So I’ve been blogging for almost 3 years now, and there’s one major change I’ve noticed. Many of the bloggers I used to follow have either given up, gone into a slump or disappeared altogether. Given the amount of time it takes to blog, it’s not surprising. But three years is a long time to stick at any hobby, and I’m proud of everyone who has made it to that milestone.
I met some wonderful bloggers a few days ago, and although it was the first time we met, we had so much in common from following each other’s blogs, and tweeting each other. I really appreciated the passion and the connection we have as bloggers. Knowing the limited time each other has to spend on reading and reviewing, on blogging and commenting, yet somehow finding time out of our busy schedules to do it. Wanting to pick up every new release, yet feeling the guilt of our unread books at home. Knowing how we, as bloggers, each have our individual opinions on different titles, and we can still respect others’ wildly different opinions to books.
Having that connection and a blogger support group, is has what made me continue this thing throughout the years. Because no matter how much work you put into your blog, without those cheering you on as your moral support group, it would be so much harder doing it all alone.
We pour our heart and soul into a hobby that we could have easily given up a long time ago. But even if we were able to touch someone’s heart, to make someone’s day, to connect to others through our words, that makes it all worth it you know? And to make some wonderful friendships, that transcend time and place. That is powerful stuff guys.
With so many of my beloved bloggers quitting, I don’t know how many of us will still be around in a few years time, let alone tomorrow. But let it be known, I’ve really appreciated getting to know every single one of you. With your unique voice, your craft, your style and your thoughts and opinions, thank you for sharing your time with us.
I’ve glad to have known so many beautiful, passionate people through their craft and it’s been amazing sharing some wonderful conversations with you.
