Reading and Blogging: June 2011

Thursday, June 30, 2011

On May 31, I challenged myself to write a blog post here every single day for the month of June. Well, it's the end of the month now (can you believe it?!) and I think I did it well. I have to admit, while it was sometimes challenging to come up with blog posts for everyday, I actually had a lot of fun. I felt like a responsible blogger for once, haha, and it was nice to hear from you everyday.

So for June, I wrote 34 (counting this one!) blog posts. And for the most part, they were mostly book reviews and reading-related discussions. I also was able to read 8 1/2 books!


  1. Well done babe :-) You did a great job and I love that you read lots of Dean K, cool.

    My goal was to respond to your post everyday, I did well and made it to your Top Commentators list so high five to us.

  2. Congrats, Jillian! I've to admit that I'm a pretty bad blogger cause mostly I only post whenever I feel like posting (which is not that often :P). Seriously need to change this habit and I think I need to challenge myself the way you did!

  3. Well done, Jillian. Thoese were great posts, too. My count, shamefully, is only to 21.

  4. Marce - Thank you so much for helping out with the challenge! I appreciate all your visits and comments :D

    Shy - Thank you! Just make sure when you challenge yourself you have fun too because you might end up hating posting after the end of the month haha :)

    Pecpa - 21 is good!! Last year, there were a few months when I only posted about 10. Now that;s a shame!

  5. Congrats! As always, I ask to keep the posts coming! When I want something new to read, I come here to see what is good. You're great, Jillian!

  6. Congrats, Jillian! Well done :)
    I am a comparatively new reader of your blog, but I enjoy all your posts.

  7. Congrats on reaching your goal! Do you think you will do this again...maybe make it a yearly event?

  8. Misha - Thank you! And for commenting all the time :) I appreciate it so much.

    Jenny - I might try to do this again, but I don't know if I would want to make it official again haha. It's so hard to keep up when you made a promise :D

  9. aww YAY! I used to be tough on myself to get a post up every day but then I was hit with so much school that I disappeared :p now I'm much more lax about it!
    Lots of book reviews! here's to an awesome July!

  10. Thanks Audrey Hope July is good for you too :)
