#READINGWITHLUIGI1STANNIVERSARY : ANNOUNCEMENTS, INTRODUCTION AND GIVEAWAY!




Hello Readers! Welcome!

Today's post will all be about announcements, introduction, and giveaway to celebrate my upcoming....

1ST BLOG ANNIVERSARY!



May it be called blogoversary, blogiversary, blogversary, or anything else, I don't care!

I've nearly reached my FIRST YEAR as blogger!

Apologies if today's post will be too short, I just want to formerly announce my celebration and giveaway prizes!

--

So, about less than a year ago, this happened..

Not my best post. LOL.


And about less than a year after, this post happened!

Isn't that freakin' amazing!!


As I've told you guys a lot, I'm very very surprised that I was able to put up at least a post or two per month. I'm usually the person that gets bored easily.

I've had three? bookstagram accounts that all of them I decided to put down because I wasn't active anymore.

and then..

Blogger came into my mind!

I was so scared at first.

Scared of being not too good enough, not having any pageviews, criticisms (the rude ones, tho. Constructive criticism are welcome here in my blog.), rejections, and all of those things but thankfully, I stayed and continued blogging up to this very moment!

So to everyone who's reading this and they're planning to step up and do something they haven't done before, here's a piece of advice, take that step and accept it, learn from it, develop it.

--

My blog started out as a piece of chaos. (literally, HAHA.)

I don't know how to do my own header, outro, sidebars, everything!

Back then, I was just a thirteen year old boy, struggling to become a writer and an IT at the same time to make his blog greater! HAHA.

And then, I've met a lot of awesome people who've helped me use the different tools blogger has. Thank you and you know who you guys are!

Months passed by, I had supporters and haters (believe me, yes. HAHA) and I've developed both as a person and a blogger..

and now, we're here Readers! We've reached almost a year! Cheers to everyone!

--


So, what do you plan to do in your anniversary month?


Honestly, I have no written plans. HAHA.

I think I'll just go with the flow on what my strength and fate can do. HAHAHA.

You see, school is my number one priority.

And with school, comes homework, fatigue, projects, activities, and all of that things.

So it takes up 80% of my time.

I haven't actually finished reading a single book since school started. (That's sad, isn't?)

I'm planning (or atleast thinking, LOL.) on posting reviews, guest posts, interviews, etc. this special month.

But who knows? (*crosses fingers for at least 5 decent posts this month. Lol)

So, I've decided to keep in touch with you guys through social media!

This month, I'll officially be using, #ReadingwithLuigi1stAnniversary hashtag on atleast all of my accounts to keep you guys updated on giveaways, recent thoughts, and all of that stuff that has to do with my Anniversary!

So, I'll be updating you guys! and You also can discuss it with me! Yeheyy!

  2. First of all, happy first anniversary of your blog!
    I've read the The Grisha trilogy and has it signed, although if I ever win any of this, I'd gladly accept them! If I get the Shadow and Bone copy, I'll give it to a friend who's been DYING to get one, he couldn't make it to the booksigning last time and he'd be really happy if he receive this!



    PS: I didn't know you're 13!

  23. Happy Blogoversary, Luigi! I stumbled upon your blog from a facebook group and I'm glad I did! It's always nice to see fellow Filipino book bloggers around :) I'm currently reading Love, Rosie by the way. Have you read it? What's your favorite "genre"? (*fingers crossed for YA* haha)

    Anyway, congratulations on your blogoversary again! I hope to see you around the blogosphere and get to know you more :) For now, I'ma snoop around your blog and read some reviews :D

    Cheers!

    1. Hi Ailla!

      Thank you, thank you very much! I'm very happy you found your way here. It's always nice to see fellow supportive bloggers! Unfortunately, I haven't read Love, Rosie but I'm looking forward to! My favorite genre is Young Adult. Specific wise, I'd say science-fiction and dystopian but I do explore the romance genre.

      Thank you very much! I do hope to see you around too!

      Cheers!

      P.S. Aww thank you! I'm also hoping to read your work one day! Let's exchange books? :)
