My 1-Year Blogiversary!! MASSIVE THANK YOU + Shoutouts + Survey + Q and A+ Stuff

Um. So I actually missed my blogiversary?? It was actually a week ago but I somehow missed the notification so here I am celebrating a week late, cuz of course I find ways to mess everything up!! But wait WHAT. It’s been an entire YEAR?!?! I canNOT believe that cuz I still know almost nothing about blogging how HAS IT ALREADY BEEN A YEAR??

I honestly am amazed i made it this far. And I’m so proud. I had thought blogging would just be my summer break time pass, but it’s turned into so much more. I hadn’t expected I would stick to it and actually post regularly through most of the year, but HEY I DID!!

In honour of my blogiversary, I’m going to be listing things that blogging has helped me with/ things that have happened to me this year, and then I’m gonna go on to shout out some amazing people I met on my journey, I’m gonna push you guys off to fill up a survey for me to improve my blog, and some more stuff. This part of my post is inspired from May @ Forever and Everly, because i had loved this idea of listing all the things blogging has done for me.

Because of blogging, I have:

  • Come across so many amazing books. The blogosphere has recommended so many books like Six of Crows or Strange The Dreamer to me, which I wouldn’t have picked up on my own account, but have now ended up loving. So many of you guys have similar reading tastes as me, and that has ended up with me hauling hundreds of more books on my TBR. I actually shouldn’t thank you for that, I am DROWNING IN BOOKS.
  • Connected with and talked to the most amazing people. It feels amazing to be in a community with so many people who love reading as much as you do, and actually understand your love for it. All of you guys are so amazing and mean so much to me
  • Become more confident in my writing skills and sharing my writing with others. I’ve always been hesitant and unsure about my writing, but blogging has made me so much more confident about it, and has made it easier for me to share my work. Though I still doubt myself, I’m always able to get over the anxiety.
  • Improved my own writing. Not only have I become more confident, but writing so much every month has also made me become a better writer (I think) and has shown me how to improve even more.
  • Read SO MANY MORE BOOKS. I read more than a hundred books last year, and so many of them were books I had seen in the blogging community.
  • Inspired myself. The fact that a small little blog I made just out of boredom has gained over 700 followers in the span of a year has made me so proud of myself, and has inspired me so much, because it shows me that I can really really do what I put my heart to.

So I’ve been planning on doing a survey for quite a while, and when I realised I just missed my blogiversary, I figured now is the time!! It’s a survey for me to get some feedback to improve my blog for this year, and I would really, REALLY appreciate you guys going and filling it out. It can be anonymous if you want, so don’t worry I wont eat you up. GO FILL IT PLZZZZ.


Edit: this survey does not work I made a mistake!! I’ve linked one which does work in my next post, so please go check that out and fill up that survey!!

Also, since I have no money to do a giveaway, I’m just gonna stick to the good ol Q and A. I personally love doing q and a’s so please give me some questions in the comments?? They can be about anything, not just reading and blogging, so go ahead and ask me whatever you want in the comments!!

  2. Aahh congrats on one year!! That’s so amazing and I’m glad you’ve stuck around. I definitely agree, blogging has introduced me to the best of people (and the best of books) and I’m so grateful that I started, even if it brings a lot of stress lmao. HAPPY BLOGIVERSARY!!! 💞

  3. Congrats, Rhea!!! I’m so proud of you! It’s already been a full year and I have loved watching your blog grow into the beautiful site it is today. I’m so glad we met and have had the chance to talk over books! (What could be better!) I am so looking forward to seeing what else you bring to this blog world! And I’m so touched by your shout out! Thank you. Thank you. Thank you! ❤

    For your Q&A, I want to know…if you could dream cast any characters from one of your favourite books, which lucky celebrities would get to act the part? (I hope that made some sense XD)


  4. Totally forgot to write this the first time, but thank you for your shout out. You’re too lovely! I also wasn’t able to access the doc to ask questions. It said I was outside your domain or something I honestly closed it before I really read it.


  5. Rhea!!!!! Congrats, congrats, congrats!!! ❤ You are always such such a pro with blogging that I'm honestly surprised that it's only been a year???? And this post was just so much fun. I loved how you showcased what blogging has taught you, and the shout-out was the sweetest (you're the best, Rhea <3). Blogging really brings you so many different books and friends, and ALLOWS YOU TO MEET PEOPLE THAT SHOW YOU THE WAY TO RICK RIORDAN'S GOODNESS (I'm being snatched back into his madness and I'm not prepared).

    Okay, here are my questions for you!!
    – If you somehow got stuck in a time machine, what period would you love to be transported back to?
    – What Rick Riordan world would you love to be zapped into? And who would be your two demigods to help your way?
    – Surprise! There is a mysterious package on your doorstep – what book is it that has just magically appeared?
    – If you were queen for a day, what would be your first thing that you would do?

    Congrats again, Rhea!!!! ❤ Can't wait to see what the years bring!! ❤


  6. Happy Blogiversary! That’s so exciting, and I hope you have many more years of blogging!

    Just a heads up though, I don’t think your survey’s working. It says it’s private and I don’t have permission…


  7. I LOVE YOU THANK YOU!!! congratulations on a year wowowowow promise you’ll keep doing this for at least infinity more ❤ ❤
