In our hectic day-to-day rushing, it’s easy to pass over all the little things. You know: the random compliment; an afternoon rain shower; that extra half hour to read. Beth at Before We Go tagged me in this wonderful challenge to celebrate the little things. Because really, the little things add up to the big things.
– Who was your very first follower? My first follower was my amazingly supportive husband. He’s my biggest supporter and the reason I gave blogging a go in the first place.
–What was the last milestone you reached? I passed my record of most blog likes in a day: now the number to beat is fifty. I didn’t really expect that many people to even read my blog, so that’s pretty stinking awesome.
– What was the very first post on your blog? Share it with us! If I’m not counting my “featured post” (which is this one) that is always at the top of my blog, that means my first post was my rave of the amazing The Seven and a Half Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton. If you haven’t read that book yet, you really should get on that. It’s incredible.
–Who was your most recent follower? My newest follower is Stephanie from bookfrolic. She reviews books and participates in the coolest blog tours. Go check her blog out!
–What was the last post you posted and who was the very first person who took the time to click the ‘like’ button? My most recent post is Iliad: The Reboot, which was an excellent book. I think the first person to hit the ‘like’ button was Gabbi at Devouring Literature. That’s an awesome blog, and if you aren’t following it, I suggest that you do.
–How many months have you been blogging for? My one year blogging anniversary (Blogiversary? Blog Birthday? Birthblogday? Bliorgthday?) is actually coming up on October twenty fifth. So, look for an incredibly gushy post from me on that day. You’ve been warned.
–Do you have any bloggers that you’re friends with? Give them a shout-out! Indeed I do! I’m so fortunate to have several awesome blogging buddies to talk about books, weird blogging acronyms, and just life in general with. Beth at Before We Go is my BBFF (Bookish Best Friend Forever). That’s a thing, right? If not, let’s just all pretend I’m young and hip, and using the most up-to-date lingo. We have a blast talking about all things bookish (and not). She’s stinking amazing. Irresponsible Reader has gone out of his way to tell me about cool book tours and knows all the best mysteries and detective thrillers. Both Jason from Off the TBR and Paul from Paul’s Picks are nice, supportive people. Lisa from Way Too Fantasy is another blogger who adds smiles and good opinions. I could keep going, but I’ll limit myself to these right now.
–Who created the last meme or tag you participated in? Not counting this one, that I’ve credited above, the last tag I participated in was the Coffee Book Tag originally done by Stephen Writes. He has the best book tags! Give his blog a follow.
-Give thanks to all your followers! Book blogging has become my relaxation thing. Talking books, getting new suggestions, and hearing new opinions from all of you is so wonderful. My book obsession has somehow led to some amazing friendships and I’m so appreciative of that.
