Happy One Year Blogoversary Crazy Four Books!




One year ago today I officially started on the adventure that is blogging! I've had a few moments where I questioned whether I should continue. Mostly at the beginning when I had virtually no views, followers, or comments. Some days not much has changed in the comment department. At least I know that I'm not alone. Unfortunately, many bloggers complain about the same thing.

In the new year, I am going to follow the example of some of the other blogs that I follow and implement a comment rewards program. I'm still working out the kinks but know that it is coming soon! :D

Today I just want to say Thank you for being part of my World of Books. I love reading and it makes it that much better to have people to share with after I've read something awful or awesome. Or when I am anticipating something that hasn't come out yet, it is wonderful to be able to talk about it with others and know that they too are waiting.

You guys are awesome and I appreciate you spending time with me.  Yes, even those of you that don't comment. lol! I am guilty of that too. I follow so many other blogs that often I don't take the time to comment.

Todays prize is a $20 Amazon giftcard or for those of you who can't use Amazon, $20 worth of books from The Book Depository. In other words, if you win and you choose books from TBD, it can be one or multiple books up to $20.

I just want to say Thank You for celebrating my One year Blogoversary with me today.

    I am a new blogger too, and just like you I always question whether or not I should continue; but then I realise that I blog for myself and for my passion, now matter how positive my feedback is! Nevertheless having comments and active followers is a joy that only bloggers can understand!

    I wish you an incredible weekend!
