Happy Blogoversary To Me!!


Wow! Can you believe this month celebrates three years of blogging at GreenBeanTeenQueen?? I can't believe I've been blogging that long! Of course when I first started blogging, I was very spotty in my posts and my reviews were pretty short. It took me about a year to really get the hang of it I feel like after two years I've finally found a good blog groove.

That's not to say it's all be flowers and cake and happiness all along! I love blogging, but at times it can be stressful and very, very hard! There are moments when I've wanted to quit, moments when I've stressed over what to post or read, and hated that my TBR pile is a never ending mountain of books. I love the blogging world, but at times it can be full of bitterness, jealously and backstabbing, which I really, really hate. But the blogging world is also full of wonderful people who connect and share over books, support each other and are some of the greatest people I've ever met! I also love the opportunities that blogging has brought me and the connections I've made. And I've read some amazing books I don't think I would have ever picked up otherwise and engaged in awesome conversations about YA and book and library world. So I guess I'll take the bad and the good because I really can't stop-blogging is too addicting!;)

Of course, it's not a true celebration without a party-and I'm giving you the presents!!! I have the best readers (I'm still amazed and shocked I even have readers, honestly!)

So I want to reward you for sticking with me and encouraging me to keep on blogging. Nothing is more exciting than getting books, right?

So to thank you, I will reward one lucky winner with $50 (US Dollars) to spend at BookDepository.com!!
-OPEN INTERNATIONALLY!! (well, at least to anywhere Book Depository ships!)
-Must be 13+ to enter
-One entry per person please-duplicates will be erased
-Contest ends April 1, midnight (CT)
Good luck-and THANK YOU for making me love blogging!!

  17. I am very happy I found your blog! Most book blogs feel like a networking site, not a place to give you honest opinion about the book. I really do feel I can trust your reviews, they are truthful but still respectful to authors. So thank you I do appreciate your hard work.

  25. Well, I came here to say congrats on your blogoversary, which is exciting enough, and then your awesomely generous giveaway made it even more exciting! =b

    So many, many congratulations... I was a lurker for a long time, I think, mostly before I started my own blog, but you were one of the first YA book blogs I became aware of. Thanks so much for your great reviews, and your dedication to the library profession. I look forward to reading many more posts! =)

  50. I found my way to the School Library Journal Curriculum Connections blog this afternoon. There I read a post by Liz Burns who writes A Chair, a Fireplae and a Tea Cozy. She asked for readers to nominate favorite YA book blogs. Green Bean Teen Queen received numerous nominations. Now I have visited your blog, and I can see why people like it. Congratulations on three years of blogging. How did you ever compile such a long list of blogs YOU read? (You wrote that you are addicted to blog reading!)
