Perhaps readers and publishers want to know about writers—or, my visitors are all writers interested in publishing who, of course, also read :-)

But, since it’s the last day of the year, at least in my time zone, I’ll share my New Year’s Resolution before listing those Top 5 posts:

“…to analyse but not reduce, to ponder meaning but not dwell on words, to identify distinct areas of action but not compartmentalize… to work with full and complex thoughts and to achieve understanding…”.

I found those words in a letter from The Universal House of Justice.

I’ll attempt, over the coming year, to fulfill those precepts, in all aspects of my life, but especially in my blogging for Readers, Writers, and Publishers

Now, the Top 5 Posts of 2014 (Do note that none of them were written in 2014—meaning folks found them with searches that matched the Keyword–Tags I used.  Plus, the number of views listed for each are only the views they got in 2014for instance, No. 1 has gotten a total of 912 views since it was published)

    Interesting analysis, suggesting the longevity of worthwhile posts, and not their immediacy. Over 300 views would be riches to me! An encouragement to keep going. Thank you. And HNY!

      I always use 8 tags on a post and try to make them what folks might put in a search bar…
