Biannual survey of what you are reading on my blog

It took 2 1/2 years for one of my posts to depose Cheez Doodles from its Number One position as my most-read post in the prior 12 months. Of course, the only way it happened was a major boost in readership propelled by drummer Phil Collins, who shared a link to Two Roads to the Alamo* and the Conservation Society Book Awards on his facebook page. People from all over the world clicked on his link, generally disappointed to find out it was mainly about me.

I am saddened the popularity of two other posts was intensified by the deaths of two individuals I greatly admired, my father-in-law and Mary Denman.

As in the past, readership fails to establish any firm direction for my online meanderings. With no definitive cues from you, I will keep on blogging about whatever strikes me.
