That’s right, Feed Your Fiction Addiction is six years old today, and I feel like celebrating! This book blog has led to so many amazing things in my life, and I’d like to say thank you to all of you who have taken the journey with me.
In the past six years, I’ve posted:
Over 1508 total posts (I’ve deleted some, so it’s actually well over this number)
889 reviews (some of these were deleted when I changed my review policy)
Over 352 giveaways
35 author top ten lists (mostly authors’ top ten addictions)
281 Sunday Posts (which includes pre-order deals & giveaways from around the blogosphere)
Also of Note:
- I’ve co-hosted the Book Blog Discussion Challenge for the past four years with Shannon @ It Starts at Midnight.
- And I’ve hosted the Monthly Wrap-Up Round-Up for three years.
- I’ve posted a master list of Reading and Book Blogging Challenges for the past four 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 gotten over 3700 Bloglovin’ followers and over 2600 Twitter followers.
- I’ve failed at Instagram. (What? Just saying—it’s the truth.)
- I’ve attended two SCBWI (Society of Children’s Book Writers & Illustrators) conferences and one WIFYR (Writing & Illustrating for Young Readers) workshop conference.
- I’ve edited and/or proofread over 30 books! (Though this year I took a break from editing so I can focus on writing.)
- I’ve won NaNoWriMo twice.
- I finished a “final(ish)” draft of the MG novel and started querying it.
- I finished my first draft of the YA novel
- I’ve met TONS of amazing people, including YOU!!

Congrats on 6 years, blogging is a lot of work and I really appreciate you taking the time to do it (and keep such an organized blog, I’m a sucker for that)
Aw, thank you. It’s nice to hear that people appreciate it.
Six years is an amazing accomplishment. I think I was following you since maybe your 2nd year, and I am so happy you are still here. XOXO
Thanks for hanging out with me for so long! 🙂

Aw, thank you, Daniela! I’ve loved my six years of blogging!
Happy blogiversary! My blog is turning 6 this year, too, but I don’t have nearly as many followers as you.
Somehow my blog grew really quickly at the beginning, and I also think the Discussion Challenge has helped me grow. I’m very thankful for all my followers, but sometimes I think there’s some weird voodoo involved in the numbers.
Happy 6th blogoversary!!!!!!
Happy blogoversary! Six years is awesome! Here’s to 6 more awesome years!
Congratulations on six years, Nicole! Such a great achievement! I will have been blogging for ten years in March, and I’m so excited to celebrate! Happy Blogoversary!
Ten years is such a huge milestone. Congrats! (almost 🙂 )
I wish you a Very Happy Blogoversary!
HAPPY BLOGOVERSARY!!! Congrats on the 6 years!! That’s awesome!!! Pretty sure I’ve been following you for that long too! I was just celebrating my own blogoversary and asking people how they found my blog, if they remembered, a lot couldn’t! And when I think on it…I can’t remember how I followed everyone either! It had to start at one blog and then seeing their blog roll on the side and other rec’s coming in like that! One leads to another and then another and then three others and then it’s just good crazy chaos!
Yes you were definitely one of my first followers. I remember that for sure!
Happy blogoversary to you!!! Awesome milestone and congrats especially on your writing accomplishments! I hope the querying and writing goes well for you. Glad you’re still around this crazy community. 🙂
Happy Blogoversary!!! <3
Congratulations of six years of Feed Your Fiction Addiction! Here’s to many more! Happy Blogoversary!
Thank you so much!
Yay! Happy blogoversary Nicole! 🙂 I’m so happy for you 🙂
Thank you, Megan!
Happy blogoversary!! Yours is one of my favorite blogs and I love that we’ve had the chance to work together as well. I hope you have many happy years of blogging ahead of you!
I agree that I’m really thankful we got to work together!
Happy blogoversary! You’ve accomplished so much in six years! It feels like you’ve been around longer, haha. You’ve just been a solid part of my blogging experience since I came back, so it feels like you’ve always been there. You put so much effort into your blog, posts, features — everything. It really shows, and it’s really appreciated! I hope you continue blogging for many more years. <3
Lindsi @ Do You Dog-ear? ?
In some ways I feel like I’ve been blogging for even more years, and in some ways it’s flown by. I suppose that’s how it works with everything.
You probably put more time and energy into this than many people do to their full time jobs. And it shows–you are so reliably positive and involved and supportive. (Checking Goodreads also let me know you have a birthday coming up–woo-hoo!) Congratulations and many happy returns of the day.
Thank you, Wendy. I do put a lot of time and effort into my blog, so it’s nice to know that it’s appreciated.
Congratulations on your anniversary again! And 889 reviews? Just think of all those publishers and authors you’ve been supporting with all the reviews you’ve shared over the years. Absolutely amazing. You should be proud of all you have achieved and done ^.^
That number did make me really happy. I love sharing my thoughts on books with the world!
Congrats on your 6th blogoversary, Nicole. This is so exciting! I enjoyed seeing the progress you’ve made with your blog. It’s amazing what one can accomplish in 6 years 🙂
It’s really nice to take a look back now and again and assess where I’ve been and where I’m heading.
Congratulations on you blogoversary. Here’s to another 10 year plus years. Thank you for the giveaway too.
Hi Nicole! Congratulations on six years of blogging — wishing you many more to come! ?
Thank you so much!
Happy blogoversary, dear! It’s great to see your blog and followers growing. Hoping that this year will be a great one!
Ahhh congratulations, 6 years of blogging, what an incredible accomplishment! It is so great to see how many posts and reviews you’ve written in so much time, that’s incredible. I hope you’ll keep on blogging and most importantly, keep on loving it for a long time 🙂
Happy Blogoversary!! <3
Even during some of my slower blogging times, I’ve never lost my love of blogging (I don’t think I’ve ever gone more than a week without posting—and that was when I was on vacation and I had to force myself to step away). 🙂
Congratulations!!! Six years is seriously such an incredible accomplishment! Also, all the cool kids fail at Instagram, I am convinced this is true (or maybe I am telling myself so, but either way 😉 )
I’m going with your take on Instagram. It makes me feel better. I just don’t have the time or the patience to set up huge photoshoots that don’t end up looking all that great because my artistic eye is non-existent.
Congrats on six years! You’ve accomplished so much, and you’re absolutely amazing. I love that I’ve been able to meet you in person, and I hope I can see you again soon-ish. ALA comes back to Chicago next year so *fingers crossed*.
Oooh! I actually hadn’t realized that ALA was back in Chicago next year. I will certainly be there!!
Congratulations on six years! I really enjoy your blog, especially that you feature both middle-grade and YA titles, since I’m interested in reading a little of everything.
Thank you! It’s nice to know that I have readers who enjoy both.
Happy Blog birthday! congratulations, loving reading your blog x
Happy Blogoversary!!! 😀
Happy Blogiversary! You’ve accomplished so much in the last 6 years, it’s amazing! Cheers to many more!
Thank you, Jen!
Six years is something to be proud of – congrats!
happy blogoversary! well done you xx
Happy blogoversary! Congrats on 6 years. ?
I prefer the form Blogiversary, so happy blogiversary! 6 years, that’s good! and to many more!
Actually, it’s funny but I prefer blogiversary too now since it matches anniversary better. But for some reason when I started out, I saw blogoversary and that’s what I used. I considered changing it, but I have lots of graphics and posts and calendars (with other bloggers’ special days), and it would be a real pain to change everything. So now I’m stuck with it. LOL!
Happy anniversary! I just recently found you and am so happy I did! So much useful information!
Welcome!! I’m glad you found me!
Happy Blogaversary. Thanks for all the wonderful content. I love reading your blogs
Happy Blogoversary! Time sure does fly. Here’s to more great books in the future!
Congrats on your blogoversary!
Thank you!! And congrats to YOU on winning the giveaway!!!
Thank you so much Nicole and for going out of your way to accommodate me! I have some serious reading to get to this weekend with my new book.
You’re very welcome!! I hope you love your new book!!
Happy, happy, happy blogoversary and wishing you many more amazing to come!! ?
Thank you for a generous giveaway!! ❤️️
Thanks so much!
yay congrats and happy blogiversary!!??
