Whoop Whoop! 2017 Here We Come!

Well Hello Peeps!

Here I am with my final post of 2016.

It’s been a roller coaster of a year, hasn’t it?

For all the downs, there have been ups as well!

I was able to go with my family to Finland, and spend time with my parents, brother and his family, as well as my own. It was a trip that was memory filled!

I managed to make the Annual Blogger’s Bash Awards, where not only did I get to meet many of the key members of my blogily, but I was also voted second best blog!

A biggie for me, I managed to publish my first book! A volume of poetry, named Poetic  RITUals. And with over  10 five star reviews across the various Amazon sites, I was blown away! If you are inclined, click below to check it out!



And I haven’t been as active on the blog, but I do hope it has been more quality than quantity this year! I managed to secure over 2000 followers, so it can’t be all that bad!

What will 2017 hold?

I am no psychic so I have no idea. Maybe this will be the year I am able to get back into my creative writing properly, and who knows, maybe there will be another book with my name on it in the future!

I do know, though, that I shall become an honorary aunt to the baby of my best friend! And in June 2017, I shall be meeting my darling Blogily again at the Annual Bloggers Bash, and who knows… maybe there will be more of you there to meet this time!!!

I only hope that whatever happens, happens for a good reason, and that we are all healthy, happy and at peace with one another.

Anything else will be a bonus!

So let me take this moment to wish you all a wonderful New Year! May the future be bright for you all, my wonderful blogily Peeps!

Light and love!

      I guest posted on a few blogs, and used booklinker to get a universal amazon code so wherever in the world a reader is they get directed to the right amazon page for them. Also I did a free promo for 2 days. It all helps xx
