200 followers and winner of giveaway | The Sweet Review

Hello all!

You must be wondering, who is this person who’s suddenly appeared in their inbox? I have finally sat down again after what seems like forever (just checked- it’s been over two months. Oops.) and it does feel weird. A lot can happen in two months and I’m really sorry I haven’t been posting within that time!

First off, I’ve reached 200 followers. What, just what?! The fact that 200 people pressed that button for some reason or other is amazing. It makes me feel good to know people care about what I post, so thank you. We’re just two off 200 WordPress followers which is insane as well!

Secondly, I completely forgot to let you know who won the giveaway I hosted a while ago for Flawed by Cecilia Ahern- I pulled one lucky blogger out of the hat and it turned out to be The Crazy Chic! Thank you for everyone who took part, it made it all the merrier! However, from now on giveaways will mostly be UK based, as it does cost quite a bit to send books around the world, despite how fun it is πŸ™‚

A lot of eventful things happened between May-September time also; for instance, I went away to Spain for a week with my trusty little book Lady Susan by Jane Austen. My english teacher gave it to me for doing a favour and I absolutely loved it! Guaranteed, it’s not an easy read, but for all Austen fans it’s definitely one to slip into your bag. I also stayed in Croatia for three weeks (the most gorgeous place- I recommend it strongly for a summer holiday with the family!). I took both my Kindle and a few books, and as a result, read a lot! I also vlogged quite a bit: if I have time, the footage may be turned into a YouTube video sometime soon!

That brings me onto an important point. I’m entering a very important year at school; the year of my GCSE’s. Of course, I will still try to blog, but sometimes I may have to take breaks, however sad that is. Juggling one GCSE with extra things going on was hard enough, but I’m taking 11 this year. As all my teachers have been saying since we got back, this is my year. This is it. Unfortunately, priorities have got to shift, so that may mean late posts. I will do my best though πŸ™‚

I think I covered about everything, but what about you? How was you summer? Do let me know in the comments!

Gosh – 150?! | The Sweet Review

BeFunky Design

Hi everyone! I hope you’re all having a great day πŸ™‚

So, a couple of days ago I realised I had 150 followers on WordPress! That’s insane! I now have 156 lovely people following my blog, and yes, I know only a small amount of that number read my posts, but you know what? That doesn’t matter. I’m happy because it shows how far this blog has come, and it’s another little milestone I’ve reached.

I’m very glad that I started this blog, nearly five years ago, because it’s become a huge part of my life that I would never take away for anything. I was thinking of thanking specific people but being forgetful me, I’ve decided not to. But instead, I just thought I’d say: THANK YOU! Thank you for reading my posts and making my day with your lovely comments, both on here AND on Instagram.

Speaking of Instagram, I’ve nearly reached 150 followers over there as well. I know a few people discovered me and my blog through my Instagram, so thank you to those people πŸ™‚ and vice versa, you may have discovered my Instagram through my blog. My Instagram is merely a backup of my blog, however I do spend a lot of time and effort into taking the photos. So do head on over thereΒ and have a little look!

Once again, thank you so much to all of you who have supported me these past five (nearly) years – here’s to many more!
