Giveaway – 1 month blog anniversary YA book giveaway

Discussion – Why I no longer check my Stats page

I have been blogging, on and off, for many years. I started my first website when I was eleven years old, with the help of my father, who taught me the basics of HTML. I taught myself basic CSS and web design. I have started more websites and blogs than I can count. My first […]

2018 reading challenges
