3 Year Blogiversary / GIVEAWAY!

It's hard to believe that it's been 3 years since I started my blog on July 7th, 2010 with no followers and two poorly written novels. Three years later and I have finished SEVEN novels, and have over 250 followers. Maybe not as much progressive for some, but this is more than enough for me. :) I had a goal of reaching 200 followers and I made it last year.

 So, it's time for a celebration!!  To show my appreciation for all of you - I am doing a GIVEAWAY!


$10 Amazon Giftcard

3 Chapter Critique (From me)

The Kissing Booth by Beth Reekles

if i stay by Gayle Forman

Yes, I possibly did clean out my bookshelf and I don't have a lot of money, but I wanted to share with my amazing followers! Both are great books and hey, you can buy 3 e-books from Amazon with $10. :) 

Also, I am sharing a few fun facts about myself that you may not know! :)

1. I am afraid of cotton balls. Yes, cotton balls. They make the awful sound then.... ah!
2. I once dated identical twins and I never messed up their names. No, I didn't date them at the same time. :)
3. My favorite superhero is Captain America. His morals, his character, his butt. :)
4. I'm a huge Trekkie fan.
5. Until I was eighteen, I was deathly afraid of roller-coasters and now I love them.
6. My favorite animal is a hippo.
7. I really, really like to write when it is raining.
8. I have a thing for guys with curly hair... I just wanna touch it. :)
9. My nickname as a kid was Kunta because my sister couldn't say my name.
10. I love singing in the shower, but only when no one else is home because I'm too shy.

Do we have any random facts in common?

I will pick 4 winners when the giveaway is over!!  Good luck to everyone!  And thanks for supporting me through these three years of blogging!


  1. Congratulations on three years, happy blogiversary!
    My favourite TV programme is, Strictly Come Dancing (Dancing with the Stars, in US) I eagerly await the series each autumn.

  2. Yay, three years is a long time! I'm at a year and a half (ish), and I still can't believe I've lasted this long.
    I don't watch much TV, really. I have a lot of series' I love; Buffy, Firefly, Scrubs, How I Met Your Mother, The Simpsons...I could go on forever, really!

  3. Totally love 'Despicable Me,' and I can't wait to see the new one! :) I'd have to say my favorite TV show is 'Burn Notice,' although I do love 'Big Bang Theory' and started 'Sherlock' (the British one), which I love love love.

    Congrats on your success and happy blogiversary!

  4. Three years! Good going :). Seven novels is quite impressive, too.

  5. Three years, seven novels, 250+ followers. That's a lot of success in a short period of time. Congrats!

    I am deathly afraid of roller coasters, always have been. heck, I woke up one morning, turned on the TV and a roller coaster in a commercial gave me motion sickness. I can sit through almost any horror film but aerial shots of someone hanging from a skyscraper freak me out! And yet despite this crazy fear of heights I've been up to the top of the Sears Tower and Empire State Building. (I guess I can handle heights or motion but not both!)

    Also I do like to sing in the shower now and then, but only when I'm sure that no one can hear me. I tend to talk/sing to myself randomly.

    My niece is a HUGE Captain America fan. She brought him to her senior prom (kinda- it was a cardboard replica :-)

  6. Congrats on the three years! ^_^

  7. Congrats on the 3 years, the many followers and the novels. What an accomplishment Krista. I just started following your blog this year but it has been so fun to read and "meet" you. :-)

  8. Congratulations on the blogoversary! That's funny about your nickname. :) My oldest, Elizabeth, gets called Heya by her younger sister and it is totally catching on! It drives me crazy. ;)
    My favorite TV show is . . .Do I have to pick one? Big Bang Theory, Modern Family. Park and Recreation are all favorites that are still going. :)

  9. Yay for you! Does "Downton Abbey" count as a tv show? It's just so much more...
    Always fun to stop by and you keep going Girl!

  10. Count me in. Speaking of giveaways, you should check out my blog. You won something. :)

  11. Congrats on 3 years girl! And on your many novels!

    1. Also I think my favorite television show would probably be a tie between Doctor Who and Supernatural!

  12. Congrats on your blogoversary—and on your books!

    I love writing when it rains, too. For some reason, I always feel more creative when the weather is gray.

    Have a happy Tuesday!
