Thoughts on Fantasy just turned three! Well, it actually turned three back at the start of this month but I am bad at keeping track of these things, so I only just noticed. It’s strange to think it’s been 3 years since I sat there figuring out how to use Wordpress and nervously hit “publish” on my first post. At least I’ve done a little bit of redesigning this year, so things don’t look quite the same as they did back then.
Anyway, a huge thank you to everyone who has followed along, liked, shared or taken the time to comment! I’m going to celebrate in my usual nostalgic fashion by selecting the 6 “top” posts from the past year, as well as my favourite search term:
Four Most Popular Posts
- How Long Should a Fantasy Book Be?
- The Most German Fairy Tales
- Why Auroras Are Like Magic
- How a Book Gets My Attention
Post With The Most Search Traffic
My Favourite Post
- Poisons, Antidotes and Remedies in Fantasy – because I learned some fascinating (and chilling) details about real-world poisons when researching it (the articles I learned them from are linked to in the post) and because it was a nice excuse to use some great photos a friend of mine took on our visit to the German Pharmacy Museum.
Best Search Term That Led Someone Here
“making a fantasy world globe”
… because now I totally want to do that (and no, I don’t have any posts about it). Actually, I am probably too lazy to make one, so I just want an awesome one to magically appear on my shelf. Maybe of Arda. Or Westeros. Preferably fashioned with precious stones or etched metal or some other antique-looking material. Take note, universe!
