I turned 1! + INTL Giveaway

I turned 1

I’m so excited to tell everyone that yesterday my little blog turned 1!

I started blogging because I’d graduated from undergrad and I wanted something to do with my time. I had also just started reading the young adult genre (The Demon Trapper Series by Jana Oliver to be precise) and I was having so much fun I decided to blog about what I was reading. My final initial reason for blogging was because I used to love to write. Throughout my teen years I had kept a digital journal (after years of my younger cousin reading my print ones) and I loved writing in it every day. I had made a number of friends through that digital diary and now that I didn’t use it anymore, I wanted to revisit that experience.

Once I put together A Nanny’s Literary Musings (which by next year might be named something else because I keep getting emails about nanny products and services and guest posts and just ugh!) I had gotten all the things I was looking for in one little package.

So while things have not always been consistent I am making a promise to myself to blog more often in the coming year. The scheduling has really helped to hold myself accountable to you guys. Thank you for joining me on this crazy adventure.

Before I go I’d like to announce a giveaway for a book up to $20 from the Book Depository. If you want to purchase two $10 books that is okay, too, as long as you don’t go over $20.

The rules:

  • This is an International Giveaway provided The Book Depository ships to you
  • You can spend up to $20 (this can be for a print or ebook(s) or for a pre-order).
  • The Giveaway runs from May 14th to May 31st!
  • That’s it. Good luck!

  1. Happy blogoversary!!! I hope you have another great year ahead! 🙂 I’m not sure what I would ask for if I won, maybe a pre-order of 1 of my 2013 anticipated books, like This Song Will Save Your Life or Moxie and the Art of Rule Breaking! 🙂

    1. It’s embarrassing but I haven’t read either of those series yet! I do, however, have the first book of each series on my shelf. I plan on reading those along with many others now that the warm weather is back and I can read outside again.
