The end of the year is always a good time to look back over the past 365 calendar days of your life in general, but it is even better for a lowly blogger, because it gives you fairly quick and easy post. So, with that, my top most read posts in 2018:
- Book Review: Sapiens
- Biblical Studies Carnival 150
- Book Review: The Imperfect Disciple
- Book Review: Disciplines of a Godly Man
- Book Review: We’re Pregnant
- Book Review: Believe Me
- Book Review: Practicing the King’s Economy
- Book Review: Darkness is My Only Companion
- Book Review: Spiritual Disciplines for a Godly Life
- Book Review: Four Views on Hell
I guess I shouldn’t be surprised to see Sapiens once again leading the pack (despite being published over two years ago), as it is led last year and is my all time viewed post since I discovered that WordPress gives me stats. As I’ve said since then, I’ll write a follow up soon.
My second and final Biblical Studies Carnival was the only non book review post in the top 10 (one of only three in my top 25, my post on Trump and the Supreme Court was 17th this year, and the picture from my 10th Anniversary was 21st).
Only four of the book review posts were actually written this year – We’re Pregnant, Believe Me, Practicing the King’s Economy, and Darkness is my Only Companion – inexplicably all coming in a row. So, that’s half of my top read being actually written in the year, I have no idea if that is common or not, but it sounds about right.
The next five most popular actually written this year included the above two non book review posts and three book reviews – Fall of Hyperion, Astrophysics for People in a Hurry, and On Pills and Needles.
By all reasonable logic, if I want this blog to grow (which I do), I should do more book reviews, however, as I’ll discuss in a few weeks with my reading goals, I will have less book review coming this year and plan to write on a few more random topics. One of my writings on Thessalonians came in at 34, while my Money in Marriage ranked 37. I’ll have more on this in a later post, but I plan to do more writing and less reading in 2019.
So, that is it for 2018. I appreciate everyone who has read or commented on my posts. Thanks for playing along, I’ll try to do better next year.
