Time has flown by so fast, Christmas has come and gone. I’m looking for to the new year, 2020! My mom actually inspired me to pursue this passion again. The last post I made was in July and was for a reading challenge, that I *surprisingly* read nothing for.
I started this blog when I first started highschool and barely kept up with it because of homework and other passions, like reading. Life always gets in the way. I forgot the reason I created this blog in the first place, it was because I wanted to discuss my love of reading with others. I have been following bloggers like Perpetualpageturner, Thewritinghufflepuff, The Mile Long Bookshelf, etc… for years. I always wanted to have a space to connect with others who share a common interest and longed be part of the reading/blogging community. But my anxiety was preventing me from doing so, I was scared no one would read it or that I would be criticized for making a grammar mistake. I was stuck in my own head thinking the worst: that I would not be accepted.
To my shock, I did receive comments and likes from a few individuals. I want to apologize for not maintaining communication and supporting you in turn. I am socially awkward and constantly worry about saying the wrong thing. I want to try to be better this year, let go of fear, and talk about the things I love.
Do you have any resolutions for the new year or do you hate and refuse to make any? What are you reading in the new year?
