It's Over

Farewell 2020

Thanks to everyone who visited this site in 2020. You came from far and wide, according to my WordPress statistics. The top five countries viewing my blog were: United States, Canada, United Kingdom, India and, for reasons which escape me, Palestinian Territories. China also snuck in there.

My writer’s ego wanted to believe everyone came to read about the stories I got published, but most traffic came primarily to view The Short List, which now features 1,500 entries. There were 310 additions to the list this year, an average of 26 new publications per month.

Other than Facebook, Twitter and WordPress Reader, the top five referrers to this blog were JMWW, Sandra Seamans, Christopher Fielden and Scribofile. Many, many others contributed to the increased amount of views this year. Thank you.

The Short List is for writers of flash fiction and short prose. The list is organized by word count, providing links to the submission guidelines and potential publication. These were the top five publication links that were clicked this year: Black Hare Press, City River Tree, Flash Frontier and Unstamatic. I also keep an ever-growing list of departed publications. A moment of silence for those we lost this year.

Here’s to a Happy New Year and for more words in print in 2021. Please be safe.
