2011- A Year in Review and Looking Ahead to 2012
Happy New Year, everyone! I'm going to take today to go over all the coolness that was 2011 and talk a bit about what's going to happen in 2012.
Let's start with December because I have two things I need to wrap up from December. I participated in RAK hosted by the Book Soulmates and in the Bookworm Santa Swap. I had Ricki from Reading Challenged and I sent her Tithe by Holly Black from her wishlist. I received Paranormalcy from Veronica at Stories of My Life. This was a great experience and I hope to do it again next year. Thanks to the girls at The Magic Attic and Book Briefs who put this together. As for my December RAK: I received I Wanna Be Your Joey Ramone from Sarah and Supernaturally from Danielle. Thanks so very much girls!! I sent out First Drop of Crimson to Danielle. I love the RAK program from Book Soulmates!
Now for a quick recap of the year! I started the year with less than a hundred followers and sometime during the Christmas weekend, I was given the most awesome gift- I broke 1,000 followers! Thanks you guys for that! I started the year off barely knowing how to use Twitter and now I have 990 followers. WOW. That blows my mind. I started using Networked Blogs in January and now I'm up to 242 followers. I attended BEA and met some awesome bloggers and authors. I attended my first author signing. My Signed Books Collection has grown from 4 books to an entire 3 shelf book shelf. I participated in my first giveaways and my first blog tours. I even got to participate in Best I've Read 2011, which is a dream come true. I can not wait to see how 2012 goes!
I'll be continuing with the Teaser Tuesday meme. I'm going to have a Wednesday meme but I'm not sure if I will stick with WWW Wednesday or if I want to do Waiting on Wednesday or even Wordless Wednesday or if I'll mix it up. Any suggestions? I'm already signed up for my first blog tour of 2012 and I plan on attending BEA again. I hope you'll all stick with me because I've got big plans for Amethyst Daydreams as we go into 2012!
