Happy One Year Blogaversary!!

1st blog anniversary

Yes, it has reached that time! It really was one year ago to the day when I decided, aided by my very helpful and supportive girlfriend Madeleine, to set up a blog showcasing my writing and my major passions. Since starting off with this first postย 12 month ago, I have continued to showcase my writing, as well as expanding it to includephotographs I have taken, my own creative writing and reviewing places of interest. I really do thank you for your support. Discovering your great blogs, as well as hearing your insight on my posts, has just added to the experience. This blog wouldn’t be anything without you.

Later today I will reveal my favourite posts, but first I wanted to share some data information I think you might find interesting.

The top five countries who most read my blog are the UK, US, France, Germany and Canada. Miss Piggy is the most looked for item in my blog, for which I have this post to thank. Columbo, Unlce Phil and Clara Bow are also popular. There’s also loads of individual links to this musical Line(s) of the Day which must certainly have been a nightmare to sing live!

Below are the most popular post in each category:

Awards: Three in One

Creative: Yesterday’s Tomorrow

Film Quizzes: Modern Films Ignored by the Academy

Guest Series: Jagten (The Hunt)

  1. Congrats! I thought you were a lot older – you reek of confidence! I’m just 2 months older than you. Well done, little brother!

  2. I like your blog and am thankful you follow me. Nothing beats real people in this virtual sphere commenting on what takes probably too much time out of one’s day creating. Congrats, mate! ๐Ÿ™‚

      • I love the daily quotes and the quizzes! I’d also like to see more of your creative writing – the pieces you’ve posted have been really interesting!

        The movie reviews are always fascinating as are the photographs and restaurant reviews. Your blog is like the arts pages of the newspapers!

  3. Congrats on one year of blogging, Alex. Great to see another blogger (especially named Alex) writing about a wide range of fascinating topics. As always, I really appreciate your steady support of Bookshelf: for the intellectually curious. Keep up the great work and look forward to reading your posts. Cheers. Alex
