As if Friday’s weren’t good enough, got to top it off by hitting 600 blog posts! It doesn’t feel that long since I was doing my 500th blog post celebration! I am always saying this but I am constantly still surprised my Blog even outlasted the summer holidays of 2017 – let alone over 4 years later still going strong.
It obviously goes without saying – but a massive massive thank you to all of you – new or old, who are reading my blog posts. I’d like to say that I’d still be doing this even if you weren’t here to keep reading but honestly your support means more than I can put into words and it really is what motivates me to want to keep sharing my thoughts and rambles.
My first post went live on the 16th of July 2017. I hadn’t been an avid reader for very long but I definitely think joining this community made me love reading all the more and since joining Bookstagram this year has only fuelled my book reading to have my most successful reading year yet (109 books finished so far this year and it’s only August!)
I have definitely had a rocky posting schedule over the years, but I really got into the swing of things last year over Lockdown and I’m so happy I’ve managed to keep it up now even though life it starting to return to something more similar to our old normal. I know I showed some stats off in my 4 year Blogiversary post but I just thought I’d put them here again.
Since then my stats look something like this:
Since July of 2017 (4 Years and 22 days ago), my blog has had 30,932 views by 15,517 visitors. Thank you for taking the time out of your day to read my rambles.
People from 118 different countries have read my blog. Which is just crazy to me. There are apparently 195 countries in the world so I am well over half way to having had someone from every country few my blog.
I have received 14101, likes and 3,263 comments. Your support is unbelievable and I can’t put into words how much your I love seeing that you’ve enjoyed a post and hearing from you guys! The comments especially always mean a lot.
In all my blog posts combined, I have written a total of 523,262 words…which is just crazy! I knew I had a lot of bookish thoughts to share but there’s no way when I started out that I ever thought it would be over half a million words worth of thoughts!
In a few of my previous milestone posts I have listed some of my favourites…and I definitely have favourites that I always say, especially my Tips for New Bloggers post because it got so much love and support and it helped me make so many new blogging friends. So that will probably always have an extra special place in my heart.
I want to say one last huge thank you to the 1,516 people who follow my blog and the 1,286 people who follow my Bookstagram. And another big thank you for those you still read but don’t follow. Anyone who reads what I have to say means the world to me SO THANK YOU! ❤
I hope that you keep stopping by. I am sorry for the sappiness but amazing Milestones like this just bring it out in me! Thanks for all the comments and love I have been getting recently. This community is incredible and I wouldn’t change it for the world. Anyway, I hope you all have an amazing weekend and I will see you all again on Sunday with another review post ❤
