Blogiversary Celebration, Day 1: A Year in Review

Posted by Jessi (Geo) on October 22, 2012 | 22 Comments

Tomorrow marks ONE WHOLE YEAR for Auntie Spinelli Reads! I can’t believe it!! The time has gone by so fast, and it has really been a fantastic year. I’m so glad I stumbled on the world of book blogging, and I look forward to many more years of it (hopefully!). I have met so many wonderful people and had so many great opportunities!
So ASR has gone through a lot of design changes. What can I say? I get bored easily >.<

  1. Happy Blogoversary. (Totally a word!) I haven’t even hit my 6 month mark. I hope when I get to where you are, I’ll have accomplished as much. Good for you! And I like the changes. I haven’t changed my blog much, but I’m someone that changes my hair color a lot and has to write with a different colored pen each day. Trust me I get it! Thanks for the giveaway! :D

  4. e.

    I really like how you recapped all of the awesome things you have done, read, and reviewed on your blog — especially the pie chart! So cooL!

  5. I should’ve done this with the firsts for my blogoversary! Lol. I loved reading your first post.
    oh, and thank you for the giveaway!

  6. Happy Blogoversary! I just read your first post with a comment (on emotional books). There were some good ones in there. The Hunger Games definitely bring out some strong emotions for me every time I read them. I tend to be more of a crier when I read, though.

    Congrats again and thanks for the giveaway!

  7. Happy Blogoversary! I love your post, it looks like it took a lot of work! And I do love your latest blog design. I’d love to do some more updating on mine, just don’t know how to, or don’t have the money to pay someone right now.

  8. Happy 1 Year Blogoversary! Such an epic milestone! I enjoyed seeing the various blog designs you’ve had and all the books you’ve reviewed (wow!). I hope the coming year is even better for you!

  9. I am in love with your mini books, showing what you’ve read this past year! It would make one awesome desktop wallpaper :D

    Congrats on the blogoversary!

  10. Wow, that is a lot of reviews – no wonder the page took so long to load! I loved seeing how the blog has changed over time, that was a really cool feature I haven’t seen anywhere else.

    Congrats on the blogoversary!

  11. Congrats on your 1 year Blogversary!! I wish you many more! :D That is a lot different blog designs and I liked all of them but this new has to the best yet!

  12. Congratulations! I think it’s crazy how many reviews you’re able to do. Crazy in a good way obviously. This is a really cool retrospective on the past year.
