So, it’s Monday, which means normally, I would host a debut author. But it's also the first full week in the life of this blog. So...instead of interviewing an author, I thought you might like to know how The Borrowed Book did in its first week of life.

Here are the figures for the first week, as reported by Stat Counter:

Unique Visitors: 98
First Time Visitors: 65
Returning Visitors: 33
Page Loads: 169
Highest Traffic Day: Friday

Now, you would think the figure that would appeal most to me is the First Time visitors. That's pretty respectable for a brand new venture. But truthfully, I'm more interested in the Returning Visitors figure. That's the number that shows me whether or not I'm providing material that's of interest to YOU...the reader.
Won't you leave me a comment and let me know how I'm doing? What kinds of interviews appeal to you? Who are some of your favorite authors that you would love to know something about?
Lastly, if you enjoy what you read here, help me get the word out about the great author interviews, reader excerpts, and weekly drawings by inviting your friends to The Borrowed Book. More visitors means more great authors and even more free books!
Thanks, everyone…and I’ll see you amid the pages.


  1. Hey, congrats! That looks good for a first week!! Well, I must confess I wasn't able to visit very often. I have other responsiblities and don't often have time to read interviews, but I love having it available to hop over if I have a few minutes. It looks great and I always love a chance to win a book. :) Keep it up, it's a unique and fun blog!

  2. Awesome. Thanks, Casey!! There are some great books lined up for this week's drawing. Good luck!

  3. I have been back a couple times this week. I really enjoy the interviews and learning more about the authors! Some authors I would love to see on here are Tamera Alexander, Lisa Bergren, Vickie McDonough, and Kaye Dacus. Thanks for the great reading:)


  4. Good news, Charity...I have a couple of these authors scheduled!! I'll be sure to contact the others as well. Thanks for the feedback.

  5. I love it, Lisa. It's unique among blogs. :)
