TOPIC: Blog Highlights during 2011

What a year 2011 was - a lot of ground covered in blog posts - guest authors, craft articles, a heap of links, some more interviews and some fun stuff.

I'd like to thank everyone who appeared as a guest author or who agreed to be interviewed during the year - there were a lot of wonderfully generous people who said "Yes" when I emailed them with my request. You've made 2011 a memorable year for my readers. Thank you!!!

I thought I'd go back and list the top posts on my blog for 2011 - a trip down memory lane...

By far the most viewed page on my blog was Flooding In Australia (to date 5500 page views) - the year certainly kicked off with a slew of natural disasters, with the worst floods across Australia occurring in Dec.2010 & Jan.2011.

Which Hero Turns the Page for You was another popular read (nearly 800 page views). I guess we love our heroes and like to see which ones we have in common.

My long awaited first cover - VENGEANCE BORN - drum roll please... - came in with 450 page views. Yay!

Top 5 guest author interviews (whether they were interviewed in 2011 or not & in no particular order):
