Today is the one year anniversary of this blog! Wow.... I can't believe it's been a year already. It really hasn't seemed like that long.
I really never even planned to start reviewing. You hear people talking about how they debated and debated about starting a book reviewing blog, but I started mine very spur of the moment. This day last year, my school had no school due to a Cold Day. So, while I was sitting at home, I stumbled upon two very amazing book blogs, The Story Siren and The Page Flipper.
Those two blogs were my inspiration to start a blog. After reading those two blogs, I decided to start a blog... and I did, just minutes after seeing those two blogs. I thank both Kristi and Chelsea because they were both so nice to me when I started. They helped me because I really had NO CLUE what the heck I was doing. I have to thank Kristi for putting up with all of my HTML questions, and Chelsea... just for being Chelsea and giving me lots of good advice.
I never imagined that this blog would get this big: being sent AMAZING books in the mail for review, ARCs (I didn't know what they existed until I started blogging), talking with wonderful authors, posting everyday. Who ever thought I'd be able to post everyday? I surely didn't when I started.
It still surprises me when I get e-mails from people asking for advice with their blogs if they've just started, because I don't consider this blog old at all. I feel like I just started, and I still have so much more to learn about all of this.
But I think this one year anniversary calls for something special. So, I'm going to do an about me post. Leave any questions you have for me in the comments section, and either at the end of this week, or early next will, you will have an All About Hope post. :)
Finally... THANK YOU to all the readers who made this blog what it is today. :D
