It Takes a Community to Raise a Blog

Blogoversary banner

A year ago this Saturday, Heather’s creativity and desire spawned the The Turning Pages blog. The following April, she asked me to adopt and participate in the molding of her ‘baby.’ Like all new parents, we had our missteps and our stumbles. But thanks in large part to the wonderful camaraderie and the open, nurturing spirit of the blogging community, the experience of ‘raising’ this blog has been nothing but wonderful. Our patient brethren have never hesitated to answer the occasional ‘dumb’ question, and the blind, unified support is nothing short of overwhelming. Without fail, we are always over the moon when fellow bloggers comment on our posts with words of encouragement and creative suggestions. Not only supplying us when the quintessential feeling of, “you like me, you really like,” but you give us a window to come in and enjoy your blogs. So on behalf of Heather and myself, thank you fellow bloggers and followers, both old and new. Our baby girl would not be turning into the beautiful young girl she is if not for your love and support!

A prime example of this love and generosity? In November of this year, Heather and I got to meet some of the wonderful blogging souls at Poe’s Tavern during Y’ALLFEST in Charleston, SC. We are now friends both in real life and all social media venues with all the lovely ladies that we shared wine and talk of all things books on that blessed evening. One of those awesome women, Lisa from Dizneeee’s World of Books, be sure to check out her AWESOME blog, is generously sponsoring a book giveaway: winner’s choice up to $20!
