Top Five Most Viewed Posts for 2018

2018 has been a roller coaster ride of a year, hasn't it?

Well, before we put on our party hats and usher in 2019, I thought I would wrap up the year with a quick list of the five most viewed posts on the blog that were written this year. I'm pleasantly surprised by the variety - I wouldn't say any of them is much like the rest.

Without further ado, here are the five posts written this year that have received the most views:

5) "The Unwinding Cable Car" (posted 4/2/2018)

This was the first blog post to go up this year. I admit, I got a little philosophical with things as I talked about what had been going on in my head and with one of the craft projects I've been working on. 

That project still isn't finished, in case you've read that one and were wondering.

In case the title didn't tip you off, this post was a quick story from everyday life about an incident involving something good that I experienced while I was using public transit this past summer.

3) My Writer's Toolbox: Thesauruses I Love  (posted 8/23/2018)

For this one, I created a list of thesauruses I love and use all of the time when I'm working on my works-in-progress. I fan-girled a bit about the Descriptive Thesaurus Collection put out by Angela Ackerman and Becca Puglisi in this one. Then Angela Ackerman started following me on Twitter, and I may have had a bigger fan-girl moment over that than I did here on the blog.

2) Book Review: The Hands We're Given (Posted on 10/25/2018)

In October, I reviewed the first in fellow science fiction indie author O.E. Tearmann's Aces High, Jokers Wild series. It was a fun read, and I'm happy to see a book review near the top of the most viewed list this year.

And coming in at #1 - *drum roll please*

1) Sneak Peek: Overload Stories (Posted on 5/22/2018)

This post went up in advance of the short story collection I released over the summer. I do feel the need to stress that this is not a science fiction collection - just a few stories I had been working on for years in other genres that I felt like I needed to put out there.

Did you have a favorite blog post this year? Let me know which one in the comments, whether it was one I wrote here or something someone else wrote that you just could not help but share.

That's a wrap for 2018 here on the blog. See you in 2019 for the next one!
