Celebrating 7 Year Blogoversary

Posted on by


Today marks the seven-year anniversary of Angel’s Guilty Pleasures.

Since I started in January 2014, I have reviewed 1,666 books/audios, received over 16,275 comments, posted little over 2,900 posts and hit over 2,000 Likes on Facebook.

I’ve had the privilege of hosting the Library Love Challenge for five years and took it over from Jennifer who used to run The Book Nympho. I’ve had many wonderful bloggers over the years help host the challenge with me: 2017 Bea’s Book Nook, 2018 Brooke Blogs, and in 2020 Books of My Heart joined and continues to help spread the love of libraries. I’ve also learned to navigate html, plugins, and social media platforms.

I’ve seen my review formate change, expanded my reading genres, discovered the joy of Audiobooks, found new authors to enjoy, and reached many milestones. I’ve gone through slumps and have been inspired by other bloggers to try new things.

Thank you to all those who follow, uplift and support Angel’s Guilty Pleasures.
