…And I am completely lost for words. O_O I… what… how?!
I thought my first year of blogging passed quickly, but holy crap, this second year flew by even faster. I am a bit lost for words, but I do need to say one thing, and that is — thank you.
I recently passed a couple milestones (2,000 followers on Twitter and 1,000 on Bloglovin) and I’m still feeling a bit “I SHOULD NEVER TWEET/POST AGAIN THERE ARE TOO MANY OF YOU”… O_O But while it’s true that those numbers boggle my mind and I sometimes wonder why you all stick around, it’s also a really good feeling to know that people are sticking around. ♥
I’ve been so lucky to have made some truly amazing friends during these past two years, and I’ve loved having TWBI as an outlet for all my bookish feels, for discussions, for ranting and raving — those things have made the past two years so wonderful, and so worth it. This community has its ups and downs, and I’ve been feeling some of those downs a bit more than usual lately, but I honestly don’t think I’ve ever been more committed to blogging than I am now, with two years behind me. I feel more confident, not only as a blogger but as a person, and I know I owe a lot of that to this community. And I’m so, so grateful.
I keep meeting more and more awesome people through blogging, and I just want you all to know: I truly value each and every one of you. Blog readers, commenters, twitter friends new and old, IRL bloggy friends, BFF’s — just, kindred spirits — I am so grateful for you all.
I wish I could think of a way to show my gratitude, other than inventing teleportation so I can hug all of you, so I guess I’m going to have to settle with giving away some stuff instead. ;)
So, without further ado… the reason anyone has read this far in the post… Haha, jk… no but really…
