An Appreciation Post

This appreciation post is long, long overdue.

Recently I’ve been taken aback by the incredible amount of support this blog has received. When I started Nut Free Nerd years ago I never imagined that so many thoughtful people would be reading, sharing, and commenting on what I write. I’ve posted over one thousand times on this blog (!!!) but warm, fuzzy feeling I get from reading your comments and engaging with you all in this lovely bookish community never fades away.

I’d like to make a special shout out to some fellow bibliophiles in particular:

Michelle @ The Writing Hufflepuff: I’ve been following Michelle’s blog for what feels like eons and I always look forward to her entertaining, creative, and thought-provoking posts.

Shanti & Shar @ Virtually Read: These two bloggers never fail to make me laugh, smile, and think. Whether it’s on bookstagram, Twitter, or in the comments section of my blog, their thoughtful words always make me grateful to be part of such a wonderful bookish community.

Selah @ A Bibliophile’s Style: Selah is so sweet! I’ve had the pleasure of following her blog for years and I adore her kind, fun, witty personality. I always look forward to reading her delightful comments.

Marie @ Drizzle and Hurricane Books: Marie is one of the loveliest bookworms I’ve ever come across. She’s so engaged in the bookish community yet somehow always manages to find time to read and comment on my posts… she’s the greatest!

Maraia @ lettuce_read: Maraia’s comments on bookstagram posts always make me smile. Not only are her comments always funny and thoughtful, but they’re refreshingly genuine as well. I aspire to be as engaged in the bookish community as she is!

Dani @ Perspective of a Writer: I admire Dani for her positive outlook and dedication to spreading gratitude and appreciation throughout the bookish community. She consistently creates weekly appreciation posts in which she shares links to blogs she really enjoys. She included me in one of these posts once and it brightened my day so much.

To anyone who has ever shared my posts, nominated me for an award or tag, left a comment, or even simply read my posts: Thank you. Without you, I’d just here uploading posts into the internet void while mumbling about books to my dogs. (I mean, I already do that now, but at least there are people reading what I write!)

I cannot express how much I appreciate each and every one of you. Your support means the world to me. Thanks bunches ❤
