Thought I'd do something a little different for today's post and share some photos. I take inspiration from two awesome bloggers that I follow, Clare at A Suffolk Lane and Linda at Walkin' Writin' Wit & Whimsy. The photos they share always draw me in and I love seeing the world from different locations. As a nature lover, I get such great joy from seeing their photographs.
Data breaches are not a new thing. Software and online companies are rich pickings to hackers and if they can find a way to breach and get that data, they will. Do you know if you're data's been breached?
I've been blogging since 2013 and I feel pretty confident that my blogging knowledge is at a good level. Especially since I like to keep myself updated on new changes, what's working etc. However, the truth is no matter how long you've been doing something, things can still surprise you!

Since we are still in January, I thought I'd take this opportunity to look back over my blog and see which posts people seemed most interest in visiting. I am always working on this blog, planning content, updating old posts, adding to my ever-growing list of topics, listening to my readers requests...so I wanted to see how last year turned out. It was my best year ever for visitors and comments and I'm so thrilled about that. So I decided to have a look at which blog posts people really loved.
Last year, I wrote a post that discussed the merits of picking your Top 5 Tasks/Projects to focus on. We are easily distracted by Shiny Object Syndrome that has us flitting from one thing to another and actually gaining enough focus to truly commit to a project or task can be hard. The premise of the 5 Focus Tasks is that these are the ones you truly commit to and you DO NOT take on any other tasks until these are completed.
Once again, I was invited to take part in an Indie Authors Writing Advent Calendar run by author Katharina Gerlach. The topic for the Flash Fiction was "Dragons". After the Advent Calendar was completed in December, we were able to post our stories online on our own sites. So in my continued effort to push my comfort zone boundary, I am sharing my new Flash Fiction here on my blog. Hope you enjoy!
