It’s my second Blogiversary!

20/07/2016 Blogging, Personal, Uncategorized 30

It's my second blogiversary!I can’t believe it! Another year has gone by, and Boats Against The Current turns two today!

When I started out blogging I was kind of doubtful as to whether or not I’d actually manage to stick with it (I’m a bit of a serial hobbyist!), so I’m pretty pleased that two years later I’m still going.

I started this blog just after finishing university to have some kind of creative outlet whilst I wondered what to do next with my life, but it’s proven to be so much more than that! I’ve met some lovely people through blogging who share my passion for books and it still amazes me that anyone at all finds my ramblings interesting. So thanks to everyone out there who reads and comments on my posts. It really means a lot (sorry, I’ll stop being all emotional now! But I think I’m allowed to be: my blog baby just turned two!)!

For my Blogiversary I thought I might do the same as last year and list my favourite books from my second year of blogging, plus the posts that I have enjoyed writing the most or that have proved most popular.

    Happy blogoversary, Laura! ^__^ It’s crazy how fast two years can go, right? I’ve been blogging for two years now as well.

    By the way, your hair is amazing. Blue or pink, you rock it both!

    Congratulations, Laura! 🙂 I know, blog birthdays are the best, they make me feel emotional, too.
    My blog turned two in May this year, so it’s only two months older than yours! 🙂

    • Laura

      Thank you! 🙂
      And congratulations on your own two years of blogging. That’s awesome! I didn’t actually know our blogs were so close in age!

    • Laura

      Thanks! 🙂
      And congratulations on your 6th month anniversary! That’s awesome! I hope you continue to enjoy blogging as much as I have in the future 🙂

    Congratulations (somewhat belatedly)! I especially enjoy your thoughtful discussion posts. You are the one who started me on the Book Blogger Discussion challenge too, for which many thanks. I hope your third year of blogging brings ever more joy to you as well as your readers.

    • Laura

      I’m glad you enjoy my discussion posts! And I’m really happy to know that I introduced someone to the Discussion challenge, as it’s such an awesome challenge 🙂

    Congrats on your 2-year! I’ll have been doing it for 2 years in September, it’s amazing how fast the time flies!

    I also love the new pink hair. I don’t usually like pink as a color, but it looks really good on you!

    • Laura

      Thank you! And congrats on your own upcoming blogiversary! Time really does just fly by 🙂
      Aww, thank you! I feel like I suit the pink a bit more than the blue (as much as I loved the blue!).

  8. Shannon @ It Starts at Midnight

    Congratulations!! Happy two years, and I hope you have many, many more to come! I am glad you have found such a great outlet in this community, and in blogging in general 😀 I will be celebrating my third soon, which doesn’t seem possible- especially because it is the day before my son turns 3, and that REALLY doesn’t seem possible ? It’s amazing how fast the time goes by when we’re doing something we love!

    • Laura

      Thank you! 🙂
      Congrats on your upcoming blogiversary! Three years is AMAZING! And Happy Birthday to your son! Time really does just fly by. 🙂

    • Laura

      Thanks! Its been so nice meeting you too, and I really enjoy reading your blog 🙂
      Congrats on your 3.5 years of blogging! That’s amazing! I know what you mean, my blog has completely changed my life too. I thought i’d enjoy it as a hobby, but I didn’t expect to get so much out of it!

  9. Pamela

    I’m so happy for you! I didn’t know our blogs were almost siblings! Mine will be two at the end of August, the 30th, to be exact XD

    I love your blog, and your discussions, and specially when you post about writing struggles because I CAN RELATE SO MUCH!

    Keep being awesome!

    Happy blogoversary! It’s interesting to see which of your posts were most popular this year, from the titles it seems they are all discussion type of posts, those are most popular on my blog usually as well.

    My fourth blogoversary will be in December and I am still surprised sometimes that I’ve been doing this for almost four years now. I didn’t really think about how long I would keep it up, although usually when I find a hobby I stick with it. I never expected blogging to become such a big part of my life though, but I still love blogging, even though it can be stressful sometimes.

    • Laura

      Thanks! 🙂
      Discussion posts definitely seem to do the best on my blog, and it seems like it’s the same for other bloggers too. I, for one, love reading discussions the most!
      Congratulations on your upcoming blogoversary! Four years is amazing! I’m glad you still love blogging so much after all this time. I know what you mean about it being stressful at times though!
