Top Posts from 2010 (so far)

I like playing with the tracking on my blog sometimes. Here are the most popular posts on this blog, by month, for 2010 so far. It’s very interesting to see which posts seem to be of more general interest.

January: Tell Not Show, a writing craft post.

February: My Favorite Girls Dressed As Boys (Fantasy Edition), which continues to get visits along with its companion post from September 2009, The Romance Edition.

March: Why Not 20th Century Historicals? The first view of the Alison’s Wonderland cover was close behind. People like pretty pictures!

April: Slow Writers Anonymous. Author Gwynne Garfinkle’s post on Researching the 1970s was close behind.

May: Combined posts (the Brontë tag) on my reread of Jane Eyre. Various individual posts on that set were also in the top ten for the month.

June: Evie Byrne’s guest post on On the Female Vampire.

July: Eroticism in To Have & To Hold by Patricia Gaffney.

The top posts for August were news rather than topical posts: my announcement that I was writing a steampunk Western, and my reports on the 2010 RWA Conference.

If you had a different favorite, let me know in comments!

  1. It's always interesting to see what bring people to your blog. One I did on the hawk as totem two years ago is still one of my most popular posts.

  2. I've noticed that, too – some posts seem to have "legs" and keep getting hits long after they were originally posted.
