write meg! turns three

Well, friends, it’s that time again: a moment to celebrate write meg!’s birthday. This little blog is now a plump, adorable three-year-old — a toddler ready to tackle the world and evolve in exciting ways.

When I started blogging, I didn’t have any real vision for where life writing in a public forum would take me. I simply wanted a forum in which to talk about my life and books with others, fill long afternoons and connect with people outside my office walls.

Years later, I’m proud to have this little corner of the Internet to call my own — and am incredibly thankful for all the friends and colleagues I’ve made along the way. Experiences like the Book Blogger Convention have only strengthened my ties to our bookish community and made me incredibly grateful to know all of you.

Chatting about books, life, food and love has enriched my life in countless ways, I can’t imagine what I would be doing if I didn’t have recipes to share, books to rave about or photos to splash onto the screen. If I thought I loved  writing and reading before, those devotions have now reached the point of obsession. But I like it that way.

Thank you all for your kind words, encouragement, support and friendship — and thanks for just being here.

Me? I’m super happy you came.

  5. As a professor of writing, I’m always saying to be a good writer, you need to read and write A LOT. This means some of the best writers around might be book bloggers. I’ve been wanting to start asking bloggers if they’ve noticed any changes in their writing from so much reading and writing practice. Congrats on your perseverance!

    Best,
