I honestly can’t believe it has been a year since I first clicked on that publish button and my first ever blog post was unleashed on the world. I remember my heart pounding as I waited to see what would happen. I was pleasantly surprised that no one hated what I wrote. True, only 12 people actually bothered to look at my first post but there was no outcry of how horrible it was and no one asked the question, ‘Who the hell do you think you are to write about writing?’
So I continued and have had a fantastic time. I’ve participated in a cover reveal and a blog tour. I’ve also met some fantastic Australian authors like Fiona McIntosh, Liane Moriarty and most recently Sara Foster and Natasha Lester.
I also tried my hand at a bullet journal and found out that although I think they’re cool, I’m really not very good at updating them. Many other things have also happened but it would take to long too list them all. What I’ve decided to do instead is compile a list of the top 5 most popular posts as viewed by you guys, the people who actually read what I write. So here they are 🙂
5. When Editing Hurts – this is my most recent post (apart from this one obviously) so I’m surprised that it’s actually on the list.
4. Getting the Words Down – in this post I share the 5 tips that help me get my word count up and hopefully they help you as well.
3. What is an alpha reader? – this one surprised me by being on the list, seeing as it was the third post I wrote. It’s about that person you trust most to read your writing.
2. The Solace Of Reading – A post about how reading helped me to rejuvenate my writing spirit.
1.Writing and the Body – Well, when I wrote this one I had absolutely no idea it would be my most popular post for the year. In it I pass on some tips about body posture and sitting at your desk. My own was terrible and was the reason for the post. It’s much better now, by the way, but is still a work in progress.
So that’s it, a year done and hopefully many more to come.
Have a happy and creative week people 🙂
