2016 Accomplishments (Blog and Personal)

  • I posted 175 posts. That’s actually way more than I thought I did.
  • I reached 200 followers and am almost at 300.
  • Elizabeth Dahl, an author, found my blog and  gave me a Twitter shout out!!
  • I started High School
  • I read so many books that I lost track and failed my Goodreads challenge.
  • I made so many amazing blogging friends and friends in real life.
  • I finally got a Snapchat! (It’s my only social media okay?)

There was so much more that happened. These are just a few highlights.

Thank you guys so much for a fantastic 2016. My blog Random Reads grew so much. I learned and changed a lot. My blog content and style has changed too. Though most say stats don’t matter, mine have been wayyy down. I’m not too worried. I just hope people know that I am back and haven’t given up. Happy New Year once again. I hope everyone has a fantastic 2017. No matter what happens, 2016 is in the past now. That’s something we can be happy about.

    Happy New Year and congrats on the highlights of 2016! I’m so glad high school is a memory now, hahahaha. You’ve written a lot of posts, that’s awesome 🙂 I had a hard time keeping up with my schedule in 2016 so I’m hoping to find the right balance this year. Have a great and bookish 2017!

    Pft, stats are just data! Don’t worry about them. What matters is how YOU feel! I love reading your posts– keep it up! You’ll find a following soon enough. 🙂 Besides, you started high school?! You’ve got so much time. Some of us are planning their wedding O_o

    I have loved watching your blog grow, and I can’t wait to see what happens in 2017. 🙂 All the best to you!

      Thank you so much!! This made my day 🙂 I’m so happy that you enjoy my posts. I think I think about stats too much. I guess I do have a lot of time. It’s crazy to think that some bloggers have families and jobs while I’m just beginning High School. I can’t wait to see how it continues to grow. I’m excited to see what 2017 brings. Thank you! All the best to you as well 🙂
