Greetings, my dearest men and women! It is with absolute excitement that I present this succeeding post in honor of Reviews by Cat Ellington’s first annual celebration! Exactly one calendar year ago today, I established this personal online journal to accommodate my sizable collection of personally penned literary reviews. And I am so proud—so humbly proud—to say that in the first year I published 235 literary compositions, in the form of analyses, to the blog's book-enthused layout.

Though a considerable number of my analytical compositions which critique novels of both fiction and nonfiction were structured in longhand decades before there had been any such thing as the Internet, much less social cataloging sites that cater to the literary arts community, a vast number of the same were constructed, electronically, over the last five years. And of this feat, I am tremendously proud.

I wish to thank all of you who have taken the time to email me your personal compliments and other fine appraisals. And to all of those authors who have spoken many heartfelt words of tribute and admiration in honor of my analyses, I say, ‘Right back atcha!’ Because all of you have yourselves been given great wisdom from the Almighty Creator above to do what is significantly pleasing in the incontestable craft of writing. Nothing brings me so much joy on this Earth—aside from my loved ones—as the written word. And as long as there is wisdom bestowed upon me, and I’ve a blank page before me with a pen in my hand—or keys at my fingertips—I will enthusiastically compose a whirlwind of words; for such doing is my unequivocal passion.

Thank you, my beloved fellow readers and, ahem, scribblers.

— Cat Ellington
