100 Follower Appreciation Giveaway

100 Followers

OMG guys!! Can't event tell you how excited I am that I reached over 100 followers on my blog. I started it in September. (actually right about October for this blog, my other one wasn't very user friendly at the time) I decided to start my blog because I read a lot and I love to talk about books. Most of my friends and family pretty much just ignore me, or get annoyed at all my book talk. I figured starting a blog was the perfect way to be able to talk about something I enjoy so much. It was never about followers or any of that. I do my blog because I truly enjoy it and it's an outlet for me, but it's really nice to know that people actually are interested in what I have to say.

When I started this blog, I had no clue what in the world I was doing. I am not very good at computer stuff, and I'm still not really, but I am learning. There have been so many awesome people that I have met since I started my blog, and actually started using my twitter account. One of my very first blog followers (who wasn't a friend or family) was Neri from In The Name Of Books She was so nice, and offered to help with anything I might have a question about trying to set up and get my blog going. I really appreciated that she was willing to help me even though she didn't know me at all. She is just one of many of the great people who I have gotten to know. K.C Neal, the author of Pyxis let me read and review her book, and be part of her blog tour when her book came out, even though I had almost no blog followers at the time and didn't have a clue what I was doing. (I was thinking to myself, how is this even helping to promote the book if no one knows about my blog) She gave me a chance and I can't thank her enough. Angeline Kace, author of Descended by Blood, is another author who tweeted and RT'd things that I posted on twitter to help bring attention to my blog when it was brand new. There are other bloggers and authors who have been so wonderful, and helpful too. I want to thank all of you.

Most of all I am so happy that I have made wonderful friends. You guys are awesome! I read each and every comment that is posted, and I appreciate that you stop by my blog. Thank you so much! To show my appreciation I want to do a giveaway. You do not have to be a blog follower to enter, but it is appreciated since this is a giveaway to thank my followers. It will be international as long as The Book Depository ships to you. The giveaway is for a book that is already out(as of the time the giveaway ends), of your choice up to $15.00 from The Book Depository. To enter just fill out the rafflecopter form below.

My blog is now an award free zone. I really appreciate the thought, but stopping by is reward enough for me. Thank you so much!!

I have been getting a ridiculous amount of spam comments so I have disabled anonymous comments. If you are an anonymous user and a real person, I apologize.

I love comments! I will try to respond to as many as I can. I read every one of them, even if I do not respond to them all.
