Today I wanted to take some time to write a quick thank you and acknowledgement of the one year anniversary of this blog. Technically I started it in mid-June of 2019, but I feel like I didn’t really get into it or start planning for what I wanted to center this blog around until July 2019. Nonetheless, I cannot believe it’s been almost a year of me posting daily and sharing my thoughts with the world on here.
Thank you so so so much to anyone viewing this, anyone who has viewed my other posts, and anyone who has taken the time to like one of my posts or comment something nice. It makes me smile to see that people enjoy reading my musings and like my poetry, and I hope that my posts can be helpful or entertaining to you all in some way.
It’s funny how although I still don’t have a definitive direction to take this blog in (it’s definitely more of a fun little side project), I have narrowed the focus of my posts so much throughout this past year. I originally wrote about so many things, but I’ve been consistently posting poetry/writing content and the occasional school post for the past couple months. I never thought I would be sharing my poetry on the Internet, let alone so frequently, but here I am! It’s been such a nice experience to know that my work is being seen and can resonate with others.
Thank you for sticking with me this past year if you’ve been here since the beginning, and thank you for coming along for the ride if you’ve joined anytime since. I appreciate each and every one of you! This blog is clearly so personal to me, and I never imagined that more than a couple people would really care about what I had to say.
Please know that I am always open to feedback, suggestions, and just having a conversation! I know I may have attracted readers from the various types of content I previously dabbled in, so just let me know if there’s something you’d like to see or a category of post I haven’t made in a while that you enjoyed. Although I write these posts just for fun, I still want to make sure that other people can enjoy what I’m putting out.
As a side note– I know times are really tough right now, physically, emotionally, financially– all of it. Reading blogs and books and the like is honestly such a nice escape from the news, other exhausting forms of media, and reality in general. I’m not just saying this because I want you to read my posts. I’m saying it because I know we all need to give ourselves some TLC right now, and reading can be super relaxing, enriching, and entertaining all in one. If you need some book recommendations, check out my recent post about the books I’ve read in spring. I will be making a similar post at the end of summer about all the books I read in the summer months.
Happy one year of this blog! Hopefully there are many more to come. Thank you all again 🙂 Stay safe and healthy out there.
