Happy Birthday to Taking on a World of Words!

5 Sep

1YearThat’s right folks, this is my 1 year blogoversary! This little blog here is a whole year old. If this blog was a person, it would be able to:

  • Stand on its own two feet, maybe even take a step or two
  • Eat with its fingers
  • Sleep through the night
  • Drink cow’s milk instead of sucking life forces from my body
  • Say ‘mama’

So yeah, if this blog was a person, it would be on its way to some independence. And I think, in a way, it is starting to get there. It’s getting it’s feet under it for sure and there are a few words (or search terms) that it’s starting to claim for its own.

But because I love numbers, I’m going to leave you with a bunch of those, even though it’s really for my enjoyment. And remember, these are approximate because they change by the second!

So there’s some fun facts about the blog you didn’t know before. Who knew I was an expert on The Light Between Oceans?! Cool beans.

I want to thank each of you reading this from the bottom of my heart for making blogging such a great experience for me. I’ve come to love it and I get excited every day when my posts go up so I can see what you all have to say. This has become a passion of mine and I’m glad to share it with every one of you.

Leave a comment! Leave an idea! Tell me something you want to see more of, less of, none of, etc. I want to know what could make this blog even better so that in another year, y’all will have told your friends about this awesome blog that they just have to follow. I want to know what you think.

Until next time, write on.

You can follow me on Goodreads, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram. I’m available via email at SamAStevensWriter@gmail.com. And as always, feel free to leave a comment!

    Happy blogoversary! You’ve certainly put a great deal of effort and love into this blog when looking at the numbers you’ve shared; good for you! I know it’s rewarding at least for me. Also, while I don’t comment as often as I should, I do read your posts and enjoy them 🙂 and I’m also so so happy we’ve become friends through the blogsphere 🙂

    Will be chatting more soon in the coming weeks!

      Thank you, Claudia! It’s easy to devote time to my blog when I gat so much out of it from readers. I’m very excited to start our new read along soon! It’s sure to be a great book.

    Congrats on your Blogoversary! I certainly have enjoyed following you and been very impressed with what you have to say about reading and writing. I love the variety of your blogs and all the thought and personality you infuse in each, but I especially enjoy your pieces that involve your book club reflections and your writing insights. You are a super star!

      Thank you so much! I’ve been in a book club dry spell but I promise it’s ending soon: we have another meeting in Monday! I’ve been bad about going to my critique groups but I can try getting back into it. I’m glad you enjoy those posts! And thank you again for reading.
