When I began blogging three years ago, I had absolutely no idea what I was doing. (To be honest, I still don't. I just kind of go with the flow and do my own thing.)



I have learned several things that are most awesome. I've seen things and experienced opportunities that I never would have imagined during the last three years. I've made friends that I otherwise would not and I've read more books than I can possibly count. 


Instead of me going on and on about what I've done (or haven't for that matter) I'm going to show you some of my favorite things and then we'll get to the goodies. 


Author events! 

The very first Author Event I attended was for Richelle Mead. I had no clue who she was and didn't own the 3 previous books in the series. 

From there I went on to attend several events. Eventually, I began to moderate and interview the authors.
