Today is a day that brought a fabulous surprise! I finally hit 100 Followers! And on the very same day I surpassed 500 Likes. So thank you, dear readers, for taking the time to share some love for my little labor of love. Years ago I would have told you by now I’d still be in a college classroom talking about literature, but I’d be doing it from the other side of the room. Words have always been my passion, and reading and writing are a form of therapy for me. Sometimes life doesn’t work out the way you want, unfortunately. Though I’m grateful for the job as a law librarian, at one point I realized that I missed the passion I had for the kind of books that help you escape. Sure, I was still reading in my spare time, but I wasn’t talking about the things I read as much as I’d like. I rarely felt the rush of really analyzing something. I wasn’t sharing my thoughts or my ideas. I wasn’t celebrating the inspiration I got from the pages of a book.
Upon realizing that I was missing something important in my life, that’s when I started my blog. Or, I guess I should say restarted my blog, which was originally a project for library school. I can safely say that it was one of the best decisions I’ve made. I found a community of wonderful, like minded people on here who are passionate about the same things. I’ve loved being able to share insights and to gain insight from other blogger’s posts. While I still feel like I’m learning how to be a better blogger every day and working toward doing better at networking, it’s something I greatly enjoy and has helped to fill that void. So again, thank you for sharing your own words with me and for showing an interest in mine! Onward now to new milestones.
Much love and wishes for a good book to find its way to you!
