Happy Birthday, Blog

June 22, 2011

The Echidna and the Fox is one year old. There have been forty posts since June 2010, mostly reviews of fiction and memoir and reflections on writing. The blog’s busiest day was 51 views on 4th December 2010, when the most popular post was Family Comedy or Orwellian Nightmare? That review of Susan Johnson’s novel Life in Seven Mistakes took issue with both other reviewers and the author’s own view of her work.

Other popular posts were my tribute to Indonesian writer Achdiat Karta Mihardja, who died in July 2010, the Laos travel/crime novel posts, and the question of whether our lives tell a meaningful story, in Are You Episodic or Narrative?

Thank you to those who subscribe to the blog or who have commented on the posts.

I will keep blogging because I like it and it is good practice in writing for an audience. By aiming to write reviews that will interest others, I gain more pleasure and insight from reading. I also enjoy those times when a conversation begins via comments on a post.

If you are new to the blogosphere:

Comments are welcome and easy to make. When you click on the comments button, you will be asked for a name (which will be published, but you can use a pseudonym) and an email address which is not published and which I can’t see.

The easiest way to subscribe to the blog is to request email notifications. Scroll down to ‘Email Subscription’ in the sidebar to the right, enter your email address and click on ‘Sign me up!’ You can unsubscribe at any time.

I’d love to hear your feedback!
