So, as you might have guessed, today is Enchanted by YA's second anniversary!!
(and this is my face right now but let's ignore how much I relate to sloths *realises that it's almost midnight and starts falling asleep*)
Continuing with the tradition (if you can call it that after 1 time) I started last year, here are some of the things I've done through the blog, 2015-16:
- Posted 126 times O.o
- Found another 240 absolutely brilliant follower friends.
- Created long-lasting friendships with other like-minded book/writing people that brighten my day (you know who you are and if you don't, it's probably you ahah)
- Found myself completely immersed in a community that may have its occasional dramas, but never fail to be supportive and encouraging and awesome.
- Discovered new blogs, people and books alike that remind me why I love doing what I do.
- Read a looooooooot and reviewed quite a bit too!
- Struck up the courage to post about my writing and current project. Exhilarating and terrifying.
- Started a bookish Etsy shop called Enchanted Bottle Craft. And people like it. People actually buy my little creations. It's a feeling I can't describe.
- Attended multiple book conventions (YALC, UKYA Extravaganza, YA Shot) that I'll never forget.
- Realised that it's okay to take a step back sometimes and breathe. Remember that self-imposed pressure isn't necessary.
Amazing people (but by no means all of them!):
