3 Year Blogiversary Celebration ft. Me Being Insanely Sappy, Lots Of Thanking, And Some Surveys!

The only proper way I can think to start this post is with a massive thank you.

Without your continual and unending support I wouldn’t still be doing this three years after I started. It’s hard to believe that it was so long ago I started, and I shudder to think about what I used to do.

Still, growth is important, and having this space has been an amazing chance to grow and learn… and before I get too sappy, scream about books.

First off on the list of thank you’s I have is to the people I know in my life, who have always supported me – especially the NSF chat. Y’all offer so much encouragement and I know I can count on you ❀ πŸ₯ΊπŸ₯Ί I won’t list others who I know in this community, but three exceptions (as always!!) are Olivia, Ash, and Ruby – all of whom I adore and will never stop promoting!!! They deserve the world, and have always been so sweet and supportive πŸ₯ΊπŸ₯ΊπŸ₯Ί

^^I feel it relevant to note that adding hyperlinks above made me emotional because when I started I didn’t know it had to link to a specific post to notify the person :’) how much I’ve grown is really becoming clear.

I also want to say that I’m really proud of what this blog has become. Over the last three years it’s evolved into something I genuinely love, and without it my life would be so different. I really have you all to thank for that as well – I started because I love writing, I continued because of the support I received.

I’ve definitely been a ‘worse’ blogger over the last couple of months, what with taking a month off unplanned and posting far less, and part of that is just how it’s going to be from now on. My school work (unfortunately) takes priority, and it’s increased a lot this year. I don’t plan on quitting anytime soon however, and feel free to slide into the comments and give me a little nudge along – encouragement always works (for one, I love that people want to hear from me, and two: I feel guilty. Guilt is a surprisingly powerful motivator.)

I also passed 200 posts this year?? Somehow?? That is absolutely insane to me, especially as at least 100 of those are more than 1k words. (My 200th post was this one, if you’d like to check it out!!) I didn’t reach any other ‘milestones’ per se, but even though I’m secretly hoping to reach something this year (shh, it probably won’t happen. If it doesn’t, I never said anything.) I’ll be happy if I can just be posting regularly. Lately I’ve been trying to find my blogging voice again, and I’m ready for this journey to continue.

Once again, thank you so much. For everything – whether you realise your support or not. Even though it wasn’t exactly what I planned (especially the last couple of months), I’m happy with what I’ve done in the last year, and I’m especially proud of what I’ve made this website into over the last three years. Here’s to another three πŸ’Œ

And, finally (I promise it’s the last footnote this time), before I end this extremely long sappy speech written by an absolute idiot with no concept of shutting up, I will ask you once again to fill out these two surveys!! One is a feedback form for me to know what I’m doing with my blog, and it only takes a few minutes so please!!! The link is HERE, and it’s embedded below too.

The other is a Q&A form, as I’m finally doing one!! After a very long time, I thought it could be fun. Nothing is off limits, except you have been warned you may get some creative answers πŸ˜€

Thank you once again. This would normally go up at 1am my time, but I wanted to hit publish for myself (even though that’s turned out to be almost 9pm…) on this particular post. Thank you for everything xxx

  2. AHHHHHHH congratulations on three years of blogging, Rhi! πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰ *Throws confetti*. *Screams*.

    And I don’t think taking some time off makes you a worse blogger – we all need time to recharge our batteries now and again. [I ended up taking a three month long unplanned hiatus… Whoops?]. I’ve loved watching your blog grow and I can’t wait to see where it takes you this year. πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’™

  4. Congrats πŸŽ‰ 3 years online is an amazing accomplishment! Also, there’s no such a thing as a bad or worse blogger, you are allowed to have a life offline and be less active here. As long as you’re happy, that’s all that matters!
    Looking forward to all the future blog posts to come ❀️
