We've come a long way, baby!

It's my blogiversary!!!!

The month of May marks one year since I swung open the doors to this blog and invited you all to share my obsession with inspirational romance, edgy or otherwise.

Care to stroll down memory lane with me?

My first real post: The one where I'm all wet behind the ears.

My favorite post: Anything Serena writes, like this or this. Seriously, this chick just cracks me up. Are you following her on twitter yet? Why not?

Top 3 most popular posts (based on page views):
1. What is Edgy Christian Romance?
2. Vampires in Christian Fiction.
3. Stalking Julie Lessman

Number of Kindle subscribers: 1 (and it's not my mom, I asked)

Shout out to my one anonymous reader. Thank you for subscribing and I hope you're enjoying the content.

My favorite part of blogging:

Meeting such wonderful people. I have a great circle of bloggers and authors I call friends.

Biggest surprise about blogging:

The time commitment. I had no idea. I have no immediate plans to expand to daily blogging, but I feel a sense of obligation to continue posting at the same level I started. In order to keep up, I've had to look for help. You've met Serena and Julia, but I'm adding one more person who I'll introduce this month.

How my style has evolved:

When I first started, I pictured this blog would be about both writing and reading related subjects. Since then, I've put the writing topics on the back burner. I might bring them back, but right now the focus is really on the books I read, not the writing I do.

What's coming up:

To celebrate my blogiversary, I have giveaways galore. They kick off tomorrow as I take part in the Spring Carnival.

This week I'm also introducing a new feature. I have three of our favorite authors stopping by to review some of their choices in Christian fiction. There will be a giveaway for friends who show up to support my celebrity reviewers.

Giveaways going on now:
These giveaways are open right now! Click on the book to visit the post and leave a comment!
