Interesting, isn’t it? My series on descriptions still draws about ten times more visitors than any other category, as it has every year. Look at today’s figures–
Aside from the most recent blog post, every one of the top click throughs is focused on descriptors!
Book review are also popular. In fact Diana’s latest fantasy, Liars and Thieves, drew more comments than any other post in the last 100 days (maybe forever). Part of that is Diana–she is a wonderful guest, taking time to answer questions and interact with visitors. If you have the chance, invite her to your blog!
Reviews were also appealing to visitors and to a lesser amount, writing tips–marketing, genres, how-tos. That actually fits my image of my community–serious writers be it full- or parttime, in love with writing, and enjoy engaging with kindred souls.
