2012 in review: my blog

It has been a good year for me as a writer, editor, and blogger.

In particular, I’d like to mention NaPoWriMo 2012, NaHaiWriMo, the postcard poetry challenge in August 2012, and PaPoWriMo 2012 with the poet Jennifer Bullis in the fall. Oh, and I’ve been working on my collection of linked short stories since November;
I believe I’ve made excellent progress on this project.

In 2012, I ramped up my output. Most importantly, I ramped up the quality of my output!

Thank you to all of my readers and followers. I’m so grateful that you are visiting my blog, and reading–and commenting on–my posts.

I especially want to thank my “five most active commenters”–Jennifer Bullis, tsena, sonofwalt, Jilanne Hoffman, and Lisa Stillman. Deep bow to each of you!

Finally, I’d like to thank WordPress for its fine blogging platform and for its ease of use.
I am very grateful to WordPress, too!

Please read the highlights below!

Blessings to you and yours, Andy
