What’s Trending on WordDreams

I  calculate What’s Trending on my blog by which of my posts are popular a particular ninety-day period. Here’s this period’s run-down:

  1. 51 Great Similes to Spark Imagination
  2. 178 Ways to Describe Women’s Clothing
  3. 35 Weird Traits Your Characters May Have
  4. How to Describe a Landscape
  5. How to Describe Nature
  6. One-Word Characteristics to Spice Up Your Writing
  7. How to Describe Dogs
  8. How to Describe a Person’s Clothing
  9. Word Count by Genre
  10. Characteristics That Make Your Character Memorable

Interesting, isn’t it? 9 out of 10 are descriptions. That tells me, writers visit my blog to hone skills, not for my opinions (which is good because I’m not terribly opinionated, and those I have, I’m happy to keep between my husband and myself and my critique group).

  2. I need to figure out what’s trending on mine for the 90-day period– some are on my sidebar as top posts and keep getting repeat hits. I find I get the most hits on the posts where I ask debatable questions, offering my opinion only in the most roundabout way.
