I have been blogging for one year!
All I can say is: Wow. I never thought my blog would be where it is one year after creation. THANK YOU ALL so much! Seriously, my blog would be nothing without you guys and I love you all so much! I still get that warm, fuzzy, giddy feeling every time I get an e-mail saying “A new comment has been posted on BookNook.” There is no better feeling in the universe! I love my readers, my commenters, my subscribers, my lurkers, and the people who pop in once a blue moon.
Thank you for following BookNook! It’s amazing that I have a blog and I never feel like I’m just talking to myself; I actually feel like I’m talking to my readers every time I post and that is an incredible feeling.
A New Name
Following my post about changing blog names a few days ago, I decided to change the name of my blog. BookNook is now Nose Graze! I wanted something unique and memorable so that when people search for my blog to find it, they immediately find my name at the top and no others. I was tired of being one of 100 BookNooks!
I hope you guys like the new name! 🙂
Changing my name meant that I had to make a new Facebook page, so I hope you guys will all like me there! 🙂
Hopefully, all other methods of following will have transferred over, but if not, I hope you will follow me again! 🙂

The Faces of Nose Graze
I wish I was one of those people who took screenshots of all their blog layouts when they were active. Unfortunately… I’m not. But I did have the themes saved so I loaded them up onto my local installation of WordPress and tried to make them look like the real thing LOL! Other than the widgets, they are accurate. So enjoy looking at the many faces of Nose Graze over the last year!
And then there’s now…
With a new name, I have a brand new theme in the works! It’s almost done but I probably won’t put it up for a few more weeks so that people can have time to adjust to BookNook’s new name!
