Tales Post – One Year Bloggerversary!


blan

Today the 16th November 2015, marks the day of my first bloggerversary!

All giveaways currently live are listed below 🙂

It’s been one whole year since I posted my first post on Tales Of Yesterday and jumped into the book blogging community!

I was welcomed with open arms by the community. By other bloggers, authors, publishers and more and it was so wonderful and kind.

Hand on heart it is the best decision I have ever made.  Combining my love of books with like minded people that I can chat to about books or gain recommendations or just have a general chat is just amazing and I can honestly say that I have made some truly good friends along the way!

My blog has grown so much over the past year in it’s look and it’s content.  Initially starting off with reviews it now contains posts and Q&A’s with authors, bloggers and publishers as well as fun quizzes or random bookish and sometimes not so bookish posts.

I took over the #PointHorrorBookClub from author James Dawson, participated in many blog tours, set myself bookish challenges, became a moderator of the wonderful Bookish Peeps, became a reviewer for Love Reading and most shockingly of all won Champion Newcomer at the UKYABA Awards in March 15 which then gave me the amazing opportunity to run a book blogging workshop with other bloggers at YALC.

AT YALC!  I still can’t quite believe it!

I was also asked by Waterstones Birmingham to be on a panel for their Book Blogger Bonanza back in September!  Again something that I still can’t quite believe.

My blog has helped me to explore my passion for reading more and especially delve more into the wonderful world of YA (especially UKYA) and MG which I love with all of my heart.

Don’t get me wrong.  Book blogging is hard work.  Working full time, having a ten year old, finding time to read and blog can be a juggling act.  Many a late night has been spent typing up posts.  Many a TV show I really wanted to watch sacrificed as I just could not put my book down.  Many a neglected husband who puts up with me typing away at a computer whilst he is tucked up in bed asleep.  But I love it.  I find it fun and enjoyable.  My escapism.  My hobby.  My passion.

This post marks my 170th post on Tales.  Wow!  170 posts!  I never thought that that would be possible on any level or scale.

I recently hit 1500 followers on twitter which brought tears to my eyes….mainly because I feel sorry for you all with my random rambling tweets, but also because you all are amazing and put up with me being on twitter a little to much than I should!

I’ve recently started using Instagram a bit more and have been having fun taking photos of books….so many books.

Any way enough of me going on!

A huge thank you to everyone who has supported me over the past year!  Thank you for being on this journey with me and sailing along with me, supporting me. You are all truly amazing….so much so I am failing to put anything into words the one thing I really do need to say….

THANK YOU *hugs everybody* x
