    Congratulations, Shelly Rae. Mid-January will be my 5-year anniversary, but my numbers don’t compare to yours. Nicely done.

    Congratulations! They’re rather spectacular statistics that have obviously taken many hours of effort on your part. Well done for your hard work and sticking with it—blogging isn’t as easy as it looks!

    Woo Hoo! Five years, no mean feat…And the person who should be showered with plaudits and prizes is YOU. I am sure I am not alone when I say you have been inspirational in terms of introducing me to new authors, getting me to read outside my comfort zone (and enjoy the experience) and making me aware of the world of modern Australian writing.
    So a BIG thank you to you, and here’s to the next 5 years!

    Congratulations on 5 years! That’s amazing, I’ve only started book blogging myself and the biggest challenge for me is probably gaining people to read my blog… any advice on that?
