Blogathon 2013 Round-Up – the month in figures

So, June 29th, I’ve nearly made it! With tomorrow being wordle day, I thought I’d take a look back at what I’ve written about this month:

Number of picture books discussed = 12

Posts on translation and related matters = 7

Reviews of translated books = 4

Bouts of idle musing = 4

Adult novels/novellas = 3

Number of guest posts = 3

German books discussed = 2

Reviews of books for older children = 2

So, picture books are the outright winners in numbers of posts. Posts on translation-related matters are more popular with readers though. And no, those numbers don’t add up – some posts span more than one category. Sometimes I feel like I should have a more specific focus, but on the whole the mix seems more me… It’s been nice to have the guest posts and that’s something I’m aiming to do more of in the next little while. Although I didn’t manage all the theme days, it’s been good to focus on getting a post up daily, as well as interesting to read around some of the other participants’ blogs. I hope you’ve enjoyed following along and tomorrow there’ll be a chance to see what it all looks like in a word cloud.

About forwardtranslations

I'm a freelance literary translator from German and French to English. The title of my blog comes from Mary Schmich's description of reading: it struck home with me, and seems especially apt for translated fiction. Here are some of my musings on what I'm reading, re-reading, reading to my children, and translating.
