2020 – Annual Report: A Recap of the Blog’s Activities

What a year! As we’ve all experienced so much this year on a personal level, I thought I’d just recap my Fictionophile blog – sticking just to the blogging facts.

I read 108 books and wrote 108 book reviews this year.

I took part in 17 blog tours during 2020.

I completed five reading challenges and made a valiant attempt at a sixth.

My Goodreads Challenge:

My #FFRC2020 Challenge:

My “What’s In A Name” Challenge:

My “20 Books of Summer Challenge(click this link to see what books I read for this challenge)

My Edelweiss Reading Challenge (the one I failed…)

My NetGalley Reading Challenge

Fictionophile garnered 2,697 comments in 2020 and was viewed 73,628 times.

I published 221 blog posts.

I reached a milestone of 4000 followers back in the middle of June and today
the blog has 4,251 followers.

I compiled a few short polls in early November and here are the results:I’ve been working at this blogging lark for five years now and will continue for at least a few more.

I fervently pray that 2021 will be a year that more than makes up for the past disastrous ten months. Wishing you all joy, good health, and happy reading.

  2. Interesting polls… I agree about less graphics (the GIFs give me a headache), but I do miss having the book cover when someone posts a review. That bothers me!

    • Davida, I too am not a fan of animated gifs, though I think I may have used them once or twice. I was referring to the still graphics that I incorporate into my reviews as a way of illustration. And yes, certainly, the cover art is essential in my opinion. Thanks. 😍

    Fantastic post Lynne. I don’t agree with people who say they want less graphics on your posts, I love them. I also love Cover Lover posts! You did well on your challenges. I need to post my wrap up, probably on the 31st because I still have a couple of books to finish to complete a couple of challenges. I also wish you a better 2021, with things getting back to normal. Happy New Year to you and your family.

  10. What a great wrap-up of your reading year – I’m so impressed that you reviewed as many books as you read. I always aspire to that and never manage it. I hope 2021 is filled with wonderful books.

    Impressive! Interesting challenges too. I like the way they encourage the reader to try new kinds of books, which maybe they might not otherwise read.
