger (I have had a few blogging breaks) but still, I think it is definitely something to celebrate. I’m going to keep this short, but I had to post […]
