This past week was Bookblogger Appreciation Week; and, while I participated in this recognition event, I did not know such a thing existed! Not to mention, I did NOT realize how many people read my reviews and my essays on my blog, and my other content (S.F.W.A., podcasts & Fantasy-Faction) elsewhere. We all went through a lot in 2020 and in the 1st half of 2021, and it has been an experience to behold. Now that society reopens on a (somewhat) steady rate, it’s a great feeling knowing that my content continues to be recognized and to be acknowledged by fellow readers and fellow bloggers.
So, right now, I’m going to say, “Thank You,” to you and to everyone else who have continued supporting me with my blog and my other writings. Especially, during the last 6 months—as I was in my final semester of graduate school, again—as I balanced my life while keeping up with my blog. And, I have an announcement: next week, I will be starting my career as a librarian. I am very excited to start my new job, which may or may not assist with the plans I have for my blog and with my aspirations as a writer. Strangely, I am looking forward to the commute because I can catch up on all of the audiobooks in my library.
As 2021 begins to close out, I hope my audience continues to grow both on my channels (will I revive my YouTube channel?), and I want the same thing for my bookblogger friends. Whether or not we communicate through social media, livestreams, and/or in-person events, I am proud to be part of the bookblogging community and how it continues to influence both my writing and my reading. Let’s be honest, if it weren’t for this community, then I would never have considered reading half of the books I’ve read and will read. In addition, I want to say, “Thank You,” to all of the publishers, the authors and their editors, and their marketers for giving me the opportunity to read and to review all of the available books from your companies; and, for being patient with me as I read (or listen) to the books and as I write the reviews for them.
I’m going to keep my thankful post short and sweet, but you can read my posts of the past and the future to learn more of my thoughts about everything from books to video games to social issues. Thanks again for your continued support! See you online or at the next book event!
