As a year comes to an end, and a new one begins, we always like to look at what went well in the past. Now, after a decade, there’s some deep reflection being made. After scouring our blog and social media posts, we’ve come to find trends and popular posts.
Here’s a run down for 2019: We had 118 posts, incorporating a total of 65,157 words (Wow! That’s a whole book!). We’ve had the most likes on our posts more this year than any other year! (Yay!) Our comments are down, so we’d love to have a chat with you! Please comment away!
Overall, we have so many great posts between 2014 (opening year of our blog) – 2019 that we wanted to reshare our most popular writing tips blog posts from the last decade. If there’s something good, why not revisit it? We will share daily on social media for ten days and we’d love to hear from you. Did you like the posts? What message did you get out of it? How has it helped? Can we move on with this in 2020?
And here we go…
