Blogoversary and Giveaway

Blogoversary Banner

Today is Book Date's first Blogoversary! A year ago today, I sat down and began a book blog.  The past year has been interesting, I started off not quite sure how it would go. It has been far better than I could have expected and I have been delighted by my first year.  Now today, I am looking forward to another year of blogging.

I thought I knew all there was to know about blogging, as I have a class blog and had a teacher blog. However book blogging has shown me I had new things to learn  about blogging, and I am still aware there are plenty more skills to master. I have enjoyed other book bloggers, and have learned of so many books that I wanted to read.  My TBR shelf grew, rather than shrank. 

To celebrate:


There are no hoops to jump! This is celebration time.  I am giving away a $15 Amazon voucher or $15 choice of book(s) at the Book Depository.  This will close on the 7th of January, NZ time. Open internationally.



Congratulations to Christy over at Christy's Book Addiction.  She is the winner of the blogoversary giveaway.

  7. Happy Bloggoversary!! Thanks so much for sharing your success with your followers. I know that blogging is hard work. Your blog looks great. I have much to learn. I've been blogging a year, too, and my blogs are incredibly primitive...I must get to work! Best wishes for a continued prosperous future of blogging.
