That’s right, Feed Your Fiction Addiction is 5 years old today, and honestly I couldn’t be prouder. Blogging has become such a huge part of my life—I’m so glad I’ve gotten to share it with you!
In the past five years, I’ve posted:
Over 1436 total posts (I’ve deleted spotlights from my early years, so it’s actually well over this number)
633 review posts (that’s the number of posts, not actually the number of books reviewed)
33 author top ten lists (mostly authors’ top ten addictions)
233 Sunday Posts (& Giveaways Galore!)
Also of Note:
- I’ve co-hosted the Book Blog Discussion Challenge for the past three years with Shannon @ It Starts at Midnight.
- And I’ve hosted the Monthly Wrap-Up Round-Up for two years.
- I’ve posted a master list of Reading and Book Blogging Challenges for the past three years.
- I’ve attended MANY bookish events, including BEA (twice), ALA, and RT, not to mention all the smaller events and signings I’ve had the privilege of attending.
- I’ve edited and/or proofread over 30 books! (Though I’ve now taken a break from editing so I can focus on writing.)
- I’ve won NaNoWriMo twice (and I’m working on editing those books!)
- I’ve gotten over 3400 Bloglovin’ followers and over 2400 Twitter followers. (Hmmm… I might need to celebrate when I get to 3500 and 2500. Maybe another giveaway?)
- I’ve failed at Instagram. (What? Just saying—it’s the truth.)
- I’ve met TONS of amazing people, including YOU!!
To celebrate my blogoversary, I’ve decided to give one of my loyal readers their choice of any book I’ve reviewed in the past five years (up to a $20 value). There are lots of fantastic books to choose from! This giveaway is open internationally as long as TBD delivers to you.
Wow 5 years!!! Congrats and happy blogoversary!
Thanks so much, Grace!
Congrats on 5 years. That is amazing. 😀
Thanks! I’m very happy about it!
Happy blogoversary! Five years is quite a feat!
Happy blogiversary! My blog is turning 5 this year, too, but it hasn’t done as awesomely as yours. 🙂
I LOVE your blog, AJ. Your humor makes me smile every single time. 🙂
Happy anniversary, Nicole. Isn’t blogging so much fun?
It definitely is!
5 years! Congrats! My blog turns 3 next month.
Happy early blogoversary to you, then. 🙂
Wow, five years, that is some dedication right there! I’m going to use this chance to also gush about your super-organized list of reviews: thank you so much for keeping it that way, because I can easily find what I’m looking for, which doesn’t always happen, let me tell you.
Here’s to more years of great blogging!!
Thank you so much for the giveway, too
I’m glad that you find the review list helpful. I agree that it’s frustrating when you can’t find what you want!
Congratulations on 5 years!! 🙂
Happy Blogiversary!!! You have accomplished so much in 5 short years!!
Thanks so much, Katisha!
Happy 5th Blogoversary!!!!!
Congratulations! Those review numbers are incredible. I don’t know where you find the time 🙂
Sometimes I don’t either. 😉
“Tell me how many years you’ve been blogging (or just wish me a happy blogoversary!).” Congratulations on this important milestone!
Happy Blog Birthday! I didn’t realize we started the same year! Mine was on Jan 29th. Glad to have found your blog! Wishing you many more years of awesome blogging ((hugs)))
Oh, wow, not just the same year, but almost at the same time!!
Congratulations, that’s a lot of blogging.
Happy Blogoversary!! I have been blogging since 2015. =D
Three years for you! That’s great!!
Congrats on blogging for five years! That’s awesome. I’ve been blogging for a little over 10 now, and I don’t see myself stopping anytime soon. 🙂
You’re one of those bloggers whose been around for the longest—I’m so impressed by your dedication!
Happy blogaversary! I’m so happy to have found you and love reading your reviews as well as discussion posts. Cheers to many more years of bookish posts!
Thanks, Danielle! I’ve enjoyed getting to know you through my blog!!
Wow, congrats and happy blogoversary! You’ve got me beat by 2x since I’ve been blogging for about 2.5 years now lol. And congrats on writing so many great posts and getting so many followers!
It’s interesting to see how long others have been at it. Some people who I feel have been around forever are newer than I realized and some people have had their blogs going for a LONG time and I’m so impressed!
Congrats on your blogoversary… 5 years huh?? I just hope I get to do this for as long as you have. Keep up with all the great work you do. i love your blog.
I hope you do too! It’s been a rewarding five years!
Congratulations!!! Happy 5 years Nicole!! I remember when I started blogging you were super helpful, including sending a welcome message on Book bloggers or some such forum I haven’t been on in an age, but it was nice to be welcomed. And here you are at 5 years! Enjoy your blogoversary 🙂
Oh, I remember that forum! I haven’t been on there for a long time either, but for a while I was trying hard to welcome every new member. It was a great way to make connections with people!
Happy blogoversary! Here’s to many more years!
Congrats Nicole!! Happy Blogoversary!! Hope you have many more happy blogging years to come! As you already know, I started blogging 9 years ago on Monday! 😀 Working up to that big 1-0 next year!!
I always think of you when I think of bloggers who have been sticking to it for a long time. Congrats again on your nine years!
Happy Blogoversary and thanks for the giveaway! 🙂
You’re very welcome!
Happy blogoversary! You’ve done so much in your five years! I had my 8th blogoversary last year, working on number 9! Thanks for the giveaway!
I didn’t realize you’d been blogging for so long. That’s impressive!!
Happy 5th Blogoversary! This next July it will be 11 years for me!
Wow! That’s a long time! Impressive!
Congratulations on 5 years of blogging! That’s an awesome accomplishment! 😀
Thanks so much!
Happy, happy blogoversay, Nicole! 5 years is quite an accomplishment! March will be 3 years for me – and little did I know how much work was involved. Haha!
I know, right? When I started blogging I thought it was just going to be a quick little diversion. I had no idea!
Happy 5th blogiversary! I love your blog ?
Thanks so much, Sue!
HAPPY BLOGOVERSARY, NICOLE!!! <3 I'm pretty sure Feed Your Fiction Addiction was one of the blogs I discovered during my first year of blogging, so it's AWESOME to see you hit 5 years!!! <3
Happy 5 years! You have a lot to be proud of 🙂
Thanks so much!
Five years is HUGE! Congratulations on your Blogoversary and I’m so thankful I discovered your blog years ago!! ♥
Thanks, Jen! I’ve loved getting to know you over the years as well!
I’m not really a stats person but when you have 5 years under your belt it becomes TOTALLY ENTHRALLING, lol. Good luck on your writing too, how exciting!
I don’t pay attention to my stats all that much during the year, but it’s fun to look back at the end of the year and see how things are stacking up!
Aww Nicole, 5 years is AWESOME! Congratulations! And so very many accomplishments, you should be quite proud of all you have done here. And thank you for allowing me to be a part of your journey, too- I love hosting the challenge with you and I am SO, so glad that we became friends ♥♥ Hoping for many more years to come!!
You are a bright spot in my blogging life, Shannon. I’m always thankful for you!
CONGRATULATIONS on 5 years of blogging! That’s such a long time. I hope there are many more years to come in the future as well ^.^ Thanks for the giveaway x
Thank you! In some ways, this five years went by so fast and in other ways it feels like it’s been a lifetime!
Happy blogiversary! 5 years is amazing!
CONGRATS ON 5 YEARS THAT’S SO AMAZING!! I think it’s awesome when blogs and bloggers last to this long!! *throws cake and confetti* Hope you have many more years of tremendous blogging ahead!
Thanks so much, Cait!
Wow, five years is definitely something to celebrate. I love your dedication to the blog and you’ve done so much in that time, it’s incredible. Here’s to a wonderful 5 years and much more to come. 😀
Thanks so much!
Well done , Amazing effort and thanks for celebrating by sharing books with us
Happy blogiversary!! And congrats on such a healthy and vibrant blog too. 🙂
Thank you! I’m really happy with what I’ve built these last five years!
Congratulations!! I can’t possibly hope to have so many followers in even five years 🙂 you rock!! I hope we see you still blogging 5 more years later too 🙂
Oh, you’ve already got a great thing going, so I would imagine you’ll be about my size in four years. Making those connections with other bloggers is the best way to do it!
I just finished my first year blogging, but WLABB has been around since May 2013. Happy 5 year anniversary and here’s to many more!
I didn’t realize you’d only been with WLABB for a year. I guess it’s because you’re the blogger I know best from your blog. 🙂
Happy blogoversary!! I didn’t know our blogs were the same age!
I didn’t realize it until your blogoversary post either. It’s always fun to figure out those sorts of things. 🙂
Congrats on hitting the five year mark! I am very impressed with how much you’ve done in that time, it’s crazy! When you look back on everything you’ve done in actual numbers it’s amazing, isn’t it? You’ve got me questioning when my blogoversary is now, I actually manage to forget about it every year. My poor blog, it probably feels very unloved.
Ha! Here’s a tip. Once you go back and figure out when you put up that first post, fill out my Book Blogger Birthday and Blogoversary form—that way, I’ll remind you of your blogoversary every year! LOL! (You’d be surprised how many people tell me they totally forgot about it when I tweet about their day.)
Happy Blogoversary Nicole! These are all awesome accomplishments! So many posts! It’s admirable that you were able to come up with over 150 topics of discussions! But what I think I admire the most is your dedication to this blogging community! Thank you for hosting all the wonderful features you host! They are SO IMPORTANT. They are the hub that keep so many of us connected ! and motivated to keep blogging. Love ya!
Oh, wow—those are such sweet words, Daniela, and I can’t even tell you how much I appreciate them. Honestly, if there is one thing that I want to be known for in the blogging community it’s that: bringing bloggers together and helping us feel connected. So this is high praise that means a lot to me!
Well it’s true! You do bring us all together so all the praise is well deserved. I hop you keep blogging for many years to come. 🙂
Awww. Thank you!
Wow, 5 years, what an incredible accomplishment! I hope you will keep on blogging and spreading love and positivity for many, many years to come 🙂 xx
Thanks so much, Marie! I plan to!
Happy 5th blogoversary!
Congratulations on 5 years. That’s amazing. I just celebrated my 4 years in blogging, January of this year. I’ve been a follower of your blog for 8months now. Found you via the Discussion Challenge. Thank you for hosting the challenge. It’s been fun!
The Discussion Challenge is one of my favorite parts of blogging, and I’ve met so many amazing bloggers through it!
Happy Blogoversary! I am going on 4 years in May. So I am not too far behind you. Hey, I meant to ask if you are going to BEA this year. I know it is far for you but I would love to see you again.
I’d love to see you too! I’m probably not headed to BEA this year because I’m hopefully going to be doing some sort of writing conference (and I can’t really justify the cost of both), but I’m not ruling it out completely!
Congrats on four years, Nicole! That’s an amazing achievement and I can’t wait to see your future posts! I recently hit my 4 year mark and it’s crazy to think I’ve kept up with a hobby for so long!
I agree—sometimes it seems crazy that I’ve been doing this so long!
Congrats on reaching 5 years!! That’s such a huge feat! Here’s to many more years! 🙂
I really enjoy your blog, especially when you list great discussions going on elsewhere also. I have found some more blogs to enjoy that way. congrats on 5 years
I’m so glad you’ve found other blogs to love through mine as well! Spreading the word is one of my favorite things to do!
Happy blogiversary and thanks for the amazing giveaway!
Thank you and good luck!
I’ve been blogging for 8 years, it feels like a lifetime and I love it.
It really does change your life in a lot of ways, right? Eight years is a long time!
Happy Blogoversary! Congrats on 5 years.
Thanks so much!!
Happy, happy, happy blogoversary ? and wishing you many more amazing to come!!
Thank you for a generous giveaway! ❤️
