4 Years + 1 Month: A Blogoversary sorta?

February 3, 2016

Hey ya’ll! Happy February, I hope this month is kind to you.
Today I’m excited to let you know that as of the 3rd of January 2016, A Sunny Spot turned four years old! Now you may be looking at your calendars and thinking “WTF Sunny that was a month ago”, and you’d be absolutely correct. However, it occurred to me that on the first day of my 4th year as a blogger, I was unable to celebrate it with you guys due to being away and a heap of other issues I won’t bore you with.

Anyhow, I feel like it would be such a shame to let this occasion pass without word so I’ve decided to celebrate this tiny but cool milestone with a 4 years and one month blogoversary giveaway. Your blog only turns four once, haha! Unfortunately my giveaway is for Australians only, but have no fear international readers because I’m working on someday hosting a giveaway that you guys can enter as well. It’s a goal of mine.

Before I leave you guys to enter away, I wanted to thank some people. Firstly, I’d like to direct a massive massive thank you to Bloomsbury and Allen and Unwin Australia for providing the wonderful books I’m giving away today. It wouldn’t have been possible without you so thank you x10. Secondly, I want to thank to the awesome book loving community in Australia. That includes authors, publishers and fellow bloggers, ones I’ve had the pleasure of meeting and ones I have not.

We really are an awesome group and I can’t thank you enough for not yet ruling me out every time I pull one of my infamous disappearing acts! Thank you! Especially thank you to the Sydney bloggers who I’ve seen throughout the past few years at various events, who still wave to me and have a chat, even if I’m being awkward and can only stay for a short period of time. Also Francoise, I don’t think I really need to tell you this but.. you’re my home girl, thank you for all your support.

Lastly, despite being bias to the wonderful Australian community, how could I not thank all of the bloggers and readers who comment on my posts and chat with me, from other countries? I've got to interact with some ridiculously cool and lovely people because of this blog and I appreciate you all! Fi, even though we almost talk about everything except for blogging (unless we're discussing our internal guilt), we met through blogging and I'm so glad we did. Ambivalently Yours, we also got to meet online and I've really appreciate all of our thoughtful conversations and all thats come of them.

PS. Also because I really just gotta, thank you Mom because at the end of the day this blog wouldn’t have been in creation without you, and nor would I.

I hope you guys enjoy this giveaway, there’s a tone of great books up for grab! May the odds be ever in your favour.
