Hi and welcome back to May rants: blogger appreciation edition!
I’m SUPER excited for this post, because it’s something I’m passionate about, and I spent a lot of time gathering information in order to write it. It’s also something I think isn’t talked enough about often, but has been discussed more recently!
I’m hoping that this discussion will be somewhat thought-provoking. I made a survey that I invited book bloggers, readers, and authors to take. I’ll be taking data from the survey itself and hopefully it’ll help people see how I and many others believe bloggers are underappreciated and DESERVE more appreciation!
Before I get started though, I want to first say a huge thank you to everyone who participated in the survey. I’m blown away by how many responses I got (a total of 143!). It really helped me make this post, and I had fun seeing the stats, like the nerd I am.
I really hope you guys find this post interesting, and I’m warning you in advance that it will be LONG!! As in, 3,000 words long!!!

Can you believe that I’ve been blogging for ONE YEAR???
I definitely can’t. Some days I feel like I’ve been blogging for soooo much loooonger (you probably have all felt this, thinking, “AGAIN” each time you see a new post from me), and then other times I feel like I’ve been blogging for such a short time that it can’t even possibly be one year yet??
But I’m in AWE that I’ve made it this far. I honestly wasn’t that doubtful I’d make it to a year because I fell in love with blogging as soon as I started, but it means SO much to have made it as far as I have??? I did NOT EXPECT THIS.
And I don’t sound like it, but I’m EXTREMELY EXTREMELY excited about today!!! So excited that I can’t even express it my excitement! Or maybe that’s me being at a loss of words like I always seem to be.
In “celebration” of 1. YEAR. OF. BLOGGING. I’ll be listing a few things that happened to me because of blogging this past year, and then talking about my new design (HAVE YOU NOTICED YET), giving a few shoutouts, and some other things!
I would’ve hosted a giveaway but I’m literally broke. So. NEXT YEAR. I PROMISE. MAYBE.
(Also the first part of this post was inspired by the lovely Beth @ Reading Every Night’s 2-Year Blogiversary post, which was so amazing to read!!)

There are only three things I like analyzing: 1) goals, 2) food, and 3) books.
Y’ALL I’M SO EXCITED FOR THIS POST YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW LONG I’VE BEEN WAITING TO DO THIS IT WAS SO MUCH FUN TO WRITE.
I’m sorry for being cringy but I rEALLY LIKE READING STATS OKAY.
I really love analyzing my reading stats, so today, I’m talking about my year of 2017 through BOOKS, aka my favorite things ever. It’s a HUGE post (because I had too much fun to stop), but hopefully you enjoy reading it as much as I did writing it???
I’M SORRY. I’M JUST SO NERDY.
This is my LAST POST in my mini-series “Goodbye 2017”, and if you click on those words, you can read ALL the posts in it! (Because linking them all is tiring and I’m lazy.)

Stats are quite controversial.
Some people think that you should never look at stats, while others believe you should look at them like a few times a week, and then others believe you should cHECK EVERY SECOND AND MAKE SURE YOU’VE GAINED ONE GAIN IN THE PAST NANOSECOND.
Obviously, I’m the last type. Except I check stats every millisecond.* Or nanosecond. Whichever’s smaller.**
Last week… or some time recent… (I’M SORRY I CAN’T KEEP TRACK OF TIME) I wrote a post about why I love blogging and in it, I talked about how I love good stats! That incited some discussion in the comments, and I’m so intrigued by it*** that I decided to write a whole post on it!
Well, a whole post on the general view on blogging stats and then MY view. Because everyone knows I like to insert myself in everything because I’m just that
I KNOW YOU’RE EXCITED.
*JUST KIDDING. I’m not that obsessive. I think.
**I don’t do math okay.
***Or I’m running out of post ideas,,, but yOU DIDN’T HEAR THAT FROM ME.
