Hey friends!!

So this blog post is going to be a little different from what I normally do. This is my thank you card to you all! Two days ago was my one year anniversary on my blog!! I can’t believe it!! A whole year with Blondie and the Beat!! 🙂 I just wanted to take the time to thank everyone who has supported me, whether it be from day one or from four days ago. I cannot tell you how amazing it feels to write about something you love and have people read and enjoy it. Every time I get another follower, comment, or even a “like” I get all giddy inside and can’t help but smile.

I started this blog, because I needed to. I had to get my writing out there. I wanted to introduce new musicians to people. I wanted to share what I was listening to. I wanted to live tweet music events and write about them. Blondie and the Beat lets me do all of that and I am so thankful for that.

I know I don’t talk a lot about my personal life but I’m going to be a senior in college after this semester… I know. Scary stuff… I plan to continue writing as much as possible. I hope to gain more followers so we all can revel in the beauty of fantastic music. I’ve gained so many cool friends on here and I love reading everyone else’s posts, you’re all so insanely creative on WordPress and I couldn’t be happier to join this community. One of my good friends ( and I recently met up in NYC and brainstormed some ideas to mesh both of our fan bases together and I can’t wait for you guys to see it! 🙂

In the meantime, stick around, read on, and listen to some cool music!

Thank you for believing in me this year.
