OMG! I Missed My Blogoversary! (Five Years Old)

Posted January 2nd, 2017 in My Features / 30 comments

I am sooooo not on it, apparently. I can’t believe I missed my 5th Year Blogoversary! I feel so ashamed. Bad Bird Reads turned 5 at the end of September. Wow. Anna at Herding Cats and Burning Soup is celebrating her 5 years as well and that’s the only reason I remembered mine. LOL. So, yeah. There it is. Five years old.

I want to thank you all for the amazing years of laughing and crying together. We have shared so many stories together, both from books and real life. Every one of you mean so much to me. Your comments make me smile, make me feel useful, and give me the power to keep going. I’m happy that I got more personal on my blog because it feels good to share things and get feedback. Like free therapy!

I hope to have many more years together with you all and my blog. I’ve learned so much and I want to continue broadening my knowledge. I hope you all have enjoyed my ramblings. Here is to another 5 years!

As always, I like to share some blog states to see my progress through the years:

I’ve definitely slowed down on posting days but I think that’s to be expected. I usually post 3-4 times a week now compared to 7 days a week the first year of blogging. Life has gotten crazy (ergo forgetting my Blogoversary), and I have a lot of side projects I have to spend time on, so I have to balance blogging and life a little more now. But I think I will be blogging till the day I die. I love being a part of the blogging world and I would feel empty without you all in my life. 🙂
