Wow, yesterday my blog post about Jonathan Franzen’s novel The Corrections was chosen to be on WordPress’s Freshly Pressed page and since then I’ve had a lot of hits on this blog, a lot of Likes and a lot of wonderful comments on especially the Franzen post but also on some other posts. It has been amazing and I don’t want it to stop! I love reading all the comments and seeing how many hits I’ve got and how the number just goes up and up. Yesterday was huge – today has been twice as big and it’s still growing and it’s fantastic!
I’m so happy about all this. I love books. I’ve been reading always and it’s my favorite pass time. I started this book blog to meet people to talk about books with. In my day to day life, I don’t know a lot of people that read – or at least not read the same books I do. My best friend and my boyfriend are the two I talk the most about books with but both of them read rather different books than I do (horror and historical novels) so I enjoy going online to talk about books. I’ve been using Goodreads for 4 years now and I love it but this year I decided to branch out and start a book blog. And now I’ve made it to the WordPress Freshly Pressed page and – wow, it’s a mad ride!
So thank you to WordPress, thank you to everyone who has stopped by and please, please come again, hit the like buttons and make a lot of comments. 🙂
