A Month of Giving Thanks ~Day 3
I have seen this done on Felicia @ Geeky Blogger blog and then I seen Berls and Michelle do it as well. As you can see Michelle gave me her button to use as I decided I wanted to do something this year.
Here is what you will see all month long on Books, Movies, Reviews. Oh my! I will be mentioning varies Bloggers, Authors, and Narrators on my blog. There could be more than one post a day as I think I came up with a list that went over 30 days. I also know that I can’t possibly mention every blogger, author or narrator I know all in thirty days so please don’t be upset if you didn’t get a mention cause if this goes over well and I find I liked doing it there is always next year. 🙂
I am thankful for other bloggers I have gotten to know because they really make it so much easier to continue blogging! Its a community and I love it! 🙂
Blogger Michelle Parsons:
Hi, I am Michelle, owner of Because Reading is better than real life. I started blogging in Feb 2013 just on a whim and have loved doing it ever since. I am also the co-host to 3 challenges, COYER, Reading Assignment Challenge and Bookish Resolutions.
I started reading when I was rather young. I enjoyed all types of books. My favorites where the Point Horror books and I would beg my mom to take me to the bookstore every weekend to get more. I had stopped reading hardcore for a while and when the Harry Potter books came out my love for reading blossomed again. It wasn’t until sometime in 2012 when I started really using Goodreads that I found my true passion for reading and then blogging. When I started my blog I had no idea what I was doing, I still cringe when I read those posts. I will say, it was/is one of the best things I ever thought of doing and I love it so much. It helped me build my confidence and boosted my self-esteem. At some point last year I decided to take my designing skills and start my own business, Limabean Design. I love designing and I love helping bloggers make things they will be proud to show off. I have been designing for 20 years, since right out of college. It is a passion of mine and I love everything artistic and creative.
When I am not blogging I am spending time with my amazing husband and my two little ones. My son is 11 and my daughter is 8. I passed on my gaming genes to them and we spend a lot of time playing video games and Minecraft together when I am not playing by myself. I am a true animal lover and have a house of pets: 1 dog – Dexter, 1 cat – Buttons, and 1 Hamster – Biscuit.
I have known Michelle for about 3 years now. Met her the same way I met Berls with signing up for the COYER challenge. After helping them out a bit with COYER they went and made me a co-host which is very exciting. We like to read a lot of the same types of books so I am always checking out her blog for new books to put on my list.
I got to met her in person for the first time in May at BEA in Chicago and it was just amazing how it seemed like we had just been friends forever and there were no weird awkward first meeting moments! It was such a great week and I miss her face so much!!! I am hoping to save up enough to visit her for BEA in New York since she lives nearby! Fingers crossed! 🙂
You should totally go check out her blog at Because Reading Is Better Than Real Life!
