Holy moly! It’s my one year blogiversary! I know I haven’t been very active lately, but I was focusing on my internship and graduating. My exam deadlines are next week, but I scheduled some blogging time so could put up this post. A lot of amazing things have happend in the past year, so I’ll be sharing some of my favourite blog posts as well as looking forward to things to come. Finally, I’m hosting a giveaway to celebrate my one year anniversary! It’s super fun, so don’t forget to check it out.
One Year of Blogging
I’ve been blogging for as long as I can remember, but I only started Books & Babbles a year ago. I started working on it sometime mid April and went live on May 1st (don’t let some of the post dates fool you, ha!) I’ve never been so incredibly happy blogging about anything. Even in the past nine-ish months when I was barely writing anything, I was still thinking of it constantly and trying to fit it into my super busy schedule. It didn’t work out most of the time, but I’m more determined than ever to make it work. My head is full with fun post and video ideas and I cannot wait to share them all with you!
When I hit publish on this post, I’ll have published 106 posts. I think that’s the most I’ve ever published on any blog! As you might know, the idea for Books & Babbles took shape when book reviews and other bookish posts were taking over my “old” blog. The review that started it all was the one for Angelfall by Susan Ee. I originally published this one in January of 2016. Another post I really love is my 30 Bookish Facts posts. I sorta stole this from one of my favourite bloggers Cait (paperfury.com). I love rereading this post over and over again because it’s exactly how I want my entire blog to be. Two more posts want to mention are my photography posts. I did one on how I take my photos and one on styling. I love these posts because I can combine my love for books with my love for photography.
To celebrate my one year blogiversary on Books & Babbles, I’m hosting my very first giveaway! You can win a book from Book Depository worth €/$/£ 15! The giveaway is international as long as Book Depository ships to you and runs till May 7th 12.59PM. I’ll be going through the comments on May 8th and announcing te winner the same day! Entering is super easy, just check the Rafflecopter form down below!
Best of luck to all who enter! I’m BEYOND excited to announce a winner next week! In the meantime, I hope to publish some new posts! I’ll still be super busy making my deadlines, but I’ll try my best. I have so many fun ideas plus a VERY exciting review to come!
