I blog, therefore, I am.
I like blogging. It’s me. As a kid, I kept a diary. I was “opinion editor” of my college newspaper. I wrote a weekly column when I worked as a newspaper reporter. I was born to blog.
In reviewing the year, I’ve compiled a list of the most popular blogs of 2016. The criteria for “popular” include greatest number of visits, comments, and/or shares. Excluded from the list are my weekly Weekend Writing Warriors posts, which always get a lot of comments and contest posts where people could win something. Also omitted is my no. 1 most visited post of the year, which was the unveiling of my website “redo.” You’re here, you’re looking at it, so you don’t need to revisit it.
With those exclusions, here are my most popular blogs of 2016:
In blogging, I try to balance book promotion with informational and/or fun blogs like those above. If you’d like to be emailed when I have new posts, there’s a signup box at the top of the sidebar on the right (It says, subscribe to my posts).
