Giveaway & Celebration: 1 Year of Happy Co-Blogging

October 24, 2016 by Jeann @ Happy Indulgence | Co-Blogging, Features, Giveaways

coblogger-anniversary

Today is a special day! It’s been 1 year since Aila and Jenna has joined Happy Indulgence! I can’t believe it’s been a year already, that flew by really fast.

JeannI don’t know about you, but I think having both of them on the blog has been a burst of fresh air! I love Jenna’s in-depth reviews and her love for contemporary has added so many new books onto my shelf. Aila’s just a sparkling ball of sunlight and I love her sass and coverage of brand new released books! I’ve discovered so many great new books through Aila’s reviews before I’ve even heard of them. I’m so excited that I’ve gotten to hang out with Jenna a few times this year while visiting Sydney and in a few days she’ll be visiting me in Brisbane #happycloudfeels!

Aila*covers face* Guilty! I’m a super impatient reader so I’m always reading the latest books I can get my hands on haha. 😛 I can’t believe it’s been a year – I feel like it’s flown by so quick! It’s been so great blogging with Jeann and Jenna, especially with how they’ve broadened my OZYA book list. We cover such an eclectic range of books, I feel like I’m discovering another gem – or book to be missed – every week. Talking to them is also the brightest part of my day. They’re always there to fangirl with me about the latest heartbreaking release or keep me motivated with life in general! Bliss would be the perfect word to cover it, indeed.

JennaI totally agree with Jeann. Aila has put so many fantasy books on my radar. Most of the time, I haven’t even heard of the books that she’s read but it’s great to hear her talk about them anyway because I always end up picking them up when I see them at the store. Blogging on Happy Indulgence has developed my blogging and reviewing process so much. It’s made me more organised and it’s been fun interacting with lots of bloggers outside of the WordPress community that my own blog is part of. I also love working and chatting with Jeann and Aila so much. They inspire me to be better, especially when Aila schedules book reviews months and months ahead of time (errr… I’m still putting up reviews the night before haha).

    Awww you all make me wish I was part of a co-blogging team 🙂 Congratulations on you co-blogging-versary!

  2. Regina Foo

    Congratulations on the 1 year of co-blogging! I've been thinking about co-blogging opportunities with other book bloggers but I know it's not easy with individual work/study and life schedules. I love what you gals doing and appreciate the effort you put in the bookish community. Keep up the good work and I'm looking forward to see your 2nd anniversary post. 🙂

  3. Thank you so much Reg! It has been a great year and I'm looking forward to seeing what's in store for next year.

    I think co-blogging is an interesng and fun idea. No doubt you are able to meet many awesome people and have a fantastic experience with them! It is an admirable thing, really. By the way, thanks for this opportunity! I've been wanting to dive into My Lady Jane for some time already!

    • Yes, it has been! I have had the best time with these girls and look forward to many co-blogging years to come <3

  5. Awww congratulations, ladies!! That is so awesome, a whole year together! I keep thinking how great it would be to have a co-blogger, but I also think I would be an annoying person to blog with? I am like… wholly unorganized, and yet somehow still a control freak, so how would that work for actual humans? But I still toy with the idea! I am so glad it has worked so well for you all! Hoping for many more years of co-blogging happiness to come 😀
    My recent post Pick My Halloween Read!

    • Lol, I got to a point where it was getting too difficult doing it on my own so it was definitely the right decision for me at the time. I definitely don\’t think I\’d be able to keep up with my blogging if it wasn\’t for Jenna and Aila! I\’m pretty organised as well and we have our set days so we\’re used to the routine now. Other than that I\’m pretty casual with other stuff 😛 I hope

  6. AWW YOU GUYS. This is so cute. Jeann, I love that you found amazing cobloggers this time around, because it seems like all three of you are having an awesome time! SO CONGRATS ON THE ONE YEAR CO-BLOGOVERSARY! Time flies doesn't it?

    Congratulations on one year of coblogging to my favourite trio in the business! It's been so wonderful to watch your friendship blossom over the course of this year, and I could not think of cobloggers with more amazing chemistry 😀 I hope you'll all get a chance to meet one another by the end of the next year (and come meet me as well, OK!) I love you all so much, here's to many more years of blogging and happiness together!!

    • Awwww thank you An, it\’s been amazing chatting to them everyday and having fun catchups and everything! I definitely hope I\’ll get to meet Aila one day too.

  8. <3 <3 <3 You guys are literally coblogging goals and I love all three of you so much. It's been fantastic seeing Happy Indulgence expand and grow throughout the past year and I can't wait to see what the three of you are planning next!

    • Thank you Joy, while it\’s definitely been an interesting year outside of blogging, it\’s been a great one experiencing it together!

  9. Cali W.

    Thanks for the giveaway and happy anniversary; I always thought co-blogging was good because you get different opinions for books. 🙂

    • Thank you Cali! That\’s the best thing, I get to expand my reading horizons because of what they recommend 🙂

  10. I am so glad to hear your co-blogging experience has been a wonderful one! i didn't realize it's been a year already since you got your new co-bloggers. I do like seeing everyone's reviews and posts and it's fun to see what different books everyone reads. And that's neat you actually got to meet one of your co-bloggers in real life!
    My recent post Review: Pets in Space

    • I know, I can\’t believe it\’s been a year already, time flies when you\’re having fun! Yes, I hope to meet Aila too some day in the near future 🙂 even though we all live so far away, it\’s great to meet every now and then!

  11. Congratulations on the one year of co-blogging, this is so awesome, and you guys look all soo pretty in your pictures 🙂 It's awesome to see how blogging together made you discover each other, really, and obviously add so many books to your TBR, ahah. I'm always thrilled to read all of your blog posts, no matter who it's from, and you complete each other perfectly on this little corner of the internet. To many more years of co blogging! 🙂 And thank you so much for this giveaway! <3

    • Awww thanks Marie, that is so lovely of you! That\’s my favourite part about blogging, meeting like minded people and having friendships which extend beyond blogging. But obviously sharing that common passion as well helps! <3
