I’m always surprised by which posts inspire readers to comment. Like most writers, I have a small group of devoted fans who I can always count on to remind me I’m not writing to a void. But beyond these wonderful efriends, each post garners a few more responses from people I don’t know. I always drop by their blogs to visit and see what motivates them to be bloggers and writers. Sometimes, they’re artists, poets, good Samaritans, and/or just plain ordinary people who have reached out.
I want to share some of my most commented blogs with you. This list is surprisingly different from ‘Most Visited’. I’ll show you the comparison:
- 51 Great Similes to Spark Imagination
- How to Describe an American–if You Aren’t
- 10 Tips for Picture Book Writers (a guest post from a wonderful efriend and artist)
- 8 Tips for Historic Fiction Writers
- 10 Tips for Steampunk Writers (this one surprised me. I wrote it based on research and found out what an amazing genre this is)
- 6 Things I Wish I’d Known When I Started Blogging
- 178 Ways to Describe Women’s Clothing
