    1. You can see all except the word count, which I have because I prepare all my posts in an MSWord document, which is getting bigger and bigger. That was the one thing that stopped me in my tracks – the thought that I’ve written the equivalent of a novel, in blog posts!

          1. It certainly shocked me when I realised – especially as I have made so little progress on Novel Number Two in the last few months. But to get a book deal out of a blog…. I think you have to be a whistle-blower or a call-girl, or something like that! 😉

  1. V interesting stats. I must have a look see at mine. I’m intrigued by the explosion that follows Freshly Pressed. I only heard about it the other day (or more like only registered what it was about). Sounds a bit like a lottery win for collecting followers!

    1. Being Freshly Pressed gave my blog a serious boost. I was struggling, blogging once a month or so, and wondering why I bothered, with subscribers in single figures. Freshly Pressed threw me into the midst of the blogosphere and the things that make blogging fun… engagement, comments, conversation and blogging buddies across the world. If ever the Freshly Pressed people come calling, welcome them in with open arms!
