    Happy Blog Birthday, Amy! Thanks for all you do to connect and encourage.

  2. Diane Chen says:

    Amy, I remember sitting near you at the first SLJ summit. I think we may have been the only ones with our computers out typing about the events. I have enjoyed your blog and how you constantly renew yourself with new topics. Thanks.

  3. Amy Bowllan says:

    Mitali, you have inspired and continue to inspire me in many, many ways. Thank you for your support.

    Diane, it seems like yesterday! And yes, I found it odd that the place wasn’t bustling with laptops. But a blog was born, following that day. YOU were one of my first ‘followers’ if I recall???

    Hi Amy, Happy Blog Day indeed for me! I can’t believe I didn’t know about this blog since I write multi-cultural children’s book. (My new novel, ABE IN ARMS, is about a Liberian refugee boy.) Sign me up!
    And congratulations!

  6. Amy – Much Congrats on five years.
