Hello my dear book obsessed friends! I have some exciting and some terrifying news to share with you all. In situations like these I find it best to just dive right on in.
First thing on the agenda: the exciting news:
You can now find The Bookish Daydreamer by going to www.thebookishdaydreamer.com!
That’s right, I finally bought my domain name! Woohoo! *throws confetti* You can still get to the blog by going the old route of typing in the blogspot.com part. You’ll just get redirected to the new URL, so no worries. I technically bought thebookishdaydreamer.com and am working on getting that to work so you don’t have to type in the “www” part.
After over a year of having this blog, I think it’s safe to say that I’m going to be here for awhile so I figured it was time to take the plunge and buy the domain. More and more book bloggers are sprouting up and I didn’t want someone new to come along and take that domain before I did.
Next on the agenda: the terrifying news:
I’m starting physical therapy school in just two weeks.
TWO weeks. I’m beyond freaked out. I haven’t been in school in a year and everyone tells me that PT school is tough. So yeah, I’m getting stressed big time. What I’m probably even more worried about is my blog. I don’t think I’m going to be able to post as much as I have in the past. I’m trying to get ahead of the blog right now so that I will have content to post a couple of times a week. That’s why you may have noticed that I’m not on here as much as I used to. I’m building up the pre-scheduled posts!
I think another thing I’m worried about is that you all are going to lose interest in my little corner of the blogosphere. If I’m not posting 5 days a week, will you guys quit coming or just slowly forget? I love my regular followers so much and I’d hate to lose touch with you all! I can already tell that this blog is going to be a great outlet for me when I’m getting stressed with school and even though I won’t be able to check up on your blogs everyday, I will do a mass catching up at least once a week. So if you get 10 email notifications saying that I’ve commented on your blog posts, my apologies! Just know that I still love you and your blog! 🙂
Last on the agenda: something for you!
I can’t just change my URL and throw the fact that I probably won’t be on here as much as I used to without something exciting for you guys, right? You can even call this a belated blogoversary giveaway. You read that header correctly! GiveawayS! There’s going to be, wait for it…..THREE. Two (2) US giveaways and one (1) for my international friends.
Let’s get this party started shall we?!
Giveaway #1: I am giving away a box FULL of YA ARCs. I’ve needed to clear out my shelves to make way for all the awesome Spring/Summer books I’m getting and buying so the old ARCs that I’ve read or bought finished copies of have got to go! Want to know what you may be getting in this box? For every 150 entries I’ll reveal a book in the box on this blog post! 🙂 This giveaway is US ONLY.

Giveaway #2: I’ve gotten a bunch of unsolicited MG ARCs from publishers that I’m just not going to read. The ones that captured my attention and sound like something of the upper MG realm I’m going to keep. But the ARCs that are more early/younger MG need to go to a home where they will be read and deserve all the attention. So if you are an MG fan or have a child who loves MG, this giveaway is for you. This is once again a mystery box. If you do not read Middle Grade or do not have a child or family member who does, DO NOT ENTER THIS GIVEAWAY. I want these books to be read and cherished and given the full attention they deserve. Please be kind and save this giveaway for someone who will actually read them. Please. US ONLY.
