It’s a blogging anniversary…and again it’s not mine!

You know, I just realised something. My blog turns three years old next year (If I make to that date, which isn’t so sure anymore, but more on that later this week) on june the 6th to be exact. And I have never held a blogging anniversary. No idea why really. Maybe it’s because I just like being happy for other people more? Yeah I know: I’m weird that way. Today it’s time to celebrate again, as someone’s blog has turned one year old. Now a while back I promoted Irina’s blogging anniversary in this way as well, and by a strange coincidence the blogger that celebrates today is also from Canada. You would almost think that there is a certain trend going on here. Anyways, I am of course talking about the wonderful, amazing, funny and totally awesome Nicole aka the Bookworm Drinketh. I already prepared her that I was going to do something like this (because well I want to avoid physical and mental trauma, both on her side and mine). So….let’s get to the celebration already!!

Not that I won’t get punched in the face anyway.

Far Side Tuesday

One of the things that I really like about Nicole’s blog…or should I say about Nicole, is her sense of humor. Everything she writes pretty much always includes something that makes me laugh out loud. Her writing focusses primarily on books, but the reviews that she writes are not only very good (you hear that Nicole, they are VERY GOOD), but it’s the humor that adds that special ingredient to the cocktail. Another feature of her blog is the Far Side Friday cartoons that always announce the weekend and never fail to make me smile. So of course, I just had to include a couple of those in this post.

Celebrating The Bookworm Drinketh’s anniversay is best done with a Nicole cocktail (Just probably not this one…..)


Now, no post for Nicole would be complete without at least including a drink. If you aren’t following her yet (for the love of God why aren’t you yet???!!!) she always concludes a book review with a home made drink. So it goes without saying that I have to include one here right. Sorry this one is non alcoholic (But, I guess that is just what makes this one extra funny, seeing as Nicole just loves a good drink! 🍸)


  • One can of Cherry Coke
  • One straw
  • A few slices of Dutch Cheese
  • A pack of cheese crisps
  • A plate
  • A bowl

Directions (Like you need them for this)

  1. Open up the can (be careful not to cut into your fingers while doing this)
  2. Put the straw in the can
  3. Put the slices of cheese on a plate
  4. Open the bag of cheese crips (begin eating them) and put them in a bowl
  5. Put on your favorite tv show/movie
  6. Sit back in your favorite comfy chair, and start binging (both the show and the food/drink)

To close things of….

Okay, I was saying to close things of, not destroy things……

All good things must come to an end, but it would not be me if I wouldn’t at least go on one final speech as to why you should follow Nicole in the first place. You see Nicole is one of those persons that doesn’t like to be put in the spotlight, because she just wants to be there for other people. She always has a kind thing to say, works hard, and goes above and beyond the call of duty to promote books for writers that she loves. And she does this all for free. Best of all it once again proves that you can really gain some great friends from blogging. And you don’t always have to be living in the same country to establish some truly wonderful friendships. So let’s try and blow up Nicole’s blogging stats today. Go ahead and leave some likes, but especially some comments (she loves those) on her posts.  If you aren’t following her yet, just go ahead and press the link, and subscribe: You won’t be disappointed! Nicole: Happy Blogging Anniversary, and hopefully your blog will continue for a lot more years! Here’s to many more years of  friendship 🍻🍻

Yep: go and rush over to Nicole’s blog: like ASAP!

  1. Congrats to Nicole. I had to laugh at the drink/meal directions. Despite sucking at cooking, I think even I could make that coke, chips and cheese combo.

    One thing that did not make me laugh was the blog not lasting three years. Noooooo.

    1. Lol…yeah…I suck at cooking as well (honestly I wouldn’t even know how to cook lol 😂😂) And I’m not very decent with mixing drinks either seeing as I don’t really drink any alcohol 😊😊 So…I thought to just have a little bit of fun with it 😊
      As for the not lasting three years….nothing is set in stone yet, but there is a possibility that this might be my final year of blogging. A lot of changes are coming next year…in my personal life. Right now, I will be taking a step back as well…but more on that later this week. Thanks as always for your kind support though: it means a lot 😊

  2. I love Nicole 💖 She has such good content always whether it’s the book she reviewed or the booze recipe 😂
    Also good going on the drink and meal…. Dutch cheese 😂
    If anything we should send every blogger across the ocean some of our Dutch cheeses, they’ll never want anything else! 🧀

    1. Sorry to make you concerned Pete: really not my intention, but I have to say that I am touched by your concern: it means a lot.
      There is a chance this might be my final year of blogging. Nothing is set in stone yet, but a lot of changes are coming next year…and it might not be possible for me to maintain my blogging as I am doing now. I will be taking a step back for a bit too, but more on that later this week. Really do Pete, thanks for your kindness 😊 (As for checking the post, I did, but haven’t found something (yet).Did I miss something? 😅)
      Nicole really is great, and she definitely deserved this post 😊

  3. I’m thinking we could skip a step and just eat the cheese out of the packet as well, and maybe skip the straw, but I’m with you on celebrating Nicole’s blogiversary. Very sweet how you promote these… though you are making me worried that you are going to disappear sooner rather than later.

    1. Haha lol 😂😂😂 Yeah, maybe I should edit the post, and skip those two steps lol 😂😂 But on the other hand, I thought this would just be a bit more fun 😂
      Thanks for your concern: I really appreciate it😊 There is a chance, and I’m almost afraid to say it…that this might be my final year of blogging. There are a lot of changes coming up next year…and it might not be possible to maintain blogging like I’m doing now. I will be taking a step back right now as well, but more on that later. Whatever I decide though….I will stay in touch one way or the other…so no worries about that 😊 Really though…thanks…I mean it 😊

  4. Happy blogoversary to Nicole!!! 😀
    And three years already? That’s such an achievement! I know what you mean, I rarely celebrate it myself (I don’t even remember which day it was xD) but it’s always fun to celebrate each other 🙂
    Amazing post, as always! Loved these little things you like about Nicole and her blog, it’s just the sweetest ❤

    1. Thank you as always for another amazing and kind comment 😊 Lol…yeah…three years…well..not yet, but next year June…if I will make that final year that is. But more on that later this week.
      Nicole’s blog really is awesome, and she deserved this promo…so yeah, that’s why I wrote it. Glad you liked it, and thank you 😊

  5. Oh sweet!!! Party over at Nicole’s place – that rocks.
    This was an increadably sweet post Raist. I’m sure Nicole will absolutely adore it….but…i did notice that recipe was non alcoholic….
    Still refusing to accept the the little ominous part at the begining

    1. Lol…yeah…Honestly I don’t know a thing about alcoholic drinks, so I thought as a bit of a laugh I would make a recipe for a non alcoholic drink 😂
      But thanks Irina, for the kind words 😊
      As for the ominous part….yeah….I’m not willing to accept it either yet. And I haven’t decided anything for sure yet either, but however it will end up: I will remain in touch one way or the other. You can count on that 😊 Thanks as always for the kind words, and the support: I mean it when I say that it really means a lot to me 😊

    1. Haha yeah…maybe we will 😂😂 Three years is a long time, it certainly doesn’t feel like three years yet…😊

  6. Thanks for pinging this to my “24 Hr Challenge Fail” post! 😅
    This is so sweet!! 💖💖 I’m blown away by this. It’s just the nicest thing ever! (especially since I couldn’t really care less about it myself. 😉😂
    I’m so happy that we got to meet and become besties. If I had given up on this blog that would never have happened and that makes this whole year worth it!! Love you, darling! You absolutely the bestest, sweetest, nicest person I’ve ever met. 😙💖
    (P. S. cherry coke zero??… I don’t even know if we HAVE that in Canada! 😅😂)

    1. Lol…sorry for pinging it to that post 😅😅 Didn’t even notice that to be honest…😅😅
      If you wrote this comment to make me blush like a tomato, you have completely managed to achieve that…😳😳😳
      Well…don’t know even what to say to this…yep speechless for a change, now that doesn’t happen very often does it…😂😂
      Seriously though: like wise! And I know you will probably just say HM again…but well you know I totally mean what I say 😘❤️
      Lol…well…maybe I should sent you some Dutch chees and a cherry coke zero??🤔🤔🤔😂😂😂

      1. I feel like you say that you’re speechless every time I comment on something, so I think it happens more frequently than you think! 😂😂
        Oh, and I forgot to add that I’m offended that you told Irina you don’t know anything about booze! You’ve been reading my blog for how long?? You haven’t been studying up?…. Shameful. 😘😂😅🍻

      2. Haha….yeah 😅😅😅 Whoops…didn’t think about that lol 😂😂 Guess I have to hit the study books then lol 😂😂 (or more importantly read all the recipes for your booze and erm drink up? 😂😂)
        Naw…not every time speechless 😂😂😂 (only erm…a few times? 🤔🤔🤔)


  7. Such a sweet post 🙂 It always is a nice achievement hitting each of those blogging anniversaries. I do hope you find a way to continue blogging in some fashion (I did read your other comments, so I know you will elaborate later). I’m sure many of us would be happy if you even just posted sporadically. It doesn’t have to be all or nothing. But as always, do what’s best for you since that’s the most important 🙂

    1. Thanks so much! Nicole really deserved it: she really is a great blogger 😊 (Just like you😊)
      Well, there are a lot of things happening next year…as well as right now, and I’m pretty much struggling to keep up. So…I’m going to be taking a little bit of a step back for the moment. But more on that later this week. I really want to thank you for the very kind words, and the amazing support you have always shown me. It means the world to me, I mean that 😊


      1. Aww, you deserve all the support! You’ve been such a bright spot in the blogging world and always bring a smile to my face. And I know everyone will support you no matter what you decide 🙂
