News, but not the serious kind
Best of the month: my own Oktoberfest?
It’s time once again for my monthly blog traffic stats, and I see that October was kind of a bittersweet time.
Oh a happier note, though, we welcomed a new friend to the blog. Judging from the clicks on two items, Siri – the sassy personal assistant on the new iPhone 4S – will be a frequent guest here in the future.
I was also pleased to find the “cute-off” I had with my friend, author Bart King, on the list, as well as the item on the proposal to let prison inmates work as firemen.
Finally, your favorite item of the month was very, very fitting for Halloween. Please click on it again, recommend it to friends, and help make the world a creepier place to be.
Here they are, October’s top 10….
And the most popular item of the month was…
