Blog Post Resume

After some more than three years of ‘Writer’s Treasure Chest,’ I got curious. I have, of course, shared the most remarkable highlights with all of you. For example my three year blogging anniversary, my 1,000th blog post or my 1,000th follower.

What had me curious this time was, which of my blog posts were the most successful.
It was a surprising list, I admit.

1. (unknown or deleted) This was a poem I once wrote for my ex-boyfriend. Since he didn’t deserve it, I decided to delete it from my blog.
2. How to describe the perfect kissing scene
3. Analogies and Metaphors
4. Romance, Seduction, Taste – A Sexy Male Protagonist
5. 1st Halloween-Poem Contest
6. Fairy Tales reloaded – PG16
7. BOAW – Blog Fest 2016: Beauty changes during the time
8. How to promote on “Writer’s Treasure Chest.”
9. How to find a title for your book
10. Winter Wonderland
11. Author Spotlight – Renee Schuls-Jacobson
12. Featured Author – Interview – The return of Darlene Foster
13. How to start your own Author Newsletter
14. Author Marketing Support 2017 – here on Writer’s Treasure Chest
15. BOAW – Blog Fest – Girl Boner Entry – PG-18

I’m very proud that the list of these 15 most successful blog posts on my blog is a healthy mix of different posts I wrote through the time.

It contains a couple of poems, a few posts about writing and book marketing, Author Spotlights and the posts I wrote for August McLaughlin’s ‘Beauty of a Woman’s Blogfest.’

To me, this tells me, that every post on ‘Writer’s Treasure Chest’ was worth the time and efforts, the thoughts, the worries and the smiles invested.

Thank you all for being part of my blogging adventure.

Author Spotlight Gilda Evans

Welcome Gilda Evans!

1. When did you start writing?

I’ve written my whole life – it’s always been a very natural form of expression for me. I remember winning my first writing contest for poetry when I was nine years old.

2. What motivates you to write?

It can be any number of things. Usually the more passionate I feel about a particular subject, whether fiction or non-fiction, the more easily the writing flows. In the case of my upcoming book, S’LIFE, Slices of Life for Teens, I was motivated by the need for and dearth of this type material I perceived for my target age group of 13-17 year olds. I wanted to create a comprehensive and vetted resource for teens that addresses many of the salient issues they face every day in a way that would keep my audience engaged and inspired.

3. What genre do you write in and what made you chose this particular genre?

I write both fiction and non-fiction. My interest in children’s relationships, particularly those between teens and their peers and parents, began years ago when I associate produced a television documentary titled, What Are We Doing to Our Children? S’LIFE, Slices of Life for Teens was created to facilitate and improve communication among teens, and between teens and their parents and educators. I believe that the no-nonsense style the book is written in appeals to teens because it was developed with teens’ involvement, instead of authoritatively isolating and alienating them.

4. What is your goal in writing? Do you have dreams where your writing should take you?

Whether it helps someone gain a new perspective and insight about themselves or life in general, or simply gives them a needed, enjoyable break from their daily routine, my goal is that my writing be a source of inspiration and entertainment.

5. Do you ever suffer from writer’s block and if yes, how do you deal with it?

Of course! Any writer who says that it never happens isn’t being honest. The most effective method I’ve found to get beyond it when it occurs is to have a change of scenery. Usually getting out into nature to clear my head is the best.

6. What advice would you like to give new, hopeful authors?

It sounds cliché, but just keep writing! Focus on what you know or things that inspire you and create a fire inside that just won’t go out unless you get it down on paper or into a computer file!

7. Please, tell us about your work.

S’LIFE, Slices of Life for Teens is a concise, accessible and humorous book covering just about every major topic of concern in a teen’s life. It gently, yet boldly guides the reader through the various issues and scenarios in an educational and inspirational manner. It is written in a format that speaks with both the adult and teen voices to the teen and parent reader alike. This book’s appeal is universal and it teaches its audience to approach their challenges in a realistic, positive and constructive way. It is also intended to facilitate and improve communication among teens, and between teens and their parents and educators. It is unique in its format and approach, as it incorporates feedback from clinical psychologists, academicians from the field of education and the target teen audience itself. When finished, the reader will feel energized, enthusiastic and far more insightful about growing up on one hand, raising a teen on the other and life in general on both sides. Not only will they want to read and refer to this book time and again, but they will also look forward to the other books that follow in the series.

Thank you for being my guest. It was such a pleasure to have you here!!

1000 Posts On WordPress


Last month WordPress told me that I had published my 1,000th blog post on ‘Writer’s Treasure Chest.’ 

Another achievement in my blogging life has been accomplished.

I don’t deny I’m quite proud of this one. 1,000 blog posts over roughly three years are something. But then, I have to say:

Part of these blog posts aren’t mine – they are YOURS!

I built ‘Writer’s Treasure Chest’ as a writer’s blog, and that’s how it grew. With your help, it became what it is now, and I hope, of course, it will further grow. But without your help, this wouldn’t have been working out.

The Author Spotlights, the re-blogs, the guest posts, the blog tours, the promotions, that wasn’t my work, it was yours!

Thanks so much for your work, for permitting me to re-blog, to pingback, to promote, to interview you! Thanks for making my blog a wonderful experience. Thank you for your help!

3-Year-Anniversary Of ‘Writer’s Treasure Chest’

March 5, 2018 I found a new achievement on WordPress:

 

 

I’m very excited to be a blogger of 3 years this month.

Writer’s Treasure Chest has grown significantly in the past year.

970 posts

over 5,500 comments

1,015 followers

and

almost 80 guests

I’m so lucky to be part of the blogging world with all your help. Without guests, friends, followers, supporters and people encouraging me again and again this blogging adventure would not have been progressing at this pace and wouldn’t have been as successful as it is.

To all of you:

Writer’s Treasure Chest’s New Look

It’s been year’s end. The stress of Christmas was over, and for a few days I got time to breathe and relax – or so I thought. Until I was informed that my wonderful blog theme has been retired and was recommended to pick a new blog theme and update ‘Writer’s Treasure Chest.’

Since I prefer my ‘theme’ not only on my blog but also on my different social media accounts as well as on my Website I worked like crazy on updating nearly every single one of my accounts.

I was a bit sad to see my ‘pink balloons’ gone.

That meant I had to think of something else. A few days ago I decided to go into the new year with this beautiful fantasy book picture. It took me hours to find what I was looking for, and since I’m a woman, another few hours to pick one of the prepared pictures. I love this one because it expresses so much the degree of fantasy my stories take.

Maybe one day I might find something else for me, but right now, ‘Writer’s Treasure Chest’ has a new look.

I hope you’ll like it as much as I do.

Merry Christmas – 2017

2017 has been a quite reflective and, to a certain degree, a relaxing year in my life. I made progress with my writing, accomplished a lot of things and decided in what direction my future will be heading.

I don’t deny it was hard at times, but this ain’t the first, nor will it be the last time I’m going through rough times.

It was the time I was enjoying, I was grateful, I was annoyed, angry and still, never forgot my humor. It was a time I once again, learned who my true friends are.

I gained so much in 2017!

And once again, I was able to connect with many new people here online. Knowing people better and getting even closer to some followers, friends, writers, supporters, readers and many more.

THANK YOU!

for making this journey a memorable one for me!

Now there’s not much more left to say, except that I wish you and your families:
