HAPPY BIRTHDAY EILEEN!
This is a special blog post. It's not about a book, but rather, a blogger. A super awesome blogger who's birthday happens to be TODAY. Eileen, of Singing and Reading in the Rain, turns 14. It's an awesome milestone, and seriously, if you don't know this girl: WHAT ROCK HAVE YOU BEEN LIVING UNDER? Here just just 10 reasons why I love Eileen, and why she deserves to have the most awesomest, bombdigity birthday ever!
#1 I think the first thing I noticed about Eileen was her colorful layout. I remember last year, thinking: this girl is wild. And bubbly. In a good way, of course. The layout matched her personality, and I didn't hesitate to start following her blog.
#2 Then I discovered that Eileen is probably one of the youngest bloggers out there, and was doubly impressed. This girl is freakin' dedicated, and that's more than I can say for other girls her age.
#3 We have very similar tastes in books! Like anyone, we may have our differences, but I definitely trust her opinion and take it to heart.
#4 She's so much fun to talk to on Twitter! Seriously. Just tweet at her, and you'll see.
#5 She's SINGS.
#6 ASIANS FTW.
#7 She loves spreading her love of books by sending out surprise packages (and she writes super awesome little notes to go with the package)!
#8 Eileen's not afraid to be honest about her opinion of a book, which is admirable in so many ways.
#9 Just an inside joke: FISHY SPERM
#10 I remember just how awesome it was to reach out and find a blogger friend. She was one of the first bloggers I REALLY chatted with. And she's been so supportive and entertaining. I can't tell you how many times that she's made me smile. So I guess that's my tenth reason why Eileen is so awesome: she makes me smile.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, EILEEN! You go, girl! Keep on being awesome. ;) You deserve to have the BEST. BIRTHDAY. EVER.
