I’m about to say all the same stuff that everyone says in all of their blogoversary posts but I don’t care because 3 whole years I’ve been blogging for (near enough) and where oh where has that time gone?
It’s been a weird and crazy 3 years, in both my personal and blogging life but as this is a blogoversary, I’m going to focus on that. There’s been a lot of changes since this time last year – some good, some bad but all of them an experience and a learning opportunity. Blogging can go in all sorts of different directions – as I’m sure most of you can agree.
The biggest change I’ve noticed over the last year is that I’ve now had the experience and opportunities to start working with brands and start making a small bit of income from certain posts. The brands I’ve worked with have all been, absolutely incredible and professional and it’s been so very rewarding to put yourself out there and connect with them. It’s been a privilege to review and test some of their products.
The book blogging side of my blog has dramatically decreased, which is a shame because book blogging is the reason I started my blog in the first place but I feel so much more free with what I can post and I very much fit into the ‘lifestyle’ blogging niche now – which I think I belong in much better!
Thank you all so much to all of my readers and followers over the past 1, 2 and 3 years. I love you all long time and want to say thank you with a heck load of giveaways below!

I’ve only just discovered your blog, my favourite posts (so far) are: https://jennyinneverland.com/2016/04/22/the-face-of-mental-illness/ and https://jennyinneverland.com/2016/02/12/8-things-not-to-say-to-someone-with-anxiety/ both of which really resonated with me
I don’t have any book themed jewelry
I have to be honest I don’t really think I have achieved anything in the lAst year. I enjoy your cooking posts. Especially the recent one on cauliflower as encouraged me to try it and liked it. As for a book club I think a book to get your teeth into and a debate. I think a lot of books by Amanda Prowse would be great for it. I’m tongue tied. I have lost the diamond out of my engagement ring. I don’t own any bookish jewellery but would love some. My favourite thing about Easter is spending time with my family

I’d buy books for the summer!
Well, the worst thing I have lost is my temper and composure on some occasions..
I have liked some books such as Passenger and Shelter this year but I feel my best read of 2016 is yet to come!!
I’d like to buy some new book releases with this $25
Happy Blogoversary! I’d spend the gift card on books – my wish list is soooo long. Thanks for the giveaway!
I would give the gift card to my daughter for her birthday 🙂
ooh, happy blogiversary! the best book ive read so far this year is first last kiss, it was beautiful, but heartbreaking! and if I won the Amazon voucher, I’d buy loads of books, my wish list is ginormous!
The best book I’ve read so far this year is either Sara Duguid’s Look at Me or Clare Mackintosh’s I Let You Go.
The worst thing I’ve ever lost is my marbles … and it continues to get worse!
I’m really looking forward to the longer days and maybe, if I’m lucky, some sunshine too this summer! Was not able to use the rafflecopter link to tweet about the Julia Roberts books as your tweet is one character over limit 🙁
My greatest achievement has been going back to university for my final year – it was a bit touch and go for a while.
I would spend my giftcard on some lovely new books of course, perhaps A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness, or the latest Katie Fforde.
The worst thing I’ve ever lost was my favourite dolphin necklace when I was about 6 years old. Honestly, I was so distraught!
The best book I’ve read so far this year is The Truth About The Harry Quebert Affair.
My favourite thing about Easter is the chocolate! Especially anything from Lindt 🙂
Happy Blogoversary, Jenny and thanks for this wonderful giveaway 🙂
