Notes from An Alien

~ Explorations In Reading, Writing, and Publishing ~

Top 42 Posts & Pages on Reading, Writing, and Publishing

42?? Why not Top 10 or Top 50?

Well, this blog has been active since January 1st, 2011 (33,674 views) and I decided that posts which were, on average, viewed at least once a week were popular enough to include :-)

Plus, since there have been 466 Posts and I have 8 special Pages, the following 42 titles are my current cream-of-the-crop.

And, before you scan the list and start clicking on titles that interest you, I should account for the fact that the first most popular on the list has been viewed so many more times than the second most popular.

It’s one of the Truths of blogging that people who take the time to read a blog want to know who’s writing it; so, the “About” page is usually the most visited.

And, for the average of 56 people a day coming to this blog, about 3 of them are checking out who I am.

They’re probably also the folks who are reading a whole post :-)
