Stay Bookish At Two Years!

2nd blogoversary

Two years of book blogging? While there are those who’ve blogged far longer, I think it’s no easy feat. To be honest, looking back from the point I created Stay Bookish, I never imagined really keeping up my blog and working hard to make it the best that I can make it to be. Still, book blogging grew to be something I’m passionate about and with it my love for reading. And that was the point of it all, wasn’t it? That I fall constantly in love with books as I do to this very day? That in itself makes my run with blogging so far successful for me.

But more to that, I feel like I’ve had so many other blogging triumphs to celebrate: connecting with so many amazing blogger and authors and book people, stats like 1k+ followers on Bloglovin’, 3k on Twitter (just today!), 2k+ on Instagram, 5k on Tumblr, launching a blog design shop, doing my first video interview with a favourite author, speaking at BEA Blogger Con and attending Book Expo America! Truly, I’m amazed and left wondering how that even happened. Nonetheless, I’m grateful for it- but most of all, I’m grateful for YOU, dear reader.

In the next year of blogging to come, I want to make Stay Bookish even better. But I need your help! By answering my reader survey, you can let me know your thoughts on the blog and you can have input on what I can do to take Stay Bookish further. I love my blog readers forever and this is my way of telling you: YOU MATTER. While this blog is technically mine because I write it, it’s also yours- to read and to enjoy. So do answer the survey so I can weigh in your recommendations for the blog!

And to thank you for answering the survey, for reading the blog, for just bearing with my flailing around the internet for two awesome years, here’s a chance to win books:

I am at a year and a half and I am nowhere near achieving what you have achieved. CONGRATULATIONS! Plus doing a panel at BEA, incredible.

  17. Happy 2 years! :)
    You’re an amazing blogger. I always attempt to create my own blog but it ends up rotting. I always end up posting nothing. Maybe, some other time.
    Anyway, keep up this pretty blog. I enjoy reading your posts. :)

  18. Wow! CONGRATULATIONS FOR TWO EFFING YEARS! Keep on keeping on, do what you love, and continue inspiring people to read :)

  19. Happy two year blogoversary, Hazel! I’ve been following your blog for what seems like forever and though I don’t stop by and comment as often as I’d like, I enjoy your posts and look forward to visiting your blog more in the future!

  20. HAPPY TWO YEARS! We are the same age in blogging years, hurrah! For some reason I had a totally inaccurate memory of our blogiversaries being on the same day O.o I don’t know where that came from LOL. Maybe ti was the same month that I’m remembering? Mine is June 3rd :D

    Anyway. YAY for two years. Stay Bookish is so lovely, and one of the first blogs I really remember LOVING when reading it, and visiting.

    I adore seeing your designs around the blogosphere (I have probably told you this too many times HAHA), and I hope to see more in the future.

    Here’s to more reading, blogging, and everything else awesome! <3

  21. Happy blogoversary! Stay strong. I really enjoy your reviews and how you help me with code related stuff. I hope you stay humble and nice x

  22. Two years! Wow, congratulations ate Hazel! This is my fave blog, both international and local.

  23. Congrats on hitting BIG 2! It is not easy to maintain and keep a book blog up to date, so each blogoversary is worthy of a big celebration! Don’t give up your passion for books and writing! I look forward to celebrating your BIG 3 with you next year.

  24. Congratulations Hazel! 2 years is a pretty short time to have achieved all of those you mentioned above so you know you’re doing a really good job in keeping this blog! I’m a big fan already since you’re into film photography too, aside from being a bibliophile! You’ve gained another loyal follower here! Have a good one!
