Here's A Little Something for Everyone

and my highest earning article of all time!

Hello friends.

I hope you are all faring ok during this time of global crisis. It is so different to talk to people from all over the world—and to have the same conversations and experiences they are having. This truly is a GLOBAL issue.

My state of North Carolina has now issued a mandatory stay-at-home order, an executive order by our governor, Roy Cooper, starting on Monday. My boyfriend has been out of work now for 2 weeks—indirectly due to the Coronavirus outbreak. (It’s a long story I can tell later—but if you could spare a prayer or a well wish for my partner in life—I’d appreciate it. His health and our finances are of grave concern to my heart right now.)


A little something for everyone

Today, I gathered links for backlinking within my articles. I sorted by “reads” to see what my most popular work had been on this first year as a “professional” writer and here are the results.

My most popular articles—according to YOU, my readers.
