Today is Happy Indulgence’s 5th year, and I’m super proud about how far we’ve come since the very beginning! I would not still be blogging after such a long time without all of your support.
One of my favourite parts about blogging is definitely the people that I’ve met through our mutual love of books. I’m so happy to call you guys my friends and coming to blog at the end of a work day is like coming home after a long time away. Not everyone has a passion in life and it really keeps me going you know?
Our Celebration Video
Anyway, I’ve prepared something special for you today! Aila, Jenna and I jumped on Google Hangouts and answered a bunch of questions. It’s the first time we’ve done a video together (being in different countries and all) but we talk about what happens behind the scenes, funny co-blogger quirks, our favourite part about co-blogging together and some favourite book recommendations this year.
The video does contain some dodgy audio though, so sorry about that! Around the 15:43 min mark the video/audio does get clearer, thanks to Skype (boo Hangouts). You can watch the video here or below!
I hope you enjoy it! Please let us know what you think in the comments below, and subscribe to my channel if you haven’t already!
Aila and Jenna will be with you later on this week to share their blog celebration posts too 🙂
