Some Interesting Observations on the Top Posts of 2018
It was interesting to note that half of the articles on this list weren’t written by me, and comprise of guest posts or perspective roundups. I was also extremely surprised to discover that the #1 post of the year was a write up about Antiphospholipid Syndrome, which details both my personal experiences and clinical aspects of it.
It is a rather lengthy article and I had thought that it’d bore most people to tears, but I’m obviously wrong. Perhaps there are much less resources and insight on APS out there, as compared to Lupus and other illnesses I have. This has made me realise that the rarer the disease is, the more important it is to talk about it.
The Types of Posts that People Want to Read Most
Most of these posts either focus on improving people’s quality of life, or bring comfort by showing others that they are not alone in their pain. My own writing tends to lean towards the introspective side, which seems less popular. People want to learn practical ways to cope with pain on a daily basis, how to train their resilience and invite happiness into their lives.
I’m not going to stop writing introspective posts because that’s what I enjoy doing, and is also what helps me cope in my own life, so I’m sure it has its uses. But I’ll also refer to what I just wrote here, when creating practical resources which I tend to find boring sometimes! These resources will benefit many out there, and once created, will turn into an timeless tool to add to somebody’s toolkit.
Sit back, relax and enjoy the top 10 posts of 2018!
