1 Year Anniversary + Giveaway! // I Changed My Blog URL!
I'm finally a one year old! Well, my blog is finally a one year old. That is, if you don't count the month long absences, the constant forgetting to post and the week that I spent volunteering without any internet. It might not seem like a long time thinking back to it, but trust me, that one week could have been two months for all I know. Yes, time spent in a rural village in Thailand and hanging out with elephants was fun, but it also completely disconnected you from the rest of the world... anyway.
I just wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone who has been reading my blog (that includes my grandparents and my parents) because even though I write because it's fun, it would also be a little disheartening to write without an audience. I honestly never thought I would be able to continuously post on here. Looking at my track record with youtube (think: posting 6 videos, and then disappearing for 6 months) it was almost an inevitability that I would stop writing posts. Alas, here I am.
On a sidenote, I've decided to incorporate some more lifestyle blog posts into my writing and have changed my blog url to my name! In case you were confused, I used to be franklybooks and now I'm fleurhenley.
Here are some achievements I've had within my (kind of) year of blogging:
Learnt how to use Bloglovin'
Got 50+ followers on Bloglovin'
Started using twitter!
Attempted to be a regular instagram poster. It didn't work, but it was worth a shot.
Beat my goodreads goal last year
Made 10+ discussion posts! You can find them here x
Did my first sponsored post here
Get on with the giveaway.Right, the giveaway. Well I figured that due to me having over 100 books on my shelves that haven't been read, it probably wouldn't be very wise to buy myself a new book to celebrate – so I'm going to be buying a new book for one of you guys instead. One lucky winner will be able to choose any book on Book Depository that is under $12 USD! Please keep in mind that if you are the winner, I will have to know your address for me to send it to you. Therefore please be over 18 or have your parent's permission to do that!
