Recap Week 2020 Blog, Linkfest

Blogging About Blogging

 
Awareness of the outside world. Wondering about Nashville. Contacted friends who live even vaguely near. As one does.

The blog kept going. Everything else treaded water. For 2020, that counts as victory. “So that’s my schedule: blog, bike for exercise, horses, stare into space.” Still true, although more walking than biking recently. Maybe 2021 will bring a more optimistic direction for all of us. [Blogging In A Time Of Crisis] May

One Thing That Changed
This year, I took the plunge into current events.

[Wishful Thinking, The New Normal, Non-Fiction Version] April

[Whither?] April

Started Mood on Monday posts in May. Have done 18. Until I create an archive, they can be found by typing Mood or “Mood on Monday” in the search box at the top of the post. [The Mood On Monday, The Ugly Bits] May

Started Awareness of the Outside World introductions. Off & on. [3000 Dots] June 10. [Mood On Monday, When?] June 15. Started regularly [Doctor Whooves Is Going Places] June 19. In response to the explanation post, y’all said to keep on with it. [State of the Blog, Awareness of the Outside World, Taking a Poll on a New Feature]

One Thing That Almost Changed
In August, I announced that I was reducing the blogload … [State Of The Blog: Weekends Completely Off]

… and then I decided not to. [State of the Blog, Weekends NOT off]

Stayed with weekend posting but made it less daunting. Have to keep reminding self that blog is not a comprehensive documentary. At most, it is a highlights reel.

One Thing Doesn’t Change
I have a hard time picking favorite posts. I conflate form with content. For example, I’m very fond of the Virtual Tevis series. Is that because the posts were gems of the blogging art? No. Or because I enjoyed the VT? Yes! [Tevis Archives]

Picking my fav section is easy …

Technically, the stats are for the past 365 days as of yesterday rather than for the calendar year of 2020. Barring a recap post going viral, these should represent. Although, there was a slight shake-up in the all-time list since I drafted this last week. Anything could happen. But I digress.
