Three years ago on March 5th, 2016 my little blog The Tattooed Book Geek was born. It is hard to believe that I have stuck with blogging for three whole years but, well, I have and I am still here! 🙂
My stats for three years of blogging are:
- 943 posts (this is number 944).
- 24,186 comments.
- 58,178 likes.
- 209,256 page views.
I sometimes have a love/hate relationship with blogging and bloggers (some of you anyway), I’m definitely on the outskirts of the community and I will never be one of the cool kids or popular, I constantly doubt the quality of what I post and honestly, I am shocked that anyone actually reads what I write! I know that those stats are terrible compared to most but as someone who doubts themselves, looking at them I don’t think that I have done too badly with my blog. Somehow, I have even managed to get on a couple of publishers mailing lists, get quoted in a few books and get quoted on the back of a couple of books too.
I don’t know what the future holds or how much longer I will continue to keep blogging. I guess we shall see but for these past three years having a blog has given me something to do. I have had the pleasure of reading some truly wonderful books and sharing my thoughts on them with you all, my blog has been an outlet for me and it has let me be part of a wonderful (mostly) community of fellow readers.
So, I just wanted to say thank you to you all.
To EVERYONE who has ever visited my blog. Those who have come before, those who no longer visit, those who have read, liked, commented on and/or shared any of my posts over the past three years and those that continue to do so. Those of you who have reached out to me, my fellow bloggers, the readers, the publishers, the publicists who send me books (crazy, right) and the authors who write so that I can read. Oh, of course, I nearly forgot, I can’t forget the haters as I have some haters too!
For all of your support, truly, I appreciate it more than words, thank you.
