2014 in review

There’s nothing quite like a ready made post that’s already customized and ready to go. A big thanks to the WordPress helper monkeys for compiling my 2014 year in review.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 2,700 times in 2014. If it were a cable car, it would take about 45 trips to carry that many people.

2013 Year in Review

2013 has been a fantastic year, I’ve had a great time with this new blog while continuing posting over at my blog for writers, My Literary Quest.

Here are the most popular posts from this blog this year:

spongebobEverything I need to know about life I learned from Spongebob – As with most popular memes, this post was inspired by a random spur of the moment idea.  School was out for my kiddos and I’d overindulged with them on Spongebob. While watching the thought struck me that the show has a lot of positive ideas.

summer 13 giveaway hop[1][1]Summer Giveaway Hop 2013 – It’s not surprising that this post got a lot of hits, as part of a one of the biggest author hops and including a free giveaway  there was good incentive to drop by.    I had fun being a part of the hop and I am considering doing it again, although I might wait until I have a book to offer.

alfie01The Search is Over – Back in the beginning of the year I had a series of posts introducing my cast of characters.  In this post I introduced Jarand, one of the protagonists, and compared him to the popular tenor Alfie Boe. To my surprise the Alfie Boe fan club dropped by and said hello!

While I would love to say I’m happy with my current traffic, it’s really quite puny.  I guess that’s what I get for not posting as often and not having a strong platform.  The biggest problem is that I really don’t know what to say here.  I don’t have that regular news about the current book I’m working on that I’m willing to share, yet. And I haven’t published yet so I can’t really post updates about that either.

One of my goals for 2014 is to find a better focus for this blog and then reach out to that audience and bring them in.  I’d love this blog to serve as a brilliant way of attracting fans to my writing.  Hey, a girl can dream right?

Here’s to another great year of blogging!
