Celebrating One Year of Blogging!

Hi everyone! Today is a VERY special day in my world! It's my first blogoversary!!! I am so excited that I have made it one year blogging. I can't believe how fast the time flew by!

Here are some stats:

Pageviews: 35,459 (OH MY GOODNESS! I remember when I hit 1000 pageviews and had a mini party for myself! That's insane!)
GFC Followers: 647 (I remember when I hit 100 and basically cried. This is insane! THANK YOU!)
Email Subscribers: 30
Linky Followers: 113
Networked Blogs Followers: 24
Top Three Country Visitors:
United States
14114
Canada
3719
United Kingdom
 2967

Posts: 245 (246 with this one!
Comments: 1062
Twitter followers: 528
Facebook likes: 171

Looking at those stats is just insane to me! I was talking to one of my friends yesterday and she was reminiscing about how happy I was when I reached 50 GFC followers, or how excited I had been when I finally put up a Facebook page for the blog. This year has been a roller coaster complete with loop-dee-doops and loop-dee-loops. There were definitely some struggles towards the end of 2012 with school, but I'm glad I decided to take a little break and just get back in the zone. Now I'm ready for 2013 to be absolutely incredible! I'm so excited to see what's in store for A Little Shelf of Heaven this year!

To start off the celebrations, I'm going to be doing TWO giveaways! Both will be international and both will hopefully be super duper awesome!

Before I sign off, I just wanted to say a big thank you to all of you! You guys have kept me going this year when I had writer's block, or school was really busy, etc. I love interacting with you guys and seeing your comments and (I'm gonna get back into this, I swear) commenting back! This first year of blogging has been great, and I can't wait for even more great years to come!

Good luck!

    I'd suggest that you have a review archive/index so that it will be easier for people to see what you've reviewed. =)

  20. Happy Blogoversary and congrats on your new design! It looks really great! Don't really have much advice (the blog is awesome as is), maybe a review archive? Also, maybe make blog posts that aren't necessarily about books, they could be about movies, TV shows you're watching or just updates on what's happening in your life. :)

Hi! Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! I appreciate every single comment I get! I will try as hard as I can to remember to stop by your blog and return the favour! (I'm so sorry if I forget, I have an awful memory!)

As of now, A Little Shelf of Heaven is an award-free blog! I really appreciate them, so so much, but I just don't have the time to pass them along to other blogs!

Thanks for stopping by! <3
