Hello All Of My Lovely Bookworm Friends,
*WARNING: RANT AHEAD*
A few months ago (I think it was November) there was a #BloggerConfessions going on on Twitter (aka - the area where I sprout the most nonsense/ spend most of my life) and I remember saying "Oh, I don't have any friends" like a petulant child. It's been just five months, and EVERYTHING has changed.
I'll be honest, when I started blogging, I expected to have 10,000 followers in two months because I thought I was Oh-So-Awesome, and obviously it didn't work like that and I was (kind of) disappointed. (Great Job, Aditi. Everybody thinks you're a brat now.)
I think I stayed that way for a LONG time, there were a few months when I forgot I had a blog at all, because I was a captain at school (think Student Government with world domination powers) and a whole new friends circle (Hello Physical Friend That's Reading This), organizing events and general life stuff (GAAH.). Not that any of that is an excuse, but when January 2016 came, I decided to really re-evaluate my blogging life.
I'd been here for almost TWO YEARS, right? So, why wasn't I getting the traffic? My answer? ME. I was NOWHERE is the blogoshpere, cut off from all the lovely new blogging friends I've made in three months, and just generally clueless. And, so, I decided to put myself out there, and here I am!
THESE LAST THREE MONTHS HAVE BEEN THE BEST OF MY LIFE. Whether it was a crappy school or home or studying day, in THREE short months, I had this whole ARMY of people that I've never actually met that I could rant too, and if I've even spoken to you even once, YOU ARE ONE OF THERE AMAZING PEOPLE!
Here, take these confetti GIFs.
Things I have learnt in two years:
1. YOU CAN WIN THINGS. (Okay, this is a joke) but I did win the Fall 2014 YASH and IT WAS THE BEST TIME EVER.
2. ARC's are magical god particles that will make you feel like the coolest person on earth.
3. AUTHORS ARE PEOPLE, AND SO SO SO SO FUN!
4. Put myself out there (and not hide out in bookshelf)
5. BOOKWORMS AND BLOGGERS ARE THE BEST PEOPLE EVER!
BLOGAVERSARY CELEBRATIONSNow, because my last blogaversary went poof (aka, it was nonexistent because this was when I started by Bookstagram) I have AN ENTIRE MONTH of AUTHORS AND GIVEAWAYS!!
Everyday from tomorrow April 2nd, to April 30th (And my May 1st Final Rant) you will get a NEW author, answering some AMAZING questions (there might be cakes, pirates and kidnapping involved), giving you exclusive content, showing off their shelves, and of course A GIVEAWAY FROM EACH OF THEM (or me)!
Of course, this isn't my party without giving you something from me, so I have THREE HUGE PRIZES: (open Internationally, DUH)
