It is hard to believe that I have been blogging for two years now. Page Turners has a changed a lot over time, and I am not just talking about the design.
The quality of my reviews have without a doubt improved for the better.
The content of my blog has changed over time as well. When I first began bloging in earnest I was very keen to build a following. This meant that a lot of my time was spent posting as part of memes, starting up my own memes and participating in challenges. As time has gone by and my community has slowly built up around me, I prioritised book reviews and discussions more and more. Now I no longer participate in any challenges or memes - it's just about the books I read and some areas of literary interest I post about.
What this year has really impressed upon me as a book blogger is how wonderful it is to feel part of a community.
For the first time ever I finally met some of my fellow bloggers this year and a Sydney meet up event. Marg from The Adventures of an Intrepid Reader did a great job organising it and I couldn't have enjoyed myself more.
Then more recently, Bernadette from Reactions to Reading and Fair Dinkum Crime sent me a really fun book (The Black Russian by Lenny Bartulin) all because I left a comment on her blog saying that I wanted to read it.
It's people like Bernadette and Marg and the fun of blogging get togethers and the like that has really made blogging worth while for me.
I have been blogging for 2 years now, and I can't wait for the many more to come. Thanks for your support everyone, I hope I get to know even more of you in the future. Have a glass of champagne on me.
