It’s been way too long since I did a tag! A giant shout out to Meghan @ Meghan’s Whimsical Explorations & Reviews for tagging me. Thank you Meghan!
Who was your very first follower (if you can find out)? Tag them and give them a shout out!
My first follower was Olivia-Savannah @ Olivia’s Catastrophe back when I had my blog in Blogger. She was also the first person to ever comment on my blog. She’s probably one of the nicest bloggers I’ve ever interacted with and you guys should definitely go check her blog out!
What was the last milestone you reached?
Combining my WordPress and Bloglovin’ followers, I recently reached a 100 followers. THAT’S CRAZY TO ME. Seriously, I cannot believe it. Blogging isn’t about stats but I’m not going to lie and say it doesn’t feel good when people like/comment/follow. It’s the greatest feeling ever so thank you to anyone who’s reading this and to everyone who has ever visited my site.
What was the very first post you posted on your blog? Share it with us!
Oh, reading my first post is cringe-worthy! It was on Blogger and I called it Introduction . (I had originally called it Greetings Muggles but ended up changing it). It was also back when I was a sophomore in high school, knew nothing about blogging or writing or designing or basically anything you need to know as a blogger.
Who was your most recent follower? Tag them and give them a shout out!
My most recent follower was Cali’s Book Camp. Thank you for the follow!
What was the last post you posted and who was the very first person who took their time to click the like button? Give them a shout out!
How many months have you been blogging for?
I have been blogging for about 25 months! Except I’ve only been blogging seriously for 18 months. That’s still longer than I had anticipated when I first made my blog and I’m so glad I stayed!
Do you have any bloggers you’re friends with? Give them a shout out.
A pretty good portion of my real-life friends also have blogs. They don’t all have book blogs but it’s crazy we all decided to blog. We were meant to be.
Stellah @ The Little Book Nerd’s Life is all in all one of the best people I know and you guys should definitely go check out her blog. She writes very thoughtful and thorough book reviews and always has great insight. I convinced [forced] another friend (Briah @ Empire of Starlight) to create a blog except, when you make someone start a blog, they’re bound to stop posting (which she did). Another friend, Cindy @ Stranger Things Have Happened, posts little snippets of her life, her rants, advice and whatnot. She pretty much talks about anything and everything and her posts are almost always hilarious. And if you’re currently in college and looking for college-lifestyle bloggers, check out Making My Way and Fiercely Living. They both give great advice and tips on the do’s and don’ts of college life.
And there are so many bloggers who I’ve met in the blogosphere who are absolutely amazing and I’m so glad I’ve decided to be a blogger just so I can interact with your awesomenesses (yay, run-on sentences!). Of course Meghan @ Meghan’s Whimsical Explorations & Reviews. A few other people on this long list are: Jasmine @ How Useful It Is, Jackie B. @ Death by Tsundoku, Olivia-Savannah @ Olivia’s Catastrophe, Wendy @ What the Log Had to Say.
Wow, this answer was longer than expected.
Who originally created the last meme or tag you participated in? Give them a shout out!
The last meme I posted was Diversity Spotlight Thursdays and it was created by Aimal @ Bookshelves and Paperbacks. It’s a great meme that highlights diverse books.
Have you any social media related to your blog?
I started using Twitter because of my blog and now I love it! And I have a Pinterest though it’s not exactly blog related because I pretty much pin anything I like. Here are all the places you can find me:
Last but not least …. just say thanks to all your followers
Seriously! Thank you for reading and liking and commenting, you guys are the bestest of the bestest!
If I mentioned you in this post, YOU ARE TAGGED (unless you’ve already done it or don’t want to do it, no pressure). And if I didn’t mention you but you haven’t done this tag, you’re tagged too!
