This Blog’s Most Popular Posts of 2015

The folks at Word Press sent me an e-mail with a link to an annual report about this blog.

It seems like everyone and his grandma who blogs is making a post like this one, so I figured, why not.

Here are a few of the things that the review says about this blog:

So there you have it, the top 5 most read or whatever posts of 2015.

I have been thinking about changing the name of the blog to something else.

More information from my year in review page:

  • How did they [your readers] find you?

The top referring sites in 2015 were:

  1. twitter.com
  2. reddit.com

    Most visitors came from The United States. Canada & United Kingdom were not far behind.

    1. Thank you for sharing. I’m not sure if I’m brave enough to click and look!

      I would assume that anyone sharing my posts on other sites probably hates me or my view points.

      I might some day get up the courage to click and look. I’m probably not too popular with most Reddit users, I’d imagine. But thank you for letting me know about that resource.

      1. There are some positive comments about your posts there, but there are a lot of negative ones as well. Overall, I’d say they tend to be more negative than positive.

        So far, your posts have mostly been shared to the subReddits /r/Christianity, /r/CatholicDating, and /r/TrueChristian, so the people commenting aren’t necessarily your “average Redditors”. It’s mostly a Christian audience.

        I’d recommend reading the particular page of Reddit comments about one of your articles that I have linked to below. Most of the comments on this page are positive about the opinions you expressed in the article, and there is some interesting discussion on the page.

        1. If I can ever work up my courage, I’ll click and take a look. 🙂

          From what I know of Reddit, there are cultures of things like MRA (men’s rights) guys who detest women, and there are militant atheist groups. I would imagine such groups are not happy with some of my posts about certain things.

          Like I explain on my “About” page, though, in real life and some spots on the internet, I have (or have had in the past) friends from all backgrounds – from atheists to New Agers, Catholics, liberals, pro-homosexual marriage advocates, pro-choicers, pro-lifers, evangelical Protestants, Republicans… and they all know I don’t share their views on some things, but we get along anyhow.

          I’m always mystified by people who vilify or hate someone due to them holding a differing religious or political opinion.

          There are very few opinions I think I’d hate someone for merely holding – say something like people who want to legalize adult-child sex (pedophilia), and so on. It has to be something pretty deviant and severe like that.

          I did hover over the link you gave me there (I promise I will get around to clicking and reading some day), and I see it’s to the one post I did about how Christians will beat you up if you follow their dating advice and the advice fails to work.

          That one just drives me nuts. Christians (married ones) set the singles up to fail with their dopey advice, and when singles fail to land dates or get married, they blame the singles (not the shoddy advice) for it. Drives me nuts!

          1. “From what I know of Reddit, there are cultures of things like MRA (men’s rights) guys who detest women, and there are militant atheist groups. I would imagine such groups are not happy with some of my posts about certain things.”

            Reddit is basically one big Internet forum/discussion board with thousands of smaller communities based around different interests, each of which has one or more types of people associated with it. You can find subReddits for everyone from pick-up artists to recovering addicts, and Trekkies to DIY home renovators. The MRA types and militant Atheists are but two of many types of people to be found on Reddit (although they are very prevalent in certain subReddits).

            The subReddits your posts have been shared to are all Christian subReddits, with mostly Christian readers and commenters. I didn’t spot any overt misogyny and barely any harsh atheistic comments (maybe a couple, but not a significant amount) when looking through the comments about your articles. The majority of people commenting (with both positive and negative points of view) were commenting from some form or another of a Christian viewpoint.
