That Artsy Reader Girl is 2 Years Old!

Posted November 30, 2013 by Jana in About Me / 11 Comments


Sometimes I forget that I have not been blogging forever, which is why I kind of ALWAYS forget my blogoversary. I just realized that the blog turned two about a week and a half ago! Yay! To be honest, I never thought I would last this long as a book blogger. I thought I’d have fun for a few months and then fizzle. I had no idea I would love blogging as much as I do, and I am so excited about all the life changes this blog has brought on. The biggest one was probably my decision to go to grad school to get my master’s in Library and Information Science. I’m a graphic designer! Who would have thought I’d get a master’s in something so vastly unartistic. I just finished my first extremely successful semester, and am more convinced than ever that I made the right choice.

A big thing that happened for the blog this year was the switch from my blogspot url to my .com one, in conjunction with my switch from Blogger to WordPress! I also designed a brand new layout for my blog, and I really love it. The change has taken book blogging to an entirely new level for me! If you are thinking of moving, do it.

I’m so thankful for this blog, and for everyone I have met through it. I’m thankful for my fellow bloggers, the awesome authors and publishers and publicists I have worked with, and the books I never thought I would have read, but ended up LOVING. That Artsy Reader Girl has changed my life. I can’t wait to see what new experiences come in my third year! Thanks so much for all your support. :)

  1. Happy Blogoversary Jana! I cannot believe that we blog for the same amount of time. I honestly thought you started before me :)
    I’m glad you do because without you my blogging and book gushing would be more boring – a lot more!
