News, but not the serious kind
Are you back again? Most popular posts for 2010
My above average readers have made this the second most popular Reuters blog for 2010, measured in both visits and page views, which is great news for me.
Of course, it’s better news for the smart guy who writes the number one blog, but still…
My theory is that my audience is so loyal because it’s a lot easier to go back to the same bookmark than it is to search for something better to read, but whatever the reason, I’m very grateful.
As the year draws to a close, here’s your chance to see which items you, the hypnotized readers, liked most.
The only common thread I can find is that three of the most popular items, including numbers one and two, were Top Ten lists, which readers always seem to like.
Keeping that in mind, here are the eight most popular blog items for 2010.
That’s right, I said eight. Sure, I could have done another top ten list, but that would be pandering.
And now, this blog’s number one most popular post for the year…
Please keep coming back, and bring your friends…
