Happy 6th Birthday, Nyx Book Reviews

nyx book reviews 6th birthday

Nyx Book Reviews turned 6 years old this month!

*tackle hugs all of you*

I was going to write this post, but when I finally opened the blank page to write something, I realized there are no words.

To say that the last six years have been a rollercoaster is an understatement. When I started writing on Nyx Book Reviews I was a 15-year-old who had just recently rediscovered her love for reading. Nyx Book Reviews grew as I grew, was always there in the back of my mind as I left home for college, as I moved from city to city. It’s my creative outlet, my passion, my playground and thoroughly, irrevocably mine.

But Nyx Book Reviews was never just my brainchild – it’s also a place where I met some absolutely fantastic people. Everyone who has ever left a comment in that white box, thank you. You are amazing. You made Nyx Book Reviews into something better than I could have ever done on my own.

Sometimes blogging is great, when words flow and the discussions are passionate. Sometimes blogging sucks, words stagnate, the fervour is gone and deadlines pile up. In six years I’ve seen the best and worst the blogging community has had to offer; author breakdowns, plagiarism, hissy fits, but also wonderful friendships, events, and collaborations.

Ultimately, I just want to say thank you to every reader, young and old. Nyx Book Reviews wouldn’t have been the same without you. Here’s to many more years!

      Thanks so much Nuzaifa! I had lots of pie and waffles this weekend, so I’d say the celebration was quite appropriate πŸ˜€

    What a lovely post! It’s a huge achievement to have kept your blog going for so long, through university and exam deadlines, through blogging highs and lows and you should feel proud. I wish you many more happy years (and hopefully ones that are low on the bad things!).

    Wow 6 years, that’s a great milestone! That’s amazing you’ve been blogging for so long. I am sorry I haven’t stopped by much lately, although it looks it has been a bit quiet on your blog. I hope you’re doing okay!

    And that is so true, blogging is amazing, but also has some bad moments or situations you see.

    Here’s to many more years of blogging!

    • http://www.nyxbookreviews.com/ Celine

      Oh no, don’t apologize! Not only did I not blog all that much the last few months, I’m honestly just grateful for the times you do visit.

      So thank you, and I’m looking forward to some many more years of blogging!
