My Blog Is Turning 2!

Note: This is a GIF filled post.

“Today is my blog anniversary! Whoop-whoop!”



That’s how I have been imagining the way to celebrate my blog anniversary—but in reality, the day is just how I celebrate my birthdays. People greet me and I give a shrill thank you in return, but I try to keep my day as simple as possible, much to my parents’ distress. I prefer the day to be spent simply in small activity, like baking cookies, with the small company of friends. I even remember on my last birthday, I remember eating Lunchables at school.

I’m weird like that, to remember strange facts.

But hey, this may sound serious, but this is that one day per year I use GIFs in my post.


As of today, I have 24111 page views, 171 posts (171’s multiples are 1, 171, 57, 3, 19, and 9) and 145 followers! I sound like a nerd, but John Green says:



Yay! I want to mention everyone who has stayed by my side during this blogging journey and to all of the new friends I have made—gosh, it’s a crime for me to name everyone because you’ve all made an impact on my blog and I, and I have just got to say: 
From the bottom of my heart, thank you all for sticking up with me, through the crazy life journey and experiences that I experience. It means a lot that my blog has grown, and that all of you are supporting me. It’s helped me grow a lot in my confidence as a writer and as a person. You guys keep me going every day. ^.^ 
Here is a kiss, hug, banana, and fist bump from the minions and Baymax!





I'll be here chatting all day, so don't be afraid to chat in the comments and check back every once in awhile!

    1. Thank you, Susanna! My blog is actually quite a mess behind the scenes. I have many posts that are unpublished and unorganized, and I don't want to even get started on my pages. *is surprised by surprise confetti* *grins* YAY!

  4. Ah happy blog birthday!!!! I remember when I first came across your blog I was hooked. I've read EVERY SINGLE post and never commented because I would be a stalker. Your blog is fabulous and I just love it so so much. You have inspired me Morning, and you have inspired so many of us. (PS: love those gifs)

    1. Haha, yeah. I've actually remember one time I tried to surprise one of my friend on her birthday, so I sent her a text message (I don't see her that often). It took three minutes to type. I remember my fingers being really sore. XD

    1. Thank you, Clara! I love using GIFs; a lot of times, I restrain myself from using GIFs because they are really good at expressing how I feel online sometimes.

    1. Hi Autumn! Yeah, two years... I feel so old, blog wise! I kind of wonder what would happen once I got published in the next several years. If I ever do, I'm going to have to consider what I want to do with my blog... but that's a long ways away!

  13. Congradulations! Two years is a long time. It's hard to believe my blog will be turning four this March!
    Small celebrations are the best. I have no idea why though.
    By the way, I love the picture kf Cinder. Isn't it just the most amazing book ever? Can't wait for Winter. Did you know it's suposed ti be 800 pages long? It's going to be awesome!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Wow, four years is pretty long too! I think small celebrations are the best because you can appreciate it more. And even though there are some celebrations that are HUGE, they aren't as memorable or more dear to the heart as small ones. And Winter is 800 pages long? I'm on Scarlet right now; it's getting really good!

    2. Isn't it just? I love those books! I read all three in three days. I can't wait to get my hands on Fairest!

      Delete
    3. In three days? Wow! I wished I had much more time like that on my hands; usually it takes me three to four days to finish a book. When I was younger it only took a day. It's probably because of my homework load; it stacks up so much. I can't wait for Cress and Fairest! Ahh! :D

    4. We were on holiday in a plce where we hd to drive everywhere. We also had long evenings with anothing to do. So I had more than enough time on my hands.

      Delete
    5. I love reading long into the evening... I made one of my teachers do that on accident when I recommended a book, and well, let's just say she got really cranky. But in the car? Wow, that takes skill! I get really dizzy after reading for five minutes during the drive.

  16. Congratulations, Morning! I know I'm *so* terrible about commenting on your flawless blog (this design is BREATHTAKING, by the way, though I'm not sure when you changed it), but I really truly wanted to wish you a most heartfelt happy second blog birthday. You are so supportive and genuine, and you totally live up to your online name. Here's to good bloggy wishes for the coming years!

    A big congrats on your second blog-o-versary!! That's a big achievement! Also, I completely agree on the simple birthdays—who needs fancy shmancy parties every year, eh? lol.

    1. Hi, Eve! No problem! It's nice to read other people's blogs. ^.^ Two years is big! Possibly the people who need big parties are the people who don't get to spend nice things often! Thank you so much for commenting!

    I wanted to stay home for my birthday last year, but my parents wouldn't let me (sigh). This year I'll probably plan something smaller, and still stay home ;).
