The Qwillery is 5!

Dear Readers,

The Qwillery is 5 years old today!

The Qwillery was not originally a speculative fiction blog, but became one in middle of 2010 and The Qwillery has evolved over time, adding the yearly Debut Author Challenge, ParaCozyMysMo, and recently reviewers. The Qwillery will continue to evolve. The traditional gift for a 5th Anniversary is wood. Since most paper is made from wood pulp, it is remarkably appropriate for The Qwillery. We'll be celebrating throughout the month with giveaways!

Today I just want to say thank you to The Qwillery's readers and followers. We've had over 609,000 pageviews (the vast majority since the blog changed its focus in 2010). We have over 5000 followers via various channels (RSS, email, Twitter, Facebook, etc.). We have had visitors from almost every country on the planet. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

I'd like to thank my reviewers - Melanie, Trinitytwo and Rebe for coming on board and helping improve The Qwillery. I am deeply grateful to each of you for the help and support you give me with the blog.

While there have been times in the last 2 years that I was not sure the blog would survive due to real life issues, I am so glad that you all stuck with The Qwillery and are here to celebrate the first 5 years with me. I hope that all of you are with me for the next 5 years and beyond.
