Okay so I
usually don’t bother much with follower count and such but I just wanted to
give all of you a huge thank you, from the bottom of my heart. I was actually considering
letting this blog die once 2017 rolled in, but then Yuri on Ice happened and I
gathered the courage I needed to try and blog about something else besides
Tolkien and it’s one of the best decisions I’ve ever made with this blog. In
the past month my posts have accumulated around 370 000 notes which is so
INSANE I can’t believe it. December was definitely one of the best months ever
for me, and I’ve been clinging to this damn website for more than 4 years now. I’m extremely flattered by this amazing response, and never thought it would happen again after The Hobbit was done with all its movies.
YOU to everyone who followed me recently and THANK YOU to everyone who followed
me exclusively for Tolkien and who still sticks around. Everything I’ve done in
the past month has been met with overwhelming positivity, be it gifsets, metas
or silly memes, and I haven’t had this much fun in ages! 2016 was a very trying
year for most of us, and I lost someone very dear to me that meant a lot as I
grew up, and only a short while after my girlfriend broke up with me and I hit
a wall where I thought I would never be happy again. That’s the reason my blog
started dying, I just didn’t have the energy to do anything in that period and I was ready to give up.
But I’m so
glad I stuck around and didn’t give in, because in the past 2 months everything
started to turn around and I managed to get out of my depression and finally
found a new passion in YoI, and at the same time I met a lovely new girl who I’m
now proud to call my s/o. I want to thank everyone who stuck by me and sent me
positive vibes during the period when I was the most down, it made a world of
difference and for the first time in years I can actually say that I’ve been
feeling genuinely happy lately. And you’re one of the reasons I can say that.
AGAIN, THANK YOU EVERYONE FOR THIS OVERWHELMING SUPPORT. It truly means a lot
to me. Thank you. I hope you all have an incredible year!!
