I actually just started my very first blog! It isn't anything special. I started it in the hopes that newer writes, such as myself, could relate to it.

I actually got annoyed enough that I blogged about my lack of flirt options in Star Wars: The Old Republic.

Hi all

I've just done a post about my Blog's first month live.

Includes views, visitors, popular posts etc, so figure it could be useful for some people to compare, or for those just starting a Blog, a chance to try some new tools to help analyse your progress better

What can i say, i'm a stat geek

Click Here

Anybody else have any experiences they wish to share about starting a Blog? I'd be interested to know when a tipping point occurred and your Blog started to see big increases in views

Also, anybody else use other tools to analyse their blog?

Matt (Turndog Millionaire)

In honor of the launch of the charity anthology Resilience, I wrote a guest post on Pat McDermott's blog, about the power an author has to affect kids' self-image.

I've got the sales stats for e-readers and tablets over Xmas. They show that e-readers are cool.

Camden's Story

I'm currently training for the San Diego Rock N Roll Marathon on June 3rd, 2012. I'm also trying to raise money to help with research to cure blood cancers. Tonight I posted my nephew's story about his scare with a blood cancer. My sister wrote a bulk of it, as my guest blogger, but either way, it's worth the read.
