  1. If this blog is on fire it seems like more of a low roaring flame, but I am awfully glad there were any flames at all.

  2. This is pretty amazing. Mind throwing me some readers? I would love to talk to you soon. I sure miss you.

  3. I find that the main drivers have been:
    1) Tags including highly searchable phrases or names related to my posts
    2) A photo with each post
    3) Putting the word out with links on Twitter and FB as soon as I have a new post
    4) Lots of links to other sites within my posts
    5) A snappy opening phrase and headline. It’s funny, but no matter what kind of story I write, a lot of times people won’t read it if the headline or first line doesn’t hook them.

    Wanna do lunch some weekend soon? Happy new year to you and the list!
