10 years ago today this was my 1st post on Dollycas’s Thoughts on Blogger:
1. BE A BETTER PERSON
2. START A BLOG
3. READ 140 BOOKS
After a few posts introducing myself and my TBR stacks, I reviewed my first book, The Cat, The Quilt, and the Corpse by LeAnn Sweeney. I went on to have 796 posts before I moved the blog to WordPress on October 11, 2011. Since then I have added 3425 posts of which more than half have been reviews. In fact, since joining GoodReads in January of 2011, I have read 1904 books and reviewed all but a few that were read “just for fun”.
Through my blog, I have met so many amazing people, authors, publicists, bloggers and readers just like you reading this post. I am beyond grateful for all of these wonderful connections.
One group of fabulous people are the publicists from Kensington Books. Some have moved on and I miss them, but the current crew of Larissa, Michelle, and Lulu, have been so extraordinary. When I reached out to them about books for this week’s giveaways they were so supportive. Kensington Books will be partnering with me for most of the giveaways this week. I am thrilled to share their books with you all year long and so excited to share these giveaways!
So what better way to start off my 10th year than a 10 book giveaway!
