Happy 4th Birthday to Taking on a World of Words!

11 Sep

You guys, it’s been four years! Yes, it really has. I’m surprised, too! I wonder how long I’ll keep this up. Thank you for caring what I have to say four years later (even if you haven’t been reading this for that long). You all make blogging fun and that’s why I’m still doing this.

One of my rituals on my blogoversary is to think what my blog would be able to do if it were a child. Blogs are much cheaper and less time consuming, I know, but it’s still fun to think about.


  • Learn that behaviors have consequences
  • Make attempts to read and write
  • Learn to write its name
  • Sit through dinner at a restaurant
  • Get dressed with minimal supervision
  • Pump its legs on a swing

One more year until Kindergarten! Maybe I’ll put it in preschool to get a little me-time for a while.

Yet again, here are some numbers to show my blog’s growth over the past year. Numbers are taken from 10-Sep, so five days after my blogoversary. It came on so fast I didn’t have time to celebrate right away.

Wow, you guys! This is a lot of change, more than I expected to see. It’s obvious reviewing a classic like The Tempest brought in a lot of people looking for help with school assignments, haha. It’s also clear that visual media like the Thirteen Reasons Why and Handmaid’s Tale TV shows made a lot of people interested in the books and reviews of them. I’m looking forward to some more releases in the next year that will bring similar readers to my blog. Welcome to those who came through these posts!

Thank you all so much for reading along with my reading adventures. I love sharing a love of books with you all. You make finishing a book even more exciting!

Until next time, write on.
