It has been almost six months since I started blogging and in that time my confidence has grown when it comes to talking to people and commenting on other blogs – miracles do happen. The blogging community is a friendly community and I thought today I’d show some appreciation for those people whom have taken the time to read what I’ve written and to speak to me.
First of all, a big thanks to ANYONE who has read my blog, commented, liked a post or spoken to me on Twitter. It is difficult to mention everyone, but I don’t want anyone to feel left out so a huge thank you to you all. Have a virtual flower.
The vast majority of people who visit book blogs and comment are other bloggers, but you may have seen a fellow bookworm roaming the book blogosphere, whom isn’t a blogger but a fellow passionate reader. Know who I’m talking about? This wonderful person is Maraia. Maraia has become a regular visitor here at Oh, the Stories You’ll Know and is very active on Twitter and actually talks to you. I know: gasp, right? So that’s what Twitter’s for. 😉 (I have gotten better at talking to people.) She always leaves great comments and a conversation gets started. Also, I happened to mention on Twitter that I was in the mood to read a contemporary and she sent me a list of contemporary recommendations on Goodreads – seriously, how nice is that? As well as book recommendations, Maraia also offered to send me gluten-free recipes, because I was looking for some. I thank you, Maraia, for taking the time to read this socially awkward persons’ blog and well…just for talking to me. You deserve all the cake in the world.
Your Majesty, Queen Cait at Paper Fury. (See, Cait? I used a royal title. I know you wish for world domination. Would you prefer Empress Cait? or is Queen Cait, okay?) Thank you for being your hilarious self! I’m always guaranteed to laugh when I read your blog and it’s always a bright spot in my day. OMG, I’m going all soppy. What has happened to me?! I know you’re very busy with all your royal duties, so thank you for commenting, replying to all my comments and for the origami tip – I’ve improved a bit, due to your advice, but I still can’t get them perfect. Look to the sky, a dragon’s on it’s way to you – because every ruler needs a dragon.
Asti. If it wasn’t for Asti from at Oh, the Books!, I wouldn’t even have thought to start a book blog. Blogging can be stressful and is certainly time consuming, but it also brings me joy; I have found something I enjoy doing and that’s important, so thank you Asti. Now get your arse back to the UK! There may be chocolate waiting for you. 😉
A few others that I would like to thank are:
Olivia @ Olivia’s Catastrophe
Megan @ Adrift on Vulcan
Kara @ Diary of a Teen Writer
Inge @ Bookshelf Reflections
Chiara @ Books for a Delicate Eternity (Yay for Merlin! Anyone who loves Merlin like I do, belongs on this list 🙂 )
Again, thank you to everyone for taking the time to read and comment on my little blog. It means a lot. Now, everyone have some virtual cake and a cookie for my cake hating friend Asti.
