My blog’s officially 3 years old! With that being said there are so many ways for us to celebrate our blogoversaries. Some of us choose to do a special type of post, often taking the form of a q&a, others do a lessons learned type of post…the possibilities are endless ok. Today’s imagine will be looking at the various forms a blogoversary can take, virtual cake may be involved friends.
These posts are some of my favourites to write, if you’ve never read one before then the main bulk of the post, is written in 2nd person. (you) So it makes it feel as if you’re actually experiencing what I’m writing, at least that’s the aim haha. For all these posts take a while to write, I love them.

It’s Your First Blogoversary! Let’s Do All The Things ^.^
You were sprawled out on your bed, it looked like a demon had escaped into your room, turning it upside down. Laptop out on its stand, which rested on the bed, you had scraps of paper scattered around you. Books were napping over you floor as you furiously typed away on your phone. It was your blogs birthday tomorrow.
You’d remembered 10 minutes ago and in true you style, you’d decided to all the things very last minute.
Sending the tweet asking for questions for the Q&A post you’d work on, you checked back on your instagram to find a few questions had already come in. Satisfied that you’d at least have some questions to answer, you opened up a blank post.
“It’s laughing at me.” you huffed shooting the empty post a glare, the cursor blinked in and out waiting for you to begin typing.
A voice said “Does this mean you’re not down for a movie night?”
Pushing your glasses back up your nose, you looked up at the door, where your partner stood eyeing you amused. Groaning you whined “It’s my blogs 1st birthday tomorrow and I want to do a few posts to celebrate it. But I only just remembered…”
“Can I help?” they asked stepping into the room, making their way to the bed carefully, avoiding stepping on the books. You smiled faintly as the bed dipped and their arms encircled your waist, pulling you into a hug. Relaxing into their embrace you hummed “Could you organise the books back please for me. After I type out this Blogging Lessons I’ve Learned post, I’ll start the draft for a Q&A post and then we can have movie night.”
Chuckling softly they pressed a kiss to your cheek “Sounds like a plan,”
The pair of you worked away quietly. They were one of the only people you let near your books, mostly because they organised them really nicely for you. The sounds of typing echoed in the room and the gentle shuffling of books being placed back on the shelves. A smile stretched across your face as you heard your partner start humming the melody to your favourite song.
Your Blog’s Turning 2…How Are The Tantrums?
Groaning as you stared at the laptop’s screen, you’d already written and scheduled your blogoversary post. Your blog was growing up so fast, it’ll be turning 2 tomorrow but you wanted to do something more than just a blog post. Sighing you got up from your desk and headed through to your kitchen, you’d been craving cupcakes all week and what better time to start baking cupcakes than for your blogoversary.
Collecting all the ingredients you’d need from around the kitchen, you began to measure everything out, swaying to the beat of the current song that came on the radio. Gradually you began to forget the stress of figuring out what else you could do for the blog, as you got lost in baking the perfect batch of cupcakes. Popping them into the oven, you whipped up some buttercream icing and added your favourite coloured food colouring.
Once the cupcakes were properly cooked, you took them out and let them cool, whilst you got out some other decorations for them. Icing the cupcakes carefully, you hummed placing some multi coloured sprinkles over a few, chocolate sprinkles over some others and then arranging them in the number 2, stuck candles in each of them.
Grabbing your phone from the counter, you took several photos of the cupcakes, before you headed off to grab your laptop and some books arranging them in a cute and aesthetic shot for your bookstagram. Thankfully your 2nd blogoversary went to plan, here’s to your 2 year old blog behaving well and not throwing any tantrums 😉
I Know Your Blog’s Only 3 But <error404> We Have No Ideas
“You’ve only been blogging 3 years though.” your friend said confused as you sat eating pizza.
Huffing you said “Yeah but I don’t know what to post to celebrate it?”
Your friend gave you a look, taking a big bite of their slice, whilst you sipped your drink. After a few minutes they said “Ok hear me out, what if you just did nothing? Who says you have to celebrate it every year with a blog post?”
“They’re like unspoken rules,” you groaned, “besides even if I didn’t do a post, I’d still want to do something to celebrate it.”
Your friend hummed grabbing another slice of pizza “What about a post dedicated to all the book bloggers who’ve helped you along the way?”
“That’d be a really long post.” you mused, the gears already clinking away in your head.
Your friend giggled “Tell me about them then whilst you work on the post, I’ll clean up.”
“Are you sure? You don’t have to.” you exclaimed looking at your friend, who beamed reaching over to poke your cheek “Of course I’m sure. I want to hear all about these blogging friends of yours. Plus if you’re talking about them to me, it can help you with what to write for this post dedicated to them.”
Grinning you got up and hugged them “Thank you, you’re the best!”
“Uh huh, just as long as you don’t forget it.” they teased laughing.
Hmm I’m not sure how well this turned out, that being said I do like the last section. Makes me wish I had more friends in my real life I could shriek to about all my wonderful blogging friends. If you’re a fellow book blogger, how long have you been blogging? Is your blogoversary coming up? How do you plan to celebrate your blogs birthday? Let me know in the comments!
