Top 10 Posts
The top ten most visited posts over the last year have been:
10. What Would You Do if Money Wasn’t an Issue?
9. The Ethics of Being On Time.
8. The Ethics of Eating Animal Products.
6. Why is Violence More Acceptable Than Sex?
5. How to Forgive Without an Apology.

3. Has the Internet Destroyed Our Social Skills?
2. What the Quiet People Are Thinking.
1. 6 Reasons Why I Don’t Wear Makeup.
My personal favourite this year: the You Were Born in the Sea series. I’m still not sure where that story came from (or even what it all means!) but there’s something special about it to me.
I was surprised to see so many of the links from last year’s top 10 list show up on this year as well. I wonder if this trend will continue?
What have been your favourite posts here over the last year? If you have a blog have you noticed certain posts continuing to get a lot of traffic months or years after they were first published?
8 Responses to 2 Years Old
Happy 2 years.
More than the most visited, perhaps the most commented is more interesting. People visit blog posts for lots of reasons. (I just posted on this issue).
For example, what are your top ten Search engine items that bring people to your blog?
I just looked up my top ten search engine items from the past year. I’ve blogged about most of them quite a bit:
10. why is violence more acceptable than sex?
9. is voting worth it
8. elijah mccoy
7. non-theist worldview
6. how to forgive without an apology
5. quiet people
4. stop reading the news
3. how to cure nostalgia
2. I don’t wear makeup
1. on the other hand
Mine were much simpler. Here are the top five with the number of hits:
1. ganesh: 5,238
2. jesus: 1,818
3. comparative embryology: 1,514
4. shiva: 1,328
5. wander above the sea of fog: 1,254
I wrote on the first 4 and the 5th is a pic. But all the others are pics too. Pics will drive up your stats — but they usually don’t stay and comment.
BTW, my all time highs were: santa & dora the explorer — both pics.
That’s really interesting.
Congratulations on the Blogiversary! 🙂 I’ve enjoyed reading your posts over the past couple years.
I love that short story.
