I am totally STOKED! This coming Sunday is the Tour of Saints Bike Tour in St Joseph Minnesota. I havent signed up because I wasn’t sure if I could make time to go… I’ve went back and forth on it, then my cousin Jarrid called today and he said we are going. YEAH! Guess I just needed a little push.
I love this bike tour and this will probably be the last one I get in before the September 175 mile.
Here is last years Tour of Saints
Wow…. it really is hard to believe I have been doing this for two years. I remember when Mark was trying to convince me to do this… I was so nervous about putting my words out there…. I have always wanted to be a writer, and this was a great mini fix for me but I just didn’t want to share things about me. Looking back, I have no idea why….
Originally I wanted my blog to be private and I would only let friends, family, and my book club of course into the sharing of what was on my mind. It took a while to go public where it would show up on search engines but eventually I took that leap.
It was in March of 2008 that I added the book blog and that was public, but more for me to record my thoughts on what I was reading. It was kind of an afterthought, and as I finished a book I would blog my thoughts at One Persons Journey Through a World of Books. (If I only knew then, what I know now… that title would have been shorter!) This was really my way of getting away from the years of journaling my books in many three ring binders.
Then – even more recently, I found my way into a whole new world…. book blogs…. author sites…. publisher sites…. areas to sign up to review books before they come out to the public…. and I felt like… I had finally – finally, found my fit with this passion for books that I had since I was three.
So sum this all up – I am now able to share my book reviews with a much wider audience than I could have ever imagined. That little blog that started out with maybe a person or two reading it a week now continuously has over 200 visitors a day and growing. I love that I am able to share this passion!
So – in honor of this, my two year Blogoversary, be sure to stop by One Persons Journey Through a World of Books on Wednesday and sign up for the great giveaway that will take place on that day only.
Thank you to all of you who stop on by, for sharing in my life… nutty as it is at times… (and there are some nutty posts here…)
Here are some on my favorite moments over the past year…
