3 years ago today, on Sunday 21st July 2015, I wrote my first blog post. Let’s have a throwback!
“Hello Fellow Book Lovers!”
21st July 2015
This is the first post I ever published on my blog – then ‘BiblioMad’ – and I was so excited to jump right into the blogging community. For me, it’s so funny to look back on what I had to say on that very first day. Actually, it’s adorable. Here’s a small excerpt:
This is the beginning of a blog where words matter, are praised, and are preserved. Each day, more and more people put their books aside to watch the movie adaptation instead. With each generation, less and less children are encouraged to read.
But I think reading is the most important thing in the world.
Where would I be had I not picked up that Jacqueline Wilson book all those years ago?
The hobbie of reading is dying out quickly, and it’s my mission to save it. (Or at least persuade some people to pick up a book.)
Thus, welcome. This is the beginning of a story like no other.
Lovely sentiments, past Olivia! How cute was I?!
Reading this back today, I am frankly humbled. My motivations have remained the same throughout my time blogging: to share my love of reading and to encourage others to pick up a book. Though my reading tastes have changed somewhat, and though I sometimes haven’t blogged as much as I would like, this rationale has remained the same.
Calling my fellow book bloggers, let’s continue to spread our love for the written word!
Also, in celebration of my blogging birthday, I’ve given LibroLiv a little revamp. I was getting tired of ye olde daisy theme and my tagline was becoming a little juvenile, so I’ve changed a few things around. I hope you like it! This is my new logo:
I thought it was pretty cute!
I hope you all have a great day! I’ll be pulling some party poppers and eating some cake, don’t you worry!
I’m also hoping to have another giveaway soon, so stay tuned!
As always, thanks for reading!
