Top Posts of 2010

Over the past couple of months, bit by bit, I've been going back into "Madam Mayo's" archives, compiling yearly lists of the top original posts in preparation for this blog's 10th anniversary. The plan is, with the yearly lists in hand, to draw some conclusions about both this blog and blogging as a genre, looking back and looking forward. So far I've posted lists of the top posts for 2015,  2014, 2013, 2012, and 2011. Herewith the list of top posts in 2010.

I note that in 201o so many things we take as fixtures in the digital landscape were still disconcertingly new: book trailers, ebooks, social media, and of course, blogging itself. 

This list is relatively brief, for that year I was crazy-busy promoting my novel, The Last Prince of the Mexican Empire and its Spanish translation (and apropos of that, also posting over at my other blog for researchers of 1860s Mexico, Maximilian ~ Carlota). Alas, 2010 was also the year that my dad passed away.
