My son and I just read through all of the stories in the My Son category. My old stories are so much better than my latest ones.
From there I clicked on the Top Posts button I have backstage here, to see what posts have been read the most.
The numbers surprised me.
Of my 313 posts, The Comma Argument is in first place. This is not even close to being my best post.
The recent A New Expression is tied for second with The Refrigerator Story. I understand why the Fridge made it so high. I wouldn’t be surprised to find other people telling the story on their own blogs.
Breaking up is one click behind those, but I accuse Miss Julia of pushing that number up singlehandedly. J’accuse, mon petite fromage.
Some of my stories have high points because of hot words. For instance, My Mother-in-Law’s Story gets hit constantly. There has not been a day since I posted it that someone hasn’t Googled the words ‘naughty mother-in-law.’
Mike Tried to Get Me in a Catfight enjoyed the same fame, because people worldwide are hungry to read anything with the word ‘catfight.’
And most of the rest of the content from the Best of SO’M category sits below that.
There are posts I wish no one would read, because they’re just me complaining, like The Home Showing Disaster, The Favor Story, The Horrible Person and I was Dismissed from the PTA. These have more clicks than they should.
I can’t figure you guys out.
