What Was Your Favorite Post You Wrote in 2015?

With the end of the year approaching, we asked a few writers and artists to tell us about their favorite blog post they put together in 2015.

The last few weeks of the year are the perfect time to look back and reflect on our most memorable work, so we asked a few bloggers to tell us about one blog post they put together in 2015 that they especially liked. Here are their responses.

Favorite post: “How I experienced the life of a model, with Gudrun Sjoden”

stockholm-diary-p1-myfanwy-tristram

I think I’d have to say that my favorite post was my account of traveling to Stockholm in Sweden to be an unlikely fashion model; it describes a rare and treasured couple of days, and then I got to relive the pleasure all over again by drawing and sharing it on WordPress.com! The comments were so warm and appreciative that I really got the feeling I’d added just a little bit of joy to the internet.

It was a welcome affirmation that people enjoy my view of the world, even if that view comes from a middle-aged aficionado of thrift shopping. That’s one of the real pleasures of blogging: showing who you are, and finding the people that appreciate that.

Favorite post: “Searching for the String: Labyrinths in Classical and Medieval Art”

My favorite post is actually about labyrinths. When I was younger, my favorite movie was Labyrinth (1986). The film spoke to my already steadfast love of muppets and no doubt fostered an early appreciation for David Bowie, but it was the movie’s maze — a character in the movie in its own right — that stuck with me year after year.

screen-shot-2015-11-19-at-12-22-22-pmAfter graduating high school, I decided to become a classicist, and began to learn more about the ancient origins of the labyrinth. Although mazes and even the word labyrinth predate the myth, it is the Greek tale of Theseus and the Minotaur that gave us the famed Labyrinth of Crete (as it turns out, Jim Henson was also a fan of the myth.) In Greco-Roman antiquity, the symbol of the labyrinth became popular on coins, in mosaics, and in various literary works. Although you might think the pagan myth would die out in the transition to the early Christian period, it was again adapted for new purposes well into the Middle Ages and again in the Renaissance. The labyrinth, in its various iterations, often served as a metaphor for life in general. Whether a Greek or a medieval pilgrim, any person can relate to the feeling of being lost and searching for the string that Ariadne provided Theseus to allow him to escape.

In my own professional quest, I moved four times in the past six years: Chapel Hill, Lexington, Milwaukee, Iowa City. Along the way, I have gained and lost relationships, lamented how long it would be until I saw my family again, and wondered if there was any real purpose to this academic labyrinth. It took a lot of heartache, but I finally feel like I found the string I am supposed to follow. The reason the labyrinth has remained a malleable symbol for so long is that it speaks to humanity’s persistent questions of purpose, salvation, and creation. At the end of Labyrinth the movie, young Sarah realizes her own power to solve the puzzle and to escape the grasp of Jareth (David Bowie). She discovers that she is the heroine of her own story, and I guess I had to learn something similar. Perhaps that is why this is one of my favorite blog posts this year.

Tommy Tomlinson

Favorite post: “Our Old Dog”

FredYou always hear that you should tell people how much they mean to you before it’s too late. I’m not sure how this applies to pets, but I wanted to write something about our dog, Fred, before he got to the end. He was such a big part of our lives. After I wrote this piece I heard from readers all over the world who shared memories of the pets they loved. It was one more moment of beauty that Fred was responsible for.

Catherine Ryan Howard

Favorite post: “I’ve Been Bursting To Tell You: I Got a Book Deal!”

I remember quite clearly setting up my very first WordPress.com blog in early 2010. A few months earlier, I’d made the drastic decision to quit my awful, soul-destroying office job and use what little savings I had to go “all in” on my dream of being a published novelist. Part of my plan was to self-publish some non-fiction and use the proceeds to keep myself in coffee grounds and ink cartridges (both crucial novel-writing tools, I’ll have you know), and the blog was where I was going to publicly chronicle my self-publishing (mis?)adventures.

I had to admit why I was doing it, which meant I had to publicly declare my goal of being a published novelist. I remember thinking, What if it never happens? What if I never get to write “the” blog post? What happens if the end of this journey is a quiet fade into public failure?

littlecatThe next five years were one hell of a ride. My posts about self-publishing were a hit and they helped make my self-published books hits too. I began to speak on the subject, got a job working with a major publishing house as a social media marketer, and connected, through my blog, with fellow writers all over the world — some of whom became good friends in real life.

Then, in May of this year, I got to write the blog post I’d been dreaming of writing ever since I started my blog back in 2010, the one in which I shared the news I’d been dreaming of having all my life (as evidenced by the photo I included in it, one of me aged 7 or 8 banging away on the typewriter Santa gave me while Barbie’s Pink Magic Van sits to the side). Now I’ll be using my blog to chronicle my next adventure: my debut thriller will be published by Corvus/Atlantic in Ireland and the U.K. on May 5, 2016.

Where will your blog take you?

Sarah Kelly, Extra Dry Martini

Favorite post: “The Beach”

img_4997

Extra Dry Martini is my diary. I document my life, and in particular, the challenges inherent in navigating an uncertain future while trying to heal from tremendous loss and grief. My writing is raw and honest, but also, I believe, hopeful, and ultimately about redemption. This year has been a rollercoaster — with incredible highs and lows — so when WordPress.com asked me to pick my favorite post, it felt a bit like asking me to pick my favorite moment from the whirlwind that was 2015.

I settled on “the beach,” a piece I wrote this summer that’s essentially a love letter to the place where I grew up. It’s a place where all of my happiest childhood memories are contained, but also a place that harbors a great darkness underneath the sunshine and saltwater and sea air. I didn’t realize it at the time of publication, but the beach would also end up being the place I’d travel to a mere six weeks later to see my beloved grandfather through hospice.

In good times and bad, the beach is my constant. Writing this post made me realize just how important this place is, both in my life, and in my writing.

Anne Thériault, The Belle Jar

Favorite post: “Being a Girl: A Brief Personal History of Violence”

10385463_10154373034305215_8972420320531447358_nI chose this post because it came from such a place of personal vulnerability and yet seemed to resonate with so many people. I think that all women have stories similar to mine — a fact that’s both infuriating and a sort of unifying force. It’s so powerful to understand that our experiences of misogyny aren’t unique. They didn’t happen because of anything we did or because we were just in the wrong place at the wrong time. They happened because we live in a culture that dehumanizes women. I also think my post was a sort of wake up call for a lot of men who maybe don’t realize how relentless and grinding misogyny is. I hope that’s the case, anyway. Because as much as women can push back against all the awful sexist stuff we endure day in and day out, the only people who can end the behaviors of men is men.

    My ‘favourite’ post, if ‘favourite’ is the right word, was on my Leytonstone Today blog the night of 5 December, when a man suspected of being an ISIS sympathiser attacked people at the tube (underground) station and brought Leytonstone in London to international prominence for all the wrong reasons. Of all the posts I’ve ever made this one seemed the most poignant and purposeful, putting the other side to hatred and violence. The post received the highest number of page views since the site was created and was published before the news had broken on the BBC (I got the news initially from Twitter). I hope it made a small contribution, along with all the other people posting on social media, to providing a more reasoned view to the world than one of bigotry and hatred. http://wp.me/p1Opss-16j. Thank you WordPress for your contribution in providing the platform.

    My favorite 2015 article is simply titled “Epilogue”, and it also happened to be the hardest article for me to write. It describes my personal perceived failure as a blogger, even though I was able to achieve a steady readership of about 7,000 article reads per month in 2015. Why did I think I failed? Well, I was not able to engage, entice, beg, or otherwise interest a single person, company, or entity (i.e., WordPress) to ask me key questions about the scientific blogging experiment that I conducted over the past 2.5 years.

    My favourite blog this year was to write about Recovery from acute anxiety and depression.

    https://chrisgfroerer.wordpress.com/2015/05/11/what-is-recovery/

    As a cognitive behavioural therapist of some 33 years, I know the road from anxiety and depression to recovery is never linear. Clients come to see me because they feel overwhelmed, tired of battling mental illness day in day out and are looking for real tools for changing their lives.

    I see clients privately and I run my renowned 16 week self help treatment program, teaching skills on how to recover from these debilitating conditions. Most participants use the skills and they live their way out of anxiety and depression, one day at a time. However, some people are looking for the quick fix, the magic cure! These do not exist. They are sadly, disappointed and often give up hope of finding recovery.

    My blog was intended for those who have struggled to commit to recovery, to encourage them to find the blocks to their practice and consider that there may be hidden reasons for not putting their needs first. There are so many programs, therapists and medications out there promising to cure anxiety and depression, but recovery ultimately happens inside the person’s head and heart – to make a clear commitment and follow practical skills designed to lead them, over time, to recovery.

    Thank you for asking, Mike. From the above proposals, the labyrinths find my interest. I just started blogging this autumn, telling and reflecting some experiences of volunteering with refugees. Some of it is in English, others in German language. Many of the stories and our getting together have been touching to me. As this one about a family reunion of Syrian refugees at the transit camp in Nuremberg:
    https://transitnuremberg.wordpress.com/2015/10/16/syrische-familie-findet-wieder-zusammen-reunion-of-a-syrian-family/

    Although we’ve been billing ourselves as a “collaborative blog” for the past 5+ years, the collaborative bit didn’t really kick in until the past two years when two friends joined us on our boozy blogging adventure.

    My favorite post of 2015 was written by three of us and combines a whisky review with a bit of crime fiction. It’s part pulp novel and part cheesy film noir. We call it “A Hard Boiled Review of Single Cask Nation’s UNDISCLOSED 7 Year Old Islay”. Here’s the link:

    It was stupid fun to write!

    My favorite post, usually IS the last post that I worked upon. I find my creativity and energy focused and condensed and once published, all that effort seems to reverberate for awhile. So my last post was a definite high water mark for me. Not only did I sum up and crystallize the intent and message of the full 4 essays under the heading GRAPPLING WITH THE MONSTERS OF THE AMERICAN PSYCHE, but the 3rd one, which was the final one of 2015 shattered something, my wife of 16 years asked for a divorce. My life turned upside down and I was facing the very inner monsters I wrote about. So I passed through the deepest darkest time of the year, the Winter Solstice with the devastation I was writing about. https://rileybrad.wordpress.com/2015/07/31/grappling-with-the-monsters-of-the-american-psyche-part-3-by-bradford-riley

    Hi. according to the nowadays struggle between eastern & western civilizations, i have choosen this post http://adygasysystemd.wordpress.com/2015/02/13/sikidy-un-art-divinatoire-dactualite-a-madagascar
    It talks about malagasy (from madagascar, the great island in eastern part of indian ocean) culture, and its links with arabian immigrants in 17th century; the post, based on divinatory malagasy process, shows how western science meets traditionnal knowledges, using mathematical & computer tools= a good example of inter-cultural dialogue, which dramatically lacks as we unfortunately can see at this beginning of 3rd millenary ?

    Great question.

    I do have more than one favourite. They were from the heart and created in a short time. This one tears me up every time and motivates me to keep going. I remember as I wrote it, thinking of my happy experiences but also remembering the challenges I overcame before I got to the happiness stage! It also reminds me that all I need is within me now and not to be put off by other people’s doubts and insecurities.

    I always come back to this blog and I’m sure I will reference it again in the future.

    My Fave post for 2015 was about a little camera that has become my daily “Grab it an Go – Do” camera, from quick grab shot of the grand kids to a photo for a post. My posts are quick spur of the moment, impromptu writings, about my various adventures with Digital, Analog and other photo related ideas, they are quickly written sometimes “tongue – in – cheek” and hopefully with lots of humor, at other times just observations, nothing to serious . . . this one titled “Old Tech – Low Tech – New Tech” . . . https://digipaintersblog.wordpress.com/2015/08/24/old-tech-low-tech-new-tech
