Wow What can I say? I was chuffed to be nominated for this award, not once but twice by fellow book bloggers, so thank you it means a lot! Firstly I was nominated by Margaret over at bleachhouselibrary and then again by Tracey over at crimereaderblog
My blog has been running just over a year now and during that time I have discovered many new and exciting authors, I perhaps would not know about if it hadn't been for me setting up my blog and becoming a book blogger.
I have also met some wonderful people through Twitter and also in real life! One of the biggest events that have happened during this year is attending Sunlounger launch party; here I was able to meet some fabulous authors and other book bloggers that I had chatted to online for almost a year!
Unfortunately although this was not the only launch party I had been invited to, due to my ill health this year it was the only one I have been able to attend. I am hoping that I continue to get invited and in the new future I will be able to attend a lot more.
I have also participated in blog tours (before I started my blog I had no idea what these even were!) and have made many friends in the publishing world. I enjoy working with each and every one of you! Thanks for having me on board!
The best thing about being a book blogger is to hear others have read your blog and it has helped them select their next read. The best moment I had was when an author asked me what the name of my blog was, I told her and she told me she knew it! My little old blog!!!
The rules of the award state that I should share 7 things you may not know about me, and list 15 other blogs I find inspiring. To find 15 other bloggers that have not already been nominated maybe a little tricky as I think this has been around for a while now, so please just go with it!
7 things about me you may not know
1. I have visited 26% of the world (very proud of this fact!)
2. I play the flute (not done for about 12 years but I still know how to produce a note!)
3. I have worked as Cabin Crew
4. I have my belly button pierced (I know so '90's)
5. I have a degree in Fine Art
6. I am a trained manicurist
7. I LOVE Cats!!!! (My current cat is just coming up to being 22!!!)
In no particular order:
So there you go, I have only nominated 10 bloggers, however I am hoping they haven't been nominated before. If you have I'm sorry guys!!!
Hope you have enjoyed this post and look forward to hearing what you think!
