I have resisted writing a post like this for a couple of weeks.
What is the point of promoting my 12 most popular posts this year?
If you haven’t read them yet then why would you want to read them now?
Then I took my own advice and wrote for myself.
So especially for me here are my top posts one from each month.
Best of January
This month I only published book reviews. This was my favourite book that month.
Best of February
This post has continued throughout my writing. I constantly look at streamlining my input in order to concentrate on the areas that get the best reward.
Best of March
This was my most popular piece in March. It is a personal piece about why I write which would resonate with many writers.
Best of April
This was one of the first articles I posted to my other blog. It combines my full time job as a Deputy Head with my writing.
Best of May
This was my most popular post this month.
Best of June
Again this was my popular post this month. It was also my first short story to receive good statistics.
Best of July
This was the first post that received over 1000 views on Medium. It was the post that led me to believe I could make it as a blogger. It has a special place in my heart.
Best of August
This short story was chosen as the editors choice on Medium. It is to date, the only piece that has won that accolade.
Best of September
This post was my first to be picked up by Medium curators in writing.
Best of October
This single post is my post successful to date. Due to the subject nature, I only published it on Medium.
Best of November
This post was actually a question from a follower. It has a special place in my heart as it was the first question I received from a follower.
Best of December
This was the first poem I wrote and published. It is also a very personal piece for me.
I hope you have enjoyed this look back on my work.
Thank you to everyone who has supported my writing this year. To those that take the time to comment and clap my work, every single one of you is appreciated. I look forward to connecting with more of you in 2019.
