2015: My Year In Review and Looking Ahead To 2016
I’ve only been blogging for about 4 months, but I LOVE it, and want to stick with it. In this post, I’ll be talking about my blogging experience in 2015, and things I want to do and change and what’s happening in 2016.
2015 was a great year for me! I really started reading YA and bookstagramming, and that led me to blogging. I met so many wonderful people through blogging/Twitter, and I hope to keep talking to them throughout 2016!

things I did in 2015
Since I haven’t been blogging for too long, I haven’t posted that much. But I posted reviews, discussions, memes, lists, and co-hosted a project that was so much fun!
some of my favorite posts of 2015
people that made my 2015
Hannah, Claire, Kaitlin, Xan, Alex, Gabi, Lillie, Deanna, Cat, Nicola, and way too many to list! Know that if we talked on Twitter or here, you made my day, and I ❤ you for that.
looking forward to 2016
I want to post more discussions and reviews! I feel like through them, you really get to know the blogger and their opinions. They are also my favorites to write and read.
I’m going to BEA 2016, in Chicago, and I am so excited. It’s going to be an amazing time, and I’m meeting some of my closest blogging friends. It’s going to be SO GREAT.
I don’t care about the numbers. It doesn’t matter to me how many followers, as long as I’m talking about something I love, and still enjoying it. However, it is nice to see growth from one year to the next, so I’m hoping for new people to come to this blog, and like what they see!
I’m thinking about self-hosting. This might come in 2016, if I decide to, or 2017, if I want to hold off (because money). What I do want from self-hosting is a theme that’s completely mine, and a blog that’s unique!
2016 is hopefully going to be an amazing year full of growth for this blog! What are you excited for in 2016? What are your plans for your blog?
Thanks for reading!
