I started from humble beginnings with only a few hits per month, and clearly remember the excitement of my first book offer from an author. Since then, I've accepted a few but had to decline over 450+ individual requests emailed to me by authors and publicists. Now that my blog has grown, I receive monthly offers and opportunities via publisher catalogues, including; Simon & Schuster, Pan Macmillan & Picador, Allen & Unwin and Murdoch Books to name a few.
In the last 10 years I've published 576 posts, (most of them book reviews), given away 21 books and have almost reached the milestone of a million page views (I'm currently in the vicinity of 770,000).
I've met some great authors along the way, participated in blog tours, read-alongs, blog hops and countless reading challenges and enjoyed every minute of it.
Thanks to all those who have supported me over the years, I enjoy my role as an Australian book blogger and look forward to many more entertaining reads, interviews and giveaways in the future.
