5-Year-Blogiversary: Am I a Blogosaurus yet?

5 YEARS!?!?!?! I feel old … and proud! Which makes me an old and proud blogosaurus I suppose? (This was a running gag among some bloggers and myself about how people in the community, who stick around for so long, are basically dinosaurs.) Looking back, I cannot even imagine life without blogging anymore. What did I do in my spare time? Why was I even at my laptop? (school work and TV shows still existed, but that doesn’t seem as compelling of a reason …) What would I do without the many, many amazing people that have come into my life through blogging alone? Gosh, this is getting me emotional already.

It definitely hasn’t always been easy. There have been good and bad times – getting my first eARC, stats envy, reading slumps and very necessary weeks of me disappearing on binge-watches. I think we all have those moments where we doubt ourselves or what we are doing, but it’s only important how we come out the other side.ย This blog and the community that comes with it has been through it all with me – uni, graduating, fun and terrible jobs alike, my lengthy “vacations” and now this stretch of me trying to find my way as an adult. Some days I am just in awe to still have you all visit this little corner of the interwebs and I appreciate it so much.

As many of you know, I really wanted to do a giveaway for this milestone. It’s a special one to me, because I am turning 25 this summer and that means this blog was with me for more than a fifth of all my life. That is just crazy intense! Unfortunately, I am still on a job search, so a book giveaway just isn’t possible right now. I wish it were different, but things will change and I will be able to hopefully do one in the future again (maybe for my birthday in August? No promises, but here’s to hoping!).

However, to make this milestone a little fun for all of us, I was thinking we could do a little Q&A with a bonus! I would love it if you sent me some questions, that I will then answer in a separate post, via email and I will randomly choose one person from all those people who send in questions who will receive some of my new art work. For those of you unfamiliar with what I do, here is a little taste from my art insta page:

So, please send those questions to impossiblegirlblog@gmail.com and also include 5 of your favourite TV show/movie characters. To enter in this giveaway, you have to be 18+ years or have permission from your parents to share personal information, such as your name and full address with me should you win. None of the information you give me will be shared! Please, also be aware that I can only take people into consideration for the giveaway who send me an email, however, you are free to send me questions for the Q&A in the comments as well. The deadline to enter in the giveaway is June 12th 2018.

Lastly, THANK YOU for being here, for commenting, liking and following this blog! Thank you for being the amazing person that you are and for letting me be part of your life! I probably wouldn’t still be here blogging and celebrating if it weren’t for you all!

    • Thank you so much!! And please don’t be shy, I might be a blogosaurus but I don’t bite. I obviously can’t promise that you’ll win, but if you can come up with even just one question you’d like me to answer in my Q&A post, you’re already entered in the giveaway – it’s only an email away ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. Wow five-years is an incredible achievement Kat, and I thought I was doing well at nearly three years now! ๐Ÿ˜€ I definitely get what you mean about all the ups and downs that come with blogging, but considering you’ve stuck around this long I’m guessing there have been more ups than downs. ๐Ÿ˜€
    I will definitely be entering your giveaway, can I also say I love your art and your idea for this giveaway too, just need to think of some questions but I will be sure to email them over before the deadline
    Again congrats, and here’s to another five years right?! ๐Ÿ™‚ โค

  3. Wow, congrats on the five years!!! My one year anniversary is coming up very soon, so it really puts into perspective just how long you’ve been at this!

    Also, can I just say how stunning your artwork is? I particularly love the trees; I love the colors fading into the background, and I’d actually legit buy that if I saw it. ๐Ÿ˜› Very lovely!

    Good luck on the job hunt! Find something that you really love to do and a group of people you will enjoy working with, and settle for nothing less.

    • 5 years is such a long time, but it feels both like an eternity ago and just yesterday that I started blogging. I don’t intend to stop anytime soon (or ever from where I am standing now), so I hope blogging will stay with me through whatever comes next.
      Hahaha thanks! I won’t turn 25 until the 3rd of August, but I guess I am in my 25th year of living already. Happy to be part of the club ๐Ÿ˜€
      And I am looking forward to your email!! Good luck!

  6. Did I mention how talented you are???? You really have an amazing talent there, and I’m glad you cracked open that hobby and started sharing it all with us. โค All that aside, CONGRATULATIONS KAT!!! 5 DAMN YEARS! I honestly can't see a future without blogging too. It has become too essential to our lives, huh? Some would say it's an addiction. WTVA! We do what we love. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I do hope your adult-life-purpose-hunting will go smoothly and that you'll find that sweet spot for complete happiness soon. Keep ya chin up, girl! ๐Ÿ˜€

    P.S. Can my Q&A question be as simple as: How awesome is Kat? ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • Thank you so much, Lashaan! It’s been a lot of fun sharing my art work on instagram and on the blog. And I really do feel like a little blogging dinosaur for being around for this long haha but why would we ever give up on it on purpose? I’ll figure everything out in time. That’s how it usually goes, right?

      P.S. hahaha I guess that you could ask that question, although I am not sure I am the one who should answer it hahaha

  7. Happy Blogiversary!! ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰Five years is such an amazing achievement! I’m in awe of you investing so much time into your blog. โค
    I have been blogging for nearly 3 years now (my blogiversary is coming up soon as well) and I can't imagine my life without it either. I have no idea what I did in my free time when I didn't blog?! And I have no idea what I would do without blogging, so I don't plan on quitting any time soon.
    Also, your art is FANTASTIC!! โค

  9. MASSIVE CONGRATULATIONS AGAIN, Kat! You definitely are a dinosaur now haha, I’m going to enter my 4th year in November and I’m going to be joining that club very soon and I am… quite excited? I mean, older blogger means wiser blogger, or something? Hopefully? I don’t know, but I love the idea that we stuck with this little hobby for so long and I 200% get it when you say you can’t recall what you did on your computer before. honestly, I can’t recall what the heck I spent my time doing, either?! That’s strange, how it takes over our lives, but also quite incredible, I’d say ๐Ÿ™‚
    Thank you for such an awesome giveaway! I’m off to send you an email, hopefully think of some original questions for you to answer, too…. let’s hope my brain will come up with some GREAT questions hahaha ๐Ÿ˜›

    • THANK YOU, Marie! I think everyone who has been here 3-4 years is a dinosaur as well haha
      I know that I spent A LOT of time at my laptop even in the years before starting blogging but I cannot fathom what I did haha I guess I watched shows and YouTube clips … messenger services were a thing too, but there must have been something more.
      (You did great on the questions!)

        I… I think I spent A whole lot of time on the messenger things too hahaha. I guess I'm glad blogging is taking much time now, though, I mean, it's a great hobby that makes us feel…. like we're doing something cool, being productive and everything haha ๐Ÿ˜€

  10. A huge, huge congratulations on five years! And ah, seems like I made it just in time to enter the giveaway! Your art is absolutely stunning- how was I not following your art insta, again? I don’t know how this happened, but I just fixed it.
    I’ll make sure to think up a good question and send it on email, but until then, many many many congratulations again! ^^
