Vilma’s Book Blog Turns 2 Years Old!

VBB 2nd birthday w border

Today is my birthday and I feel a mixture of awe and gratitude and total shock. I can’t believe two years ago I decided to create a Facebook page and call it a book blog. I didn’t know a single author. Didn’t know any bloggers. Didn’t know what I needed to do. All I knew is that I loved books and I loved to write and maybe someone, probably only my best friend and my sister, would find some of my thoughts on books useful. So shock… yeah. Two years and twenty thousand Facebook likes, way more if you count blog views and subscribers, it’s just nutty and fabulous. I never would have imagined that the blog I created would morph into a vibrant, positive community of people I’ve grown to care for deeply. I’ve met so many new people. I’ve made lifelong friendships. I’ve had once-in-a-lifetime opportunities. And I’ve read more books than I can remember.

I’m incredibly grateful for these past two years.

So in the book community, we give things away to celebrate milestones, and this time, I’m celebrating both 2 years and 20,000 likes… so how about two Kindles and two $25 Amazon gift cards?! I’ve got a Kindle e-reader and a Kindle HD6 up for grabs. Two winners, each also wins a gift card so you can one-click away.

Thank you for the past two years. Thank you for your support and love. I hope to be posting again in a year, celebrating our time together.

THANK YOU

    Here’s a true book nerd story for you… I went to my first signing in Denton, TX in 2013 and my cousin and I were a little star struck being there. We realized we were behind you in lne when you introduced yourself to an author and we were totally whispering to one another how we couldn’t believe Vilma from Vilma’s Book Blog was right in front of us lol. We thought that was just as big of a deal as seeing the authors lol. Congrats on your anniversary and success and thanks for always providing great recommendations!

    I’m so glad that I found your blog courtesy of Jen Armentrout, woohoo! I so want to be you when I grow up. You really seem to be living life to its fullest all while being an avid romance reader. I didn’t realize that was possible until I started following your blog. Thanks for the inspiration and I hope you keep having fun with your blog! =)
