Clare Dugmore Writes One Year Blogaversary

  Images from Vector Open Stock

One year ago today, I branched out from blogging only about my NaNoWriMo novels/ blogging around NaNo time, to blogging more frequently, discussing many aspects of my writing career, and taking part in blogfests/ hops; with my first foray into fests being Cassie Mae and Angie Cothran's I'm Hearing Voices! Character Blogfest. Cassie Mae and Angie, thanks for having me in your fest, and the kind and encouraging comments you left on my entry. 

At the same time, one of my very best friends, critique partner (though I didn't know the term for it then), and awesome author, Kyra Lennon started blogging about her writing journey too, and we entered our first blog fest together. I'm so honoured to have shared the first year of my writing journey with Kyra, and so proud to have watched her grow into this confident, successful self-published author. Kyra, congratulations on all you've achieved in the past twelve months, and thank you for the endless support you've given me. I love you.
Check out Kyra's blog for her own Blogaversary celebrations.

Over the past twelve months, I've met some amazing people and had some fantastic experiences. I thank each and every one of you for the support you've given me in the last year. Whether it's regular comments, or just one offs here and there, all of you have encouraged me in some way or taught me something new, and for that I'm very thankful.
 

In honour of my Blogaversary, I'm hosting a Rafflecopter giveaway below, to win a £15 (or equivalent in your currancy) Amazon voucher.
