Happy New Year | Happy Blogversary to Me! + Giveaway

Posted January 1, 2017 by Tina in As Told by Tina, Giveaway / 25 Comments

Today marks my second blogversary! I’ve been blogging for six years on and off but As Told By Tina has been my longest running blog.

When I first thought about book blogging I never expected to be here two years later. It has been such an amazing journey these past two years and I cannot wait to see what 2017 has in store for me.

Truth is I had no idea what to expect when I embarked on this journey. I tried reading the same books that everyone was hyping, I tried to be like everyone else but now two years down the road I realized that it is much easier to blog about whatever I want, read whatever I want and do whatever I want.

2017 will be about changes. I’ll definitely be blogging about books but you’ll see snippets of mommy life, my bullet journal and maybe even my writing. I want my blog to be more about me and my life and not a carbon copy of everyone else’s blog.

I wouldn’t have been able to make it two years without some amazing people. (If you’re not listed, please don’t take offense I forget how to spell my name most days).

I would like to thank my Rainbow Book Club. We’ve been a book club for the past two years and even though we absolutely suck at book clubbing our friendship is extremely tight. Thank you so much for being there for me throughout the past two years.

Erin from The Hardcover Lover. We’ve gotten close these past couple months and I am extremely grateful for our friendship.

RaeAnne from Lavender Prose, thank you so much for inviting me to be apart of the Indie Reading Challenge we have in the works. It’s been amazing working with you.

Grace from Rebel Mommy Book Blog and Cee Ar from Diary of A Reading Addict I can almost always count on you two to comment on my blog and making me feel like I’m not just talking to myself. HAHA.

Naz from Diverse Reads I honestly wasn’t aware of how I wasn’t reading diversely and I’m grateful you’ve opened the door to discovering more diverse reads.

Joey, Tika, Blessie. I can always count on you three to make me laugh.

Jenny From Reads By Rose, you were one of the first friends I made in this community and I am so happy about that. You’ve been an amazing friend these past two years.

Stephanie from Reading With Cupcakes you’ve definitely inspired me to be more creative and try new things.

Erika from Novel Ink, my relaunch would not have been successful without your help. You are seriously amazing.

Nicole Banks, I can’t even begin to tell you how much it means to me that you value my opinion when it comes to your work. Seriously, it means so much to me. (P.S. don’t do anything to Chase or Angel I probably won’t forgive you. )

To my followers both new and old thank you so much for sticking by me these past two years. It means the world to me.

To the authors I’ve worked with or will be working with in 2017 thank you so much for wanting to work with me and for wanting me to review your works. It is truly an honor to work with you.

Thank you so much for sticking by me these past two years. I hope you have a wonderful 2017.
