I'd like to first, thank ALL of you for the unbelievable blog love and support. I can't believe Talk Supe is 5 already and it's evolved so much and went through a lot of tweaking before the things got here. If you're a close follower, you'd see the "moods" of the blog. Currently, Talk Supe is more laid back, more like a book diary than an active participant in the book industry.
I know this boring to some, but it's serving it's purpose (as far as I'm concerned anyway) at the moment. I know it's a "tale as old as time", but like most bloggers, Talk Supe started because of love for books and a venue to just Gush & Gripe. Then things became exciting, hooked up with authors and tour companies and Talk Supe got in the game. Then it peaked when all the arcs came rolling in, keeping up with release dates got stressful but still exciting. Blogging may be a hobby, but there's also a competitive edge to it and you want to be ahead of the curve.
But as amazing as all that is, it eroded the enjoyment I got out of reading. So I slowly pulled back and did my best to get back to the enjoyment part. And that's what's been happening in the last two years hence my decision of skipping a big blog bonanza on Talk Supe's 5th.
Blogiversaries are ways for us to express gratitude by offering giveaways and virtually inviting people over to celebrate. This year, I decided to celebrate myself for a change and just read what I wanted to, posted when I felt like it and stayed relatively quiet last month.
That said, I hope you believe me when I say I am beyond GRATEFUL and HONORED to have come this far. To all the authors, publishers, tour organizers, my awesome followers, and my fellow blogger rockstars, MUCHOS GRACIAS! SALAMAT! THANK YOU for allowing me to be part of this sphere and for inspiring me to keep doing what I like to do just because I like it.
