I started this blog almost a year ago; closing in on 300 posts my mind is blown over which ones rose to the top. The term “blown” is perhaps a tad dramatic – lets say I’m amused and slightly annoyed by my top posts by views. After a year of pondering one thing is certain; there are a lot of Justin Bieber fans, and foot fetishes are definitely out of the closet. A ridiculous number of people had to learn if all Vikings had blue eyes, and how much the tongue of a blue whale weighed. The discovery of a planet made of diamonds, the planetary alignment over Giza, and Ann Coulter making me nuts settled in below that.
“Pondering Stephen Harper” wasn’t about Bieber; I made reference to Bieber innocently enough in the last paragraph. Harper ditched a meeting with provincial premiers to shake hands with the Biebs. After my About/home pages this is my top post. The search terms Stephen Harper (misspelled as Steven 95% of the time) and Justin Bieber led to the bat shit crazy number of hits.
Then “Feet” – search terms like “dirty feet on children” , “curled toes on feet”, “bare feet in bed” – it was a post about how much I hated my feet as a child because they were wide. I wrote about reaching a place where I stopped burying them in the sand; how feet told a story – once you accepted perceived flaws – beauty could be found in unexpected places. Nope. That post sits at the top because multitudes wanted to look at bare feet.
At a loss to explain blue eyed vikings or a blue whale tongue weighing as much as an elephant – 55 Cancrie E; a planet made of diamonds makes a little sense. It’s made of diamonds! “Help – Ann Coulter Exploded my Mind” makes me feel a lot better – at least it’s a post expressing my opinion, and arrived at honestly.
My first post rests comfortably in the middle. In 1804 Thomas Jefferson publicly announced seeing a UFO…
Tomorrow I’ll ponder my favorite posts.
