This Beautiful Struggle + [book]

My 1 Year Blogoversary!

My 1 year blogoversary is in 3 days! It's so hard to believe I've already been doing this for a year. It's been such an amazing experience.

I have lots of things planned. First, each day (Monday — Friday) of the next 2 weeks, I have the blogger/author blogging questions. As some of you may remember, I asked bloggers to sign up and volunteer to answer some questions. Now those will be posted, 1 question each day, in 3 parts. They begin at 6pm (EST) tonight. Everyone who volunteered, and got back to me with their answers, has been included. Make sure you check out all 3 parts to find your answer.

More questions were sent to a few of my favorite authors. They were kind enough to get back to me and those will begin tomorrow. I will be alternating days. (Links are below)

Some people may ask, why did you do this?? Well, I've witnessed a lot of negative behavior lately in our lovely blogging community. Bloggers against bloggers, authors against bloggers, bloggers against authors… and it's all terrible. I wanted to try to come up with a way to open up POSITIVE communication among the entire book community. It gives us a chance to share how much we appreciate each other. Most of us blog because we love it. Regardless of how we choose to do it, it's our personal blog and, in a way, it's like sharing your diary with the world. We all have one thing in common: we love books! We shouldn't worry about how others choose to run their own blog. Personally, I'm just thrilled to have made the connections and friendships I have, to be able to check out my friend's blogs each day, and discuss the books I love the most.
I wish I could fully explain how much you all mean to me. I read and love each comment I receive, and thank you all for taking the time to leave them. It's been a fabulous year and I hope I have many more blogging years to come!

Now, I bet you are wondering if you get anything from this big celebration. The answer is YES! I have several giveaways planned and they will be posted throughout the next 2 weeks. Once they are up, I will link them below and add the new giveaway each day. This post will be linked on the sidebar so it's easy to find.
