Another year has come and gone. 2019 brought the beginning of this blog and only increased my passion for reading and writing. I’m grateful for the growth I’ve experienced this past year, and cannot wait to see what 2020 brings!

In 2019: I read 27 books/audiobooks, wrote 34 blog posts, had viewers from 32 countries, gained numerous followers in the bookish community, and have found something I love to do. I’m grateful to craft a hobby into something that is enjoyable to not only myself, but to others as well.

For this new year I hope to maintain the goals I’ve set from the past year. I’m still learning so much about blogging and content creation. I hope you all stick around to see the growth of Hummingbird Ink because I have lots of ideas to come!
