It’s the One-Year Anniversary!

Today marks one year exactly that I’ve had this blog. In that time I’ve posted 80 times, for an average of 6.67 posts per month. To start with I only managed 2 or 3 posts a month, but from July I picked up the pace and recently I’ve been trying to manage at least twice a week.

My most liked posts were Literary Tourism in Manchester, The Best Fiction of 2015: My Top 15, Final Stats for 2015, and my Early One Morning review.

The posts that generated the most discussion were: “How Many Books Is Too Many? (to be reading at once),” my review of The Novel Cure, and (tied for third) The Best Fiction of 2015 and my review of The Goldfinch.

My most ever views were on December 29th, when I published a list of My Favorite Nonfiction Reads of 2015.

So far I’ve had 3,018 visitors and 5,438 views.


I thought that at some point my ideas would dry up, but I currently have four posts in progress and a three-page Word file full of ideas for more, so as long as people are still interested, I’ll keep going.

Thanks to everyone who has supported me this past year by visiting the site, commenting, re-tweeting, and so on. You make it worthwhile!

Let me know how you like my redesign and new features, and if there’s anything else you’d like to see from this blog.

    1. Thanks, Angela. I didn’t realize you had a food blog — with such beautiful photos and achievable looking recipes! I tried leaving a comment to that effect over there but I’m not sure it worked.


      1. Thanks, Rebecca! I moderate my comments because I get mostly spammers commenting. 🙂 I’ll look out for your comment and post. Thanks for checking out my blog!


  2. I’ve not been reading your blog for long, so I hadn’t seem most of the posts you mention. But it seems to me you’re doing rather well, one year on. Keep it up!


    1. Thank you, Margaret. (Even so, you’re one of my top few commenters!)
