Today my blog celebrates its first birthday! And I’m so proud of how it and I have grown:
A year ago this blog was read by just my family and friends.
Now I have a whole 27 followers. Not that impressive but it’s still gotten bigger (and if you’d like to become a follower, now it’s a good time. Celebrate with me!)
A year ago I was lucky if someone looked at my blog everyday.
Now I have page views in the 600s every month.
A year ago I was an unemployed book lover with a part time unpaid internship.
Now I’ve completed Book Lover Goal #1 and have my dream job—an editorial assistant position at one of the best children’s publishing houses.
A year ago I was writing the fourth big revision of my WIP The Rose of Coracus.
Now I’ve finished up the fifth draft and have queried. I was unsuccessful (but only queried two agents). And although I’m still unagented, I’m taking big steps to achieve Book Lover Goal #2, to be a published author.
Not bad in one year, right? I hope you’ll continue to read my blog as it grows even more in the coming years (and please give me your feedback about what you’d like to see here).
