End of 2013 Reading and Blogging Stats

2013 was a great year for me!  I got very involved in the book world, much more so than 2012!  Here are some highlights:

Starting vlogging and created my own YouTube channel 

Started a sister blog that features Adult and NA reads--Juliababyjen After Dark

Hosted my very first read-a-thon with my friend Dana!  A HUGE success!

Joined David Estes's Street Team--The Estes Angels!  (HUGE high for me!)

Became a moderator on a Goodreads Group (David's group)

Started organizing Q&A events with authors

Did my very first author interview

Celebrated my 3 year Blogoversary!

So really, not a bad year at all!  Let's get on to those stats!  I have to mention, I thought I had done a post like this last year, and apparently I didn't (or it got deleted!) so....I don't have some stats that are really important.  This year I'm writing everything down as well!
