2 Year Blogiversary!

I can't believe that yesterday was my 2 year blogging anniversary. Honestly, I'm not one to stick it out with things, so I'm pretty impressed that I've not only maintained this hobby for this long, but gotten more and more into it as time progressed! I love being a blogger and am so happy I started this hobby.

I've learned a lot in these last two years. I've figured out my post style, and learned more about stats, keywords, and marketing. I even bought my first boosted Facebook post yesterday! I've definitely stepped up my Instagram game, and hope to continue to grow on that platform as well! I do want to get better about a blogging schedule, vs just throwing posts up when I feel like it. I also want to reevaluate how I rate books and get back to the stricter ratings I devised when I started...I've gotten a little slack and have probably been rating some things a little higher than I should be!

I've rebranded twice (so that's three blog names/URLs total!), but am finally very happy with what I've landed on! I've made 202 posts (including this one!) for an average of 101 posts a year, and according to Goodreads, I've read 210 books since Day 1 of my blog. 

It's hard for me to pick favorite posts, since I like all of them! I did write them, after all. But if I had to narrow it down, these would probably be three of my favorites:

This was great for evaluating my reading year thus far! I haven't done many tags, but enjoyed this one so much I really want to do more!

This was a hard post to write, but it was nice putting some things out there and sharing my experiences. I do lifestyle posts occasionally, and I think this one was a really important one. I'm glad I did it. 

This was my very first post! It's fun to look back on this and see that the style of my reviews hasn't really changed much!

I love seeing how my blog has grown in the last two years. I was recently selected as a Book of the Month YA Affiliate, which is super exciting! I've gotten to partner with a few companies, like Literary Book Gifts, to showcase products. I've worked with tons of wonderful publishers and met some amazing new blogging friends. 

I absolutely can't wait to see what the future holds for Books and Wildflowers, and I hope you all will continue to join me on this journey into books, lifestyle, and inspiration as I embark on year 3 as a blogger!
