Our 5th Blogiversary & Giveaway!

Posted March 17, 2017 by Tanya in Discussions, Giveaway / 11 Comments

I can’t believe 5 years has passed! There have been a lot of ups and downs over these years. Times when the blog was running great. Great interaction, lots of reviews and posts. Then there were times when posts and reviews dropped, or got behind and it was a struggle to try and regain the followers that had given up on us. Many times, frustration led to thoughts of quitting, but I am doing this for fun and I have to keep reminding myself of that. It’s not about numbers, or how well my FB page is running. It’s about me, my interest in talking about my favorite (or not so favorite) books, and having a good time interacting with those followers who make it by and comment. I try to keep my focus on being an active part of the book blogging community and support the blogging friends I have made. Especially the ones who stuck with me through the tough stuff.

Because those of you who have stuck by me for all these years still pop by, I’m going to have a giveaway to thank you. You all mean a lot to me and it really is fun to talk with you all on the blog, since I don’t make it to Twitter or Facebook that often. I keep trying, but man, Twitter is still not my friend! 😉

For the next two week’s I’ll be running a giveaway for my readers. It is for the choice of a hard cover copy of Sweet Ruin by Kresley Cole or an Amazon $15 gift card. I hope you all join in and get some entries in. It’s not an entry, but a comment would be great too! Thank you all for being loyal Rantings of a Reading Addict followers!

  • Congratulations on your 5 year milestone. I am also in my fifth year and like you there have been ups and downs especially this last year. Here is to many more!

    • Thanks Heidi! Congrats on your fifth year too. It’s getting kind of hard to find the ones that stay around. Either that or I’m not paying enough attention, but my Bloglovin field doesn’t seem to have the variety of blogs that it used to.

  • Thanks! It blew me away when I realized how long it’s been

    Happy blogoversary! (I’m not on Snapchat.)

    • Thank you! I just got on Snapchat myself. Not the best at navigating or using it, but it seems to have some fun features.

  • Congrats on 5 years. I agree that doing this for fun is best. I don’t even look at my numbers. I post my reviews and people come when they do. Mostly it is people that I’m close with. I rarely get people I don’t know to comment. That’s okay with me. I hope to see you around for another 5+ years.
