Another year has come and gone. The year is past, the decade just flew by, and merrily we go into the new year. With the year over, it is time once again to look back and see what was popular around here. I have been posting a top content post every year since this blog began (2006, 2007, and 2008) and every year I end up being surprised by one or two of the posts on the list (in a good way).
- Women of the Underworld Series: This, by far, was my most popular post of 2009. I had many searches for it and many more people who read it (or at least stuck around long enough to have read it – according to the statistics). Granted not one of the thousands of people who read the post ever managed to leave a comment (or send me an email) telling me that I had the name of the series of books posted incorrectly in the title. No people, it was not intentional – it was a mistake! Either everyone was being very polite (thank you for being thoughtful), or they had the name of the series wrong as well. The series is really called The Women of the Otherworld by Kelley Armstrong (fast becoming one of my favorite authors). I did manage to get the name of the series correct in the post itself – just not in the title. I think that the popularity of the post means that I will be creating a follow-up post to the original sometime this year (especially since the series has grown quite a bit since I first posted it).
- Gummy Banana Slug: Seriously, how many people are putting that into those tiny, little search boxes intentionally? Well, I don’t know (although I do appreciate you doing it). But I do know that lots and lots of those people showed up here as a result of those searches. I’ve said it before and I’m not afraid to say it again: Eeeewwww!!!!!
- Sock Monkey Dress: The dress to wear to those black-tie evenings that you just must look your absolute best! It is a sock – no wait. It is a monkey – no wait. It is a dress? Yep, it really is.
- T-Rex Superbike: By far one of the coolest bikes available! If I ever replace my scooter, this is definitely on my list of replacements. When I bought my first bike it was mostly just to combat the rising costs of gas, but I have found that I ride it now for pleasure and don’t use it for the commute to and from work. Taking the bike out clears the cobwebs out of your head and puts a smile on your face (just make sure to keep your mouth closed to avoid sucking on the bugs).
- Dog Helmets: I think people must be taking their dogs out on their motorcycles more often (or they are dressing them up as bikers for Halloween). They must be doing something because this post was very popular last year. I never have taken my dogs out on the bikes – I’m too afraid of them jumping off the back while out on the road. I have seen one or two dogs riding in a sidecar every now and then but they weren’t wearing a helmet.
- Star Trek: A Movie List: A very nice list (if I do say so myself) of all the Star Trek movies in my order of preference. I wonder if watching them in order of worst to best on my list would make more sense than watching them in their original order?
- Top 10 Lip Balms: Another list on this list is all about lip balms. It was an is a very informative post all about different lip balms. I have a confession to make about that list. I no longer use any of the lip balms mentioned on that list at all. I have completely switched to Burt’s Bees Honey Lip Balm.
- The Price of Beauty: A pretty popular post that I am not sure was really what the people searching were hoping to find.
- 10 Uses for Your Old iPhone: A new iPhone has arrived on scene pretty consistently since the first one was released. Each year the new version is cooler than the previous version. Each year as you drool over the keynote speech you have to decide what to do with your old iPhone. I only listed 10, but I can think of a few more…
- Sexy Female Professions: What can I say about this list? I think it just speaks for itself…
That’s it for the list this year. Thanks for reading my stuff! If you keep coming along to read it, I will keep on writing it (no really that is not a threat).
