Now We Are Seven…

Today is the day where I get to eat lots of cake, have a small childish party at lunchtime and go on a book shopping spree because… Savidge Reads turns seven today! Happy Blog Birthday to me! It is a time when I get to feel like a/the queen with two birthdays sort of. I am sure the cards and presents are on the way! Weirdly I both cannot believe that I have been actually stuck at something this long (this blog has lasted longer than some of my previous relationships) and yet at the same time it seems like I have been doing this for sooooo much longer!


Maybe that is where the idea of the seven year itch comes from? You feel like you have ‘stuck at something’, you wonder if it has all gotten a bit samey and therefore you start looking around and assessing and wondering if maybe you need to change it all up, or give it all up and move onto something new. I know I have been going through all those feelings about blogging of late. Hopefully  I have come up with a plan that will see me ride it out though, which I will be sharing with you tomorrow. In the meantime let’s celebrate… Who fancies some of this amazing chocolate bar, but not actually a chocolate cake which you know I don’t like, cake then?

    Happy birthday to a brilliant blog!

  18. Congratulations on your seven year blog! Reading your blog in the last couple of years has influenced my very long lists of books requested at the tiny local library. The librarian and her supervisor have had to search far and wide across Canada for my books as a result of your blog inspiration. I think the supervisor is so impressed at the increase in number of books going through the teeny tiny village library that the head office has a new awareness of the little library ( one wall shelf for adult reading and a reading nook for kids) which is always beneficial. Keep up the excellent work!
