Happy New Year Readers!


Happy New Year to all our readers, from all the Rebel City Writers! The first posts were published to this blog on the 10th of January 2015 and it’s fair to say we’ve done alright over the past 12 months. We published 58 posts last year and got over 18,000 views, which isn’t too bad for a first venture into blogging and writing for many of us. So to steal an idea from our comrade blogger An Sionnach Fionn, here are the 15 most popular posts we published last year…

1 – The purpose of marriage is procreation; if you are not going to breed give your licence back! Hey No campaign – leave our kids alone 3,371 views

2 – Make them poor enough to want to work – A response to Joan Burton’s “Incentive to work” comments 2,494 views

3 – Allergic to work but too broke for an antihistamine – A response to Michael Noonan’s Mirror attack 2,424 views

Hopefully 2016 will be an action packed year and we’ll have plenty more to write about, and plenty more writers too. Thank you again to all our readers and contributors, and we hope that we can grow as a collective over the coming year.
