Six Year Blogging Anniversary​ – Party and Six-Prize Giveaway!

Yo. Folks. Today is the DAY! Today is the six-year anniversary of when I first started my blog. Pretty epic, right? That, of course, calls for a celebration, and boy did I celebrate!

Not only did I put together a fun giveaway for you folks, I also documented the “behind the scenes” on my Instagram Storyand I made a vlog where I share my story of how I started blogging, and proceed to make fun of myself in hashtags throughout the video.

If y’all ever wanted to see what I’m really like when I’m excited, this video is a pretty good glimpse of what my family and friends live with every day. It’s very unscripted, unpolished (hence the hashtags), and quite random.

Enjoy, and thank you for helping me celebrate!

      That sounds about right. The way comments make their rounds is pretty cool. 😉 I’ve met a lot of cool bloggers that way – both with them coming to my blog, and me going to theirs.

    Wow, congratulations on achieving this milestone, Lydia!!! I’ve been reading your blog for about 3 or so years, but I can’t for the life of me remember where I found you… But I’m sure glad I did! 🙂

      I know it’s been a while! It’s been fun having you around and getting to know you a bit. I’m glad you found Noveltea, too! 🙂

      I don’t remember for sure, either. I do know that we were friends back in May, because I remember a specific comment you posted then. 🙂 And aww, thank you! I had a lot of fun being more my crazy self instead of my calm self in that vlog. 🙂

    Oh, my.. I’ve been following your blog for a good several years? Ever since beta reading If Life Hands You Lymes for sure…. I think I found out about you through Clever Bunnies blog or maybe Kendra’s blog? I really don’t remember….. ;0

      Oh yes, you’ve been around for a while. I remember when I used to read Clever Bunnies a lot, so it makes sense that we would have “met” from that blog. I also used to comment on Kendra’s blog some, too, so maybe it was there. 🙂 Thanks for hanging out on here, and thanks for having beta read!

    Congrats on your six-year Mark! 🙂 I don’t know, I think it’s been five years since I have been reading your blog. I have really enjoyed getting to know you through it. And through my sister-in-law‘s. 🙂 😉

      Whoa! I hadn’t realized it had been THAT long! I’m glad you read it, and I’ve enjoyed getting to talk with you about your writing. #Inspiring And through your sister-in-law’s? I think that’s where about half the people who read Noveltea came from. 😉

    I have been following your blog for less than six months, but that doesn’t mean I like it any less the blogs I’ve been following for more time! Then again, I haven’t been following writing-based blogs for very long–I guess around two years–so maybe I shouldn’t beat myself up about it. 😉 Plus, I believe I first heard about your blog through meeting you on Goodreads, and I believe I joined in July 2016.

    Suffice it to say, I’m glad to read your blog and watch your videos. You definitely make me want to make a blog, or at least an author website. Maybe you could do some tips or something like that sometime?

      Oh yes! Meeting you and other lovely bloggers on Goodreads was pretty amazing. It makes me want to spend some more time hanging out there so I can get to know even more great readers and writers! 🙂
      Aww, thanks! If you ever do start a blog, please leave your link in a comment so I can check it out! And yes, I’m currently doing a series about blogging, etc… If you have any questions I’d be delighted to try and answer them. (You can leave them here or email me at: aidylewoh@gmail.com)

        Same here! I know there are more nice authors to meet, but I could always spend more time off the Internet and more on more … productive matters. 😀

        I definitely will! Yes, I’m reading those posts; they’re very interesting! (And I like the graphics) Thanks for the offer–I don’t have any questions right now, but would you like to participate in my bracket game on CBS Sports for the NCAA men’s basketball tournament? The selection show (when you can fill out your bracket) is tomorrow, and the basketball games begin on Wednesday, I think, so there’s not much time, but you can still participate! You need a CBS Sports account, but I think it would be fun. 🙂 I’ll send you an invite, and you can accept if you’d like.

          Aww, thank you for the offer. I didn’t get time to look into it on time, but it sounds like something that’s cool for you to be a part of. I’m really not into sports, but I do think it’s neat how there’s such a huge community of sports people around. Thank you again for the offer!

            That’s okay; I understand that you’re not interested in sports, although sometimes I can’t imagine it. 😉 I’m seeing that female authors and sports don’t mix that much. 😛 There may be many sports fans in the world, but I haven’t met any on Goodreads yet. I won’t give up, though! 😀
            (Oh, and I was wrong. The games begin Tuesday, but one can fill out a bracket until Thursday at noon.)

              Haha! I had never made that connection before, but I guess it fits. Maybe most of us female authors just have our brains too full of books to fit in sports. 😉 I’m sure there are some out there though!

    Woohoo! 6 years is quite an accomplishment!

    I feel like I’ve been following your blog for a long time… I remember that it was before you had released Cave Secrets of the Pterodactyl… so… somewhere right before that. 🙂

      Oh yes! You’ve been following the blog for a REALLY long time. 🙂 Before WordPress and all. That makes me happy. Thank you for sticking around that long – you’ve basically watched me grow up. #wowzers
