I created a blog.
I thought of the only theme that made sense to me-- Down The Rabbit Hole-- and decided I was going to talk about the things I loved most which were books and movies and writing and my cats.
I put my first post out there in the big wide web and waited with baited breath for... nothing. No one followed me and no one talked back. So I decided to roll up my sleeves and really get into this blog thing. I learned the ropes, all the technical stuff, how to gain followers, where to go for advice, what blogs to follow and somewhere along the way, I found out about the amazing community of the blogosphere.I found like minded individuals that were just as passionate about the things I loved as I was.
Fast forward to today and I can't believe how much something that started out so little has grown. I went from no book reviews to 78. No followers to almost 1600. From Blogspot to Shelfari to Goodreads and beyond. Two background changes and a million new blogs to follow! Big thanks to all of you who comment and who follow me. I can't express what your commitment and passion mean to me.
So to thank you even more, I'm giving some stuff away!
