So… hi. I’ve officially been blogging for two years.
It feels so weird to be saying that?? Like one year was HUGE to me, and somehow, two is even larger? I mean, obviously, because two years is longer than one, but it feels like I took a big leap from my first to second year of blogging and I just feel so in awe that I’m still here.
I think this year with blogging has been the most impactful on me. Yes, there’s only one other year to compare it to, and yes, there could be so many more impactful years of blogging, but I feel like my first year was me flying, and my second was just falling.
I just. have a lot of thoughts about this day. It makes me happy, it makes me nostalgic, and it makes me bittersweet. Because this last year of blogging, while amazing, has been horrible, yet also exciting, and just makes me feel… a bunch of emotions.
But!!! I’m going to keep the negativity for the end of this post (it couldn’t be helped I’m sorry) and be more positive!!! Because I am so proud of myself for making it this far and I just want to CELEBRATE my achievements!!!! I love you all so much!!!!!!

Whaddup I’m May I’m the Mango Queen and I never learned how to stop obsessing over surveys.
Also known as “I have no idea what to post anymore so I’m going to do something random”. And also “I’m watching too many vines and I have to channel it into something somewhere”.
But today, I’ve decided to share the results (including GRAPHS!!) of my feedback survey, and also respond to things!!! I love snarikly replying to people and I also love graphs and I love thinking that I’m not doing any work when I actually am, so I really had a GREAT time creating this.
Thank you to every single person who filled out my feedback survey for my blogiversary, it really really helps and I appreciate it so much!!! I got super excited whenever I saw just one (1) new entry?? I’m pathetic. (Also if you didn’t get to fill it out, you can still do it HERE!!)
Also doing this meant that I didn’t have to write an ACTUAL post hallelujah. (Even though this turned out to be longer than my average post sfjdl;afkjas.)

Welcome to Part 2 of “WHAT IS WITH YOUR OBSESSION WITH MANGOES.”
Okay, so maybe it’s not exactly that, but it really seems like it since all of you just HAVE TO ASK about mangoes. (But it’s okay, it’s actually what I’ve brainwashed everyone to do so it’s understandable.)
After I posted PART 1 of the Q&A, I got even more questions?? So this post ended up being longer than expected, but whatever!! We all know you love reading me ramble excessively about myself. And mangoes.
I had a lot of fun answering the questions to all of these, and thank you again to everyone who sent in one question or three!! Hopefully I answered your question(s) satisfactorily.
(I probably didn’t.)

Apparently everyone is very inquisitive about me???
To be fair, I DID kind of shove all of you to submit a some questions. But in total, you all probably asked around… oh wait, sorry, I forgot for a second there that I was too lazy to count how many questions there were.*
But you asked a lot of questions (because I forced you to), and today I’ll be answering them!! What a surprise.
Of course, I’m really kind and will be sparing your eyes from reading TOO many words, and the Q&A will be split into two parts. Which means, if you still want, you can still submit a few questions, since there’ll be a Part 2!! Or you could like, not. And miss all your chances to ask me whatever you wanted.
*Just kidding, it was 50.

Can you believe that I’ve been blogging for ONE YEAR???
I definitely can’t. Some days I feel like I’ve been blogging for soooo much loooonger (you probably have all felt this, thinking, “AGAIN” each time you see a new post from me), and then other times I feel like I’ve been blogging for such a short time that it can’t even possibly be one year yet??
But I’m in AWE that I’ve made it this far. I honestly wasn’t that doubtful I’d make it to a year because I fell in love with blogging as soon as I started, but it means SO much to have made it as far as I have??? I did NOT EXPECT THIS.
And I don’t sound like it, but I’m EXTREMELY EXTREMELY excited about today!!! So excited that I can’t even express it my excitement! Or maybe that’s me being at a loss of words like I always seem to be.
In “celebration” of 1. YEAR. OF. BLOGGING. I’ll be listing a few things that happened to me because of blogging this past year, and then talking about my new design (HAVE YOU NOTICED YET), giving a few shoutouts, and some other things!
I would’ve hosted a giveaway but I’m literally broke. So. NEXT YEAR. I PROMISE. MAYBE.
(Also the first part of this post was inspired by the lovely Beth @ Reading Every Night’s 2-Year Blogiversary post, which was so amazing to read!!)
