I can hardly believe that a year ago today I posted my first ever blog post. Ideally I would have loved to have run some sort of giveaway to celebrate but as usual I have left it a bit late in getting anything organised as I have been busy with blog tours and reviews, not that, that should be any excuse! I promise to organise something soon.
I also wanted to take this opportunity to thank everyone of you that follow my blog or come and visit from time to time. From the authors and publishers that have approached me to read books, to my fellow bloggers and for everyone that takes the time to visit my blog and read my posts, a very heartfelt thank you to you all.
When I first started my blogging journey I was so ready to throw the towel in so many times, mainly due to being rubbish with technology and struggling trying to get my blog just right. But for once I was really determined and I am so glad I overcame the many hurdles I encountered.
I set bytheletterbookreviews up solely as a hobby and to share my love of books. Blogging has totally changed my life. I have discovered authors and publishers I had never heard of before. It has introduced me to the wonderful blogging community of which I have made some wonderful friends and even though it can be a lot of hard work, I absolutely love it.
When I posted my first ever post, I thought the only people that would ever look at my blog would be friends and family who probably only felt obliged due to our relationship. Never in my wildest dreams would I have expected in my first year to have had just short of 20,000 views. The help and support I have had over the last year has just been amazing and I really can’t thank you all enough!
