ITS MY BLOG BIRTHDAY!
I am so excited, I can barely handle it. Today is the second birthday for What A Nerd Girl Says.
I can’t believe that my blog, my baby, is two years old. I have worked so hard on it, and it really means the world to me. What started off as a place for me to defend my love for YA, and just YA in general, and a place for me to just be completely me has become so much more than that.
I’ve created a place where I can go to escape, and to talk about the things that I love completely. I’ve met so many amazing friends, friends that I can’t believe I ever wasn’t friends with. Major shoutout to Sylvia and Cassie, two people who I do so many fangirl things with, I can’t imagine doing them without you. We have SUCH adventures together. But I love ALL the friends I’ve made through this adventure like Mina and Janette and Alex and Stephanie and the rest. You guys ROCK.
I also love that I’ve been able to meet other amazing bloggers. They’ve become super inspirational to me, and helpful and I’ve loved getting to know all the fantastic bloggers out there. And if you’re thinking of blogging, you should do it :) Its fun, and if you’re passionate about it, you’ll love it. There’s a great community of bloggers out there, and I am so appreciative of it.
I am also grateful for the amount of authors and librarians and booksellers that its brought into my life. I’ve literally surrounded myself with people who are as obsessed with words as I am. I love having these people in my life and wrapping myself further into the book world. I feel like I’m constantly getting amazing advice on making my blog better, on becoming an even better author and figuring out what I’m going to do with my life. I think I’ll have the support that I need when its time.
Basically, it comes down to this: I’m such a lucky girl. I’m surrounded by amazing friends, inspiring people and I get to do some of the most amazing things. I’ve met so many authors that I can barely count how many and I have experienced so much. I can’t handle the life that I’ve been able to have because of my blog and what it has brought me. Yay for two years and here’s to many more being the Nerd Girl of What A Nerd Girl Says!
