Pertama-tama, selamat datang 2016
Sebelum momennya semakin basi ditelan hari yang berganti, saya mau sedikit membuat rekap. Dengan bantuan annual report dari WordPress, mari kita lihat bagaimana hari-hari berlangsung di blog buku Faraziyya. Pertama, penambahan jumlah kunjungan di blog ini selama tahun 2015 adalah sebesar 17.000 views. Quite a number, for a quiet blog. I honestly cannot comment any further because I guess that number is what I deserved looking back to how I left this blog in poor condition because of my busy life.
Lalu, kalau melihat posting pattern, ketahuan banget kalau frekuensi blogging mulai menurun hingga stop sama sekali ngga ada update di pertengahan tahun. Saya ingat sih, itu waktu saya baru masuk kerja dan dicecar kesibukan baru sehingga prioritas untuk membaca dan blogging harus dikesampingkan.
Good news is, this blog has some powerful posts that has attracted others to come though they were posted way before 2015. WordPress itself said like this, ” your writing has staying power! consider writing about those topics again.” They’re Love, Rosie movie review post, Assalamu’alaikum Beijing review post and Bo & Jo (comic) review post. I’ll consider writing around that topics later. Hope it will still have the power to attract more viewer of this blog.
Move on to my reading activities, I have failed all the reading challenges I took. GR reading challenges and the other. See it for yourself. If I’m not wrong, I took the challenge to read 115 books at first -considering I’ve accomplished the challenge to read 125 books in 2014. But life happened and after reducing the number, I still failed it and just succeed in reading 61 books in 2015.
However, I will still join some reading challenge this year. I’m taking Pop Sugar 2016 Reading Challenge (still working on the reading list and will reveal it soon), Contemporary Reading Challenge (hosted by Gone With the Words) and Backlist Books Reading Challenge (prettydeadlyblog.com).
Meanwhile, I also took the courage to host a reading challenge. Young Adult Reading Challenge, but wait for the further information will you?
And as the atmosphere that New Year always bring: one may wish for the better, so do I. I really wish for a better reading and book-blogging activity this year. I hope you too, will have a good 2016 in reading (and book-blogging if you are one) 😉
That’s a wrap for now. I’ll continue working on the master post of my-very-first-reading-challenge-to-host. See you
