So I went through my 2009 archives and pulled out some of what I call my crowning achievements as a blogger. Those columns ran on Wednesday and Friday if you want a refresher.
One of the reasons I like Google Analytics so much is that is delivers the sometimes unwelcome news that the posts I like aren't best aren't usually the posts that drive traffic to this site. So according to Google Analytics, my top ten posts from 2009 are:
- Paint That Porch Roof Haint Blue
- Here's an Awful Kitchen
- Christopher Peacock's Back
- Don't Do This
- Behold the Power of the Blogosphere
- A Christopher Peacock Follow Up
- Meet the Frigidaire Flair
- Caveat Emptor: Ikea Sells Appliances
- New Ravenna Defines the Term Mosaic
- Of Spiders and Silk
Paint That Porch Roof Haint Blue won by a large margin, and I find that really wild. That post also leads the pack so far as stickiness goes. By stickiness I mean the duration of a visit when someone lands on that piece. Readers who find that post stay and read for an average of three minutes and 31 seconds and that's pretty good. Hear that advertisers? Three-and-a-half minutes!
I am just happy that people find this site useful. And with this post I am done indulging in looking back and I'm now ready to start looking forward. Thanks to one and all and happy new year!
