My 10 Most Popular Posts (so far)

real popularity SOMHi friends,

I’ve written over 100 posts in the past 3.5 years. So I thought it’d be a good time today to look back on what I’ve written. I’m going to list from the oldest to the latest, what my most popular posts have been.

Next week, I’ll show you my least popular posts.

If you want to support my work here, become a patron on Patreon!

I can’t tell you why these were more popular than others, because, for example, This Is My Time felt like a personal triumph, but no one barely looked at it.

  1. Woo fucking woo–my first post!
  2. Just Enough Light–my second post!
  3. A trip to woo-woo land–that one time I went to see an angel card reader
  4. I need your help/How can I help you?–This was a month after my contract had ended. I’m pretty sure this still applies almost 2 years later as a freelancer. AND this is my most popular post!
  5. how to be your own mother — Mommy issues!
  6. the astrology of my family — I’ll be updating this today because I got something about my father wrong (appropriate for Father’s Day?)
  7. it’s time to move on, it’s time to get going — a tribute to the late, great Tom Petty
  8. the greatest wound, the greatest healing — existential loneliness sucks.
  9. hell is living with other people — my almost complete history of terrible roommates
  10. Digging Up Old Roots: An Elegy — buh bye, Christianity

If you’ve been with me from the very first post, thanks for being on my writing journey with me. Especially if you’ve been a long-time patron of mine, your material support has meant the world to me.

Wherever you picked up to come along for the ride, I appreciate you. I hope you have a great week and a beautiful Summer Solstice.

Hello, my lovely readers!

This is just a quick note that since I need to cover the costs to write and host this blog, I added ads to this website this morning. Not a big fan of ads, but gotta keep the lights on, keep myself fed, etc.

If you enjoy my blog, then kindly consider showing your appreciation in monetary form! 🤑

Become a patron of mine on Patreon or giving a one-time donation or monthly donation via PayPal.

I appreciate each and every view and like, and all of my followers. But I only have 4 patrons! 😭

So out of the 120 followers I have here, it’d be great if one out of 10 you became a monthly patron. And that could be with just $1/month!

If you sign up for the $10/month tier, you’ll get bonus content you won’t see anywhere else!

Thanks so much for your support of my writing! Patreon or PayPal are just a click away.

Peace to you,

Deborah

Welcome to paradise!

Hello, readers!

I’ve been super busy writing for pay, which is great–but it’s tiring. I have 5 articles I need to write  It’d be great if the rate was higher, then I wouldn’t even be writing this post.

But, alas, I am. So. There are three way you can support me until I find more clients or more stable work.  Also, there are things I want to do for this blog that I don’t have funds to do yet.

  1. Become a patron on Patreon. The tiers are from $1 all the way to $100 for a custom poem from me. The more you give, the more you get from me.
  2. Donate directly via PayPal or Cash.me.  No fees involved!
  3. Donate to my ongoing fundraiser. This does have fees, on my end. But you can learn more about my almost five-month plight.

There is a donate button on the lefthand side or under the menu, depending on if you’re viewing my blog from a desktop computer or a mobile device.

That’s it! Give and share, share and give, and thanks in advance!

Patreon! It’s on!

I usually wouldn’t be launching something a full moon, but necessity is the mother of invention. At least it’s a full moon in Taurus. Taurus is ruled by Venus–love! beauty! money! And it being an earth sign, we’re talking about stability. And I could definitely need some of that right now.

So I’m up on Patreon now. If you want to support this blog, I will have a good blog post once a week, at least. And here’s the link:

I need your help / How can I help you?

The caption of this picture is “help me,” and who can resist a little kitten like this? Unless you hate cats.

Hi folks,

Happy Halloween and Samhain for those who celebrate!

So, I am asking for your financial help while I look for my next job. September 30th was the last day of my last writing gig. During my time down here in Florida (four years and counting), it’s been pretty unstable. I’ve had six addresses and one post office box  in that time. It’s definitely been, and continues to be, a hero’s journey.

The next week with bills is looking a little rough. If you want to donate to my cause of self-preservation, especially if this blog or my tweets have helped you (or entertained you) in any way, you can click here for my cash.me account or here for PayPal.

And, in the future (hopefully this week), I’ll launch my Patreon so you can have the opportunity to support this blog on a more regular. My dream is to put more thoughtful time into this place because through all those unstable times, I’ve learned some thangs! I’ll probably put up a donate button, too.

Finally, let’s talk about how I can serve you. I’ve been a technical writer, science writer, grant writer and editor, an adjunct English professor, and my MFA is in Creative Writing (nonfiction). I’ve been really blessed to have been a working writer, and I look forward to doing that again!

If you have any writing needs–from looking over your resume to cover letter to looking over your web copy–I can help! Another dream of mine is to be self-employed; so maybe working together will be one brick in the foundation of that dream.

Oh! And if you have any writing job leads, remote or in Florida, hit me up on my Contact page.

If you can’t donate or don’t need my writing skills, I could use your good vibes, prayers, juju, whatever goodness you can send my way.

Thank you, dear readers. I’ll be back later this week with more talk about mud…and flowers.

Peace,

s.o.m.
