One Year Anniversary!

It’s a bit difficult to believe, but today marks the one-year anniversary of my first review on The Past Due Book Review.

Here we are; 43 book reviews, 15 editorials, and 263 total followers later.

I will keep this brief, but thank you again to everyone who has read my writing on here. I wasn’t sure if this blog would get much traction, but I have enjoyed every moment so far (even the daily revisions in preparation of posting) and I believe this blog makes for a unique record of how my writing has improved in the last year.

So here’s a rare picture of my cats getting along and one final thank you to all of my readers! I look forward to another year of reviews and writing!

Well, here we are again celebrating growth on the blog. I will keep this rather short since the book I am currently reading is taking up a lot of my time and attention, but thank you all for coming to my little corner of the internet.

I appreciate that you take the time to read my work on here since it is all done in my free time and knowing that there are those who enjoy what I love to do makes my heart happy.

As a reward for your continued loyalty, here is a picture of my skinny cat. Her name is Nina, she is 12 years old, and she thinks she is queen of the castle. She was totally okay with me taking this picture of her despite the apprehension and annoyance apparent in her face. She also rubs her face on electrical outlets when the mood strikes her.

Thank you again to my 101 followers on WordPress.com, the 48 on my blog’s Facebook page, and the 30 on my Twitter. Here’s to the next 100!

Also, I don’t only wear white t-shirts. I realize that most of the update photos feature me in a white tee and that is pure coincidence. If you didn’t notice, then no worries!

I want to say thank you so much to those of you on here who read my blog. I wasn’t sure how successful it would be due to my lengthy posts, but seeing you all reading my work really warms my heart, along with other clichés I can’t think of right now.

This was a milestone I wasn’t sure I would reach this year since starting my blog back in May. I realize that there are thousands, if not millions, of other book review blogs and the fact that even one person enjoys my writing, let alone fifty people, really lifts my spirits.

I don’t write listicles or post content from other sources as the main topic of my blog and I realize that this significantly narrows my readership, but I truly appreciate you taking the time to read my words.

As a reward for your loyalty, here is a picture of my fat cat. His name is Hunter, he is 14 years old and weighs 16 lbs. He might even live to 15 if he would STOP RUBBING HIS FACE AGAINST ELECTRICAL OUTLETS
