The Worm Hole’s Second Birthday

In many ways it feels I’ve been book blogging longer (I guess writing so many reviews is bound to do that), in many ways shorter, but I’m just glad I’ve managed to stick it out.

Since 4th April 2010, this blog has had 239 posts published, of which 109 are reviews. That second statistic really surprised me, as I’d thought it would be nearer to 90. And there have been 349 comments – again another surprising statistic, I’d thought there would be a lot less considering I’m hardly a prolific blogger.

While reading and writing reviews may take time, I can’t help but be thankful for what it has helped me to achieve and for the roads it has created. Reading made up a big part of the reason I decided to go to university, because I found myself analysing in the ways a historian should, and writing reviews helped prepare me for essays. Blogging has led to various interesting events and introduced me to many treasures I never would have found otherwise.

Thank you all for the discussion, the comments, the recommendations and reviews that have improved my reading life, and for being there. No matter how much or how little I’ll be able to blog in the near future, I’m looking forward to the next year.

Happy blogging anniversary, Charlie! Here’s to many more years. Blogging has also added plenty to my life, so I can relate to your post a lot.

Charlie: Thanks Ana! Taking a break from study and focusing on the blog has showed me that something I can’t imagine not having in future!

Happy blogoversary! I know what you mean about it feeling a lot longer – it feels as though I’ve been blogging my whole adult life, but I’ve only been doing it for a few years. I guess that is what happens when you enjoy doing something and can’t see it ending. Here’s to many more happy years of blogging ;-)

Charlie: You’re right Jackie, yet we too often think that something enjoyable ends up feeling shorter, weird that!
