I'm over at Laura Pauling's blog today, talking about "Attraction, Repulsion, Connection: Romance is More than Hotness" and a little about Never Gone's romantic subplot. It's my first blog ramble visit, so please come say hello. Or debate my viewpoint about what makes truly memorable romantic plots (hint: it's not great hair).
Meanwhile, I've signed up for a blog hop for the first time in, er... a pretty darned long time. And because of that I've lost some great opportunities to meet amazing people.
So when I heard about the Follow-Swap Blog Hop, I thought it seemed just the ticket. The purpose of the hop is simply to meet people, read a post they consider one of their best and make new connections. Click on the grid of smileys over in the sidebar for more information.
And if you're joining me from the hop and my link was wonky, I shared one of my "editor-on-call" posts about how to avoid shifting tenses. Yes, I have more recent helpful posts too. Click the "editor-on-call" label. And thanks for visiting!
Do you even take a peek at your stats, just to see what posts resonate with readers? I quite surprised by the posts that get the most page views: my National Poetry Month spotlight on concrete poems, the photos of my hubby's Dr. Who snowflakes, my deep analyses of Neville Longbottom and Severus Snape, my explanation of why I struggle to write autobiographical work.
Old friends, which of my posts have you enjoyed most? The grammar/useage posts? The deep characterization posts? My analytical posts? My Harry Potter posts? Some other category?
New friends, what do you look for in blogs you follow?
