Third Blogiversary!

My lovely readers, do you know that yesterday, (May 23rd), it was the third blogiversary of Between the Pages of This Bookish Life (formally A Writer's Heart)?

That's right! Three years ago, in May of 2014, I set up a blog and wrote a review for Jaye L. Knight's Resistance, posting it as my very first blog post!

Can you believe it? Three years have past since I started my first blog, which effectively started my journey of reviewing books, publishing, and just being part of the wonderful blogger/writer/reader/fangirl world. ^_^

I've met so many amazing people! All of you who have followed my blog, commented here, shared my posts, or even followed me on other social media, you guys are the best! I appreciate it! Thanks for welcoming me and helping me become part of the blogger world! Thank you for supporting me. <3

Now, for some statistics. (Which may not be that great, but make me excited, anyway! *grins*)

Total Pageviews: 95,985

Pageviews per Month: 2,500-3,000 (approx.)

Google+ Followers: 87

Blogger Followers: 28

Blog Posts: 431

Book Review Posts: 224

I've gotten pageviews from mostly the United States (73,208), but also Russia, Germany, France, Canada, Ukraine, Australia, United Kingdom, Brazil, Japan, Ireland, Portugal, Uganda, India, etc.


I was going to do a big celebration with a fantastic giveaway and all, but it turns out May came too quickly and I'm rather too busy and money-less to do such a thing! Haha. Maybe next year. *winks*

However, in honor of my blogiversary, I did decide to make the Kindle edition of A DREAM NOT IMAGINED free on for today (25th) until the 29th! Download your copy today! And don't forget to leave an honest review on Amazon and Goodreads! (Click the cover below to be brought to the site).

Anyway, thanks for following my blog! Especially those of you who endeavored to find it after I took the 'h' out of the blog address, (, confusing everyone! I hope you all have found me again! *smiles*

Share your blogs and Youtube channels and such below, so I can follow YOU!

    1. THANK YOU, DEBORAH! <333 It's pretty exciting, and makes me think about just how very much I love blogging!

      Ah, that's terrible! I've actually had a few other people tell me they're not getting email notifications either! I'm not sure what's wrong or what can be done about it ... Weird. :(

      But I'm glad you find time to stop by, my friend! ^_^

    2. I just tried signing up with a different email, so we'll see if that does anything. XD
