One Year Anniversary!

1 Year Anniversary AchievementI can not believe it!  I have been writing on this blog for a year!  What?  The time flew by.  It seems like just yesterday that I decided to start blogging about my passion.  So, since today is so special I will share with you the story behind why I started blogging about books.

 

It began when I was young.  My mom taught me how to read and write.  I loved it; the sound of the words flowing haltingly over my tongue and my hand making the shape of the twisted and shaky letters.  From then on reading became an obsession.  If I wasn’t at school or playing outside I was reading.

My first blog post was very formal and just told the premise of the story without actually giving a review.  I was nervous and I was unsure about what I wanted to say and how to say it.  As time continued I loosened up and now I try to write more detailed posts regarding my opinion on the book not, just the book review.

So, thank you to all of my followers and my family and friends who gave me the idea to start this blog and continue with it.  Thank you!

    Hi

    Thanks for the follow *. The reason I write is to share.
    * (Though my family and close friends say it would be far more entertaining with a video-camera # in “real life”, rather than in cyberspace!)

    # By the way, do they still make them in today’s ever-faster changing world..or is it all done with mobile phones?

    (get with the times now,”luddite”* c – it should be a smart phone)

    * or so I was often called by my “my techno-geek” friend, Bill (“the gonk”)

    “total non-techno” c (who doesn’t possess a mobile phone, after a rather eventful’ experience some years back, whilst trying to walk, talk and chew gum at the same time)

    Who says men can’t multi-task!

    Kind regards and all the best with your blog

    Happy wring/blogging
