2017 - A Year in Review

As the year comes to a close, I thought it was time for yet another "Year In Review" post.  Though for me this year has been full of ups and downs, I think 2017 overall turned out to be a pretty okay year for this blog.  I know that over the past couple of years, especially earlier this year, I've been pretty inactive with this blog and didn't post that often, but slowly I've began to come back to this blog and post quite a bit more.  Plus, for the first time in forever, I started posting new ABBA drawings! :D

This year, my blog turned 5 which is a really big accomplishment.  I can't believe that it's been 5 years since I created my blog and soon enough it's going to be turning 6! :O

I'd say that this year my ABBA collection has grown considerably.  I was really lucky to find Voulez-Vous at a convention earlier this year and I absolutely love that album!  My best friend Eleonore also sent me 4 wonderful singles which I could not be happier with!  And then there's my recent purchase from ABBA the Museum.  I'm really surprised and happy with how much my collection has expanded and I hope that 2018 will bring me even more ABBA things to collect!

And this year I've made quite a comeback to my YouTube channel as well.  In August I reached 300 subscribers, and with all the new activity with my random compilation videos (that I will do a proper post about in the future!), I've reached 400 subscribers in just a few months!  I'm absolutely honored to have so many subscribers and I'm really excited to be sharing lots of new content!

Also this year my book "The Story of ABBA for Young Readers" turned 1!  I can't believe it's been 1 year already since I released my updated book and I am so honored by all the attention it's received.

I'm really looking forward to what 2018 has to bring for us, especially in the ABBA world since we should be getting more information on Virtual ABBA. :D  Happy new year everyone, and I hope 2018 will bring lots of wonderful news and exciting things for everyone!

Please keep your comments related to the blog's content. For example, I run multiple blogs and don't particularly want comments that have to do with one of my other blogs on a blog that has nothing really to do with the other. I might share posts because they're all my blogs, but please, keep your comments related. :)

Please don't be surprised if I don't publish your comments right away! I see every comment and will always get to them as soon as possible, just not all the time. I'm a busy person when I'm not blogging. ;)
