Level up! 600 Posts

Over 9000 - Number of posts? It's over 600!

As a RPG gamer, I always think that the first few levels are intentionally easy

  • Level 1: set up the blog
  • Level 2: Publishing the first review
  • Level 3: Getting the first views from readers through search engines
  • Level 4: Publish 5 reviews
  • Level 5: Publish 20 reviews
  • Level 6: every day a hit – constant traffic
  • Level 7: first follower
  • Level 8: Publish 50 reviews
  • Level 9: 5 views daily
  • Level 10: Publish a guest review
  • Level 11: Schedule a review
  • Level 12: Attract a pingback
  • Level 13: 50 ARC Reviews
  • Level 14: 500 Likes
  • Level 15: 600 Posts

I guess, it has a lot to do with my two years reading slump and wanting to ride the publication wave. Let’s just say “R.I.P TBR shelves”. But I also managed to squeeze in a few non-ARCs, like
