In many ways, it’s been forever since I started blogging. Other times, I’ll sit back and remember my last blogoversary as if it was yesterday. Whatever it is, I’ve been blogging for three whole years.
I have a lot of people to thank – some who have made this past year amazing, others who have been by my side since September 1st, 2010 when IceyBooks just began. Most of all, I have YOU to thank. YOU, who I may not even know, who I may never have even spoken to. YOU. For reading, commenting, taking a minute or two or five out of your busy life to just type in my URL and see what I’m up to.
Without readers, I’d be no one. Not only would IceyBooks never exist, but so many other aspects of my life would never have existed either.
This year, I’ve blogged less than I used to. I’m ashamed by it, but I’m also proud to say that I have Asma to help me with posting. For the past few months, she’s been working on this little blog more than I have.
But this blog has been a starting point for so many important parts of my life. It gave me friends, it helped me start my business, IceyDesigns, and now, it’s the platform for my book, UNBREATHABLE, which I’ve been working on since my last blogoversary. It gave me something to look forward to everyday, something to feel useful about.
So as a thank you, I’m offering one lucky reader a $50 gift card to Amazon – all thanks to the awesome people at AO.com. Enter away! And thank you. All of you.
