Since I encourage my coaching clients to celebrate their wins and breakthroughs for 2010 before envisioning what they want to accomplish in 2011, I thought I’d share this Blog Review that WordPress was kind enough to send me. You might be surprised by some of the stats — I know I was surprised and gratified to learn for example that 10 Reasons Every Writer Should Have a Dog was my most popular (or should I say pup-ular?) post on the blog’s busiest day.
My deepest thanks to all of you who’ve shared this journey with me by reading, subscribing, and recommending my blog to your writer friends. I hope BaneOfYourResistance continues to inspire and encourage you to keep showing up for your writing throughout 2011 and beyond.
