It’s been a year since I started this venture, and I can’t explain how much this blog has come to mean to me. I’m trying not to be soppy but, honestly, the last year has been incredible, and a lot of it is due to blogging. Despite the stress of a difficult relationship, a tough final year of university, and suffering from a stressful housing situation, this blog has always been there. It has taken the blows of a difficult year, and it has absorbed them. Not only that, I have spoken to and discussed ideas with so many incredible bloggers, who have commented, liked and viewed my posts whilst offering advice, and discussion. Blogging can be a lonely world, and often you can feel alone; here I have never felt more supported. This blog has helped me to grow and explore not only new books but new ways of writing, new authors, and most of all a new me. Now this is getting soppy so I should probably pause, and tell you that this month I gained 4,361 views. 4,361. I can’t believe that a month ago I was celebrating 10,000 views, and here we are a month later and now I am well on the way to celebrating the next milestone, 20,000. Goodness. If you had told me a year ago everything that has happened here I would have laughed at you. But here we are. All I ask is you keep following my journey; I have no idea where we are going, but I can promise you it will be one hell of a ride.
