I found the “Celebrating the Little Things” tag through my online friend Misty on her site at mistysbookspace. She had great answers and is a cool blogger, so please check out her site. I thought it was a fun idea, but then I also realized I had 300 WordPress followers earlier today… so I’m combining them together and sharing my answers to the questions.
1.) Who was your first follower? Tag them and give them a shout out.
My first follower was Cristian. His blog has content on almost every topic and has thousands of followers. A definite good guy to know who interacts with everyone on his blog. Go check out the link to his site.
2.) What was the last milestone you reached?
I noticed this morning that I had 300 followers over night. I also had my highest day yesterday in terms of views and likes. It’s a surprising and big celebration this week!
3.) What was the very first post you posted on your blog? Share it with us, if you can find it out!
My first blog was neither a book review nor a random blog post; it was an introduction to the book I am currently in review on with an agent. You can read the post and the overview of the book here: Watching a Glass Shatter
4.) Who was your most recent follower? Tag them and give them a shout out.
My most recent follower was earlier today. His name is Erik and has a great site called PastDueBookReview. I found 3 reviews within the first few minutes that I immediately read.
5.) What was the last post you posted and who was the first person who took their time to click the like button? Give them a shout out.
I wrote a short book review on Mockingjay, the third book in The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins. Claire at BrizzleLassBooks was the first person to like the post. We met about a month ago and have had several great online comments and exchanges about books and blogging. I highly recommend checking out her site.
6.) How many months have you been blogging?
I created the blog last summer and had my first post in August of 2016, which puts me just shy of the 9 month mark. I didn’t do too much those first two months, but started actively blogging in October of 2016.
7.) Do you have any bloggers you’re friends with? Give them a shout out!
I have not yet met anyone in person; however, I’d totally be up for a NYC meet-n-greet if anyone lives nearby. I’ve met a few folks who I regularly chat with in each other’s posts and who are very friendly and give sound advice. I’ve listed the 5 with the most comments on my site!
10.) Last but not least… Just give thanks to all of your followers!
Getting 300 WordPress blog followers (excluding people viewing elsewhere, e.g. BlogLovin’, Twitter, etc.) feels great. It’s not as many as some of you have, but it’s growing and I’m loving every minute of it. Thank you for all the likes, shares, follows, votes and ratings. I appreciate it very much. And I’m always open to positive and negative feedback, as well as thoughts on new things to include.
I’m Jay and I live in NYC. By profession, I work in technology. By passion, I work in writing. Once you hit my site “ThisIsMyTruthNow” at https://thisismytruthnow.com, you can join the fun and see my blog and various site content. You’ll find book reviews, published and in-progress fiction, TV/Film reviews, favorite vacation spots and my own version of the “365 Daily Challenge.” Since March 13, 2017, I’ve posted a characteristic either I currently embody or one I’d like to embody in the future. 365 days of reflection to discover who I am and what I want out of life… see how you compare! Each month, I will post a summary of a trip I’ve taken somewhere in the world. I’ll cover the transportation, hotel, restaurants, activities, who, what, when, where and why… and let you decide for yourself if it’s a trip worth taking.
