These past two years have just blown by! It feels like it was just last week that I created a little purple, fairy tale themed blog. I had no idea it would grow the way it did. My blog might not be the biggest, most professional one on the web, but it fits me just right (:
One of the biggest highlights of my blogging career (ooh! That sounds so official!) was hosting The Fairy Tales Retold Challenge and participating in exciting events like Armchair BEA, Fairy Tale Fortnight, Utah Book Month, Bloggiesta, and more! And lets not even start on all those amazing read-a-thons!
My blog has gone through a handful of makeovers over the year, but being silly old me, I didn’t take any screenshots. Its most recent makeover involved changing up the backgrounds and fonts, and getting rid of something you didn’t even know was there!
You don’t understand how happy this makes me! I was crying with joy when I deleted it!
And now for those stats!
|LAST YEAR||THIS YEAR|
As you can see, my blog has grown substantially, and while it’s still considered small, I’m super happy with what I’ve got. I love each and every one of you amazing, dedicated followers! Speaking of which, here are some of my favorite bloggers who I’ve met in the past year!
- Mel @ The Daily Prophecy
- Inky @ Book Haven Extraordinaire
- Kate & Kristen @ The Book Monsters
- Annabelle @ Sparkles and Lightning
- Kami @ Kami’s Library Thoughts
- Lili @ Lili’s Reflections
- Eileen @ ***Singing and Reading in the Rain***
I might not be the best commenter, which I will apologize profusely for, but you guys are totally amazing at what you do, so keep doing it!
This coming year I have lots of plans! I’m going to keep being my silly fairy tale obsessed self, with my reading challenges and read-a-thons (keep your eyes peeled starting in July!) I’ll also be starting a new (currently unnamed) weekly feature to offer my blogging and design tips, since I’ve been getting lots of questions lately, plus I’m picking up new skills everyday that I’d love to share!
And now here’s the part where I’d offer a super-fantastic giveaway for all you loyal, devoted followers that I love, but my funds are incredibly low at the moment. I will be having one soon-ish, though!
