Hello, faithful readers! I received a notice from WordPress today with my blog stats for 2013. I thought you might like to know what posts were your favorites, at least, according to the number of views they received.
First place winner was “Cousins’ Camp,” with all the photos we took up in Perryville, Arkansas, at the Heifer, International Ranch when we visited with the granddaughters in July.
Second place, “An Unexpected Turn,” was my account of that terrible attack of vertigo I suffered in August!
Third place was “Friendly Neighbors,” the story about the snag we ran into when power-washing the house in June.
Fourth place, “What a Character,” included the short story, “Revenge,” written in the voice of a dead teen-ager who was bullied.
Fifth place, “Close Calls,” was my account of when I almost collided with another car as I turned left onto my street.
It’s interesting that four out of the five were first person accounts. You told me last year you liked to read personal anecdotes, and that definitely proved to be true. The only fiction piece in the top five this year was the story “Revenge,” although many of you did tell me you were moved by that powerful story.
All in all, Southern Story Lady has received 4,784 views and 326 comments. I’m excited about that!
Thank you so much for your support! It’s fun to know you’re out there, reading my work, and offering your comments.
I hope each of you has a great 2014!
