Today, June 11th, 2017, is my second anniversary in the blogsphere. Like, WOW.
As opposed to the Q&A I did last year, this year I'm doing a list of things that never would have came about if I hadn't started blogging.
~ I never would've known the meaning behind words and slang like 'feels', 'ship', or OTP.
~ I never would've met all y'all. I have been blessed with so many friends 'round here. <3 <3
~ I never would've won a writing contest.
~ I never would've stuck with writing. Just think, all those stories and books I flail about on here may not even exist.
~ I never would've found NaNoWriMo or Camp NaNo...and made so many wonderful friends through that.
~ I never would've found so many great books, mostly independently published ones.
~ I never would be publishing a book. (Blog tour signup closing tomorrow!)
After realizing all that, I believe it's safe to say God had a plan when He led a drifting, 14 year-old girl to the Circle C Adventures blog, and planted in her mind the desire to start a place to share her own ideas and dreams.
In my first year of blogging, I published 104 posts. (Unfortunately, this time last year I didn't take note of my comments, followers, pageviews, etc. So that's about all I know. xD)
After two years of blogging, my stats look like this...
Followers: 43 (Google) + 29 (email)
Most popular post: The Get to Know Me Tag (182 views)
I was going to do a giveaway of some kind to celebrate, but I haven't been able to make a permanent decision on what I wanted to giveaway, so I decided against that. If like me you love giveaways (especially books ones!), be sure to keep your eye out for a giveaway coming with the blog tour in a couple weeks. ;)
So long friends! How long have you been blogging? How long have you been reading my blog? Have any of you been here since those awful, first posts? *cringes*
