The header is true! My blog is a year old today! Aw, they grow up so fast. And I literally just got back from RT Booklovers Convention last night so I’m still recovering. However, I wanted to do something special to commemorate this day and to celebrate!
First and foremost, I have to give a huge shoutout to my blogger friends, Sara (What A Nerd Girl Says) and Sylvia (Fangirlfeeels) because without their support and advice, I would have a much harder time figuring out all this blogger business. You guys are the literal best.
With one year of blogging under my belt, I’m planning to immerse myself even more into my blog and making sure it gets the love and care I want to devote. After attending the RT Booklovers Convention, I’m reminded just how much bloggers (and readers alike) impact authors and their careers. I mean, let’s face it, authors don’t have a job without us. But there’s a special bond that authors share with all of us too. Being a blogger feels like my way of giving back to them (and also the readers). So, thank you to those who have followed me this far, to new ones following me now, and to future ones who will stumble blindly onto my blog and deem me worthy of a follow. You guys are rock stars.
Now, as I said before, I just came back from Dallas, Texas where RT Booklovers Convention was happening this year and, my god, it was a fantastic event. I only went one day (Teen Day), but I had so much fun. The signing room was filled with hundreds of amazing authors who were all ready to have a chat and sign some books. Everyone there was happy to be there celebrating books. It was an amazing atmosphere to be in. You can check out some of the photos I posted of the event and my travels on my Instagram using the hashtag #EpicFangirlRoadTrip!
While at the Teen Day Party I was able to score some extra swag. I had contemplated whether or not I should have a giveaway for the extra swag, and then when I was notified that today is my blog’s birthday! So, now I HAD to do this giveaway.
This is my thanks to everyone who has followed so far. Up for grabs is two books (one hardcover if that entices you), a signed poster, signed bookmarks, wristbands, pins, buttons, and other cool stuff.
