Happy 200 posts!

"200 posts?!  So what do you want?  A medal?"  Well... yes, actually!

Do you ever stop and look back at something you did a year ago and ask yourself "What was I thinking?"  Maybe your moment of "WIT" was an ill-timed encounter with an angry petting zoo goat, or perhaps a cannon-ball jump into an outdoor pool (air temp 87, water temp 62), or maybe you started a book blog.

I don't remember exactly how or why I started this blog aside from the fact that my previous personal blog had gone rather stale and my general thoughts on life were becoming split between public enough to share on Facebook or private enough to be kept in my personal journal.  And yet my reading and reviewing habits were ever-blossoming.  LibraryThing and GoodReads became great tools for cataloging my books and connecting with reading friends; but neither really served my desire to discuss the books I read and other bookish topics with people as voraciously excited about reading as myself!  And so began Her Book Self.

200 posts later, I'm a little amazed at what this endeavor has turned into!  I started simple wanting to focus on book reviews, author interviews, and bookish quotes.  And then I discovered some memes to join in, hot topics to discuss, challenges to try, and of course the joy of giveaways!  Yet this blog would be nothing without the precious comments left behind as small bits of validation that I'm not just talking to myself.  Thank you to those that have read my random ramblings and cared enough to tell me just how silly I am that you appreciate my thoughts!

Happy 200 Posts and here's to many, many more!

    What a wonderful milestone! Congratulations!

    I love blogging and every time I think about the impetus, that initial decision to start a blog, I am amazed that I ever went through with it, as it isn't like me at all - yet now it's been part of my life for coming up to two years.

    Thank you for being such a diligent blogger, Lisa. I enjoy reading what you have to say. Keep up the great work! (Or is "work" too strong of a word? Haha.)
