It’s a little surreal to think that ONE YEAR ago today my first review went live on Good Books and Good Wine. In many ways, it feels almost as if it were yesterday. I can still remember the conversation April and I had where we discussed the possibility of me becoming her co-blogger, and helping her out. I remember how nervous I was about people not accepting me, or not liking the way I wrote reviews, or not being able to understand me. I guess I simply didn’t want to overstep my bounds but, I also remember how excited I was to join. I had this feeling that I was about to go on an incredible journey, and boy was I right!
This past year has been so much fun. I have been able to meet so many awesome people, read so many excellent reviews, and add way too many books to my to-be-read list. I’ve also been able to create a whole new world for myself, and have so much fun while doing it. In many ways, I feel as if this past year as a book blogger has helped me grow as a person, and I feel that I will forever be indebted to April for inviting me to join her, and for allowing me to take part in a world that really did seem far out of my reach before.
I really can’t imagine not being a part of this community now. Like I said, I have met so many awesome people, and you all have been so welcoming, and understanding. Getting to know you, read your comments on my reviews, hear your responses to what I’m reading, or what I’m doing has been wonderful. I love gushing about books with all you! I truly can’t thank you enough for all your kindness, and support. THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
And here’s to another year of good books, blogging, friends, and glasses of wine!
