Your Favorite Posts of 2012

I like numbers.  They make me happy.  So I thought I'd examine the number of views that were associated with all of my posts last year.  I figure that's how you all voted for your favorite post.

I know that it's not entirely fair since January posts have had much longer than December posts to acquire views.  But you should know that the lowest views for the year was My Moment in (10% of) the Sun which was in June and only had 38 views, (apparently you guys hate solar eclipses).  So there were plenty of posts after that one that did just fine.  Plus, I waited all the way until March to give the December guys a chance to shine.

Without further ado, here are the top ten most viewed posts of 2012.

1.  Truly Awesome: Face Juggler (2052 views)
Everybody loves iphone apps that make good looking pictures atrocious.

2.  The Arm Folding Evangelist  (1964 views)
Sunbeam stories are always crowd favorites.  Who doesn't want to read about little girls that dance through church and preach about folded arms?

3.  The Time the Wind Blew my Wife's Clothes Off  (1551 views)
This one may have gotten a bump from google searches by people looking for something a little different.  But it's a great story.  I've even gotten permission from my wife to laugh about it.

4.  An open letter to I15 Construction Workers (1026 views)
I have great gladness that the construction has finally ended.

5.  Hawaii in Pictures  (416 views)
Who doesn't love Hawaii?

6.  Why My Coworkers Smell Like Hot Sauce  (388 views)
It's important to shower condiments on your coworkers.  That's how I roll.

7.  Road to Hana Part 2: The Pipiwai Trail and beyond  (360 views)
You should hike the Pipiwai trail.  It was worth the massive blister I got.

8.  Fun Facts About Hawaii  (238 views)
More Hawaii.  I'm noticing a theme.

9.  Bad Guys Eat Garbage  (212 views)
Primary kids always share such insightful things.

10. The Road to Hana  (207 views)
You guys really like to read about Hawaii.

There you have it.  The top ten are primarily about Hawaii, but there's some goodness from Primary Kids, some awkward moments, and just a dash of ranting.  You guys probably don't care about the numbers as much as I do.  But I find them fascinating, and since it's my blog, you got to partake.


  1. This makes me want to do a top viewed list on my blog... cause this is fun.

    1. I'm glad you thought it was fun. I wasn't sure if anyone would find it interesting besides me. So I pretty much compiled it for myself, hoping that at least one other person would enjoy it.

  2. I liked it! I'm glad I could help you entertain the world with good stories.

  3. This was good. I had to go back and read some again because I had forgotten how awesome they were.
