Hi everyone! Welcome to my 4 years of blogging blogiversary – this is the actual day, June 9th, when I officially became a blogger.
I never dreamed when I started writing reviews on line in 2009 that 4 years later I would still be doing it. Blogging has really changed my life in positive ways that I would never have expected :
- Writing reviews for a local magazine
- being on a Twin Cities Panel
- Going to the Book Expo for the past 4 years
- Becoming President of The Friends Of The Library
- Being on the city board for the library
Now you might think that some of these things I would have done without the blog but I dot think that is true. Through this community of bloggers I have learned the value of reading and sharing what we read. I have also read post after post of libraries and book stores closing, so I have become an even stronger advocate for the written word. All that I owe to this little space on the internet that I call Book Journey.
For those of you who have come to my party the last few years, the basics are pretty much the same… to be entered for the great giveaways (pictured below), simply leave me a comment here telling me how you traveled to the party, and what virtual gift or food item you brought with you: For example, you may have rollerbladed to the party and brought with you foot long licorice vines … (really be as crazy as you want… I love the fun imaginative comments!) For a little bonus if you would like to share how long we have known each other (blog or otherwise) and if you are brand new to the house of Book Journey – feel free to share that too! I love new friends!
My party will go for 24 hours so this post will go up at 12:01 am on June 9 (central time) and stay up until midnight. Every comment will be entered into the random drawings and winners (using random.org)will be announced here on Monday morning on Its Monday What Are You Reading Post.
Your comment will go into a drawing (using random.org) for one of the following packages:
♥Thank you readers, you make this blog a whole lot of fun! I am so excited to celebrate with you. I have cleaned the house and set out the “red solo cups” and have the punch on ice…. just waiting to see who will be knocking on my door…
wait! There’s a knock! Who could it be?
*opens door and looking surprised!*
