Looking Back to April, May, June, 2012

Looking Back to April, May, June, 2012 
by Susan Stephenson,

Towards the end of each month in 2012, I revisited popular posts from 2011. Not only did that mean new readers of the blog might find something useful otherwise buried in the archives, but it also reminded me of content I could refer to when I wrote new articles.

In 2013, I aim to do something similar. Four times this year, I'll look back to articles I've published at The Book Chook in 2012. At the end of March, I wrote Looking Back to January, February, March 2012. Today I'm re-visiting popular posts from April, May, and June of 2012. Don't forget you can use the right sidebar to find earlier posts, too. Click Creating, Learning, Reviews, Reading, Writing and Celebrating to explore those themes, or try the Blog Archive to browse by months.
