One year ago today, I took the leap and joined the book blogging world. After avidly reading book blog after awesome book blog, I said to myself, “I can do this too!”And thank goodness I did.
A year later, this little blog turns one year old! In these crazy 365 days, I’ve learned a lot and embarked on a journey I never thought possible. In the past year, I’ve:
-Been welcomed into a community of fellow readers and writers, a community of support and friendship; of e-mails, gchats and Twitter conversations; Of random meetings in San Diego.
-Learned about books I probably otherwise never would have heard of if it weren’t for the amazing recommendations of my book blogging friends.
-Read 103 books and wrote 77 book reviews.
–Helped a debut author, Kristin Walker, with PR for her novel A Match Made In High School.
-Attempted beginning writing my first novel and crashed and burned during NaNoWriMo. I regained my creativity and motivation back when I took my first creative writing class. I continued to struggle and still do to write and finish that first novel.
-Found several great publishing and writing blogs. My Google Reader and brain were filled with knowledge of the publishing industry and I feel better equipped to continue this journey.
–Met my favorite author, Jennifer Weiner.
