Celebrating my Three Year Blog Birthday!


Yup, that's right! It was three years ago today that my first blog post went live and I haven't looked back since.  What a fun and eventful three years it has been too.  When I started, I never dreamed that I would meet so many great bloggers.  I certainly didn't know that authors would want me to read and review their books...and I have met and worked with so many great authors, publishers, and publicists. And who would have thought that I would host four reading challenges (five, if you include my yearly Christmas reading challenge) and four seasonal read-a-thons a year! And now I'm embarking on hosting a new event, my Sit Down and Write Write-a-Thon! Blogging sure does keep me on my toes, but you know what?  I wouldn't change anything about these last three years.  My horizons have expanded, my reading tastes have become more diverse and well-rounded, and I have learned so many new things too.  Most importantly, I have met some of the most wonderful people and I've made some lifelong friends.  So...I want to thank YOU most of all.  All of you that take the time to visit my blog and to those who participate in my myriad of events.  You are the main reason that I consider my blogging experience a success.  I look forward to many more years of blogging and friendship.

So lets raise our virtual glasses in a toast and share a big virtual hug! Cheers!

I apologize for word verification, but I turned it off and had close to 50 spam comments within 12 hours (nobody has time for that) so I had to turn it back on. Sorry!

  1. Congratulations, Michelle! Good job. Three years and counting - right?

    I admit I'm starting to feel a little draggy in my third year, but I think it's just the general summer heat that is wearing me down. But I'm still at it too. :)
