Blog Reflections 2017

2017 has been one hell of a blogging year.

I have actually been running this blog since 2014. Back then I was trying to fit in with all of the other book bloggers out there but it was dull and I didn’t post very often because I was bored and felt like my posts were getting drowned in the sea of blogs that were all written about the exact same books I was reading. 2016 was the year of the rebranding. I wasn’t very active but that was intentional. I was still working on the new face for my blog and I didn’t want people constantly dropping by when the place was a layout disaster and had inconsistent writing. When it comes to 2017 I would say it was the year I properly found my voice. I made a point of being more active and finally launched myself into the community. I even started making my own blog graphics. I am a graphic and digital designer professionally so it has been fun to use my blog for some Photoshop practice. I love making Spine Cracker graphics. They are so much fun.

To the dozens of blogging and online friends I have made this year, thank you. I am surprised that so many people are interested my creepy little blog. I am even more surprised that you all seem so “normal”. I thought the only people who would be interested in my shiny newly branded blog would be creepy folks like myself, apparently I was very wrong. You normals are messed up! Good for you. Stay creepy and I love you all for it.

What to expect in the new year? Well, maybe I will finally get my readathon, Spook Stock, off the ground because it didn’t happen this year as life got in my way. I will also be rereading Stephen King again so you can all enjoy me torturing myself some more. There will be more Goosebumps, more spooky facts about various books and maybe I will throw in some history posts while I am at it because I have a few ideas. I guess we will see what 2018 brings.

I guess this is just a post to say thank you, Happy New Year and have a very merry Christmas. I will see you in 2018.

  1. Well your brand is your personality! Life would be so boring without diversity so it should not surprise you that so many people loved it 😉 Merry Christmas!

  2. Everyone’s unique and I personally love that particular trait about you. Although I am not someone who would read spooky books, but I love your blog. HAPPY NEW YEAR!! Also I want that readathon to happen.
