One Year Blogiversary

Tuesday, January 25, 2011


Yes, the photo is my sorry attempt at creating a number 1 out of books. It's my one year blogiversary today! I just want to tell you all how grateful I am for this wonderful community of readers. 

It's been so rewarding to discuss books and get recommendations from all of you. I can't believe it's only been one year.

Thank you guys for commenting and following and making blogging so much fun.

Photo by moi.

Thanks guys! You all are awesome.

Teacher/Learner - The bottom is a fake book, that I store things in on my desk at home. The main stack is my collection of Penguin cloth-bound classics, then The Moonstone, The Invisible Man, Good Omens and on the top is Les Mis.

Way to go! I had no idea you were so young! It goes by fast doesn't it? And I have always maintained that one year in blogland is like five normal years. You should be very proud of yourself!

I think your one is great! Very creative! Happy Blogiversary ... and here's to many more to come!

Alexandra said...

Hurrah! Lots of blogs started in January, I see (New YEar resolution?).

All the best for the blogging year ahead!

Happy First Anniversary! I thought you had been around the blogsphere for much longer, probably because of your separate pages for Books read in earlier years :)

Avid Reader said...

Sandy - I agree, it's like dog years ir something.

Alexandra - I actually started another blog with a friend in Dec. '09 (A Tale of Two Bloggers). Then after about a month I realized that all I really wanted to blog about was books, so I started this.

LindyLouMac - It feels longer than a year. I've been on Library Thing since 2006, so I had all of my books rated a catelogued already.

Is it true you've only been around for one year? Wow! Congratulations on the anniversary (and I think the 1 is pretty impressive in thought and execution!)
