Upcoming 3rd Blogoversary!

In one week (November 29th) my blog will celebrate 3 years!

How cool is that?

This past year there have been lots of changes to my blog. I completed renamed it, moved it to self hosting, and redesigned it to what it is right now, which to me is perfect. The only update to the layout I plan to do is to add a small baby to the family picture once our second child arrives! Our due date is May 2 and we couldn’t be any happier.

There have been many changes in my personal life as well. And as most other bloggers know sometimes life can get in the way of our reading and blogging habits. I’ve gone from unemployed to working part-time to now working full-time. This year our daughter Madison is in first grade and in school all day long. And to put the icing on the cake we’re expecting baby # 2 next May!

The reason I began to blog initially was to basically begin an online diary; an outlet for me to just pour my heart out if and when I needed it. I did that for a few months before I converted it over to a book review blog exclusively. I still sprinkle in the personal updates because I want to share those happy, mad, or even sad times with others who can relate to me even if it’s just through the books we read.

I want to thank each and every one of my followers but I especially want to thank all of you that followed me over from my Blogger blog, Book Reviews by Jess. I still cross post to that blog because I have 490 some followers over there. I wish they’d all come over here but I can only do so much.

Lastly, to thank you all I want to do a giveaway a day this week! To make it even more fun I’m not telling you what book I’m giving away! Instead I’m going to post a small cutout of the cover and have you guess the title for one more extra entry if you answer correctly. I have quite a few books to give away so there may be more than one book per giveaway! 🙂 Also, many are ARCs so their covers may or may not match the published version. 😉

Giveaway will be posted later this evening.

2nd Blogoversary!

Blogiversary 2 candle cupcake info Yesterday was the date of my 2nd Blogoversary!

I previously posted that I wanted to do a celebration giveaway on behalf of my blogoversary, however, I’m afraid I will not be able to hold myself to that idea.

With the holidays coming up and the fact that I am still unable to find employment, I have no extra funds. My poor hubby would not be happy if I held another contest.

I’m so sorry to announce that. 😦 I hope you’ll forgive my teasing and I hope to make it up to you with upcoming reviews.

Thank you for being awesome followers and for commenting on my reviews and entering my previous contests.

Maybe I can make it up to you in the future!

I hope you all had great holiday weekends!
