This year is galloping towards it’s conclusion at the same rate it’s been running all year – frantically! I’m deep into my final preparations to decamp back to the UK for Christmas – everyone needs to be at home with their families at Christmas and, Egypt just doesn’t ever feel Christmasy (spell checker doesn’t like that word – quite right shockingly colloquial 😉 ).
Anyway I’ll be gliding in the clouds somewhere between Egypt and England when this post goes out so I’ve drawn the results from 6 days rather than 7. As always the range and quality of articles are exceptional and well worth a read.
I’ve had a few people ask what makes these the most popular writing articles. It’s super simple – just a case of counting the responses that I get to the articles I post on my social media feeds (Twitter & Google+) . The more likes, mentions, clicks or +1’s a post gets the higher it goes up the list. So you can rest assured that the articles are truly hand-picked by the actions of more than 6,000 of your writing peers.
So, as always, kick back, grab a coffee and read the creme de la creme of articles from this week’s crop. Enjoy….
