Four Years and Counting

When I first started The Haunting of Orchid Forsythia four years ago today, I never once thought that I would reach this incredible milestone.
My mind is absolutely blown that I have managed to keep the blog alive and how much it has grown since I first started out. *does crazy dance*

Be sure to check out the three awesome authors that will be visiting this week on the blog. Here's a hint as to who will be stopping by: They are all authors of mid grade books that have been reviewed on the blog this year...late summer to more recently. I cannot wait to share their posts with y'all.


The Good Things About Blogging:
  • Being able to share your thoughts with like minded people. Honestly who other than fellow book nerds is going to listen to me ramble on about the books I love and the ones that fall flat.
  • Its so cool knowing about books before must people...and some times even having the chance to read them early always makes me smile.
  • Sometimes getting that early read that makes you want to dance with joy because you've been thinking about it since you first heard about it.
  • Realizing that there are actually people out there reading what you write and even leaving the occasional comment. Very cool.
The Bad Thing about Blogging:
  • Sometime you just want to runaway and hide from your emails. *tell me I'm not the only one*
  • Little too much drama sometimes for my taste. Pretty sure I don't need to elaberate on this.
  • Some many great books that one wants to read, but finding the time to do so can be nearly impossible when life is busy.

I read, and am working on replying, to all the comments y'all leave. All comments are moderated by me, so, if you don't see it automatically that's why.
Psst, there is no "Word Verification" on the comments. =)

Keep on being awesome!
