Let’s take a look at what people were taking a look at on this here blog in 2008!
Problem is, I kinda don’t have the stats for January and February. Oopsie! Here’s the rest of the year, though:
February’s highlight was my DIRE EMERGENCY. This got some good linkage and was my most hit post for that month.
My look into Grant Morrison’s tameness compared to the Silver Age got some StumbleUpon love, so it was tops in March.
For May, the announcement of Lego Diem was the highlight.
In July I kind of riled up an ENTIRE LEGION of the Empire’s troops in a post on the casual fascism of American society. When the dust finally settled I think most folks saw that whether or not they agreed with my larger point, I wasn’t saying that the dudes who dress up as Stormtroopers ARE fascists. It was my most commented on post ever, and thus the most commented on for the year.
This photo is making a kid smile and that’s all that matters.
I didn’t even write the top post for August! It was an important message on not behaving like a moronic animal at a geek convention. And surprise, there are people out there who still refuse to get it.
The story of my Star Wars figures got the most hits in September. If only my auctions had seen that much action!
I have no explanation for the number of hits on October 22. People Googling “obama october surprise“?
Two things probably account for the fact that the leaf bag contest winner post led for December. First, Nigel sent the link to everyone he knew. Second, my site is the number one Google result for “leaf bag contest”.)
There were 492 posts this year. The biggest categories were Misc (47 posts), Politics (43 posts), and Images and Toys, both with 33 posts in them.
We were a chatty bunch this year! There were 1416 comments posted. The top commenters other than myself were: Blasterhappy (106 comments), David Thiel (83), Lanf (81), CounterProductive (60), pronoblem (54), Otro Dave (48), Ken Lowery (40), Anne (38), and Stewart and Albatross, both with 35. The top comment-grabbing posts (other than the Fascism one above) were:
And lastly, some of the search phrases that brought folks to my site:
robots don’t say i love you
pictures of people being killed
can you only get montana spray on the internet
skull with dice
holmesian double act
wireless mouse plane crash
Obviously we had a lot of fun in 2008! Thanks for reading my blog and thanks for commenting! And a big shout out to the dozen or so folks who get here every month by searching for the word “labia”!
