Six years of blogging

I’ve never really done anything for my “blogaversary” but I figure after six years of blogging at this blog — whether it was called Bacon & Whiskey or Amoeba Kat Musings or whatever name it might have in the future — maybe a little celebration is in order.

This is how I celebrate.
This is how I celebrate.

Some people do full on blog parties for their blogging anniversaries. I truly admire that. I would attempt it, but I know I don’t have it in me to do it right. Better I leave it to the pros.

Instead, I’m just going to make an effort to post here more often between today and the anniversary. I don’t know if I’ll manage every day, but I will try very hard. There might be a lot of pictures of food (Thanksgiving is coming up!).

So, anytime between now and October 19th, if you leave a comment on one of my posts here (remember, comments close after 2 days), I’ll enter you into a draw. (This includes this post. No pressure on comment content. So long as it’s not spam or harassment, it counts.) The winner of the draw will receive an ebook. I haven’t decided which one yet, but it’ll either be by me or Kaimana Wolff.

I’ll announce the winner on the 19th and contact you via email about your prize (so make sure you use a valid email when commenting). I wish you all luck.

One other thing: I’m going to try something over the next few days. Thanksgiving is coming up so I’m going to try to end each blog post with something I’m grateful for. My original idea was to do several posts, each dedicated to a thing I’m grateful for, but I think this is more workable.

So.

Today, I am grateful for my ability to stick to this blog for so long.

  1. Wow. Congrats on six years! That’s amazing! I can’t wait to read your books. I will sooner or later, — they’re near the top of my reading list, money is just usually REALLY tight. You do such a great job with your blog and I’ve found it really helpful several times.

    1. Wow, thank you. That means a lot to me!

      I totally understand about money being tight, so no worries. Not sure if you’re aware but I actually have both Bellica and Stranger Skies available to read free, online. The links go to the blogs where I’ve posted each chapter as a blog post. Stranger Skies is the ARC version, so it’s not the exact same version as what’s available for sale. Though I know reading it online on a blog is not the easiest for most folks, I just wanted to make sure you knew about that option. 🙂 (While I’d love someday for my writing to be my main source of income, currently my biggest concern is being read. So I keep those two books online for folks to read and — hopefully — become fans.)
