It’s My BLOGOVERSARY!!! + Giveaway Time!

Posted July 26, 2017 by Nori in Giveaway, My Features / 10 Comments

Hello everyone! Today is my third blogoversary!!! I think that GIF is a pretty accurate representation of my feelings right now as I’m in shock at reaching this milestone! I can’t believe it.

If you told me three years ago that I would be writing this post today, I would have laughed and said “stop teasing me!” Never in a million years would I have imagined that my blog and the book community would become an essential part of my life– a piece of my heart that I cannot live without.

Yet somehow, against all odds, I’m here, and so are YOU, precious reader and friend. Whether today is your first day reading my blog or you’ve been here for three years, I cannot thank you enough for your support.

If you look at my posts from January 2017, you’ll notice that they’re very sporadic and sparse. After entering college, I had no free time to blog, and to be honest, once summer came, I wondered whether it was even worth it to restart my blog. After pondering for awhile, I shared some of my hesitations on Twitter, and I received an overwhelming amount of support messages that told me to follow my heart. Well, I listened to my heart, and I realized that I really wanted to continue blogging.

I know that my free time is going to dwindle as the years pass, but I would rather only have a handful of new posts per year than give up on my blog entirely. And hey, I still have the rest of the summer to schedule posts in advance, so the blog shouldn’t be completely empty in the fall and winter! I’m especially excited for my month long October feature– so keep an eye out for that! 😉


My statistics certainly aren’t impressive, but I’ve included them in my previous blogoversary posts, and I like being consistent, so here they are! When you look at all of my statistics, it’s pretty obvious that Twitter is the only place where I stand out, but oh well. 😛 I love all of my Twitter peeps, so I’m okay with that!

Statistics from the Past Three Years:

  • Total Blog Views: 98,756
  • Total Posts: 1,134
  • Twitter Followers: 5,019
  • Best Views Ever: 1,013 (The irony is I think it was a bot because they looked at every single post on my blog 😛 Well, I guess it could’ve also been someone with WAY too much time on their hands haha)
  • WordPress Followers: 626 (apparently I’ve only gained 7 followers in one year :/ )
  • Bloglovin Followers: 442
  • Instagram Followers: 688
  • Pinterest Followers: 187
  • Goodreads Friends: 466

I’d also like to give some special shout outs to some members of the book community who I feel honored to call my friends.
