Well there you have it, my top 10 posts of 2015 for both IHeartAllStories and Paving My Author’s Road. Of course, they were some adjustments as blog pages weren’t included. And as you can see Everything You Need to Know About Twitter Pitch made it to the top 10 on both blogs. Although it did better on PMAR than IHAS. Why? It can be many things. For example WordPress is the more popular blogging platform. Which helped that particular blog post reach further reading potential than Weebly. Also,  it’s only recently (less than a year most likely) that I’ve been using hashtags to promote my blogs posts. Even so, it still made the top 10 twice. So a congratulations is in order!

As well as a thank you.

I thank you and these blog posts thank you. For following, reading, commenting and enjoying the posts this year. I had a great blogging year because of you. And hope to have another…no even better blogging year together with you in 2016.

Thank you again and Happy New Year’s!
