My 1 Year Blogoversary is Tomorrow!

Woot! Woot! Tomorrow is my 1 year Blogoversary!

And what an awesome year it was! How did I attract 775 awesome followers? How did I surpass 50,000 pageviews? Who the heck knows? I don't, but I'm more than delighted, ecstatic, trilled, elated and euphoric…because I owe it all to you!!!

So, starting tomorrow and continuing for the next few weeks I will be running a lot of AWESOME book giveaways! Not just awesome books, but most of these awesome books are SIGNED! Yep…a few months back I started a collection just for this event. And I’m soooooo excited to do it! Because what I love most about book blogging are all the totally awesome friends I’ve made!

I’ve also got some really exciting news! If you haven’t already noticed, my blog has had an extreme blog makeover, and I’ve now got a new personalized avatar! My punk-rock, kick-butt avi defines all that is awesomesauce! My new blog design is more than drool worthy, and it’s all thanks to the unbelievably talented Parajunkee from Parajunkee Design. So thanks Parajunkee!!! The wait is totally worth it!

So make sure you stop by tomorrow to take advantage of my first giveaway! And make sure you also stop by Parajunkee Design below!
