300th Post with Upcoming Events and a Giveaway!

There are a lot of plans going on behind-the-scenes here at "Seasons of Humility," and I thought I would let my 300th post be a list of some of the upcoming events we have to look forward to in the near future!
  • Blogoversary! The end of March (March 30th, to be exact) is my first anniversary of the creation of this blog, and I've been contacting some wonderful authors to help me celebrate! I don't want to give too much away, but here's a hint of what's to come: themed weeks. Remember all those themed weeks we had this past year? Food week? Mystery week? Well, there will be little flashbacks to those days, some fabulous giveaways, and some great author interviews (including interviews with Julie Lessman, Leanna Ellis, and maybe more)! So mark your calendars for March 27th through April 2nd!
  • Mondays for the Military: I don't want to guarantee anything at this point, but I've just heard back from an author who is willing to do an interview for an upcoming Monday regarding her military books. I'm excited to maybe host her here, and I can't wait to share the interview with you--hopefully soon!
  • Courting Morrow Little Book Discussion: Nope, I haven't forgotten! I'm still hoping to host this book discussion soon, and I'm thinking maybe next week will work well. We'll see! I apologize for the delay.
  • The Borrowed Book: The third and final installment of my writing tips series is scheduled for this upcoming Monday, February 21st. As with my first two posts for this group blog, I'll plan on posting a link here, as well!
  • Book Reviews: Be on the lookout for my full review of The Rhythm of Secrets soon, as well as a review of Lady in the Mist. After that, there should be plenty more to come! I have quite the list of books to review. ;)
Thank you for sticking with me, and I look forward to many more posts in the coming year, if it is the Lord's will. I'm already anticipating "Camp Humility" and fun summer posts!

Anyway, since this is my 300th post, I thought I'd do a giveaway to celebrate! If you would like a chance to win a gently used copy of Stars Collide by Janice Thompson, just leave a comment with your e-mail address. (This giveaway is only open to those with a U.S. mailing address.) If you'd like to read my review of this fun book, click HERE.

YAY on 300 posts, isn't that just incrediable?? It blows your mind away when you hit a number like that. I always wanted to do a post like this to celebrate a certain number, but I have so many scheduled I lose track of which post is the right number!

I don't need to be entered, I already have this fun book.

Congrats Amber, can't wait until your blogoversary. :D

Yay for 300 posts, that's so awesome! I can't believe you're celebrating one year already, it just seems like yesterday I started reading your blog! I have a blogiversary coming up too but I have NO idea what to do. I did author interviews last year so I wanted to switch it up some...maybe I'll do blogger interviews! ;-)

XOXO~ Renee
p.s. please don't enter me I already have the book

Renee,

I know, isn't it strange? It doesn't seem like that long ago that you helped me start my blog and left me my first comment! :) But in another sense, it does seem like it's been a long time since then, too! Time is funny stuff... ;)

Your blogoversary was so much fun last year, and I remember it was one of the reasons I contacted you for help, because you had sent me an e-mail letting me know I was a winner (so I had your contact information). ;) I'm looking forward to what you end up putting together this year! I think blogger interviews would be fun! :)

Amber S. said...

Joy,

Amber S. said...

Sara,

It is crazy, but I've really enjoyed writing all these posts! ;) Thank you for your support, and I'm so glad you enjoy my reviews! That comment has helped give me an extra "oomph" to get some more reading and reviewing done! :)

Renee Ann said...

Wow! 300 posts, Amber! That's quite an accomplishment. You're a prolific, creative blogger. I'm looking forward to your special blogoversary week.

Amanda said...

Congratulations, my dear friend, on 300 posts!!! I'm so happy for you, girl! :D Your posts, and especially your friendship, have blessed me more than I could ever say :) Can't wait for all your upcoming events, especially your blogoversary AND the CML book discussion!! My friend finally gave me my copy back and I thought I should celebrate Morrow's return to my bookshelf by rereading her wonderful story! I started it last night and am now currently on page 248! What can I say, it's my favorite book ever ;)

Praying you have a beautiful day in Jesus, my friend!

Blessings,
Amanda

P.S.- Will be emailing you shortly :)

Amber S. said...

Renee Ann,

Aw, thank you! That's such a sweet compliment, especially since YOUR posts are so creative and meaningful! :)

Glad to hear you're looking forward to the Blogoversary week, too!

~Amber

Amber S. said...

Amanda,

Thank you!! And I feel the same way--words can't describe how much your friendship has meant to me. :)

I bet it feels good to have Morrow back. ;) Sounds like you wasted no time in diving right in again! Such an amazing book... :)

Hope you have a beautiful day, too, my friend!

~Amber

P.S. Your e-mails always make me so happy! :) I sent you one back!

You'll never guess the "veri" word
pupsepet - that's perfect for May, don't you think?! ha!

Amber S. said...

KC,

Thank you! :)

I love blogging--it's been such a blessing meeting so many wonderful people and writing about things that I love!

You keep up the great work, too, with your new book, promotion, etc.! And that "veri" word is definitely perfect for May. ;) So cute!
