Happy 201st Blog Post

17 Nov

When I launched my blog back in July of 2010 (the 5th to be exact), I never dreamed that I would a) stick with it long enough to make 200 posts, or b) have enough books that I felt needed reviews to be posted (because I honestly don’t review half of the stuff that I read)…

But here, I am, so happy 201st Blog Post day – I actually planned on doing one for my 200th post, but that just seemed to expected whereas a 201st, not so much (yes, I am that much of a dork!).

Now for the random blog facts (since I know you guys love them!)
5487 total views (and thanks for all you guys who keep coming back for bumping up my numbers!)
122 views on my busiest day (who would have thunk that a blog giving away prizes would have been the most popular…)

Top countries that have had viewers to my blog:
United States (well, duh, I live here)
Australia (Thanks Mom!)
Philippines (ok, that was an interesting one…)

Random Countries that popped up:
Iceland (thanks James!)

Most Popular Post:
Summer Blog Giveaway – Aug 1 (ironically, my most popular blog day…)

Most Popular Review:
The Ponds of Kalambyi from 28 October, 2011.

Most Popular Tag Used:
Audiobook (well, I am a self-admitted junkie), followed by 3.5 stars (guess I am also a picky reviewer 😉 )

But of course, no blogaversary would be complete without gifts 😉 So for all you guys out there, I’m offering up a $20 Amazon giftcard to a lucky commenter. All you have to do is comment and let me know which of my reviews, or other blog posts, you found the most interesting. Entries will close on November 30th.

    Hey you! I will post a link to this on my blog this week. Remind me! I like your audio reviews, since I have never listened to an audio book and I find this very intriguing. I also like your post by Mrs. Missive. :^) Have you started the Gamache series yet? You will LOVE it!

    Happy blogoversary! I’ve just found your blog and had a quick look around. I’m a romance reader and listener and it looks like you read more broadly than I. I enjoyed your review of At Grave’s End. A lot of people have trouble with Bones’ voice!

      Thanks! I always make the joke, I would read a cereal box for something to do – so it made sense for me to review a little bit of everything

    Congrats!!!! I love the blogging milestones. It’s always surprising to me when I hit the big ones (# of posts, months, etc). Looking forward to many more!
    My favorites are usually the reviews. It’s why we blog, right? 🙂 Anyhoo, should I be the lucky winner, here’s my info: bookaddictsguide(at)gmail(dot)com

    Hi. Happy blogaversary! I am happy to see that my country is one of the most viewers of your blog – the Philippines! 🙂 I enjoy looking at your list for the Classics Challenging and I am a bit depressed to note that I haven’t finished my classic challenge for myself either. Some are just too good to be read in summary, but not in whole as most are too long, a bit dull in the middle, and well, boring. But will still try to read more. Enjoy blogging~

      I feel the same way – i’m really worried about whether I’ll enjoy all of the books that I picked – so we’ll just have to wait and see I guess!

        Yeah, I think so, too. Good luck to both of us. Cheers!

    Since you started my love for audiobooks, I enjoy reading your audiobook reviews. 😀
