One Year Blogoversary!

Birthday ClipartHey Everyone!

Today HeySaidRenee turns one! Wow, it's been a whole year already!

I first started this blogging journey as a way to get free books and a way to share how I got free books with others. What I found was, yes, lots of free books, but also a whole new world. There is such a wonderful blogging community out there that I had no idea about. I went in blind, I'd never even read a book blog before I decided to start one. I've made so many supportive friends among the bloggers and authors I've met online through HeySaidRenee. I've had the pleasure of meeting a couple of them in real life and hope to meet many more in the future.

Writing a blog was never a plan of mine, I started it on a whim, but I've managed to post almost everyday for a year now. Another whim I decided to follow a couple of months ago, was to write a novel. I'm somewhere in the middle of my very first, first draft.  I'd like to focus more of my writing energy into the novel, so I plan to reduce my blog post frequency to several times a week instead of everyday.

Well, here are the stats from the past year.

The total number of pageviews - 37,000
