HAPPY BLOGIVERSARY TO ME! πŸŽ‰Β  I can’t believe that Reader Voracious opened its doors here on WordPress one year ago today (after talking into the void on Blogger for a couple of months). It’s been an incredible year for me and the blog, and I really owe it to all of you. Whether you found my blog recently or have been around since the beginning, it is because of you that this has been such a rewarding experience for me.

Thank You — Giveaways!

I’ve been honestly blessed with so many friendships, conversations, and new ideas as a result of interacting with other bloggers over the last year. What better way to thank everyone for a fantastic year than a giveaway?! I’ve been squirreling away swag and funds to host both an international and US-only giveaway… wahoo!

Book & Merch International Prize (INTL Only)

That’s right friends, I have a special international prize package just for you! I know that you miss out on a lot of opportunities and giveaways due to shipping costs, so it was important to me to put something together for you to enter.

One lucky international follower will win:

  1. Any book of their choice, up to $20 USD (as long as Book Depository ships to you).
  2. Any bookish item of their choice, up to Β£10, from Jenniely’s Etsy shop, Literary Galaxy.

To enter this international giveaway, simply be following my blog and be sure to fill out the Rafflecopter giveaway before 23:59 on March 10! Bonus entries are available for following me on twitter and tweeting about the giveaway.Β  May the odds be ever in your favor!

Please be 18 or older or have your parent’s permission to enter as the winner will need to provide me with their mailing address. To enter I will need to collect your email address so I can reach out to the winner; I will not use it for any other purpose.

Bookish Swag Giveaway (US Only)

I’ve talked a bit about how much I want to love book boxes but almost never wind up using any of the items that come along inside of them. So when I say that I’ve been collecting pre-order incentives and the items from a couple of OwlCrates that I impulse bought for about six months, I mean it!

One lucky US follower (sorry but shipping is a nightmare and I want to keep my excess funds for sending out ARCs via Flapping Pages) will receive a box with:

  1. Vengeful pre-order tote bag
  2. A Victor black out poetry inspired notebook
  3. Two candles inspired by Victor and Eli
  4. A pair of Vengeful inspired socks
  5. Vicious pillowcase
  6. Deck of Caraval inspired playing cards
  7. Sticker for The Waking Forest
  8. Victor and Eli art print
  9. Keychain
  10. Pin
  11. Soap
  12. Character cards for The Gilded Wolves
  13. Harry Potter inspired beanie

To enter this swag giveaway, simply be following my blog and be sure to fill out the Rafflecopter giveaway before 23:59 on March 10! Bonus entries are available for following me on twitter and tweeting about the giveaway.Β  May the odds be ever in your favor!

Please be 18 or older or have your parent’s permission to enter as the winner will need to provide me with their mailing address. To enter I will need to collect your email address so I can reach out to the winner; I will not use it for any other purpose.


In my six month introspective I talked about my statistics and most popular posts, which I am glad I did because it is fun to look back and see how my blog’s grown over the last six months. I’ve been working on a huge statistics transparency post for the past few months, inspired by Vicky Who Reads’ post last year, that will be posted on the 13th.

Thanks again to everyone who follows or even just reads my posts, it means the world to me! Running my blog and getting to know so many of you over the last years has truly been an amazing experience, and I am forever grateful for my platform.

Here’s to another amazing year!

    Congrats on 1 year!! That is awesome <3

    My biggest blogging tip is to just enjoy yourself and write what you want! If you feel you have to write in a certain style or certain types of posts it will become a chore, and blogging is supposed to be fun!

    1. Kaleena @ Reader Voracious

      March 7, 2019 at 12:12 PM

      Thank you so much, and I totally agree with you on your tip! I think that is why I am still happy and not burned out — I just do what I want and try to keep it fun.

    Congratulations on your first year of blogging, Kaleena!

    You’re honestly like blogging royalty to me so it amazes me that you’re only on your first year. Seriously, you’re better at this than I am, and I admire your mission to provide helpful guides and resources to other bloggers, as well as to boost the voices of the marginalized. The work you’ve done (and continue to do) is amazing.

    Here’s to another year of blogging, stressing over blogging, but also meeting some of the best people through blogging!

    1. Kaleena @ Reader Voracious

      March 7, 2019 at 12:20 PM

      Thank you so much, Shealea! πŸ’–

      You are too kind though, I am so incredibly flattered by your words. I love your blog a ton and look up to YOU very much! I love how outspoken you are about diversity and representation, and I learn a lot about being a better ally and advocate through being your friend. Thanks for being one of the many reasons this year has been incredible!

    HAPPY BLOGIVERSARY KAL. THANK YOU FOR BLESSING MY LIFE WITH YOUR PRESENCE BY STUMBLING UPON THE NEW BLOGGERS DISCORD. Talking into the void is a mood – I felt like I was kind of doing that on Blogger (plus a few other issues, so there’s that).

    Here’s to many more years! I hope we’ll both be around to talk more about books, blogging and all the things. (Including the ever so adorable and precious Devi.)

    1. Kaleena @ Reader Voracious

      March 7, 2019 at 12:38 PM

      πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’– THANK YOU SO MUCH, SOPH! I honestly am forever thankful for Blogoween and Clo’s call for hosts on Twitter… my life has changed so much since then and it’s been for the better!

You have made such a name and place for yourself in this community so fast and I am so, SO proud of you.

This year has been really rewarding for me personally and has made a big difference in my life as I struggle with IRL stuff because it gives me a creative and productive outlet to focus my attention on. I am so lucky to have you as a friend and I am looking forward to many more awesome years! YOU ARE STUCK WITH ME πŸ’–

    Congratulations and well done on reaching your one year anniversary for your blog! It’s clear to me that you put time, effort and love into your blog because it shows with the quality of your content and also how engaged you are with your interactions!

    I’m totally taking notes on how you’ve run this giveaway by the way πŸ˜‰

    I’m also really looking forward to your statistic transparency post on the 13th, I’ve noticed a lot of bloggers being open about this recently and I’m finding it interesting reading.

      Thank you SO MUCH for this lovely comment, Gerry! 😭 It makes me really happy to know that my passion for this blog & community shines through!

      Do your giveaway this way, it was SO EASY!

      I am REALLY NERVOUS about this post, but it is almost completely finished now and it’ll be out in the world (for better or worse) soon. I really do like that more are being open about it, and I think increased transparency is important.

        I’m sure you have nothing to worry about with the post! In fact I think it’s great that people are sharing this information and being transparent. I’m tempted to share as well because my statistics are statistically not great but I’m having fun hence why I do it!

          March 14, 2019 at 1:22 PM

          I think so long as we are having fun that is all that matters, honestly THAT is my biggest measure of success! My post went live a couple of hours ago, and I would love to see you sharing as well. I do think it’s important we talk about it.
