May 2018 Month-in-Review

May was another crazy month, for the blog, and at home.  no-angel continues to surprise us with new tricks on a weekly basis, although her enjoyment of Ralph Bakshi’s Lord of the Rings seems a rather cruel one.  It was a very busy month on the blog.  I got 6 posts up for my Tolkien 101 series that will run through August and 17 posts overall.  Speculative Fiction fans must like Tolkien, because I had my best month ever by a fair margin.  My super-secret project goes live on Monday (well, one super-secret project), but you will need to follow me on Twitter or Google+ or wait until mid-June if you want to know more.

    Are you getting a lot of search engine hits? I’d assume that newer posts with keywords like “Tolkien” would come up near the top of google searches, etc.
