Cue the streamers and party hats and confetti, because it’s my one year blogiversary! 😀
It’s pretty funny to say that, because making a blog was a total snap decision. I knew that starting a website was theoretically a good thing to do, since I was preparing to publish a first book, but really I think the main reason was because I just had a lot to say about everything I was reading! Reading a veritable shitton will do that to a girl. So on a lazy Sunday morning I did exactly zero research before signing up for a WordPress account and voila, here we are! Little did I know that it would bloom into this beautiful new mode of self expression, where I’d be serially releasing my first book, reading a new short story every week, getting the chance to read ARCs (I still can’t get over how cool that is), and keeping logs of my writing journey.
Even so, I still have that niggling feeling that I haven’t quite arrived yet. It’s a funny thing, to be both a blogger who does reviews and an author, and I’m still trying to feel out a good balance between the two of them so as not to step on any toes. Maybe a post on that a little later, when I have my thoughts straight.
Anyway, blogging is crazy fun, and I’m so grateful for the book blogging community. People here are so friendly, supportive, and thoughtful. It’s been mega-cool to look at my stats and see that people are visiting this little corner of the blog from such faraway places as Indonesia, Kenya, and Iraq. Basically, I’m feeling all the love right now, and I’m sure I’ll be here for years to come. Love you guys, and here’s to many more. ❤
