Farewell TBR: A Look at Four Years of Blogging by the Numbers

I don’t know about you, but I need closure, a chance to say goodbye to move on. I’ve been blogging for TBR since it started in 2019, and for all I know, this will be the blog’s last post.

So, what can I learn from myself about looking back through four years of blog posts? Let’s look at the numbers:

39 Total Posts

21 posts on fiction books or 53%

16 posts on fiction books or 41%

2 book lists posts or 5%

I’m really thrilled about these numbers because over a year ago I realized I had an implicit bias against nonfiction books; however, when I look back at my posts, I did a decent job highlighting fiction and nonfiction books. True, it’s not a 50/50 split. I still favor fiction. And it’s also true that I featured more nonfiction books after I realized my bias. But, that’s positive, too.

The first step is realizing the problem exists.

The second step is doing something about it.

How did I do in terms of featuring diverse authors? 

19 out of 37 posts or 51% featured authors from diverse racial, religious, or sexual orientations.

At a quick glance, that statistic looks decent but the blog was supposed to focus on diverse creators. So, from that lens, I fell short.

18 out of 37 posts or 49% featured authors I also interviewed on my podcast, Chalk + Ink, too. 

Not bad for efficiency, if I don’t say so myself.

Here’s the book list if you want to check it out.

Finally, I want to say thank you to anyone who has ever read any of my posts. Stay in touch! You can find me at or on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram @KateNarita.
