It is one year to the day that I sat down at my computer in France and posted on my blog for the first time. I had been umming and arring and generally procrastinating about it for ages but finally did it and pressed “post” on my review of George Eliot’s novella The Lifted Veil. How glad I am that I did. Since then, we have travelled about a bit and moved back to London. I have written half a book and gone back to work. I have read and posted reviews of 52 books together with ramblings about my travels and images that take my fancy. I have found other blogs which I love and read everyday. The thoughts of other bloggers and of people who read my blog have come into my life and become a rich part of it. I have even had the great pleasure to meet other bloggers. In short this blog, other blogs and their authors and readers have become a constant in my life and a source of inspiration and joy. So, basically, thank you.
Now for the celebration bit: I have a brand spanking new copy of Daphne Du Maurier’s My Cousin Rachel (read and reviewed by moi back in November) to give away to a lucky reader in celebration of a year of happy blogging. If you would like a chance to win just leave a comment and I will find a hat and draw a name from it. This is a blog without borders and this contest is open to all.
