The other day I posted a list of all the books I read in 2016 with a short blurb on each. Today I’m putting together a list of everything I wrote during the year. That includes this blog as well as two others and my music columns for the Song Bar and the Guardian. I’ve organized them by where they were posted rather than chronologically. There were some guest posts on my blog this year but they are not included in this listing. You’ll find all listed by topic and annotated in the Index.

All together I wrote 46 posts for The Jolly Libertarian including this one. Three were articles I had written a few years ago and re-published here but the rest were new articles although some incorporated earlier material. I wrote another 48 posts at The Destinations Guru plus an additional 40 photo galleries. And I relaunched my Now and Then blog in May, completely reorganizing it. I wrote ten posts for that blog. And I wrote five music columns for The Guardian and the Song Bar. And finally I wrote my first ever complete Wikipedia entry.  All are linked below.

Wikipedia

This year I wrote my first full length Wikipedia entry. It was completed October 29th and I continued making minor changes and improvements until it was published on December 7th.
Wikipedia Article: Gene Keyes
 
Not counting the three articles for The Jolly Libertarian that were recycled older articles, I wrote 107 articles and put together 40 additional photo galleries. That’s better than two articles a week! Who says retired people have nothing to do!
