My First Birthday

I've been really looking forward to this. It's my one year blogiversary! I hardly ever stick with hobbies so this is pretty impressive to me. I've had a really great year doing this and I'm hoping to keep on going for many more. Now, to be honest, I was really looking forward to this post but I had no idea what to do for it. I've had so many ideas that kind of fell flat when I tried writing them, this is a big milestone and I want to make it a special post. It's a lot of pressure. But, I decided just to keep it simple and chatty.

So, I'd really like to thank those people who've made me feel ever so welcome and supported by reading my posts and leaving comments. I appreciate the support and try to return it as much as I can. I'm really glad to have some lovely people in the community who are supporting my blog. I hate to be someone who relies on reads and comment but it's really, really nice and reassuring to see reads and comments. So, thank you very much!

I started this blog during a tough time. I was struggling a lot in a difficult friendship situation and just felt down a lot. I wanted to have a bit of an outlet where I could talk about the things I liked because I didn't feel like I had a space to do that. I think it's been really great for me to have something that was completely and utterly mine. it gave me a sense of control and it was something my friends at the time couldn't touch. So, it truly does mean a lot to me. Even now that I'm in a better place, I'm still feeling the effects of a crappy friendship and this is a place for me to go. I'm very grateful for this space.

I think I've come a pretty long way from where I was. I've got my blog looking how I want it to look (somewhat, at least). I've found my voice. I'm racked up a pretty impressive archive. I've got a review archive that I'm obsessed with looking at. I've got so many more posts I'm looking forward to writing.

I'm just really thrilled with how it's going and I love that it's completely my own space. I can't wait until this time next year to reflect on how far I've come again. Again, thank you to everyone who reads my posts and leaves comments. It's been a wonderful year, I've enjoyed it thoroughly. I'm really looking forward to another year of it. Thanks for sticking by!
