  1. Hey Becca! I’m super sorry I didn’t see this before. I feel so guilty because I was the one who requested it *hides in corner, ashamed* But thanks for writing this (once again!) amazing post! <333

  2. Sorry to that person, but he’s actually said the exact opposite of what’s true. The unique visitors are a smaller number than the views, showing that some of your visitors come and look at your blog posts more than once.

  3. Don’t worry, I had the exact same question when I first started blogging! Basically just go to your monthly stats. There they have number of views and number of visitors. The number of visitors is your monthly unique visitors!

  4. Ummm….I have a stupid question. How do you find out your unique visitors? I noticed that on wordpress there’s this thing called Views Per Visitor. Is that the same thing as unique visitors?

  5. Hey! No problem. There’s actually no standard time at all. For lesser known publishers it’s usually faster. If you’re not going to get the book, almost always they just won’t reply. Really big publishing companies will not reply and just send the book. There are lots of possibilities!
    Hope that helped!!

  6. Hi again! Really really sorry to bother you but I just have one more question: How long should it take for the publishers to email you back? I googled it but I didn’t really find anything helpful, I thought maybe you would know? xx J

  7. Wow that sure is a lot of books! These authors must have really loved the way you write your reviews that they keep on sending their requests to you. You are totally an inspiration! πŸ˜€

  8. Hopefully, I’ll have some new things going up on my blog soon! And no need to thank me πŸ™‚

  9. This post really encouraged me to post mor because I’ve been lacking with the amount of posts since I started this blog but I’m determined to actually start posting daily now or at least a few times a week!

  10. Thank you! I’ve been blogging for about seven months! Publishers tend not to send books to brand new blogs, but they do make exceptions! Don’t be discouraged if you don’t get any, it just takes patience! Just check out my other book blogging 101 posts if you need help!
    Thanks so much for commenting!

  11. Whoa, you have so many! And how long have you been blogging? I just requested a bunch of ARCs a few days ago but I’ve only been blogging for a month so I don’t actually think I’ll get any πŸ˜‚ Anyway thanks for sharing! I’ll have to check out these books. xx J
