It’s My Blogiversery! Let’s Celebrate!
Where has the time gone? I wrote my first blog post on April 25, 2012. Here we are two years later and so much as happened. I finally published my book, “Allergic to Life: My Battle for Survival, Courage, and Hope” (How amazing is that?), had a book launch party, and did a meet the author at a health food store. My list of followers continues to grow and I have met so many amazing authors, bloggers, and others who suffer from environmental or other chronic illness. I have joined a writing group, PnP Authors, and became Membership Director for Rave Reviews Book Club.
During the past two years I have made myself known on the social media scene despite my fears by:
- had website designed (kathryntreat.com)
- started an author page on Facebook
- joined LinkedIn
- set up boards on Pinterest
- started tweeting a Twitter
- started a second blog, Be My Guest, for authors (There will be a special gift for those that sign up to follow my new blog. The names of new followers will go into a hat and my husband will draw a winner).
- and yes even got myself on Tumblr
I have also had a wonderful book blog tour where I was hosted on 12 blogs over a period of a month.
In honor of my Blogiversery, I am having a giveaway. The winners will be determined through a Rafflecopter Giveaway. The giveaway starts now and will run through the 25th of May. There will be chances to enter more than once. To find out what and how many gifts (yes there is more than one since “it is my second blogiversary”) are available. I know my blogiversery doesn’t officially happen until next week but why wait to start the fun!

I have been debating about when to announce this WONDERFUL NEWS. As you all know I have ordered invitations and postcards to notify friends and family of the great news about the book’s release. My original thought was to wait until I mailed out the notices to announce this followed by the start of the book blog tour featuring TEN amazing blog hosts that I can’t wait to tell you about.
Today my intuition said just GO FOR IT! It is okay to announce the news now and still send out my wonderful invitations and postcards next week.
ALLERGIC TO LIFE:
MY BATTLE FOR SURVIVAL, COURAGE, AND HOPE
IS OFFICIALLY AVAILABLE
This weekend I will be setting things up for the autographed copies to be purchased from my website via Paypal for those in the US. (I received word that the books I ordered have been shipped and I should have them any day now.)
Here are the links for Amazon and Barnes and Noble. I will announce here on the blog as soon as the Paypal link has been set up.
The book blog tour starts Monday, September 30th, culminating on Friday, October 11th. More information on that will be coming soon. I will be giving away three autographed copies through Rafflecopter in conjunction with the tour.
I am also giving away three autographed copies through a goodreads promotion that starts next week and runs for a month (I will announce it the day it starts.)
I am over the moon with excitement. Today was going to be my day to finish the guest blog post and the interview questions for one of my hosts but I just couldn’t wait any longer to share this news! The notes for the blog post and the interview questions are still sitting here on my desk and will get done later today after my interview on slushheap. I will post a link to that this evening or tomorrow when I have it.
OKAY! I am off to eat some lunch and get my office clean from the webcam’s view at least. Thank you all for your wonderful support.
