Day Ten: Post 200!!!

For my 200th post I revisited the other 199.  Below are some of my  favorite blog posts from the two and a half  years and why they are my favorite.

I hope if you’re reading this for the ebook give-away that you will follow the blog and/or Facebook page/twitter feed and continue to read future posts.  I am working very hard to complete my next three books and I need ready readers not only to help me as beta readers to refine the drafts, but to help promote my work.  I have a day job and a young family, so my reach is limited, but with your help my writing “hobby” may one day become a career.  Please share my blog with others!

So, here are my favorite series and individual posts. What’s your favorite post? Tell me below for a chance to win a free  ecopy of Heart Warriors.

Open Letters Series
With the open letters I have a little fun with the absurdities of life. As I’m prone to make people cry with deep writing, it’s nice to have a lighter side.

The Lay of The Heartland SeriesThis is really an extension of the Amand-i-festo from Heart Warriors.

The following posts I love because I went there with absolute honesty and I’m proud of that:
Hope Snorts
Thoughts on My Fatherless Life
At the Edge of the Bubble

These posts were written straight from my heart:
It Can’t Be Bought
Don’t Blink
The Half Life of Parenting and Other Things

Finally, this was my most popular post ever, getting more than 5,000 hits in one day the day I posted it.  I wish my blog got 5,000 hits every day! This is my piss and vinegar post. An Open Letter to Shaun White
