As I think I might have mentioned, I have struggled to choose one winner this week. At last, I think I have picked one but it was not at all easy.
The theme was why I write in my genre – a question that not all professionals can answer. You each approached the theme in a different way and I was deeply impressed with each and every post I read. You are a very talented bunch.
Below I have listed all the posts that I found. If yours is not here then I did not find it. I checked the pings & comments, the regulars, and the Facebook group. Only four of you commented a link or pinged the blog I awarded you four non-countable bonus points which are only redeemable for bragging rights. (If you need help linking).
- Kentish Rambler
- Stories from the Edge
- Night of the Hats
- Artimis Blake
- The Joy of Words
- Writer without a clue
Up to this point, there have always been seven or eight of you but some of you took a week off. At least I hope you did because I would feel terrible if I missed anyone out.
Now for the winners. Drum roll, please.
Best Comment and Most Comments
Jess Joy was the runaway winner this week in terms of comment count. Posting something fun and easy to engage with can do wonders for getting comments going. This is a great platform building technique in and of itself.
The most commented post was also the home of some amazing comments. Many of the comments mimicked the style of the post and it looks like you all had a lot of fun with it. So I am awarding Ansteysp the best comment prize.
This week I am awarding the prize to Artimis Blake’s “Why do I write in my Genre”. While every single last post was a contender for the prize, for different reasons this post spoke to me where I live. This is purely chance, I think, but as I have to choose just one and it was so very, very close…
From a platform building perspective, this post is very good content because it is something fans and the press can quote easily.
Over to you
Feel free to heap likes, comments, praise, and general congratulations to our winners.
There is no right or wrong answer here, who would you choose as the winner from this set?
