One year ago we sent out this message to the world:
We are so excited to start this new blog for girls who love sports. Whether you love to play sports or are just a huge sports fan, we hope you will come back and take a look at our content and book lists. Over the next months we will be adding stories about girls in sports, book lists, and interviews with authors who write sports books about girls. Please let us know how we are doing by leaving comments in our posts and sharing your own stories as a sporty girl.
Since then we have gotten the chance to interview some amazing writers, agents, and athletes.
Our book list for teens has been viewed over 900 times, our middle grade list 400, and our leveled list for teachers has been used over 100 times!
People all over the world have viewed the site, from the United States to Canada, Ukraine, Poland, Germany, Russian, UK, France, China, and Latvia!
Our Athlete Spotlight with Star Lacrosse Player Erin Kenedy was viewed 1447 times and many of our other posts are also in the 1000 pageview range.
We have 50 likes on Facebook, 352 followers on Twitter, and this blog has been joined by 33 people.
But we're not done! Our goal is to reach as many people as possible to make sure that these amazing sporty books are getting into the hands of readers and that girls who love sports know that they are not alone.
