I was just sitting back, feeling rather smug about being up-to-date with my reviews, and wondering what to do next. I really need to do a proper index of the books I’ve reviewed, maybe some links to the reviews that have been published on author/publisher sites, think about some features (publishers maybe? favourite authors?) and I never did get round to doing my “books of the year” for 2013. Maybe I could even get round to doing that post I’ve been promising myself – and open a new page – sharing my plans for when I take early retirement on 7th March…
Then something caught my eye – my ticker’s quite a long way down on my home page and I don’t see it very often! It’s actually my first blogoversary in 7 days’ time, and I nearly missed it!
And then I noticed something else – my blog is fast approaching 20,000 views, something I can hardly believe. Makes it all worthwhile, doesn’t it?
I just wanted to thank everyone who has read my blog so far – and commented on it, retweeted links to it, written about it on Facebook – and a special thank you to the authors and publishers who have kept it so well supplied over the last year.
I really should be doing something special to celebrate. When I do retire (have I mentioned I’m retiring?!) I’m planning to spend a lot more time and effort on building the blog into what I always wanted to be. So I think I’ll delay the celebration just a little – and I promise to begin with a really good splash… I just need to think what it can be!
