Feature: Happy One Year Blogaversary! – Kick-Off – Part 1 with Giveaways

Book Nerd was started with the mission to help other people decide if a book was for them. I remember getting a sense of satisfaction when someone thought my review was helpful on the Chapters/Indigo community portal. I helped someone, and that’s the main goal I sought to achieve.

I can’t believe Book Nerd has is one year old. It feels like I’ve only been blogging for six months, that’s how fast it went by. I am honoured to be able to provide bookish excitement to not just Canadians but to other book nerds around the world. I’ve talked to almost anyone and everyone on Twitter, and YouTube, and in doing so have found so many amazing people who love books just as I do. Words can’t express how much gratitude I feel whenever I read a tweet from someone saying how much they like my blog, or even better telling me that in person

By providing The Newbie’s Guide to Book Blogging, I’m also encouraging other book nerds to come in and join the fun, by providing tutorials on web design I’m helping people learn programming languages they can use for their blog, by reading all these books for free, I’m helping the book industry promote all the wonderful stories their authors have written. It’s an endless cycle filled with passion about the one thing we have in common..books.

This week is my blogaversary series, and each day, I have scheduled a post that will go live. I am taking this week off and will be going on a week-long hiatus to catch up on what I love best..reading. You’ll still see me tweeting sporadically, but not in excessive amounts. Am trying to stay from the computer for a bit.

BUT, I won’t leave you hanging, because each day, I have a post that will say “THANK-YOU” to all the wonderful people that has made Book Nerd the blog it is.

Make sure to check out the rest of the posts in this series!

    Happy Blogoversary!! It sure seems like you’re “older” than one year! I’ve greatly enjoyed following your site 🙂 Love your graphic design abilities / the look of your blog. If I won book of choice from TBD, I’d love to have a paperback of CINDER and the new hardback of SCARLET 🙂 (I think that’s less than $20 from there) If pre-orders are a no-go…I think I’d choose The Raven Boys instead!
