Book Blogger Love-a-Thon 2013: Mini Challenge # 5

Mini Challenge #5 
Our Top Blogging Moments

1. Starting this blog together!
We have been giving each other recommendations and discussing books since we met at UVA so starting this blog together has definitely been a top blogging memory! Ashley emailed Nicole and said "Hey, what are your thoughts on starting a blog?" A couple days later Nicole said, "Let's try!"

2. Winning our first ARC
Nicole was the first one to receive an ARC. When The Ruining came in the mail from Goodreads it was super exciting!

3. Getting our first follower and comment
Thanks Mel@The Daily Prophecy :)

4. Signing up for our first Blog Tour
Nicole's first book blog tour is going to be The Legacy of the Clockwork Key and Ashley's first book blog tour is going to be The Murmurings, although her first sign up was for Ever. Both of us are super excited to be reading these books and participating in these tours, any many more to come!

5. Our one month blogoversary :D
Hah so even though we plan to be here a lot longer, we are still pretty excited over what we accomplished in our first month of blogging, and now almost second! Even though it has been a lot of work, it has been well worth it. Being able to connect with all of you, share our thoughts on books, participate in memes, discussions, challenges etc. has enhanced our reading experience tenfold. We know it's only going to keep getting better and we can't wait for what's in store.

6. Our first email from an author
It was very exciting to receive an email from an author asking us to review her book!

Seriously. You guys are awesome.



  1. Welcome to blogging! It is a really great experiences and its so great that you have each other to share it with! I'm sure in a few months this list will be even longer!

  2. Wow, you guys have accomplished a lot in your first couple months of blogging - congrats! I'm off to check out some blogs you listed in your first post :D

  3. Like I said before, you two have so much to be proud for! Your blog is so much fun (I only wish I was like a pro my first month into blogging but it took about 6 before I even wrote a review). I love your list of awesome memories so far!

  4. Great list. Like Katelyn said, your blog is super fun and you really should be proud of yourselves!


  5. Such great memories in such a short time! And it will only get better! The first few months seemed to go by so slowly for me. I kept thinking I had been doing it for months and months when it had really only been like two. But now it's been a year and I feel like it has flown by. But isn't that how it always is? Great job so far, ladies, and I hope you continue blogging for years to come!

    1. Thanks! The first months seem to be flying by, I think because we are still working out the little bugs

  6. You have some great blogging memories already and I can imagine that you'll have many more as the months turn to years. I still remember reaching my two-month anniversary and being so over the moon. It really only feels like yesterday! I hope that you enjoy blogging ladies, it's nice to have you in the blogosphere!

    1. We are about to hit our two-month anniversary, it is quite exciting :)

  7. I'm still happy I found you guys! :D Already one month and look how far you already are! Keep on going ^^


  8. Hey girls. I am so sorry I did not stop by during the Love-A-Thon. Thanks for visiting my blog and shouting out my blog. I read your list above, and I felt so emotional. I mean, I remember my first couple months of blogging (I started in August '12), and sometimes I felt horrid. Thinking back now, I can recall these very moments that you listed. I really loved getting contact from an author. I almost toppled off my seat. I wanted to how the hell they found me! Blogging is so exciting, and I am glad it has been so enjoyable this far for you both.

    Christine @ Oh, Chrys!

    1. Haha, that is so true about toppling over... I wanted to know how they stumbled across our blog!

      Thanks for stopping by :)
