Nine Year Blogoversary 🧁

August 14th, 2020 Kimberly Event, Giveaway 61 Comments

14th Aug

Today marks the nine-year anniversary of Caffeinated Reviewer. The blog had humble begins on Blogger and was originally titled Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer, which was then shortened to Caffeinated Book Reviewer and ultimately came to be Caffeinated Reviewer after listening to audiobooks became an addiction equal to reading books.

I’ve seen blogs come and go, witnessed scandals, observed drama and made lifelong friends in the blogosphere.

I’ve learned html, navigated plugins, and social media platforms. I’ve hosted events, attended conferences, led classes and host challenges, read-a-thons, a weekly memes and have watched my review format change and evolve.

  • Sunday Post
  • Fraterfest Readathon
  • Audiobook Challenge
  • Clean Sweep ARC Challenge
  • Take Control of Your TBR Pile
  • Black Friday Book Bonanza Hop
  • HoHoHo Readathon
  • Top Tens
  • Caffeinated Confessions
  • Recipes & A Book Rec
  • Nonna’s Corner

I’ve expanded my genres, found new authors, and reached many milestones. I’ve gone through slumps, have been inspired and used my passion and skills to create my own business.

Since I started in August 2011, I have reviewed 2,450 books/audios and received over 100,000 comments here at Caffeinated.

Readers like you keep me connected and encourage me to continue. Thank you to all those who follow, uplift and support the Caffeinated Reviewer. You’ve kept me posting, made me laugh and introduced me to new authors, books and narrators.

The book blogging community is diverse, kind-spirited and supportive. I’ve made lifelong friends and wouldn’t have discovered the new authors, books and narrators that adorn my shelves without the work that they do. You are the pulse of the book world. I am privileged to count Caffeinated Reviewer among your ranks.

Be safe, be kind and may the odds be forever in your favor…..

    Congratulations, Kimba! I remember meeting you at BEA 13 with my co-author Sherry. You’re so important to the writing world and have helped introduce new authors to a wide audience. Not only that, you’ve helped connect people and expand their genres. Thanks for all your dedication, you’re fantastic!

    Congratulations, on 9 years of blogging, Kimberly! It’s been a while for me, too (8 years) and it’s interesting how things change. Yes, I’ve seen scandals over the year, most of which I tune out and ignore now, but for the most part blogging has been a wonderfully positive experience! Part of which includes “meeting” you! Here’s to many more years to come! πŸ™‚

    Loved reading your post. DidnΒ΄t know that you started at Blogger once. Very interesting… Thank you for sharing with us all the numbers, facts and information. It is always wonderful to read about how others grew with their blog and how they changed. Not only personally but also in style and design. To nine more years *cheers*

    Congrats on 9 years. It’s such an accomplishment, and I’m so happy that you’re still blogging! I’ve seen many bloggers disappear over the years (I’ve been around for 13) so it’s always nice when some long-ago favorites are still here!! I hope you have many more amazing years blogging.


  11. Lover of Romance

    CONGRATS on 9 years!! Its amazing to see the growth over the years and its been a blessing to interact with you. You are a true gem of the community.

    Cheers to another nine years!!

    WOW!! 9-years! That’s a milestone. Congratulations. Thank’s for hosting the audiobook challenge. I’ve found so many great books from your site and have started listening to more audios due to the challenge. Wishing you many more years of blogging.

  13. Lola

    Congrats on the 9 year blogoversary! What an awesome milestone to reach. You were one of the first bloggers I got in contact with and I still remember joining the Sunday Post as soon as I started my own blog. Here’s to another 9 years! And thanks for the giveaway!

  14. Sophia Rose

    Yay for another year of Caffeinated Reviewer! Fun to see your overall stats and heart-felt message. It’s a joy to stop by and visit. You’ve added so many wonderful books and audios to my pile, too. πŸ™‚

    Congratulations on 9 years! I hit my ninth blogoversary in January, so I’m not far behind you. I’ve really enjoyed following all these years and can’t wait to see what this next year has in store!

    I love your blog! The design was the first thing that caught my attention because I was setting up my own blog. But after poking around and reading a number of your reviews I was hooked. Your review of the Witcher series encouraged me to read the first book and put the others on my list to read.

  17. Aj @ Read All The Things!

    Happy blogiversary! Congrats on 9 years. I’m very grateful for The Sunday Post because it has introduced me to some of my best blogger friends. I’ve been participating for years.

  18. Jessica @ a GREAT read

    Congrats Kimba! I can’t believe it’s been 9 years! It almost feels longer. When you’ve been blogging this long it’s always hard to remember how we all found each other. I’m trying to remember how I came across your blog and kept following all these years! I keep thinking I need to do something to teach myself more about websites and such, but when I think about it, I pick up a book and start reading instead! Lol.

    Congrats on the 9 years again!! πŸ˜€
