Fourth Blogiversary + Giveaway

For whatever reason, this is the first year I have decided to celebrate Little Red's Reviews' Blogiversary. It is unbelievable that I began blogging four years ago. If you read my earliest reviews, which I advise you not to, they need editing. I am almost positive that most of them were never edited, I simply posted them. My more recent posts over the last two years have drastically increased in quality. I began adding more images, editing my posts, and adding more creative/diverse posts such as author interviews, blog tours, giveaways, etc. 

Before I get into the celebration, I want to thank every single person who has clicked on my blog's link. Whether you were intrigued by whatever I had to say or you accidentally clicked on one of my posts, I am truly grateful for all of you. Your support allowed me to be invited on a panel at the Celebrate the Book event this year and you have allowed me to receive ARCs and review many of my highly anticipated reads. You have no idea how much your support means to me, I wish I could hug every single one of you. Thank you for supporting Little Red's Reviews for the last few years or the last few days. In an attempt to thank all of you, I am giving away four signed bookplates from bestselling Young Adult and New Adult authors to four lucky winners. To enter, scroll down to the bottom of the page and enter the Rafflecopters. I wish you an amazing New Year and an amazing upcoming blogging year!

To celebrate Little Red's Reviews' fourth birthday, I decided that I wanted to list some of my goals for the upcoming blogging year.

  1. Add more creative/diverse content! I know I said that my last couple years of blogging have increased in quality because I have diversified my blog, but I have only added a few diverse posts. This coming year, I want to post more unique content. I am constantly posting reviews or promotions, but I am never posting anything else meaningful. I am proud of what I am posting, but I want to be even prouder that I am stepping outside of my comfort zone. If you have any recommendations of what I should post, please comment below!
  2. Post more on Instagram! While this is not necessarily a blogging goal, I want to post more bookish images on Instagram. Several people that I attend high school with follow me on my Instagram account, so I am nervous to post anything book- related because I feel as though I would get ridiculed. I need to get over my fear and post bookish images. Most of them know about my blog anyway, they would already have something to tease me about. An Instagram could not make it worse.
  3. Read more blog posts! I struggle to post regularly and read blog posts regularly. I follow numerous bloggers on Twitter and I occasionally read a post if the title is intriguing, but I am not active enough in the community. I want to befriend bloggers and read more bookish content, but I never allow myself the pleasure of doing so. If you have any blog recommendations or if you have a blog, comment them below, I would love to check them out! 
  4. Read more ARCs & review them! I have been fortunate enough to receive physical ARCs from several book events I attended and eARCs from a few publishing companies. Most of them simply pile up and take up space on my Kindle or bookshelves. Although I have cut back on the amount of books/ARCs I get at conventions and request, they simply sit around and gather dust. I need to push myself to either reading them or passing them onto someone who will read them. Books deserve to be read and loved, not stuck on a bottom shelf covered in dust.
