 Who Read What In 2010

A look back in blogs.

I'll start 2011 with a look back at 2010. I wrote 139 entries in "The Written Ward" in 2010. Some were very serious, some were kind of funny. I need to write them more often and keep them a little shorter.

When you mention the name of a famous person or a famous song or TV tend to get more views. People search those terms and sometimes wind up here. That explains some of what follows.

Because we're 11 News here are the top 11 (in reverse order) most-viewed blog entries at "The Written Ward"  As long as someone keeps reading them I'll keep writing them. Take a look.

 11) This Man vs Food : Food Won -  July 27th - With the competitive eating trend somehow gaining popularity I wrote about a Colorado chow-down challenge I remember but I'd rather forget.

10) Caught With My Pants On- January 6th - This is the follow up to the entry that came in at #2, so if you're reading these, skip this one for now.

9) School Shooting - Hero Teacher - February 23rd - A man opened fire at a Colorado school and a teacher stopped the violence.  This is about how we all hope we'd be able to do something like that if we had to.

4) Paul McCartney- Mac Is Back - July 15th -  More McCartney, this was a quick mention about the show I couldn't wait to see that night, with a look back at a remarkable behind-the-scenes moment from the last time he was here.

3) Do Anchors Wear Pants? January 4th - I wrote this on a whim because I really have been asked that question. It got a lot of attention (See number 10) It was even quoted recently on the website for a famous magazine in Canada!

2) Undercover Boss, A Show With Soul - February 14th. I wrote this after I watched and really liked the first episode of a new show on CBS.  I updated it when I didn't like the second one nearly as much, but episodes after that have been good.

The most viewed entry is all about a song.

1) Pure Imagination - May 12th - I heard the old song on the commercial we've all seen and heard so much now.  It took me back to being a kid.  Lots have people must have been curious about the song, and searched for information, and been linked to this blog.  This got the most views of any entry at "The Written Ward" in 2010.
