Blog Party

GUYS.

I reached (a very small, unsubstantial amount to most of you who have far more than this) 100 followers today and I’m excited about itttttt.

So, if you don’t know… I created this back in January as a place to kind of archive my reviews that I wrote on GoodReads. And just a couple short weeks later, I lost a family member. This kind of put me in a bad place for a little while, and I tried to recuperate and keep working on reviews, but the next month, I had to take a trip to the hospital for a few days and I once again got derailed.

The truth is, I wasn’t really interested anymore. I was still reading, because that’s my #1 thing to do when I’m feeling any and all emotions, but I didn’t feel like reviewing them anymore. With everything else going on in my life, it felt very small. So I took my time to get back to feeling a little better, and came back to this when I felt like I was ready for it. I came back to try my hand at it again in May, having not posted since the very beginning of February. When I came back I had 12 followers! Now I have 100. And I know it’s small to those of you have a larger following, but it’s exciting for me, who was unsure if I even wanted to do this for months.

SO, in celebration of this little achievement, I’d like to have a little blog party!!!

Share your links (wordpress, twitter, instagram, pinterest, etc), and tell us about what you post!

You don’tย have to follow other’s who are commenting, but make some friends! Meet some new blogs ๐Ÿ™‚ Also, please make sure you are following me to participate โ™ฅ i’d love you seriously forever.

 

HAPPY FOLLOWING!

  1. Congrats, Brittany! I love the idea of a blog party to celebrate this milestone! ๐Ÿ™‚

    My blog is http://www.lifeofhayley.com and I blog about all things lifestyle! I love reading book reviews and have been writing a few of my own. I am a newlywed and new dog mama who enjoys traveling, writing, and spending time with my family. โค

    So excited for you and can't wait to meet some new bloggers!

  2. Congrats! Itโ€™s such a great milestoneโ€”that I too am hoping to hit soon. I love that youโ€™ve found your passion again! I totally get that side of it. Life happenings are so great at getting in the way. I canโ€™t wait to see what you review next.
    Also, thanks for the opportunity to share my own site. https://365daysofnewwithafewtriedandtrue.wordpress.com
    I write about a little of everything and certainly anything new Iโ€™ve tried be it fashion, food, family fun. Hope youโ€™re hitting 200 soon enough so we can all celebrate again.

  4. Congratulations! Followers of any quantity is a great thing. I’ve only been blogging for about 7 months and am still under the 100 followers threshold – so to me 100 followers is an awesome milestone! (Though admittedly, I’m still surprised by the number of followers I do have. I kinda started my blog for much of the same reason you did – a place to put my reviews of books.) I’ve really enjoyed the book-blogging community and I hope you have as well. I completely understand the life sh*t getting in the way. I’m going through a rough season myself. It’s totally okay. I look forward to seeing more of your posts.

    Oh, now to participate in the blog party: https://wanderinglectiophile.wordpress.com – I post book reviews and bookish things a the moment but want to get into posts about traveling and adventures at some point. And thanks for hosting the blog party! What a fun idea…I may be borrowing it when, or if, I reach a similar milestone for my own blog.

    1. Thank you! It’s always surprising to me too how supportive other bloggers are on WordPress! I never would’ve expected to reach any substantial amount of followers, but like you said, any is really great! I hope you get through your rough patch! Life can be so tedious sometimes.
      I look forward to reading about your adventures! I LOVE book reviews but of course it’s always nice to mix things up. As far as borrowing the post idea, go right ahead! There are lots of blog parties bloggers use to celebrate milestones, so feel free to start a blog party yourself! It’s fun to give your followers a chance to connect with each other!

      1. I never could have anticipated the amount of support other bloggers show each other. It’s incredible and inspiring! I’ve managed to slip right in to this community and feel so welcomed and appreciated.
        Thank you! I’ve got a little trepidation about posting travel/adventures for some reason, but I do travel a good bit and it’s a core facet to my being…so it would make sense to post about my passion for traveling. I’ve just been dragging my feet on it.

      2. It’s definitely normal to be a little hesitant! But I think posts like that would be awesome! Especially if you do a lot of traveling; there would be lots to write about and show.

    My blog is for a community of people who enjoy sharing and reading good stories with other people. I write a prompt (along with my own response to it) and then you can use the comments section to respond to the prompt and read the stories others have contributed.
    It’s new so I’m still trying to build the community. Come join me – it’s a lot of fun!
