Blogger's Summer Reading {Lakeside Diaries GIVEAWAY}

Special treat for this super summer hot Monday!!! Here in Northern California, we've had record-breaking heat all across the valley, with temps of 106 degrees. Five different cities, one temperature, five brand new records set for the day. Check out my instagram post with a screenshot of the records shown on TV. This giveaway was supposed to be posted a bit earlier in the day, but my kiddos opted for a swimming pool afternoon. (You can imagine why!)



And for this awesomely cool treat...I will introduce my good bloggy friend Holly! Holly is one of the first bloggers that I connected with when I started blogging and my family joined the Etsy community. She had an awesome blog and a really cool Etsy shop too. She loves messing around with her blog layout and design (and she's great at it). She shares tidbits of life and a love for nature and books. Her new blog just launched, and she's celebrating with a Blogger's Summer Reading Giveaway. Two great books that are great for any blogger!

Hi! I’m Holly and you can find me at The Lakeside Diaries where I write about my daily life. To celebrate my new site, I’m sponsoring a giveaway on one of my favorite blogs, 2justByou!



Although Lakeside Diaries is relatively new, I’ve been blogging on and off for over 10 years now! It all began on livejournal, way back in the day, where I posted teen-angst ridden posts about high school. As I got older I found myself trying out different platforms like Tumblr, Blogger, and WordPress. I’ve always loved documenting my life, and being able to look back on the things I’ve experienced. It motivates me to write more and share my thoughts, and gives me a great outlet to share creative projects. Blogging also connects you to so many people across the world. It gives you a chance to make friends and learn about different walks of life. Although the landscape of blogging has changed a lot since I began, I still love it and can’t get enough! 


Connect with Holly:

For this giveaway, I’m offering two great books about blogging: Blog Inc. and Born To Blog



If you want to learn more about blogging, these books are for you! You can learn about designing a site, attracting a fan base, and using your blog as a business.

Giveaway is open to US residents, and ends Wednesday, June 25th, at 11:59 pm, EST.

I, too, started on livejournal as a teen. It's funny to go back and read those posts.

I read "Blog Inc" and it was very helpful especially because I've only been blogging for one year. I wish I would have read it before I started blogging. "Born to Blog" sounds like an interesting read, hopefully I'll win!
