Celebrating Five Years of SIMPLY ROMANCE!
This Blog is Five Years Old Today!
On January 14, 2013, I posted my first blog, a Welcome to my Website, and here I am, five years later! I’ve learned so much in five years about blogging and things like Search Engine Optimization, and I look forward to learning lots more in the next five years and bringing improvements to this site and its content.
Blogs, Blogs, Blogs
Though I posted sporadically the first two years, for the past three years I’ve posted at least once a week. In April 2016, I even posted my Regency Lexicon daily in the A to Z Challenge. That was a lot of fun.
I honestly love blogging, (though I love writing books more!) and I’m sending a huge thank you to everyone who has read and supported these posts.
Top Five Posts
And just for fun, here’s a countdown of my top five posts!
Here we go:
Talking about grapes and winemaking in Regency England.
The title says it all.
Again, a list of facts. I’m making good use of my smuggling research for my next book, The Counterfeit Lady, which goes to the editor next week.
A subject always of interest for Regency authors.
And Number One
My most popular post–go figure?! But I suppose, starving “peasants” denied guns and access to game by elitists can be such a good area of conflict in a historical story.
Those posts have been reader favorites, and here are some of the ones I had the most fun putting together!
This riff on the Misters Wickham
A Regency Era STEM Post
And a post about those “most attractive bastards” who make such good romance heroes.
If you’ve read this far, thank you again, for your support and interest in my writing! I hope to bring you five more years of entertaining posts.

That last amazing picture of British commandoes in North Africa in World War II was also displayed at the Imperial War Museum in London when we visited there in October.
