Happy belated blog birthday to me, and a link to the first post I wrote that I think is worth reading

I started blogging on the first of February, 2007....if you can call it blogging. Re-reading my early posts, I am not all that impressed. But as I relaxed and became more used to writing book reviews, things improved. And now I am addicted, and no longer am anxious about having enough readers (although I am rather addicted to having more readers, in a computer game addiction kind of way--every level beaten just leads to another level. Comments are gold pieces, and links back to my blog remind me of the mangos that one would occasionally receive in the 1980s computer game Doom--"My, that was a yummy mango," the computer would say).

Regardless of my personal issues, I looked back through my early posts to find the first review I wrote that I think is worth reading, so here, in honor of my four years of blogging, are my thoughts on Rules, by Cynthia Lord.

  5. Happy Blog Birthday!!! I'm so glad you started this "little" blog here. I've been intending to read Rules since the time you blogged about it and still haven't done it. Maybe I should get on that.

  9. Happy Birthday. I love your blog because you totally focus on fantasy, one of the few book blogger sites I've found that does so. Thanks.

  17. Happy Blogiversary! I don't like my reviews when I look back on them, either... I am in my 6th year now and I still don't know if my reviews are that great half the time...

  18. Now this comment becomes an extra belated blog birthday wish, but it's sincere! Happy Days!
