Hi sweet friends! I cannot tell you how happy I am to be able to celebrate this day with you!
Especially after last week!
It may seem like blogging is just a hobby or a way to spend your free time, but Austenesque Reviews has come to mean so much more to me – running this blog, interacting with readers who enjoy the same books as I do, and having the opportunity to work with authors contributes SOOOO much to my overall happiness. I don’t think it is something I could ever stop doing.
I’m so thankful for all the joy reading and blogging gives me. But I don’t think it would bring me anywhere near as much joy if it weren’t for the wonderful friends, authors, and readers who visit and discuss and share! ❤️
I cannot tell you how much I appreciate your visits to my blog and for being a part of my life! I sincerely thank you!
Nine years ago today (technically tomorrow) I created my first blog post. I’m so glad I did because this has been one amazing journey! And being a part of this community is just incredible!
To celebrate, I thought I’d get a little bit of feedback from you about what you’d like to see in the future on Austenesque Reviews.
So I made some polls!
This past year has been very busy with reviews and author features, that I haven’t had a lot of time to do other types of posts. But if I do have time in the future I’d love to know what type of posts is most desired!
I try my best to stay current and read the newest releases in the Austenesque genre, but there are some other books languishing in my TBR pile. And I’d love to know what type of books you’d like to see me review!
Thanks so much for letting me know what kind of content you’d like to see here in the future!!
