One Year Today

Today is the day. Today is the day that one year ago, I was sitting at this computer that I am sitting at now, it was late and I was incredibly bored, but I had a love for books, and I had nobody to share my thoughts about them with. So I created Reading Keeps You Sane. I thought I might share some stuff with you.

Firstly, how my blog title came to be. It's a little unusual, yes. It's not really a exciting story, but it's worth sharing at least. I hadn't really thought of getting a blog before the name came to be. On day, a few days before I believe, I was searching the internet for something, I'm not sure what, but I was, and I came across this picture of a dog, you know one of those dogs with the big eyes and nose or something that hallmark makes? This is the only picture I found:
I guess one picture I saw said something about insane or something on that order, and for some odd reason, I was like "Reading Keeps Me Sane" and then a few days later, I was creating a blog, and I was sitting there thinking up a name when I remembered the dog and the thing I thought of and I was like "Reading Keeps You Sane" and it does and Viola! Reading Keeps You Sane was born.

So there you have it. I just want to thank everybody for the fabulous year I had, and the hopefully years to come. To my 68 followers, and everybody that comments, and all the great friends I've made, and to all the awesome and creative authors I've gotten the chance to interview, and all the books I got to read. To everybody who has sent me free books to read. You have no idea how much of a joy ride I have had this past year. It's been fabulous and I can't wait until next year!

But if you have any questions about me that you want to aask, ask them below and I'll try to answer them on Staurday.

Thank you, thank you so very much. You have no idea what it means.
