IT'S MY FIRST BLOGIVERSARY!!!!!!
I cannot believe I am writing this post! Mostly because I didn't think I wouldn't have kept up with this blog for a year, and I definitely didn't think that I would have made as many bookish friends as I did! Today, Paperback Princess turns one, and I could not be more excited!!!!
When I started this blog, I was shy, I didn't have much experience writing, and I didn't know where my future in writing would end up. I started this blog with the purpose to get more writing experience, but I have taken away a lot more than just that. I have been able to communicate with the most funny, thoughtful and relatable people ever. I have been able to share my passion with people who are going through the exact same thing as me. I have been able to read some amazing books that I didn't even know existed prior. And, I am able to communicate with authors who have changed my lives. Blogging has become such a huge part of my life, and honestly, I wouldn't change it for the world.

All things that I thought were impossible. It's never been about the numbers for me, but I am just so amazed at how far I've come considering I was at zero 1 year ago.
