It’s officially been two years of blogging on this baby, arctic books! Thank you so much for checking out my blog, whether you just clicked on this link or if you’ve been following me since I made my blog two years ago. Since last year, there’s been a few changes to this blog, and we’re (did you notice that it’s “we” and not “I” anymore??) super thrilled to have reached this milestone!
Who are these new people posting on your blog?
If you haven’t noticed yet, I (Alice) have co-bloggers now! I’ve been mulling around the idea of opening my blog to more people since I’m going to be more busy in the coming weeks, since I’m starting my freshman year of college this year. I’m still going to have posts going up (blog tours and giveaways, general life updates and pop-ins, etc.) and I’m going to be active on my Twitter and Instagram.
I’m so happy to have JM, Jesse, and Liv on my team, and they’re such amazing bloggers! I am so excited for you guys to see what they have to contribute to this blog, and I hope you love them as much as I do.
So, what’s next for arctic books?
I’ve also been turning this idea around for a while now, and I want to slowly turn my blog into something more than books. I love books, of course, but I also want to open arctic books into more lifestyle ideas and posts.
What kinds of posts will these be?
As I said earlier, I’m going to college in the fall, so I’m thinking a lot of college updates – how I set up my dorm room, how life has changed, what I’m working on now, favorite college sights, etc. I’m also thinking of makeup posts, such as my favorite makeup products, my makeup routine, etc. I’ve also asked JM, Jesse, and Liv to contribute to lifestyle posts too if they wanted, so you’ll probably be seeing posts about book events, television shows, movies, and theater! It’s going to be a fun time, y’all.
Here are arctic books’ stats (mostly for my own reference to see how arctic books has grown over the years):
- 376 total posts with 5,528 comments, 42,489 total views,
- 1,250 WordPress followers, 38 email followers
- 297 Bloglovin’ followers
