It’s fun to look over the dashboard and watch my stats improve over time. And I have noticed posts that I wrote years ago that are STILL getting a lot of attention. Here is a list and evaluation about my TOP TEN BLOG POSTS over the entire five years I’ve been blogging. It’s a testimony to show that tagging and headlining your posts with popular interests can get some good traffic on your blog!
Some of these are mysteries, though, as to how they made top ten!
# 1 TOP POST – Farewell to Opus and Bill – My Personal Heroes!
When I was an Ornament Designer, my biggest thrill was getting to communicate with Berkeley Breathed (in writing, anyway) as the unofficial Opus ornament designer. Most awesome was when he created a special sketch just for me! In this post I show some of my fan art of Opus and Bill 🙂
# 2 TOP POST – Creative Dreams!
I’m surprised that this rose to the top of the charts. It was just a casual musing, and somehow got a lot of hits!
#3 TOP POST – Finding Faith in Finding Nemo
One of my very favorite blog posts I’ve ever written!
#4 TOP POST – Blogtoberfest, The Hobbit, and an Airplane Napkin
Evidence that including a popular subject in your title will cause some accidental traffic on your blog!
#5 TOP POST – Doggie Caricatures at the Cleveland Crown Classic
I guess a lot of people Google “doggie caricatures!” 🙂
#6 TOP POST – Brian Froud’s Dark Crystal
This one was also interesting to see on the top 10 list. It’s a very brief musing, again, very casual. Just felt like posting it one day.
#7 TOP POST – Signs – No Such Thing as Coincidence
Was thrilled to see this rise to the top 10 list! I had fun writing this article. A concept I had to share.
#8 TOP POST – Holy Water Painting – Luke 23:34
Holy Water Painting, Batman!!! (sorry, I just had to)
#8 TOP POST – Authentic Holy Water Paintings
Was thrilled to see my Holy Watercolor Painting posts rise to the top ten list. This nudged me to get these on Etsy!! Here’s hoping the subject gets good traffic there as well! We’ll see!
#9 TOP POST – Never, Never, Never, Never Give Up!
I’m pleased as punch that this has had so many visits! It’s a mystery to me why, unless people Google Churchill and this quote a lot.
#10 TOP POST – Authentic Holy Water Paintings
Yep – a big kick in the pants for me to get my Holy Water Paintings up on Etsy!
