    • I’m currently working on a MG novel in verse.

    Happy Blogoversary! I love your blog and am so happy I found you to share all things bookish. Someday you will sign a book or two (more!) for me. Cheers to many more years of blogging!

    • If you want to know a secret, I prefer blogiversary too. It makes more sense to go with anniversary. But somehow when I went to go celebrate my first, I ended up seeing everyone spelling it the other way, and I figured that must be “how it’s spelled.” It wasn’t until much later that I saw some people spelling it with an i, and I was like, “Hey, why didn’t I do that?” By then I already had my birthday and blogoversary calendar and everything, and it would have been way too much work to change all my graphics, etc. So, blogoversary it is for me! 🙂

  2. Happy Blogoversary!! 7 years is amazing!! I can’t believe it’s been that long! Of course I say the same thing about myself! Sometimes I’m more like it’s only been that long? Lol! I feel like I’ve been blogging forever and it’s something I continue to enjoy by the day!

  3. Happy blogoversary, Nicole! ❤ I’m amazed (but not at all surprised) looking at everything you’ve accomplished in your 7 years of blogging! As a newer blogger I always love seeing older bloggers take stock of how they’ve grown and what they’ve accomplished. It always inspires me and makes me hopeful for all the things the future has in store!

    Congrats on 7 years!! You’ve always been one of my favorite bloggers, and people in general since I’ve gotten the chance to meet you in person! I hope that the next 7 years and beyond are just as amazing and successful for you!!!


  5. SEVEN YEARS that is wonderful, Nicole! Though I just about choked on my water when I saw that we have been hosting the Discussion Challenge for five! FIVE YEARS for real!?! And THEN I realized that I will be celebrating 7 years this year too because Sammy will be 7 in October and then I died and you are talking to a ghost. Where the heck does the time go!? WELL. You have done such an amazing job with your blog, I am SO proud of you!!

    And your writing continues to inspire me- I cannot believe you are doing a book in verse, that has to be one of the scariest things I can think of (well, for me hah) and I am like, beyond impressed and ALSO excited to read it and extra also excited for you to be famous ♥♥

    Happy blogoversary, Nicole, and here’s to many more to come!!

    • Your “extra excited for you to be famous” totally made me laugh—I’m sure fame and fortune is just around the corner for me! 🙂

      And, yes, seven years feels like a crazy long time—and then like not long enough as well? In some ways I feel like I’ve been blogging forever!!!

  6. Congrats on your 7th Blogoversary, Nicole! It’s neat to see your stats and how far you’ve come in seven years! Some neat things for me to learn were how many books you’v edited/proofread and how you’re working on your third novel right now.
