A look back at 2022 on the blog and goals for 2023!

2022 was a year of huge growth for the blog and I'm excited to share just a few of the stats and fun facts that I learned while checking out what we've accomplished this year!

We published 1741 posts this year and had over 3000 individual reviews - one post had eight reviews on it from our team!

Our review team is going strong with over 25 contributors this year!  Our top contributors for the year were Heather, Janet, SNik, Laora, Jacqueleen, Angel, Red's Book Reds, Miki J, Jacquie and Tatted Book Freak!

We had 100,000+ page views and our most viewed review was Rookie Mistake by L.A. Witt and Anna Zabo.  Our most viewed Author Interview was Susu Khaa's interview from November 2021, but the most viewed interview that was published in 2022 was Daniel May's Interview from January!

Behind the scenes we've had a strong admin team that was constantly evolving and meeting new challenges - Thanks to Jacquie, Tammy and Sarah for helping manage the blog day to day and to Sheena and Reed Kaye for helping manage the Facebook group and keep it safe!

Speaking of, our Facebook group grew exponentially and we now have over 3,100 members!  This year the group hosted several themed parties, author release parties and author takeovers, as well as sharing our love for everything mm romance!

Our tiktok channel is going strong and here is our most watched video of the year with 3,000 views!

We're kicking off 2023 with some great reviews, more promo opportunities and hopefully growing our community to include a discord server and expanding our reach, but at the heart, we're going to keep reading, reviewing and sharing our love of MM & related romance!  If you have suggestions or ideas for us for the new year, please let us know!
