Exactly one year ago, back in the days of my small desk by the window, I sat typing away, ecstatic over the fact that I now had a blog to call my very own. I admit that my very first blog post was a bit awkward, and for quite awhile, I am sure that I gave my handful of readers the impression of a crazed psychopath (what with all my posts of points I'd failed to make, rather bizarre images of David Tennant as a sheep, and the issue of my ignorance towards copying and pasting into Blogger).
But what an amazing year of blogging it's been. Let's look at a few "fun facts":
- October of 2014 has been -- so far -- the month I've blogged the most during, coming to a grand total of eleven posts.
- Not counting this celebratory announcement, I've posted on *A Sapphire Chamber* forty-nine times.
- My ten most popular posts of all time include my Tales of Goldstone Wood allegorical theories, a DIY of the healing bracelet from BBC's Merlin, my review of 2015's Cinderella, my final post of 2014, my cover reveal for Anne Elisabeth Stengl's Draven's Light, the seven-seven-seven writing challenge for my current work-in-progress, this year's announcement of my new blog look, my blog's first short story (which I do believe has been my worst piece of writing, yet), last year's list of some of my favourite writing sources, and, finally, the post explaining the recent adding of the "R." to my name.
So it's been a great first year of blogging, and thank you all for accompanying me through it! Here's to many more! :)
