Biannual survey of what you are reading on my blog

If blogging truly is my therapy, it’s amazing I have not been hospitalized this past year. My posts are few and far apart.

Yet some of my recent posts have crept up into the top dozen for 2012. Other favorites refuse to budge from the list, particularly Charles Elmer Doolin’s invention of Cheez Doodles turned into art. The number in parentheses represents the rankings from six months ago.

  1. Cheez Doodles as Art (1), posted on January 8, 2011
  2. Breaking news from the Alamo: The horse is already out of the barn, posted on August 18, 2012
  3. “Nuit of the Living Dead” (3), posted on October 30, 2010

    • Of course, https://postcardsfromsanantonio.wordpress.com/2010/07/01/alamoment-how-the-daughters-felt-on-receiving-audit-request/ was only a good post because of the incredibly useful word invented by “The Compoundium:”

      Alamoment: “The instant when you realize that you are about to be completely and monumentally screwed.”

      “The Compoundium” described that special Alamoment feeling:

      “A bright, crisp morning greeted James Whitesides (not to be confused with the Irish poet) as he rose from his post at the mission near San Antonio de Bexar. Texas had been good to him; the land was cheap and the humidity made his hair very manageable. The war with Santa Anna hadn’t even wrinkled his disposition. He took a deep breath and open his sleep-filmed eyes.

      And then he looked to the south….”

      And, Sarah, actually you voted along with other blog readers. The number of views per post are recorded and tabulated without bias by wordpress.
