365 Days of Inspiration: Our Readers’ Favorite Stories on Writing and Building Community

WordPress announced their top ten blog posts for 2017. Blogging and community were the most popular subjects. Who knew? I just about fainted when I saw #3. Take a look!

Discover WordPress

We’ve shared more than 900 posts on Discover in 2017 — from Editors’ Picks spanning dozens of topics and niches to in-depth interviews with writers and artists. Looking at the posts our readers clicked with (and clicked on) the most, we see one theme emerging: you love listening to bloggers speak about what matters most to them, whether it’s writing, finding an audience, or making a connection with others.

Below are our 10 most popular Discover features of 2017. We share them here as a celebration of the diverse voices that make up our community, and also as a resource for months and years to come. If you’re ever in need of a nudge to create, to speak up, or to tell the world about your passions and struggles, be sure to revisit this list.

    1. Awww! Thanks so much, Suzanne! I really appreciate it. Posting about awards makes me feel uncomfortable. I’m very grateful and humbled.
      I’m writing a post on how to be Discovered and hope it help others!


  1. You certainly deserve this, Susie. You have always gone out of your way to help other bloggers improve their post and their sites. I particularly like how you try to get us to meet and visit each other to increase our readership and get to know other blog types.

    I am shocked though that they don’t recognize those of us who work tirelessly to elucidate other bloggers about sarcasm and sardonicism in writing. And here I thought being a smart-ass was a well-grounded career choice. Go figure.


    1. Hahaha! I needed your humor, Al! It’s a gray day in Boulder and I’m about to get back to work on my WIP. This was the break I needed.

      Editors have funny bones too. You never know!

      Thanks so much. I’m overdue for a party. I’ll plan one soon!


  2. This will come as no surprise to anyone who follows your blog. I’d say it was an obvious choice. You have done and shared so much with your blogging community I can’t think of anyone who deserves it more.


  3. Yes, echoing everyone else’s thoughts that you deserve it!

    (If it makes you feel better, it’s pouring here in the San Francisco bay area and I’m also wrestling with my WIP… so you’re not alone. But you knew that :-).)


    1. Thanks so much, Audrey!
      Wow. That’s a superstorm since it’s raining in LA too. I hope it comes this way! It’s been too dry in Colorado and the slopes are dangerous. We could use the snow!
      Yep! I figure if I write every day, it’ll be done soon unless it becomes epic. Ha!


  4. That is a good start to the year. I went to it and explored the other writers’ blogs too and yours as well. Being rated 3rd is fantastic and I hope many others find and read your blogs on a regular basis.Keep on blogging and I’ll keep on reading and will add the occasional comment as needed.


    1. Thanks so much! I reached out to one of the other featured bloggers and she had no idea! I’ve been working my way through the 365 list and have learned a few things. 🙂
      I’ll look forward to your comments!
