I started blogging in February of 2009, and what a ride it has been. In this post, I’d like to share a few of the favourite posts we’ve had on this blog judging by reader response.
The biggest influencer in my efforts as a blogger has been the Bloggers Helping Bloggers group on Linked In. If you are a dedicated blogger, and have not yet found this group, I’d highly recommend joining. There are experienced bloggers to offer assistance and advice, and members support one another by making comments on one another’s blogs to get the conversation going. I’ve really appreciated this group, and the friendships I have made from it.
But became the hardest thing for me has been to try and manage three blogs. My original blog was my writing blog. My second blog was my travel blog, which I’m pleased to say was honoured as one of the Top 25 Travel Blogs in Canada by Flight Network. And the third blog I added to the roster is the Chocolatour site about my book on chocolate travel, chocolate events I am organizing, and chocolate tours I am leading. All three sites have now been combined onto this one blog as I was having trouble keeping up with posting on three separate sites.
in the writing thread of posts, here are a few of the favourite posts that have generated the most reader engagement:
The post popular post ever, is the post called “Books of a lifetime,” in which we shared titles of books that have most significantly impacted our lives. As many of those who read this blog are writers, it’s natural that the post on books garnered the most interest.
Another really popular post was when we talked about “heeding the signs” and ensuring we don’t lose balance in our lives. As I have been suffering from tinnitus (which can be a sign of stress) we also talked about that.
One of the most important things in my life is friendship, and so it’s no wonder that I return to this topic from time-to-time. This post was one of the most popular.
And many of us love and have cats, so this post about the loss of a dearly loved pet, struck home with lots of readers.
Please leave a comment here, and tell me/us what you’d like to talk about. And if any of the above posts strikes your fancy, please drop by there and leave a comment. Comments are never closed on my blog as I love hearing from you, and try to keep the content relevant and evergreen.
