Blog Birthday!

Hey Everyone!

Just a short one from me today to celebrate my little blogs birthday. 5 years old. I remember the day I started it. My school was going through the process of closing down and I needed something, a little project, to keep me going. I loved books and I was forever baking. Thus, booksandbakes1 was born. I’ve never looked back!

I wanted it to be a place for me to talk about the books I loved. I read through my first ever post this morning and it’s still the same for me. I never really expect anyone to read it or reply but I love it when they do. It’s always a surprise to have so many amazing people comment and check in. It’s a really special community.

There are three very special blogging friends, who have been with me since my very first day. Thank you, always.

There’s literally hundreds of blogs I’m inspired by daily. It really does feel like one massive family. I’m really humble to be a small part of it.

My plan for today is to read and maybe bake something. Have a beautiful day everyone!

Big love to you all xx

My 2015 in review!

Hey everyone!

I awoke to find this little email waiting for me and I have to say, I’m very excited.

I started my little blog in May, just as a little hobbie. I didn’t realise how much I would enjoy it and also the amazing other bloggers I would have met.

So, the WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.

Thank you WordPress!

 

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 4,300 times in 2015. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 4 trips to carry that many people.

I really can’t thank everyone enough for making my experience of being a ‘blogger’ so amazing. Everyone that’s just popped by and had a mooch around my blog, liked or commented on something, and those of you that even follow me, thank you.

There are some bloggers that are highlighted as being my ‘regulars’. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.

Click here to read the Booksandbakes1 report! Are you mentioned?

Before this gets too mushy, I’ll disappear, until the next post at least.

Big love xx
