Every year around this time, I start to really think back to where I was x number of years ago, in this case, three years ago, before I started blogging. During this time, I was already on Twitter and I think that's what really got me into blogging. I was following all these blogs and after seeing all their tweets interacting with authors and all their tweets linking back to their blog posts -- all of it just fascinated me to no end. At the time, I wasn't even really sure what the term "blogging" meant. I think I even asked my sister, "What does blogging mean? Or what do you do?" She answered with, "It's probably like a journal and each post is an entry." I figured that since I sometimes journal that blogging shouldn't be that hard. So, eventually I started looking more and more into how to create a blogger account and how to get a decent enough design and... all of that. Before I knew it, I wrote up my very first post on October 19th, 2010.
Since then blogging has become such a huge part of who I am that it's crazy; I cannot believe that it's already going to be three years. That's insane, really! I mean, I've had Books Over Boys since I was a sophomore/junior in high school to now, wow!
Blogging has really helped me let my passion for the written word ignite like a wild fire. I've always loved reading but blogging has opened an enormous door into this world that I am madly in love with; on most days, I can't even begin to wrap my mind around all its possibilities.
Anyway, for the entire month of October, I'll be celebrating my three years. Each day, I'll have an author or a blogger or both dropping by to celebrate Books Over Boys turning three. There are fun little features that they'll be spotlighted in so I hope you will all come back each and every single day to check them out!
