Top Writing Posts of 2012 and 2013

Today I wanted to hunker down and take a look at the posts that I have been doing the last couple of years. I wanted to know what you've been reading, and try to get some ideas of what you'd like to hear more of.

Blog writing is an interesting thing. I write a post, and I think, "They're going to love this," and then I get fewer hits than I expected. And then a day comes when I'm merely frustrated with life (Check out my post on Headaches and White Stuff) and you'll get my drift.

And so I'd like to share your favorite posts with you. Especially if you missed one or more of them you may just want to take a gander.
I visited my family. Couldn't get there fast enough.

 Do you write while on vacation? Take photos that you might be able to use later in your work? Do you consider what may be prepared ahead of time by God or by man, through God, before you even need it? These questions were discussed as I shared my trip to Texas last year.

The post happened recently when I promoted my book, Marketing Your Book on a Budget 2013. I talked about how to get the eBook free as well as gave you a tip on a free book promotion.

3. League of Utah Writer's Conference:

This post focused on the upcoming League of Utah Writer's Conference and the booth I had there. Links were given to the conference. The League of Utah Writer's Conference is held every September.

4. Headaches and White Stuff:

Headaches and White Stuff talked about the constant snow we were receiving here in Utah in January of this year. Yes, I was complaining. Funny that this should make #4. I can't decide if it was the title, or if everyone was as sick of winter as I was.
Yes, taking classes and improving our writing is important, and I'm glad this one made the list. We learn when we take a class because we not only learn from the instructor, but from the students.
So, in a nutshell: You like to vacation, get free stuff, go to writer's conferences, complain a little, and learn some. And if it's in that order, I think things are going just fine!



  1. I always have to have a small notebook in my purse because out of the blue an idea will bust out of my brain. If I don't write it down, I won't remember it. I'm with you on the blogging thing. Sometimes I think my few readers will love it and post something. I get nothing. Then I put something out of the blue and short, and I get a few comments. I don't know. I guess I'll type what I feel and they can take it or not. :)

  2. I love the notebook idea. Thanks for sharing!
