Wow. I have absolutely no words. I can't believe that I have been blogging for an antire year. This year has been filled with ups and downs but my blog is something that has remained constant in my life. I am so proud to say that I own this blog. I am so excited to see where it leads me in the future! I want to say how thankful I am for every like, comment, and follow I get. I created this blog last year on July 20th (2016) to share my love of books. For those of you who didn't know, I created this blog after getting inspiration from Katy in the Lux series. Now, not only am I able to do that, but I have also made some amazing friends in the book community. I have been thinking and thinking, trying to find something special to do for today. And, I couldn't think of anything. So, I am asking you guys! What should I do to celebrate my first blog anniversary? A giveaway? A special get to know me post? I would really appreciate it if you gave me some ideas!
It is hard to believe that exactly one year ago, I hit that publish button on my blog. Since then, I have learned a few things about blogging. The first thing is it takes a LOT of work. But, it is incredibly rewarding. I also learned that this community is filled with people that make become your next best friends. I have learned much more than that, but I don't want to make this post filled with too many words.
Before I started my blog I had no idea that bookstagram was even a thing. I started my bookstagram (@shoshireads) back in December and since then I have gained almost 500 followers! It never ceases to amaze me how friendly people are in this community. So, I am going to close out this post by saying thank you once more. Here's to the next years on my blog! :)
