My Top Five Blog Posts of 2017

Like many of the blogs I frequent, I’d thought I’d take a quick look back at 2017, and answer the question I’m sure everyone is wondering about. 

Just what were my top five blog posts of 2017?  But before that (sorry, but I’m a mystery/suspense writer), a couple of observations.

First, reads definitely increased over the year.  All of the top five are July or later.  Where posts were getting dozens of reads in the first quarter, they were in the hundreds by the end of the year.  Thank you!

Second, the top five are heavily book reviews (4 out of 5).  That makes sense, as I am a book blogger.  But I also write about writing in general and of course, I have the occasional self-promotion post (sorry, but I gotta eat).

Interestingly, if I opened this list up to 2016, a couple of non-book review posts would show up including:

http://brucemperrin.blogspot.com/2016/10/in-space-of-atom-cover-release.html - I love this cover, but who knew it would get so much attention; and


So, the suspense is high enough.  Here’s my top five posts from 2017.

5.  http://brucemperrin.blogspot.com/2017/07/you-gotta-love-optimism.html – a tongue-in-cheek about TBR lists on Goodreads.  It got a ton of reads on Facebook too.




Drum roll please…


Happy writing…and blog reading too,
