Love-a-thon Wrap Up

loveathon-1

Well guys, Love-a-thon has come to a wrap, which means I am a sad panda. But I had a lot of fun this weekend connecting with SO many book bloggers from various platforms. It’s truly amazing to me to see such wonderful, creative, beautiful people with a love for books as strong as mine.

So I wanted to talk about the things I did, what I’ve learned, a few stats, and I wanted to give some awesome shoutouts to a lot of book people whom I’m following and who I connected with this weekend!

The Challenges

This was one of my favorite parts of the whole event. I had so much fun not only doing the challenges, but also checking out a lot of peoples’ challenges as well!

What I’ve Learned

I think one of the biggest takeaways from this event was how much I learned from participating.

  • There are SO MANY book bloggers/grammers/tubers out there! It’s amazing to see just how many people there are that come to events like this and join in the fun.
  • The book community is a very open, welcoming, warm, loving place, and I couldn’t have asked for a better event to be a part of to see just how true this statement is.
  • I’ve learned that there’s such a variety of styles and tastes as far as reading goes. Not everyone likes the same books or characters, and that’s fine! We can all still fangirl and respect one another’s interests!
  • This is an event I will definitely be participating in again! So much love is spread around and so many great things happened as a result.

Stats

Alright, this one is mostly for my excitement because HOLY CARP – I’ve never had so many views in one day! First of all, I just want to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone who visited my blog over the last two days. You guys are wonderful and amazing.

Second, here are my stats:

  • Feb 20th: I had 148 views – crazy!
    • 34 likes – Yay!
    • 34 comments – Woo!
  • Feb 21st: I had 149 views – oh my gosh! The most I’ve ever had!
    • 23 likes – Yay!
    • 50 comments – Holy moly!

Thank you all so much for contributing to these stats! You guys rock!

  2. Love this! So nice to do a wrap-up post 🙂 I guess that means you were missing LoveAThon today too? I ended up doing a little post on all the books and TV shows people were recommending but I definitely still need to do a post that includes all my favourite blogs/bloggers from the weekend.
    Thank you so much for the shoutout! That made my day!
