One thing that has enthralled me over the course of the last year is watching traffic to this blog. While this year has seen a dramatic increase in visitors to the blog, it has been very interesting seeing which posts draw in the most visitors.
I wrote a review of the movie "The Last Supper", and that post is quite popular. It is in the top 5 posts that gets hits from search engines. The movie isn't really about the Biblical last supper. It is about a group of fanatic liberals that kill extreme conservatives, at dinner. Thus their last supper.
Here is the post: Movie Review: The Last Supper
Another popular post on this blog is actually a collection of posts. With titles like "Keith Olbermann Is An Idiot", these posts tend to generate hits because that (idiot with the name of a person) tends to be a common search engine entry. Here are those posts:
Keith Olbermann Is An Idiot
Bono Is An Idiot
Algore Not Just An Idiot, But A Liar Too
Barbara Boxer Is An Idiot
Matt Damon Is An Idiot
Will Ferrell Is An Idiot
Ode To Craig T. Nelson
Further Proof That Arlen Specter Is An Idiot
Note: The Craig T. Nelson post is included, even though it is praising Nelson. Apparently a lot of people type Craig T. Nelson Idiot into search engines, and my post comes up.
Another popular post is my book review of C.S. Lewis' The Pilgrim's Regress. Here is the post:

Along those lines, my posts about misquoted or misinterpreted/misused scriptures generate a lot of hits. Here they are:
Blessed Are The Peacemakers
Often Misquoted/Misused Bible Verses: I Corinthians 13:13
This one on the farce that is global warming also gets a lot of hits:
Warming, Sun Spots, Cooling, And Lack Of Sun Spots, OH MY!!
All of those are relatively popular past posts, but no post has generated as many hits as this last post. Ironically, this post isn't political in nature. Nor is it religious. But this post generates multiple hits each day. And though the book has been out for a while now, it continues to be a very popular search. It is my review of Andre Agassi's autobiography Open. You can find the post here:

It is heartening to know that things you write are being read by others. This is what causes me to continue to write on this blog. Thanks to all of my regular readers, and the one time visitors alike. I hope to continue to do what I do here on a regular basis.
