My Blogging Anniversary!

Actually, it was two days ago. Ahem. So I completely dropped the ball on that. 🙂

But now I’m recognizing the milestone. It’s been one year since my first blog post and since I committed myself to actively pursuing independent publishing. One year of meeting amazing people and making wonderful friends, learning the publishing ropes, and being part of one of the most turbulent times in the history of the publishing industry.

Let’s be honest; this has all been such a breath of fresh air for me. I’m invigorated and productive in a way I never knew before I started down this path. I appreciate my own strengths, and the advice of my friends, more than ever before. I’m stretching my limits, and making my dreams come true.

In the 368 or so days since I started this blog, I’ve published two novellas, and written another novella and a novel that will be published later this year. I’ve posted here 84 times now, which means I post about every four days…that’s more often than I’d planned on, and that’s the average for the whole year. There’s a lot of exciting stuff to talk about, be it books, authors, writing, writing challenges, publishing,  or book promotions. I’m having more and more fun all the time. 🙂

I thank all of you for being a part of the welcoming community of writers, readers and bloggers that I found when I started down this road one year ago.

  1. I’m so glad you started this blog…otherwise, I might not have met you. Isn’t it amazing how people can meet and connect through blogging? Happy anniversary! I need to go back and check how long I’ve been doing this. I know I hit post #300 the other day. It would be interesting to go back and see my first post. 🙂

  2. Congrats! This calls for origami confetti, a nice wine, and oddly I feel like macaroni and cheese. My oh my, it was quite the productive year for you (lucky for us). May the next year be even better for you. I’m coming up on 84 posts, and I’ve only been blogging for three months, I really can’t shut up can I?
