Welcome to the start of the Summer Blogger Promo Tour hosted by The Book Bratz! I have Jess from Princessica of Books on my blog. Today is actually her 1 year blogiversary and she is celebrating over on her blog. I decided to go along with that and continue the party over here with her 10 most memorable blogging moments. Congrats on an amazing first year Jess, I hope you have many more to come!
Hi everyone! Considering today is my blogiversary (you can check out my celebration post on my blog), Dana suggested I talk about 10 memorable blogging moments.
- Getting my first ARC.
I still remember what book it was, too--Weird Girl and What's Her Name by Meagan Brothers. I gave it 5 stars and I actually still have it!
- Participating in #RQWN.
If you don't know, #RQWN stands for Random Questions With Nori which is a sporadic Twitter chat hosted by @ReadWriteLove28 over on Twitter. It was so fast and so much fun; I made countless friends through that chat, including Nori.
- When Nori followed me!
Speaking of Nori, I was super ecstatic when she followed me on Twitter; she's basically a blogging celebrity to me! I'm so happy that we've gotten closer over the months. Definitely check out her blog, too!
- Reaching 1k on Instagram.
I'm definitely a bookstagram newbie so I was equally surprised and excited when I reached 1k. I'm actually at 1.5k now and you can follow here @princessicaofbooks!
- Reaching 500 Wordpress followers.
Another stats milestone! Ah, I was super happy because I've been bordering 500 for a while, but a lot of my Twitter friends helped spread the word. Without them, I don't think I could've reached 500 before my blogiversary.
- Hosting 12 Days of Winter.
12 Days of Winter is a seasonal event I hosted (and I might do again) 12 days before Christmas, where I got several bloggers guest post on a winter-y/ holiday topic. It was a lot of fun collaborating with other bloggers and it's actually quite similar to this. I'm hoping to do it again this year!
- Participating in #SBPT.
Granted this is my first post, I'm having tons of fun collaborating with other bloggers. I've actually written up a couple more already and have had a couple sent to me so far & I'm very excited to share them all with you!
- Joining The Bookish Blog.
A couple months ago, I started contributing to The Bookish Blog. It's really fun working on different themes and with all the wonderful ladies. We also buddy read and buddy reading with them always produces interesting results!
- Becoming blogging besties with Lillie @ Little Lillie Reads.
Hm, maybe this shouldn't be on the list since it's not *one* specific moment but I'm including it anyways. I'm incredibly grateful for this Florida native; she's there when I need her & I owe a lot to her!
- Going to YALLWest!
Ah, this book festival was so fun & I got tons of books signed and acquired! Not 100% related to blogging but I did meet a few bloggers there so somewhat related ;).
So those are my top 10 blogging moments! I wouldn't say it is in that order but they are all very important events to me. I cannot be thankful enough for Dana for having me & all of you who are reading this--thanks for the support & don't forget to check out my blogiversary post + giveaway (link to come)!
Jess is your local blogger, bibliophile, feminist, and a future cat-lady. She enjoys supporting her local library and absolutely adores indie bookstores. When she is not reading or doing any other bookish sorts, she is probably listening to Troye Sivan, tweeting (@PrincessicaOB), or doing schoolwork [yes, although she hates it, she is quite responsible]. Feel free to chat with her onTwitter, Goodreads, Instagram or email her at princessiccaaaa[at]gmail[dot]com. Yes, two c's and four a's. You can also find Jess at The Bookish Blog.
