I cannot believe the time has come to have our very last Mini Challenge! I am still making my way through some of the previous ones (don’t worry, your comments are coming!) but I have seriously LOVED looking through your guys’ posts all day. You are such a wonderful, kind, talented, super awesome group of people and I am honored to have been able to “meet” you through today’s events.
For this very last challenge we ask that you write about your top blogging moments so far. It can be actual book events or personal things that have happened with you and your blog. Whatever the case may be, write up a post listing them off then come back here to link up. Please take a chance to go around to fellow Love-A-Thon participants to check out some of their favorite moments as well!
So the past two and a half years of blogging have been phenomenal! I have been truly blessed to stumble into such an awesome community of bloggers, authors, publishers, and other fantastic bookish people. It is truly those of you that have made each milestone, stumble, and accomplishment so very worth it. While blogging has not only introduced me to awesome people in the blogging community by it has also given me the opportunity to meet some incredible authors!
Author events, book signings, the RT Conference, etc. have all given me the opportunity to meet some truly incredible writers. And guys, being a book nerd it is like HOLY FREAKING AMAZEBALLS, I GET TO MEET AN AUTHOR each and every time!
On top of that, I have had the pleasure to meet some pretty spectacular bloggers in person! While this has been more limited because let’s face it, Michigan houses not too many bloggers (there are a few though and they rock), so it makes this part a bit harder. Regardless, I enjoy the time that I have with these bloggers in real life every time!
But as incredible as all of these opportunities have been (and trust me, they have been AMAZING), it is nothing compared to the day-to-day conversations, amounts of support, and incredible kindness I see coming from the blogging community. I thought about the Love-A-Thon 2 years ago on Valentines Day. At that time I just suggested people try to comment on 5 blogs to “help spread the love”. And then last year’s Love-A-Thon proved to be a success with bloggers signing up to help spread blogger love all over. BUT today blew all of that away and I owe that to my lovely co-host Alexa and all of you! I choose today as my favorite moment because you have all been so freaking amazing. Honestly, I cannot say that enough. It has been a true honor to host this event because you guys are amazeballs. Thank you, thank you, thank you for making today not only so incredible but also so full of love, support, and a sense of community around the blogosphere!
