I seriously can’t believe this is true. Â When I started this adventure, I had no idea where the next year would take me.
Exactly a year ago today, I posted my first blog post. New Ventures.Â I had just returned from Texas Library Association’s annual conference and I was committed to starting a blog. Today I have the same story. I just returned from TLA for the second time and I’m just as excited about blogging. I can’t imagine my life without the friends, experiences and adventures that blogging has brought into my life.
I want to thank a few people but I want to be clear that this list isn’t everyone who I need to thank. I could never list everyone. If I list a ton of people, then someone will be left out and feel bad and that’s absolutely not my intention.
Thank you toÂ Jade and Brittany, my Buddy Readers!Â I know I would have loved Leigh Bardugo if we hadn’t read them together, but I know that it just wouldn’t have been the same. You two are always available for great talks and secret handshakes.
Huge thanks toÂ Sarah,Â Â my BlogHop Party Twitter Chat Co-host. You make hosting a twitter chat seem effortless while at the same time sharing the load. I wouldn’t want to do it without you.
Finally everyone who’s taken a chance on Â me. I can’t thank you enough. People have let me guest post on their blogs, guest posted here, sent me books to review, let me join them for blog tours, let me borrow prized ARCs and done me favor after favor. The community is amazing and I’m so proud to be a part of it.
Here’s to another year of excitement, adventures and new friends!
