Happy Blogoversary To Me!

Hip Hip Hooray! *throws confetti*
Today marks my first official blogoversary! It was on this day, exactly one year ago, that I published my first ever post. I actually made my blog in May 2011, but it took me awhile to get my act together, but boy am I glad that I finally did!

When I first decided to start my blog way back then (it seems more than a year ago!) I couldn’t have imagined all this. I thought blogging would be a challenge (it definitely is, but the best kind), and would allow me to share my thoughts and opinions with others, but blogging gave me that and so much more. The experiences I’ve had, the authors I’ve chatted with on twitter and gotten to work with, the beautiful comments that can brighten my day and put a smile on your face, connecting with other readers and bloggers who love to read just as much as I do and most of all, the friendships I’ve made. I can’t imagine my life before I started blogging. It just seems so RIGHT. I truly don’t know what I used to do before I met you all. Thanks for making me feel like I belong, this community sure is amazing!

Since Author Appreciation August starts very soon (only a couple of days to go!) and I’ll be spending money to help host that, I’ve decided to give away something small and bookish from etsy but I promise it will be awesome. To enter all you have to do is leave a meaningful comment on this post and since this is all about saying thanks for your support and comments, you must be a follower. I will pick a winner via random.org at the end of the month!

Thanks for following, commenting and overall, being so awesome. I really appreciate it! Here, have some virtual cake! ;D
YUM. Red velvet, pink, sprinkle cake or super duper chocolate cupcakes - take your pick!

  2. Aww, a very happy blogaversary to you, Rebecca :D *noms virtual cake*
    May there be many more! Best of luck with the event in August too :)

  3. BECCA!!! EEEEE. HAPPY BLOGOVERSARY! *squishes in hug*

    Wow, seriously, how fast does a year fly by?? It's strange, though. It feels like so many of us have been blogging longer than we have, yet at times... not AS long as we have? It feels long, yet short! And that makes no sense. But anyway, I am SO happy you decided to start blogging! What would this community, especially us Aussie bloggers, be without you? <3 I love what blogging gives back to each of us, it really is more than just a hobby. You better plan on sticking around for many more years yet.

    I hope your next year will be even MORE incredible than the last!

    Also: CAKE. Um, best blogoversary gift ever? I THINK SO *stuffs in mouth*



    *tackles and hugs*

    I second exactly what Brodie said! It's people like you who make being a part of the blogging community so fun!

    We're yet to meet up for lunch or something one day and I can't wait for that day to come :)

    Much love gorgeous! <3

  6. WOW Congratulations on a year!!

    That's awesome. I like how you mention that it took you a while to get your act together, because I still feel like I'm getting my act together too. I look back at some of my earlier stuff and cringe with embarrassment, personally. Your blog is so lovely and I'm so thrilled that I found it thru my own Contemporary Month.


  7. Aw, congratulations! I hope I have accomplished all that you have once I hit my year mark. You have a wonderful blog. Keep up the good work! And celebrate your butt off! Thanks for the virtual cake, it looks delicious! :D
