3-Year Blogiversary Q&A: Part 1!

It’s been 3 years since I started blogging.

It’s so strange to say that (it makes me feel old even though… I am a baby), to think that I’m going into my third year of blogging in this community. I’ve changed and grown so much throughout these years, and blogging has contributed to that.

You all mean the world to me, and I can only hope to one day repay every one of you for your kindnesses. It’s very surreal to me, and though there have been rough spots and I still struggle with some things, it has been an amazing three years and I’m so grateful to still be here with your support <33

I decided today to just go ahead and start my Q&A, instead of another post like I usually do, since it’ll be split into two parts! If you’d still like to ask questions, you can comment them below or submit them here!!

Goodbye 2019: The End of Year Book Survey, ft. My Best & Worst Books and Yearly Stats!!

FINALLY, I can write this post.

I’m gonna be honest, I’ve been waiting all year for this post, because it’s one of my favorites to write, despite all the hours of work it takes me.

Today, as always, I’m linking up with the End of Year Book Survey created by The Perpetual Page Turner. There are lots of questions on this wonderful survey that I won’t be answering, but I truly love how comprehensive it is! I’ll also be talking about my reading stats, garnered by my wondrous google spreadsheet and presented in the form of pie charts!!

Also: Hi! I’m currently in NYC right now, having the time of my life!! (Perhaps we’ll see a post about it?) I just wanted to say that this post took me HOURS to make, hence why I’m posting it so much later than I wanted to. Who knows if I’ll disappear again, but I hope you all have a good day!!

Goodbye 2019: My Favorite Moments of the Year and the Decade!

It’s that time of year…

That time of year when I reflect on everything that happened and realized this year was a lot worse than I thought!!

In an effort to be more positive (because as you can see, I’m not very good at that), I’ve decided this year to take out the “least favorite” moments, because I’d rather not dwell on all of those. And I’m a little afraid there would be more of those than favorite moments.

Also, 2019’s special because it’s the end of a decade, so I decided to throw in some overall favorite moments of the decade as well! I was practically 2 years old at the start of the decade (I’m exaggerating!!!), so they’re all a bit more recent, but still important enough to me.

My Top 5 Favorite Diverse Romantic Couples in Celebration of Valentine’s Day!! (aka None of You Are Surprised)

I hate Valentine’s Day!

Call me a cynic but I just. feel so weird about getting sappy and sentimental (not really). I know I do it quite often but I like to appear Cold and Unemotional (not really) and Valentine’s Day just messes it all up!

BUT I do appreciate a good sappy romantic post now and then (not really), which is why today I’m going to share some of my favorite diverse romantic relationships!! I don’t know how I managed to narrow it down to just 5, but I love all of them very much.

Also, I just wanted to note how weird it is that while most fictional books have romance, I feel like in contemporaries it’s more prominent (since in fantasies there’s a whole lot of other things happening, like being on the Brink of Death), yet fantasy ships are the ones I find myself and others obsessing over the most??? I don’t know, just a weird thing I noticed!

NOTE: I’ve also included my favorite art of the couple as well! All art is credited of course, and I love them so much and looking at them makes me cry.

It’s My 2-Year Blogiversary!! // Me Being a Sap, Shoutouts to the Friends Who Made My Year, and Some… Promises

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!!!!!!
