My 2nd Blogiversary!!!

CELEBRATE GOOD TIMES COME ON'' Kool &The Gang - YouTube

Today’s post is totally unplanned… I just happened to log onto WordPress this morning only to receive a notification telling me that it’s been two whole years since I started this book blog!

…Making it my 2nd Blogiversary!

In those two years, I’ve gotten to participate in so many amazing things as a book blogger. Blog tours, ARC reads, book tags, read-a-thons, you name it! And along the way I’ve gained nearly 300 wonderful friends and followers, most of which have joined me on this incredible journey within the past six months! My blog has grown so much within the past year, and for that I am endlessly grateful. I believe I started out this year with around 75 followers (probably less, if I’m being honest), and I somehow ended up with nearly 300 followers by July. This massive amount of support has been shocking, but I couldn’t be more thankful for it.

I’m also proud of myself for the progress I’ve made this year as a blogger and reviewer. I’ve developed closer relationships with authors and publishers, which is something I NEVER thought I’d be able to do two years ago. I’ve become more familiar with WordPress, and have thus been able to make my blog look as presentable as possible. My content on both my blog and bookstagram has gotten so much better, and I’ve finally reached the point where I’m happy with the improvements I’ve made. And above all else, I’ve been able to use book blogging as an outlet to channel my feelings into, resulting in me developing a much more positive headspace both on and offline.

I’m so so grateful for the book blogging community and everything it’s done for me, and to everyone reading this: Thank you. You have no idea how much your support means to me. These past two years have been wild, but this journey has only just begun. ❀

Cheers to another amazing year of blogging! πŸ˜€

    Awwww – congratulations on reaching your second blog anniversary! WHOO HOO!!! *Throws an insane amount of confetti, brings cake*. You know, I honestly believe that the first one-two years of blogging is the hardest. You more you write the easier it gets and the more foot traffic you start to see. It’s all smooth sailing from here on out, my friend. Well, here’s hoping! Sending much love! πŸ’™

    Congratulations!!! (loving the impromptu post) It’s amazing to hear about your growth and progress! So happy to learn a little bit more about the journey that’s taken you here. As a writer I’ve really come to appreciate people who take the time to review books in a way I never did before, so just wanting to say thank you for the work that you do to help the publishing world go round!

    Sorry I’ve been a little MIA on a few posts–looks like I messed up my email alerts ::cries:: so you snuck in a few posts in without my awareness. Catching up a little this afternoon. so sorry in advanced for the comment spam πŸ˜‰
