By the Numbers
Facebook: Facebook is by far our largest platform. Every review we write is posted in full on Facebook, as well as linked to the website. We recently started a weekly Facebook Live feature and post intermittent video reviews. We have an average reach of 30k per month and nearly 46 hours of watched video content each month.
Instagram: Instagram is where we share those gorgeous book covers and swap our favorite reading memes. Between @revolds (the official account of LiS editor, Josh Olds) and @lifeisstoryreviews (newly established in 2020), we have an average reach of 5k per month.
Website: At it’s height in 2015, LiS averaged 10k visitors per month. Since our four year hiatus, we’re slowly rebuilding and currently average 2k per month.
YouTube: Launched this month (April 2020), we’re on pace for 1k views per month.
Podcast: The Life is Story podcast, hosted by Josh Olds, has over 38k downloads to date.
Praise for Life is Story
In the realm of Christian publishing, Life is Story is a trusted voice in the publishing industry. Our reviewers are INSPY and Christy Awards judges and our endorsements have been featured in a number of books and promotional materials. But don’t take our word for it. Listen to these endorsements from the authors themselves:
Life is Story is such a well-done site…keep up the good work! – Max Lucado, Pastor at Oak Hills Church, 130 million books in print.
Life is Story is one of the best review sites I know… Always fair, and always to the point. Even more, Josh Olds brings a deep awareness of thematic exploration to the table. This isn’t a simple, ‘here’s what happens’ type of site—we have the back of books for that. He gives a rare look into each book without spoiling the plot. Bravo! – Ted Dekker, NYT Bestselling Author
I can always count on Life is Story to ask the deeper, probing questions behind a book. As an author, I appreciate the diligence and great interviews. As a reader, I appreciate the reviews that delve into the heart of the story. Thank you, Josh! – Tosca Lee, NYT Bestselling Author
