4th Blogoversary Celebration + Giveaway!

Hi everyone! I can’t believe it’s been four years since I started this book blog. I love it so much and I hope to keep going with it for as long as possible!

Yesterday I held my Third Annual Bonus Points Awards, and today I want to share some of the things that have happened to me and the blog over the past year, plus have a giveaway!

What’s Happened at The Overstuffed Bookcase This Past Year

Instead of listing all my stats for the past year like I’ve done before, I just decided to list some highlights. (Note: The first number is the data for the past year, and the second number is the total number as of January 10, 2016 for my blog.)

Unfortunately, my blog didn’t grow much at all this past year (with the exception of my Facebook page-399 new likes!), but that is to be expected since I was spending most of the year taking care of a baby and not being able to interact as much as I’d have liked. But now I’m finally getting back into the habit of commenting regularly and I hope my blog will see a lot more growth in 2016! But I am happy with all of the new things that I started on the blog this year, as well as the events I co-hosted. I like trying out new features and doing new, creative things!

I also want to thank each and every one of you who have visited my blog, and also to those of you who leave comments. Without you and the book blogging community, book blogging wouldn’t be as rewarding as it is, and I most likely wouldn’t have been here this long. So thanks so much to all of you!
