I had actually been searching through my archives for some Halloween-type posts to post last week when it dawned on me that my 5 year blogiversary would be today. Time has FLOWN by and I can’t believe that I’ve been blogging for so long — and I can’t believe how much the blog has changed over time!
I remember starting to blog because I had a super bad memory and couldn’t remember anything I read, so I thought I would write reviews and hopefully that would help me remember. Well, my reviews were more like recaps (spoilers!), so it’s great to see how that’s changed throughout the years. They’ve gone from recaps to too formal to more like a friend talking to you about a book. There have been weeks where I’ve posted TONS of reviews, to months where I’ve posted few. There have been discussions, songs, guest posts, giveaways, lists, and so much more in between. I’ve been lucky to meet so many awesome bloggers and authors. Some, again, may have come and gone, but the experience means the world.
Lately, the blog has changed a bit and I can already see how it’s evolving with me. I’m no longer the person I was 5 years ago and that’s okay. I know by the time my 6 year anniversary comes I won’t be the same person then, either, and that’s okay, too.
All I can say is that I’m so happy and thankful for my readers! There have been some that have come and gone, and others who have stuck with me over the course of the last 3 years at least, and I appreciate ALL of you. It’s been an amazing blogging journey and I hope that I can do this for more years to come!
