Today is my third blogiversary, which means my blog has officially moved out of the Terrible Two’s and is fast growing into a toddler!
I did a sort of “state of the blog and my life” post at the beginning of the year, and not a whole lot has changed since then. After how crazy 2010 was with all the life-changing events, I’m glad to have had a relatively quiet start to this year. However, I do have some fun “blog by the numbers” stats to report:
- 204 = Books read
- 670 = Posts published
- 10,938 = Comments written and received
- 87,222 = Visits since I started tracking with Google Analytics in 2009
- 393 = Most visitors in a single day (April 12, 2011)
- 764 = Twitter followers (@kimthedork)
- 3,249 = Tweets sent
- 5,607 = Views on my most popular post, Bite Me! Literary Criticism of Twilight
- 4,850 = Views of most popular review, Gang Leader for a Day
I’m not a big fan of doing giveaways or contest as seems to be traditional-ish with birthdays and blogiversaries, so I’m not going to do one today. But I do want to say thanks. Without your reading and commenting and generally being awesome, I’m not sure I would have stuck with blogging this long. On days when it seems like too much work, being on Twitter or getting a comment that says, “Wow, I want to read this book!” keeps me motivated and excited.
The thing that would make my day is for each and everyone of you to stop by and let me know you’re here. I do a lot of my blog reading and commenting based on when people leave comments here, so if you’ve never commented I may not know you’re around. The book blogging community is a huge one and it’s hard to know who is who or which ways a single blog connects to others. The best way for me to find you is to just say “Hello!”
