Blogiversary Celebration #3: Things I Look Forward To In The Next Four Years of Blogging


This week is Maureen’s Books 4 year Blogiversary and I’m super excited to share some fun stuff with you this week. Keep on checking out this week’s posts.. There will be a cool Blogiversary giveaway this weekend.


Things I Look Forward To In The Next Four Years of Blogging 


These last four years definitely flew by. I remember the day I started blogging so clearly. I had been thinking of starting my own book blog for a long time. But as with everything in my life, I needed some time to get the courage to actually do it. And when I finally did it I was super scared and anxious and really thought no one would be reading my blog. But soon my first review request appeared in my email and before I knew it I had several new books to read. 

And now I have to turn down review request. I definitely could not have imagined that four years ago. Although life has definitely got a little more busy the last view months, and I struggle at times with balancing everything, I can’t imagine not having my book blog. And for the upcoming months and years I still have so many things to look forward too.

For one I hope to be able to review some children books. In August our baby will be born, and I can’t wait to start reading to and with the baby and maybe even write some reviews about those books. It definitely would be a lot of fun.  

I also hope to get my own business Maureen’s Book Promotions, off the ground a little more. Working full-time and starting that new business is a lot of work and I find it hard to do it all the way I want to. But maybe I’ll manage to do more when I won’t work as much anymore with the baby. We’ll see. 

But what I look forward to the most is continuing to interact with my fellow book bloggers, getting the opportunity to read new and beautiful books and sharing my opinions here with you guys. Book Blogging definitely still gives me a lot to look forward too.  

And since this week is all about looking back and celebrating four years of Maureen’s Books.. Let me share my first post I ever put online with you.. And no.. it's not pretty. But we all had to start somewhere right?! I for one am that my posts got a little better over the years. LOL!


What are you looking forward to, blogging wise?
