I can't believe that today is my 3 year Blogoversary!!! Three years ago today, I was sitting in my recliner reading some other blogs (I had just come across "Blogs" a few days earlier), and I thought, "Hey, I can do this!!" Earlier in the month, I discovered eBooks along with rediscovering my love of reading. I decided that it was such a great idea to track what I read, as well as, write about my feelings about the books. So, I investigated some blog sites and decided to use Blogger.

I am so very thankful that I started reading again. I had been without books for years and didn't realize how much I missed them. Searching the web one night, I came across and the idea of eBooks. I had no clue how that random search would change my life. The first eBook that I read was Christine Feehan's Dark Prince. That was also my first step into the paranormal world!! I couldn't get enough of them. While looking for books to read...that is how I discovered book blogs. People actually got online and discussed their love of books!!!

The first book I blogged about was Nicholas Sparks' The Notebook. It was a brief, quick..."I loved this book" post, but it was my first book post. As I read over my earlier posts...I have to laugh at how inexperienced I was at this new endeavor.

Over the years, I have learned a great deal. How to add items to my sidebar, how to change my background, adding links and pictures, and am continually learning new things as I participate in different events. I have also learned a few things about posting my thoughts on my reading material. I have revamped these posts several times and am happy now with the way that I write these types of posts. I know I still have a lot to learn, but the fun and enjoyment I have experienced, as well as the friends I have made, and the challenges that I have participated in throughout the years has been a phenomenal ride!!

I would also like to take a few minutes and thank all of you followers and commenters of my blog. Never in a million years would I have imagined that people would actually follow my blog let alone comment on it. I really do appreciate each and every one of you. I get so excited when I get an email saying that there is a comment on my blog!!! Thank you all so very much!!

I won't be hosting a giveaway this year...because I am participating in BlogFest 2010 where I will have several contests going for some great books. The BlogFest is September 10th - 12th...I hope everyone will stop is going to be a lot of fun and a great way to learn about new blogs out there!!!

Happy 3rd Kara. I, too, am glad that you have a blog. Your blog is delightful & easy on the eyes & you have a calm way about you that I enjoy. I never did link up with you at Lori's. So busy getting ready I forgot to get your number to text you while I was there.Duh.
Next time.

Thoughts of Joy said...

Happy Blogiversary, Kara! I wish you many, many more wonderful blogging years! It certainly does change one's life, doesn't it? (all for good, of course)

I just finished my first eBook and really enjoyed the format (and the book). However I will not purchase many (at $10) because if I'm going to spend that much money - I want it on my shelf! :)
