Top 5 (Most Read) Blog Posts: 2016. A Year in Review.

It’s hard to believe another year has almost come to a close. The older I get, the faster the time seems to go and there seems to be no slowing down. I guess that is better than reporting that I spent the year sitting around watching the world go by.

I have enjoyed blogging on a variety of topics and am thrilled and touched to have had so many people, and mostly people I am connected with in some way, read my blogs. When you blog you tend to get caught up in how many followers you have and for me it has been  more about personal connection and have enjoyed hearing how things I have written about struck a cord and made some type of impact.  I didn’t expect my blog would provide me with an added bonus of reconnecting with people from my past and my blog has helped me to do that.

This year Life According to Somebody had just under 6000 views by 4200 visitors from 83 different countries.


Each blog posts seems to connect with different people. For 2017 I hope to improve my blog by categorizing topics and potentially creating a spin off that is more focused on health issues.

A personal thank you for all those who have supported this blog and read, commented and shared articles.

About Shari

I am a two-time cancer survivor and patient advocate. Diagnosed as a young adult, at age 25 with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, I had to quickly face the reality of life’s curveballs. My treatment offered a potential cure while at the same time, underestimated the long term side effects including a secondary cancer (breast cancer) nine years later. Shortly after my breast cancer treatment ended, my youthful, seemingly healthy mother was diagnosed with Stage 4 lung cancer and passed a year later. I have lived the cancer experience as a patient and a family member/ caregiver and understand both sides. Life after treatment is often challenging emotionally and physically and there is a gap in providing needed support. I don’t consider cancer a gift as it is not something I would ever want to give to someone. Rather, I view cancer as an opportunity; one I received at an early point in my life to live intentionally, understanding how things can change at any moment. I live without regrets, fully understanding the gift and fragility of life.
