I just looked over my WordPress report for Writing Whims in 2013 and am pleased with the results. When I started writing this blog, I wasn’t sure if it would be of interest to others. I wasn’t even sure the form it would take.
Early in 2013, I decided to begin two new features, Author Wednesday and Book Review Friday. I began Author Wednesday in March with Rachelle Ayala. I’ve also since reviewed two of her books, Hidden Under Her Heart and Knowing Vera. As well as being a prolific author, Rachelle also supports Indie Authors. She’s been a great source of information and friendship as I ventured into the world of the Indie Author almost two years ago. Thank you, Rachelle, for always being an inspiration.
During 2013, Writing Whims was viewed by folks in eighty-seven different countries. That statistic blew my mind. Eighty-seven countries? How is that possible? The Internet may seem to narrow our focus to the computer screen but it certainly broadens the scope of our reach through words.
The post that received the most comments came from one of my favorite writers and bloggers, Hazy Shades of Me. Hazy and I started our blogs around the same time and somehow connected through this tiny/huge world of blogging. She inspires me with her creative posts that I stand back and admire. She’s a gem, and I hope you’ll hop on over to her blog, named what else, but Hazy Shades of Me. You won’t be disappointed.
I would also like to thank the folks who made the most comments on Writing Whims in 2013.

I follow all of these writers’ blogs and am always pleased when they drop by as well as everyone else. Here’s to an even better 2014 of blogging.
