To be quite honest, the combination of my blog being just shy of a year and my introvert tendencies means I haven't really gotten any "real-life" things out of my blog. That is to say, invitations to special events, other reviewing opportunities, etc. Don't take that to mean I've gotten nothing at all out of my blog, though. Nosiree, I promise I've gotten plenty :]
I never really knew about author signings or things like that so my blog introduced me to a whole new level of bookish love. Since I moved up to Seattle I've gotten the chance to attend a few signings which I'm really thankful for. I got to meet Cat Patrick and Kimberly Derting and this Saturday I'll get to attend the Fierce Reads Seattle tour stop.
Which reminds me...
Another major thing I've gleaned through blogging is more confidence in myself. Being able to put my thoughts and feelings out there and have people come and read them because they actually want to just blows my mind. In a good way, of course.

So, that's my poorly worded thanks to my blog and all it's given me. What kind of opportunities has your blog provided you? Or, if you're not a blogger, has your love of books gotten you anywhere?
