The day is almost gone and I was thisclose to forgetting to mark the anniversary of my opening up shop here on WordPress. Eleven years ago I wrote my first post and have maintained a steady schedule since then. I posted 280 times that first year and it was my most prolific. Since then it’s gone done a bit every year with last year clocking in at 113. Amazingly, the number of views and visitors while taking a dive in 2016 has gone up considerably the last two years.
I didn’t start this blog to crunch numbers and I don’t stick around because a few more people have found their way here. I’m still here writing and connecting because of you, my fellow book nerds. May we continue to support each other for many more years to come 🙂
