I’ve been perusing the WordPress end of year stats they send you.
It’s disheartening to see my most popular posts in 2013 were from 2012 and prior to that even. No 2013 posts made the cut.
It’s never nice to realise you are no longer relevant despite WP trying to ease my pain by saying it means I have staying power. I admire your good intentions WP but no point sugar-coating it.
My busiest day was Feb 10th and this post, Kids say the darndest things, take a look again, it’s got kids shouting insults.
My most popular post was Camden Town is not Disneyland, no surprise since tourists must be looking for Camden Town and unfortunately stumble upon this mess.
Secondly was Ask Ina, a pisstake of the Barefoot Contessa. The dark side to this is that I still get comments from people asking for cooking advice thinking this is actually Ina Garten’s website so I feel quite bad and offer my own advice on cooking the perfect Mac and Cheese. I do stress to them I am not Ina, I can’t carry off a denim shirt quite like her.
The best information WordPress reminded me of were my comments tally and I would like to give a shout out to not just the Top 3 but also everyone else who regularly comments here, yes you could try harder to crack the top 3 but I won’t hold that against you. You’re just not as full of gas as this lot:
1) Pouring My Art Out: If you’ve been checking other people’s stats then PMAO has been topping everyone’s comments charts. This one just loves to banter, he’s a perfect foil for exchanging gibberish, and his imagination never ceases to floor me, I’m very grateful to have met him here. Many thanks AB!
2) Linda Vernon: In a community of hilarious ladies, Linda is one of the funniest. Her brain, Peanuts, continuously takes us on a strange adventure, her humour is right up my street being weird and wonderful. Thanks for being around Linda (and Peanuts).
3) GingerFightBack: The only UK resident on the list! Most people I follow are across the pond, never found too many Brits on WordPress funnily enough. GFB lets us glimpse into the life of many a character. There’s sausages too. Thanks GFB!
Happy New Year everyone!
