Seven Summers of Blogging

Posted June 6, 2018 | 19 Comments

Hooray! Summertime is here! This is my favorite time of year – warm weather and long days!

It also means I started this blog seven years ago! Yup, it’s my blogoversary. Sure my posts are sporadic now and I abandon it for months at a time, but it’s still here! Counts for something, right? It blows my mind that I used to post 6-7 days a week when I first started out and read 125+ books a year. I honestly don’t know how I did it. Especially since I originally didn’t even intend for this to be a blog.

But, the best part is the people! I’ve met some pretty cool ones along the way who put up with my nonsense for some reason. You all deserve a brownie. 😀 And I tend to not get involved in the drama and different controversies that occur, but I admit, they’ve been entertaining to watch at times. Kristin recently reminded me of some of them with this 2012 post. Who remembers the whole Stop the Goodreads Bullies fiasco? That shit was wild! 😀 And now we have Cockygate and the book stuffing shenanigans. It never ends.

Anyway, I just wanted to post something to congratulate myself on a job well done.

Ha ha. Seriously, though, thanks for being such a great community!

I have plenty of stuff to post, so hopefully, I’ll get my ass in gear and do it. In the meantime, you can catch me on twitter and mostly on this facebook.

Oh! I almost forgot … here’s a little giveaway. 😉

  1. Happy Blogoversary and congrats on 7 years! That’s awesome. I’m glad that you’re still here, even if you do disappear on us every now and then. 😉 There always seems to be some sort of blog drama, but I try and stay out of it. Makes things easier. haha

  2. Happy Blogoversary, Christy! You are one of my favorite finds in the last year or so. I’m so glad that you still blog. Holy cow, I remember the whole Stop the Goodreads Bullies shenanigans and I was just as outraged over that as I am over the whole cockygate shitfest. I am glad to see how the community has come together to fight the bad guys. That’s so awesome!

    Keep up the good work, Christy and I’ll be around to read your stuff! 🙂

  3. Girlfriend, glad you are still around. I would miss you if you went away. That shit from 2012 was nuts. It was funny to reread some of it but also so sad that so much ugliness went on. I pulled away from social media after all that and still to this day don’t enage on Goodreads or Twitter. Life is too short for that drama. The sock puppets one was my favorite.

  4. Happy belated blog anniversary, Christy! You have definitely earned veteran status. 🙂 I am so glad to know you through your blog. Oh yes, so many controversies and drama . . . I try to stay out of it too for the most part, but it sure is fun to follow, isn’t it? Haha Here’s to many more years of blogging!
