The best way to sum things up for the 2010 year is to look at the posts that generated the most attention during 2010. It’s not that hard with the stats section of WordPress, and it’s actually quite surprising.
- THE absolute number one post of the year: The Godfather. This baby has been a cash cow when it comes to the number of hits my blog has generated over the past year. No post has received more attention than this one, and has on it’s own generated 2,851 hits and an average of 27 hits a day. The post went unnoticed until October 13th and then for some reason, it took off. This page was only surpassed by my homepage, which had 6,781 hits. That should be expected.
- For those of you who know Neil over at Eternity Matters (yes, the name of my blog is a play off the name of his blog), it should come as no surprise to you that the number two post was: Hillbuzz, Ann Coulter, and Neil’s Persistent Use of Their Site. This post has the unusual trappings of Gay men, who like Ann Coulter, and Neil’s use of the the Hillbuzz, a site written by Gay men who love Hillary Clinton but are conservative politically. These Gay men have been reading Ann Coulter for so long, that they are no longer liberal in their political views. They are now conservative in their views. They have seen the conservative light and realize that the Democratic party has thrown them, and all other people groups that Liberals love to put people into, under the bus.
- We Cry Abba/Father, NOT Daddy! This falls in at number three with 212 hits. I really like this one because it blows out another misconception that the touchy-feely crowd love: the idea that “Abba” means “Daddy.” These people are usually driven in their beliefs by feelings, and not truth. This is always dangerous when it comes to our beliefs. Just look at the Islmofascists. He is driven by feelings just as much as the squishy evangelical, only his feelings lead him to kill, where as the squish evangelical is led to emote… Yuk! Please, keep your emoting to yourself. Let truth guide us in our beliefs, not our feelings.
- Local politics earned the number four spot with my post directed at the Republican candidates running for the congressional seat here in western Tennessee entitled: Ron/Robert Kirkland, George Flinn & Stephen Fincher Need to Repent. This was because the race was so dirty, yet all four were saying we should vote for them because of their Christian values. To Stephen Fincher’s credit, he did clean up his act, especially in the general election against Roy Herron. No matter what muck Herron, another supposed Christian, thew at Fincher, Fincher kept it clean an on the issues. We are really grateful that Stephen Fincher is now our congressman.
- Krauthammer Blames Environmentalist for Oil Spill, Palin Blames Obama made the list at number 5 with 192 hits. Krauthammer’s point is that because of all the environmental restrictions placed on oil companies, they are forced into deeper waters in order to drill, making the drilling more dangerous and prone to disaster. If they would remove restrictions, we wouldn’t need to go off shore in the first place. There are plenty of places to drill for oil in shallow lands that would keep the process a lot safer. But alas, the unintended consequences of liberals…
- The About page of the blog comes in at number six with 180 hits. That’s good. People are interested in finding out who I am and why I write the way I do.
- Another local political story comes in the Top 10, with Ron Kirkland Is Pro Choice receiving 132 hits. This was popular during the primary, but now that he has gone back to just being a doctor, I doubt many will read this at all.
- Timothy Hammons Accidentally Shot and Killed had to make the Top 10. That story was just too weird for it to go unnoticed. It sits in the eighth position with 120 hits.
- Number 9 is another political story, but on the national level. NAACP Claims Tea Parties are Racist and Become Irrelevant In the Process is number 9. This story shows the leftist nature of the NAACP, meaning, that they are only seek equal treatment of blacks if those blacks are liberal. This was similar to the National Organization of Women saying they are for the rights of women, but looked the other way during the Bill Clinton/Lewinski controversy. They are really only interested in the rights of liberal women, not all women.
- Finally, rounding out the Top 10 list is a sports story and a Top 10 list story: Top 10 College Football Teams I Hate. Fortunately the number one team I hate this year is not playing in a bowl game, the Evil orange empire — Austin, t.u. longhorns are resting because of their dismal season. This is excellent. As you will recall, the reason that the t-sips didn’t make it to a bowl game was that they were defeated by my beloved Aggies 24-17 on Thanksgiving day… giving them a 5-7 record and keeping them ineligible for a bowl. You can read about it here.
Other interesting aspects of my blog: Since transferring my blog to WordPress back in April, I have had just shy of 18,000 hits. My busiest day was October 16th when I had 225 hits in a single day. I hope as the New Year progresses, I will still write enough interesting stuff for you to read.
Happy New Year from me and the entire Staff here at Timothy Matters (I don’t really have a staff.)
