- This surprise hit of the year was successful for a few reasons. First, it had a very searchable title [smile, wink], secondly it was on a topic that every writer/blogger struggles with at some point ("How many words do I need?"). Lastly, someone else posted this on Reddit in the /r/books subreddit and people clicked the living hell out of it. It's now my most viewed post of all time.
- This post on the decline of handwriting and how I could care less seemed to resonate with a lot of people. For some reason there are those who still think it should be taught in schools - in English class (I say leave it for art class and teach more useful skills in English).
- Another successful post mostly because it's a topic that just about every blogger has had to make a decision on at some point ("Do I moderate the comments on my blog?"). If you've read my blog before then you know that I do not, however, please be respectful.

- The easiest way to get people to comment on your blog is to hold a contest in which the winner must comment on the post to win. The actual contest was secondary to the fun guessing game I put together in order to share a bit more information with my readers.
- Honourable Mention to "Your Comment is Awaiting Moderation", September 1
- Worth noting as it was a non-contest post AND it was about blog comments!

My favourite post:
- "Equality Means Equal", June 29, 10th most viewed post in 2013
- I like this post because it speaks directly to how I feel about the issue of equal rights for all humans. Equality is an absolute. There is no room for interpretation. Get on board with it.
