3 Year Blogiversary

Hi there!

I cannot believe it’s been three years. When I first started my blog I thought that maybe I would last the summer. So to still be writing about all my bookish things 3 years later is just insane to me. And as cliche as it is, it really is all because you guys are willing to read what I write because as much as I like telling myself that views don’t matter it definitely motivates me to keep improving. I’ve hit some other super great goals recently, like 500 WordPress followers and 300 posts. I’ve also been sticking to a super rigorous blogging schedule of every weekday. I’ve not broken this schedule in 4 months and I am not about to let it go now. It’s been tough to keep to it but overall totally worth it because it’s so rewarding to see the blog’s growth because of it.

I started my blog because I had been a bored summer holiday and had read all the books I had with me. I felt bad for constantly ranting about books to my friends because they were probably sick of it (they say they weren’t but hey ho) I had been reading a lot of blog posts over the summer and watching a lot of booktube, but I felt more comfortable with typing my thoughts rather than videoing them when I decided I wanted to start putting my bookish rambles out into the interweb. My first post was named Hi There! which is very apt as I still start most of my posts this way. It was a very short post that mainly just linked to my other pages, not very interesting – and luckily not that embarrassing either haha.

Stats:

Here is my views for every month that I have ever blogged. As you can see, March was always a good month for me because I always tried to post daily. And you can see how much I have grown in the past few months because of my new schedule.

Here are my yearly stats. Again, 2020 has a massive jump compared to my other years. I feel like this is a just been an appreciation post for my most recent months haha.

My Favourite Posts:

I always love doing my wrap-ups because they always make me feel productive.
I have also been loving my bullet journal flip-through/over views. I love hearing about everyone else’s themes and showing mine because I put so much effort into them.

My favourite post I have done in my 3 years however is definitely My Tips for New Bloggers. I spent a lot of time researching for it because I wanted to do it justice. The feedback and interaction on that post was just phenomenal. Plus, it was a great way too meet so many new and great bloggers. Just all round a post I am super proud of.

Thank you so much for reading. Like I said at the start, I know it’s cringey but without you guys I wouldn’t have stuck around for so long so thank you so much for your ability to put up with my rambles. I hope you have a great day and I will see you with another post tomorrow ❀
