IT IS BOTH FRABJOUS BUT VERY SLIGHTLY SCARY AT THE SAME TIME. WHY? LET ME EXPLAIN IN A LIST:
1.) Let us do some maths. There are 12 months in a year. Half a year is six months. I have been blogging for half a year. THE TIME HAS GONE SO FAST.
2.) I don't feeeeel like I've been blogging for six months! Time has flown by so fast! It feels like a few months, yeah, but six...? Can I scream, NO!?
3.) I have hardly posted at all but you've stuck by me! I have reasons for not being around much, of course! Excuses! Long essay length speeches on why I have been not the best most consistent blogger in the universe! But you've all stuck by me and commented and chatted to me on ALL my posts! Not a single one of my posts doesn't have a comment on it and I think that is pretty darn FANTABULOUS.
4.) I have found so many utterly frabjous people in the blogging world! I have met and now follow many wonderful amazing blogs run by wonderful and amazing people! EVERYONE I have met is so nice and friendly, and I am truly thankful for that.
5.) People actually seem to like what I have to say! (They're obviously completely crackers, but WHATEVER.) Once Upon a Bookish Time has collected many followers, stats and comments since April and my little mind boggles at it all the time. THANK YOU EVERY ONE OF YOU!!!!!!
The book community is such a fabulous one and I have met literally dozens of frabjous bookworms through their blogs or through mine! It amazes me and makes me incredibly happy at the same time! So without further ado, here is a (verrrrry long) list of all the fantabulous bloggers I love.
The 2 most frabjous fantabulous amazing people in the blogoverse I have to thank the most are:
ROMIIIIIII!! You were my first ever follower and you've been with me since post one! You always leave such beautiful comments that leave such a big smushy smile on my face and I love reading your posts! You are seriously the most frabjous person I've met since I've started blogging!
CAIIIIIIIIT. I know I don't comment very much on your blog but I read EVERY ONE of your posts and adore every single one of them! I love you to Wonderland and back! You're such an encouraging person and you have the most amazing sense of humour! Talking to you is so fun, and I literally cannot wait for you become a published author!!!!!!!!
I have my money right here (I especially want to read Never, Never...can you hear me jumping up and down with longing through your computer screen?)!!!!! ;)
The other frabjous people that have made my blogging journey so much fun:
Skylar @ Life of a Random
SKYLAR. I miss your frabjous posts now you're at collage! You were my first GFC follower which made me ridiculously proud and still does! ;) You've been so nice to me, and I'm really thankful for that!
Zoe @ The Infinite To-Read Shelf
ZOEEEEEEE. Oh, girl, you are seriously one of the NICEST people I've come across these last six months! I love how thorough you are in your reviews (yay! I'm not the only critical reviewer put there!) but you always stay so nice at the same time (which I always fail with...it's either I love you or you're in the bin) and I also love most of all how I have a person to back me up when I tell someone I dislike City of Bones! *uses Zoe as a shield*
Emily @ The Loony Teen Writer
EM! *bows* You are the Queen of gifs! I inhale EVERY word you write and I SO WANT TO READ YOUR WANDERLAND BOOK. Oh, I hope it gets published one day so I can! If you ever need a beta reader for it YOU KNOW WHERE TO FIND ME. ;) You are definitely going to be one of those ridiculously famous authors when you get published along with CAIT and I'm going to say to all these people when I show them your book(s), "Well, I not only KNOW this author, but SHE'S COMMENTED ON MY BLOG!!" *insert smug expression*
Sophia @ Bookwyrming Thoughts
Yayyy, SOPH. You've been absolutely SPIFFING to me these couple of months, and I'm really glad we met! Coblogging with you is going to be FRABJOUS!
Hawwa @ It Was Lovely Reading You
Haha, HAWWA you make me laugh so! Your reviews are always beautifully written and sound more like a poem then a review! Your comments are hilarious as well as your beautiful blog design that matches you so!
Jeann @ Happy Indulgence
JEANN, you leave such lovely comments and I really love reading your reviews! I have read so many books that you've recommended that I've adored, and I'm really thankful to you for it!
Siiri @ Little Pieces of Imagination
Ahhhh, SIIRI. Hehe, you make me laugh so much! You are seriously a professional fangirl, and I just adore how determined you can get over something! If I ever give in about getting twitter it will probably be because if you. ;) You are such an enthusiastic person and I love knowing you!
Kelly @ Diva Booknerd
Oh, KELLY, you are seriously so nice! I love your blog from the content to the droolworthy designs! (They are seriously so pretty! Wish I had you talent, lovely!)
Charnell @ Reviews From a Bookworm
CHARNELL. Here, is a perfect example of where I silently stalk someone to death...but they have no idea. THIS IS ME WITH CHARNELL. I love Charnell's sense of humour and her use of gifs (GIFS!!) as well as everything else about her and her blog!
Mel @ YA Midnight Reads
MEL. Your rant reviews make me giggle as does your obsession with MLP and Percy Jackson! I should really get on to reading that series, shouldn't I?! ;)
Aneta @ The Graffitti On the Wall
ANETA! Although you strongly dislike Throne of Glass and I am one of it's biggest fans, I FORGIVE YOU. You have a frabjous personality and we have awesome banter! ;)
Those are all the people that been utterly fantabulous these last six months!!! I am so freaked out I've forgotten someone (or ten, or twenty) but tell me in the comments if I have!
I was going to go over stats and comments and stuff, but I've decided I'll wait until my 1 year blogoversary to do that! ;)
