Today marks the one year anniversary of Reflections of a Book Addict! On October 18, 2010 my journey into the book blogging world began with this post. (OMG don’t judge with how poorly it’s written – I’d like to think my writing has gotten better over the past year) Along the way I picked up my amazing staff bloggers: Todd, Adam, and Jess. The three of them have been fantastic and have added some really worthwhile content to the site. I’d like to announce today the addition of a fourth staff blogger, Charlie! (You can find out more about Charlie on the staff blogger page here). Charlie is going to be taking over the weekly film review, while Adam becomes our resident graphic novel expert. Todd and Jess will be posting more book reviews of their favorite genres, so keep your eyes peeled. And as always I’ll be continuing my journey towards 100 books. (As of today I’m up to 74!)
Lots of changes are going on with the blog! My good friend Ozzie Santana is designing and coding a whole new look for us. We’re going to unveil the new logo sometime today, but the rest of the stuff will come with time. I’m SO excited about the new look and can’t wait to share it all with you!!
