Hey guys! Just wanted to give a quick thank you for 500 followers! Insane!
I honestly had no clue that I’d gain this many followers within a year, nor did I understand how big WordPress really was.
Guess I’ll tell the story of how my blog came to be, though it’s pretty simple, haha.
I was on reddit one day and came across an authors post offering his book for free, for a few days. Seeing that it was a genre I enjoyed, I grabbed it and began reading it that same day. I did however notice it had no reviews. After finishing the book, and enjoying it, I felt the need to leave a review on Amazon. As days passed, I kept checking on the books review count, and saw that it stayed at one. Mine. Why? This book is awesome, it needed to be found.
I remembered years back I had won a couple book giveaways on a bloggers site, who goes by the name Wordspelunking. I thought the idea of blogging and reviewing was pretty neat, and wanted to try it for myself.
I spent some time looking at books, picking out ones I’d read and review, or have already read. But these were well known books. Books that were on the front page. I kept thinking about how the book I recently reviewed sat on that one review. It was then that I decided that I’d review books for indie authors. After reading so many books by indie authors this year, I’m glad I chose to do so. I’ve read many amazing stories, and can’t wait to read more. I had hoped to gain a following big enough to give those indie authors some more attention, and I’m excited and relieved that my blog is helping. I’ll continue to visit indie authors worlds, reviewing, and trying to grow.
I’ve had a blast being here. The community is amazing. I appreciate all my commentors, followers and friends I’ve made on here. Really, thank you guys for sticking around. I have many years to look forward to, and I’m happy I’m here with you.
