Cherry blossoms against a blue sky

Hello loyal readers,

This blog has been in existence going on five years, and readership has grown over that time. I’m very grateful for each and every one of you who have signed up to read my blog. 

I’ve been promoting my Patreon here since November 2016. I’ve held steady at four patrons, to which I am exceptionally grateful.

I’ve wanted to have more Patreon readers, but I realize there isn’t that much difference between blogging here and blogging there. 

So it’s time for a change.

Starting now, I will only be posting my work here once a month. The rest will be for my Patreon subscribers only. 

Since I already posted a blog post for this month, this means it’s so long until April…unless you want to sign up to be a patron today. Four tiers range from $2 to $15 a month, all with more writing from me, including a bonus post and a chance to chat with me about writing.

I’ve also been going through some subtle but important changes in my life that I don’t feel is fit for public consumption anymore. So let’s get better acquainted at Patreon!

If you decide that you want to stay here for the monthly blog post, I appreciate that you continue to read my writing! But I really hope you consider and reconsider monetarily supporting my writing.

Thanks again to all of you for reading my writing. As spring approaches in a couple of days, I feel like it’s time to blossom in a way that’s more supportive of me and where I’m at in my life. 

I look forward to you joining me at Patreon today.

Goodbye for now,

Deborah

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.

Share in the comments what your favorite post is from the sun opposite moon blog!
