I am participating in The Estella Society‘s Book Blogger Appreciation Week (from February 15 to 19), and I will use this opportunity to write about my favourite books, bloggers, and introspect about my writing and reading habits.
Day 5: How do you keep things fresh on your blog and in your reading?
I have decided to hijack Day 5. Because…
Worncorners turns one today!
*drum rolls* 😀
This day, last year, I signed up here, and reminded myself, “Listen, this blog is just for books. You will not write about anything else.” Then I quit my writing job, and realised that this would be the only place where I could flirt with words.
So I was like, “Fine. You can be wild and free here.”
AND, that’s the best thing I told myself last year.
2015 might have been bitchier than Dolores Umbridge. But because of my blogs, I met many, many Dumbledores, Hagrids, Weasleys, Dobbys… (Okay, I am exaggerating.) 😉
The last one year of blogging taught me these things:
- Reading and writing are therapeutic
- This planet carries millions of kind strangers
- Blogosphere is generously populated with empathetic listeners
- I can be unapologetically myself here
I am going to have a big tub of icecream today, and ask myself to be wilder and freer. 🙂
PS: I have been thanking you all since Day 1. However, I want to say one more time. MANY THANKS for everything. 🙂
