Me and Forum Romanum

Now it’s December, I thought I’d look back to see what the most popular posts have been.  Is it a competition? No, it’s a mystery!

In 2013 and 2014 combined  (in traditional reverse order)

10. The Alternation of Rome – About creating an alternative timeline and how Roma Nova was born

9. PERFIDITAS book trailer – As it says!

8. How Romans celebrated spring – part of a spring blog hop organised by the SilverWood Books authors

7. Applying research – an essential skill for writers

6. My London Book Fair – Day 1 – a gas of a day!

5. Shedding light on the Roman dusk – Was there any light for Europe when the Roman Empire ended?

4. Roman dating essentials – Your think your diary is complex?

3. INCEPTIO – about the first Roma Nova book

2. Does a writer still need an agent? – Carole Blake, super agent, speaks

And the surprise winner is


Marcus Aurelius

1. The Antonine plague – the germs that killed and empire
(I have enquired about this and apparently, my post is now used as a source for students writing history essays!)

The top category visited was ‘Writing skills‘ and the favourite page was ‘About‘, i.e. me!

I wonder what will be 2015’s top post will be…

    Very interesting Alison. I have that same thing as a note to myself. Some of my jposts just seem to go off into a black hole and other live on and on !

    Strange, isn’t it? And sometimes it’s the one you dash off that gets shared and RT’d and others you really worked on vanish after a day.
    But I think it’s like all social media – all a matter of chance!
