I can have facebook too!

Guess whose mini-birthday it is today? Today my little blog is exactly ONE MONTH old! πŸ™‚

I started the blog on the 26th of February. If you follow me on twitter you would have seen my tweets. I would like to clarify again, when I started the blog, I was NOT a book blogging virgin. I started out on a multi-author blog, but then decided to create my own identity and moved my posts here. So no need to think I’m superwoman who wrote 22 posts in one month! {Although I’d like to dream I am. I can barely read 5 books in a month!}

I wanted to start a facebook page for a while, but kept postponing it. Now I have one. Please do check out my facebook page. I’m really proud of what I was able to achieve in a month, starting off with ‘almost nothing’. I have quite a few followers,Β anΒ impressive amount ofΒ hits,Β  publishers following me on twitter, a bunch of netgalley approved books and today I was sent an email from a publisher informing me that I’m auto approved for all their titles. How nice are they? How did they know it’s my blog’s mini birthday? πŸ™‚

But most of all, I’m really happy about my followers being so interactive and kind towards me.Β  Thanks for following me, interacting with me on facebook (my personal page), on goodreads, twitter and especially for reacting on my posts. I love comments and discussions! Now you can interact with me on my official page too πŸ™‚

Thanks for reading.

      Nope, there’s no book reviews coming my way.

  • Yay! Welcome to the other side of blogging! I already ‘liked’

    • I saw, thanks Allison πŸ™‚

  • Congratulations!!!!! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  • Isi

    OK, I’m following your FB page!!
    I have been thinking about creating a FB page too, perhaps I will do it soon πŸ™‚

    • Thanks Isi!
      Yes you should πŸ™‚

  • im intrigued by the facebook page. I have my own account for personal stuff but never thought of one for the blog. whats the difference between your blog and your FB page would you say?

    • Quite honestly, I’m still trying to figure out how a page actually works. But I can tell you my motivation behind getting a facebook page for the blog is just another way for someone to follow my blog. I have these options: wordpress follow, follow by email, bloglovin, twitter and now facebook. I have been posting my links on my personal facebook account, but I feel I don’t want to annoy the people who might not be interested. I know I shouldn’t care – it’s my facebook timeline afterall.

      But I think with creating a facebook page it’s better so my friends who like my blog can follow my updates via facebook. I just want to make it easier for people to follow my blog. I have come across a lot of blogs where I love the content, but they make it difficult for you to follow them. Blogs that don’t have the follow button or the follow by email button and neither the bloglovin. It makes me have to search on bloglovin if they are registered there. Sooner or later I just loose interest.

        Yes, yes, yes to ALL of that. I created my own page for the very same reasons πŸ™‚

        • And I love the pictures that you post! πŸ™‚

      • Ooh, you know. Just realized, my blog is probably difficult to follow as well. I have a twitter and an email-subscription, but not much else. Although, I am registered with bloglovin, I haven’t put up an icon on my blog.

        Facebook also I use only for personal updates, if any at all. Hmm, how easy/difficult is it to create a Facebook page, and is there a way to keep it separate from your personal Facebook account, do you know?

        • You should consider putting up a bloglovin icon on your blog πŸ™‚

          I have a facebook account and I have made myself a admin, so that I can still browse facebook with the same login. I find it a bit difficult with the page login alone. I am still trying to figure out exactly how it work, but as long as I can post content I am happy.

          Mine was separate at first, yes.

  • Happy belated blog anniversary!

  • Kind of late but happy month anniversary. Liked your facebook page and I love your blog so keep up the good work

    • Thanks Ciska! I love your blog too and the fact that we like so many of the same books. You’ve inspired me to read something in the native language… oh and pick up a Dutch book! πŸ˜‰

  • Wow your blog is super pretty! I honestly stared at your header for a while before I even scrolled down at all. Happy One Month to you! So happy that you have accomplished so much in that short time. πŸ™‚

    • Thanks Jenni! I love that header picture, it’s so pretty.
      I think the reason why I’ve been able to accomplish so much is because I had a few people that followed on the old blog that decided to follow me here. And ofcourse, I networked alot and I still do (I will never stop, because I love interaction!)

  • Happy 1 month! Looking forward to what 2, 3, 4, 5…. hold in store!

    • Thank you! Let’s make those numbers years, I don’t plan to stop πŸ˜‰

  • Congrats! You have accomplished so much in just one month. I will definitely check out your facebook page – I’ve been thinking of getting one myself. πŸ™‚

  • Woo hoo!!! Love it! πŸ™‚

    • I know, you “liked” me πŸ™‚
