Feed Your Fiction Addiction turned eight yesterday, so it’s time to celebrate! Blogging is a huge part of my life, and I almost can’t remember the “before.” Thank you to everyone who’s been part of this journey with me!
In the past eight years, I’ve posted:
Over 1972 total posts (I’ve deleted some over the years, so it’s actually well over this number.)
1082 reviews (Some of these were made private when I changed my review policy.)(12 of them were dual reviews with friends!)
Over 432 giveaways
46 author top ten lists (mostly authors’ top ten addictions)
384 Sunday Posts (which include pre-order deals & giveaways from around the blogosphere)
6 April Fools’ posts (I didn’t do one this year because I just wasn’t in that sort of mood on April 1st with the pandemic and all)
Also of Note:
- Just last week I added a Book Pre-Order Campaign Page (after featuring pre-order campaigns in my Sunday Posts since the beginning of 2016. I’ll still feature new ones there.)
- I’ve co-hosted the Book Blog Discussion Challenge for the past six years with Shannon @ It Starts at Midnight.
- And I’ve hosted the Monthly Wrap-Up Round-Up for five years and Shannon joined me last year as well.
- I’ve posted a master list of Reading and Book Blogging Challenges for five years (though I did take a hiatus from it in 2019).
- I’ve done one major redesign of the blog, and last year I updated my fox girl with purple hair to match mine. 🙂
- I’m an SCBWI co-rep, I’ve been a Cybils judge for the last two years, and I’m an Author Mentor Match round 8 co-mentor.
- I’ve attended four SCBWI (Society of Children’s Book Writers & Illustrators) conferences and one WIFYR (Writing & Illustrating for Young Readers) workshop conference.
- 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 4500 blog followers, 3200 Twitter followers, and over 760 Instagram followers.
- I’ve edited and/or proofread over 35 books. (Though I’ve mostly hung up my editing hat in the last two years).
- I’ve written two complete novels (at least up to a first draft) and am finishing a third.
- I’ve met TONS of amazing people, including YOU!!
To celebrate my blogoversary, I’m giving one lucky winner your choice of ANY BOOK YOU WANT (up to a $20 value). All giveaways are open internationally as long as TBD delivers to you.
