Happy New Year
We were looking back over all the huge milestones we hit in 2020. This was our blog’s first year running, and our businesses as well.
So many things have happened and we are so thankful for all the help and support we have got, from our family, friends, teachers and random supporters, because this wouldn’t be possible without them.
That is why we are going to dedicate our blog post for the first time. This post is dedicated to every person who has helped us, especially our parents, who have driven us around, listened to our business plans and helped us to be as effective as possible.
Here we have a list of milestones hit in the unpredictable year that was 2020:
Our First Blog Post
Our first blog post was published on April 28th and was called welcome. Since then we have published 27 posts, gathering a total of 1441 views! Our post with the most views is Welcome, closely followed by Our favourite books.
The launch of our Business
Our business was officially launched on the 19th of June this year. We had been working on getting it ready for a few months, and we’re very proud when the launch was successful. We even mentioned it on the blog!
Our first Order
Our first order was on the 20th of June. We were ecstatic when we received this order, even if it was from our amazing Aunt and cousin. They bought 3 books and we had a lot of fun getting them ready to be shipped to Dublin.
We went on the radio
We went on the radio with Rian Tubridy on the 16th of October. It was such an amazing experience, and all thanks go to our amazing Auntie who set it up for us. Everything started happening fast after the interview, with a lot of work to be done!
We had our first deal!
At Halloween this year we ran our very first deal. We were selling special Halloween bags and we made a lot of money. This also means we had to do a lot of work, which was very hard considering it meant working for three hours most days and, to an eleven and thirteen-year-old, that’s a whole lot of time.
We have lots and lots of plans for 2021 and hope for a year that is just as fun as this one was for The Book Corner. We would love for this blog to be more interactive so if you have anything that you would like us to do in the new year, be it a blog post, a deal or something completely different.
We would take any ideas on board, but we don’t just take ideas. If you are looking for reading advice, trying to find your next favourite or have any other reading-related questions we would be more than happy to answer them.
