Did you know that a snail can hibernate for 3 years when the weather becomes too rough? Now that’s one heck of a power nap! This past year, I weathered the storms and challenges of creativity and today I am celebrating 3 years of blogging on Tea End Blog. I promise I’ve been awake the entire time though…
In this article, I celebrate Tea End Blog’s 3 year mark, what she (yes, my blog is a female) was able to accomplish this year, what I learned as a blogger of tea and literature and what I would like to accomplish in 2018. I also reveal my very own home office, a.k.a my 'bloggers' paradise'.

My vision will focus on quality not quantity and I will be more conscious of the type of teas and books I review as well as the type of collaborations that I participate in. I will also take planned breaks that won’t interrupt the flow of content to Tea End Blog but will allow me to rest, recharge and prevent blogger’s block.

There are 15 wonderful Series on Tea End Blog, all created to highlight various aspects of tea and literature. In 2018, I will focus on being more intentional with when and how often I write under each
