Top Chatters for the Month
The person who gets the most comments in a month is not always the person who gets the most page views. For that reason, I instituted the Top Chatter Award. This award is for the bloggers who receive the most comments.
This month’s winners are:
Christmas Romance Day authors
Alina K Field
Who among us doesn’t have a veteran in the family?

and in your communications with Congress.
Top Bloggers of 2017
One author made the list as top blogger due to having the most page views twice. She was also often in the top five or an honorable mention: Vicki Batman. Vicki wins a year of free advertising on Romance Lives Forever, a $120 value.
Other top bloggers during the year (in alpha order by first name) include: Alexa Aston, Anne Kane, Clare Dargin, Faye Hall, Kara James, Karen Michelle Nutt, Kayelle Allen, Kayla Drake, NJ Walters, and Saraya St Clair.
New Server — New Power
RLFblog has attracted so many visitors we crashed the server three times in the past month. On September 20th, we had no visitors on the blog so that we could move to a new, more powerful and roomier server. This should hold us for a bit! It also means I can add even more services. Look for new things in 2018, such as Free Book Friday and other goodies for readers (and authors)!
Not only does RLF post automatically to Triberr with a reach of several million, each post is also featured on the Romance Lives Forever Pinterest board http://www.pinterest.com/kayelleallen/romance-lives-forever-rlfblog/ as well as on Facebook. https://www.facebook.com/RomanceLivesForever/ and Twitter https://www.twitter.com/kayelleallen When you like, follow and share it increases the reach. Thank you for sharing with your readers and friends!
