It’s been a big year for all of us at Write Through the Night! Our team grew from just one person (me) to a bustling group of six writers, along with a couple of guest writers over the course of the year. We published so much incredible work, and today I’m going to share all of the most popular posts with you all!

It’s always fascinating to me what posts do well and which don’t, because some of my favorite posts don’t seem to be viewed at all, whereas others that I wrote at the last minute rose to be some of the best viewed posts of all time. Apparently, these are the 30 posts that you all gave the most love.

Post Breakdown by Author

Jocelyn

I wrote so many posts this year, and luckily you all liked some of them. This is definitely the largest output of writing I have ever done in a year, and I’m hopeful that I’ll be able to keep it up in 2023.

Vania

Vania came to Write Through the Night with her Six of Crows series which was initially written as a long essay and was broken down into a few shorter and more specific articles. She continues to share her thoughtful pieces on both books and TV shows.

Maxx

Maxx is the most recent member of the team, and they started producing content extremely quickly. You all loved his posts about books and “What Your Favorite ___ Says About You“, and they never failed to make me laugh with their witty anecdotes and stream of consciousness stories.

Aakanksha

This site would not be half so successful without Aakanksha! She took on a much bigger role in the latter part of the year editing and creating a style guide in addition to her usual writing.

Chinwe

Chinwe has brought so much to the site this year! Out of everyone, she has probably covered the broadest number of topics with the fewest number of posts. From politics to celebrities to TV shows to astrology, Chinwe always has interesting takes and I look forward to reading everything she comes up with next!

Priyanuj

Priyanuj is moving on to bigger and better things and won’t be writing with us regularly next year. We’ll miss him dearly! You still might see his writing around here every once in a while, though, if he feels inspired.
