I can’t believe that I have had this blog for 2 years! I remember when I was trying to find a good website to start my blog and all the thoughts that I was having when I was looking for one. February 20, 2015 will be a day I will never forget – the day that I started Ann’s Reading Corner. So, after these two amazing years, I thought that I would write a little thank you note to all of you, the reader, will know how much I actually care about you.
Dear Amazing Reader,
Thank you so much for following me for the past two years. I never thought that I would be in this place right now two years ago. This has been such a roller coaster ride and I am so happy that I am able to bring you into the journey. I thought that I would do a post every month or so, but now I love spending time up here, communicating and reading what other people are doing in their reading life right now.
I have never felt pressured to do anything on this blog, or felt like I have to read a certain book. When I am with my friends at school who read, I feel like I have to read certain books and do a few things. When I come online, I feel like all my stress has been removed and I am free to be whoever I want to be. I am allowed to read any sort of books I want, and I can say whatever I want to about a book. I’m not afraid to go out and say that I totally hate a book because I know that there is someone else out there that feels the same way.
Every day, I feel like I am inspired in new ways. I see so many different people and how they live and it inspires me to try something new or do something different. Even when it is a little post – like a book review – somehow I get inspired. I’m inspired to read the book or try a new way in writing a post. I love reading like the personal touches in everything because I feel like I am having a one on one conversation with you.
My life has not been easy, not at all, but like I said earlier, I feel like this is a way for me to remove some of my stress. I can come up here, write my heart away and I don’t care if no one reads it. I typically write what I think is interesting. I sometimes get influenced or inspired by what other people are writing but typically I follow what my heart wants. If I like the idea that comes up in my mind and if I like the final product, I keep it. I have had such a difficult time with my friends in real life and I have always felt a little different than all my other friends but up here, I feel totally normal. I feel like I have new friends (basically a second family) and I am free to be as crazy as possible.
I love all of you guys to the bottom of my heart. I love all of your comments and everything that you guys do. I hate not being able to post at least once a week and I hate having to wait so long to respond to all of your comments. Even when I get only a few views, I still appreciate every single one of them. It let’s me know that at least someone is interested in what I am doing. Thank you for everything that you have done and I can’t wait to make many more memories with you all. Let’s make many more years of memories together.
