Oddly Enough Blog

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.

Two of my 10 most popular items were farewells, one to Sarah Palin who isn’t running, and one to Muammar Gaddafi, who isn’t doing anything.

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.
