More than a year after Part I of this series, I’m back with some more observations and general *emotional realizations* about the book community. When I hit that big “Publish” button on my very first blog post, I had no idea what I was getting into. I knew Goodreads was a thing, but I didn’t know about the vast amount of books I was overlooking. I only knew about 10 other blogs, some of the most popular ones, I wasn’t aware of how many other bloggers I would eventually meet and grow friendships with. Back then, I still had so many things to learn, most of which I would have to grasp based on my own experiences!
Well, I think it’s awfully convenient that this particular post caused some chaos when I accidentally posted it too soon. I schedule posts to tell myself when they should go up, but I usually end up posting it days later, anyway. What's the point, you ask? I have no idea.
Guess what, everyone? Today is my very first blogiversary! I figured today would be a good day to share my year of experiences with you all. On one hand, I can't believe it's already been a year! But on the other hand... I feel like I've been blogging for a very long time!
I asked, you answered, and now, here it is... Part II of my "Things I Should Have Known" series! 😊 A few months ago, I made a post about things I wish I had known when I started blogging. I asked if y'all wanted another post about those kinds of things, and some of you said "yes"! I'm so glad that someone was inspired by that post, and I hope that you all can get something out of this one, as well.
Blogging can be scary sometimes, especially when you're a new blogger. Here is a list of 4 things I used to be afraid to do on my blog, but now I've learned to think otherwise.
