I was really hoping to get to 500 followers before writing this milestone post!*
*Edit: I’ve reached 500 followers a day later!
Today is the day that ReadandReview2016 reaches its first blogging anniversary!
I honestly can’t believe the time has flown so quickly – one year ago, I was feeling nervous and scared about putting my energies into writing for such a public audience. Now, I really don’t regret it.
Sometimes it has been a bit of struggle to write blog posts I’m happy with, but most of the time it has been a thoroughly enjoyable experience.
I’ve written book reviews, film reviews, book tags, joined Twitter**, come up with my own book-themed challenges and even collaborated with other bloggers***, as well as joining Rosie’s Book Review Team.

Hopefully I’ve developed as a blogger and writer, and I look forward into writing new forms of blog post this year. One example being my new series that I started at the end of January: From One Blogger To Another, where I interview/discuss various book or film themed topics with other bloggers. For a new year of blogging, I’ve also changed and updated the rest of my blogging schedule– you can find details about this here.
To all my followers, whether you’ve recently joined ReadandReview, or you’ve been a follower for a long while, thank you for continuing to read, share, like, or comment on my blog posts. My favourite aspect of blogging is when I receive comments – feedback, discussion points, encouragement, you name it – so please don’t forget to leave one!
***Thank you to all the bloggers I’ve collaborated with, or written guest posts for, over the last year:
Here’s to another year of blogging!
