As the year comes to a close I thought it would be interesting to look back on the posts I’ve written over the year and discover the stories that generated the most comments. It’s a list I found quite surprising and I thought you might like to see the Top 10 Most Commented on posts for 2012. Many of you would appreciate that as a writer of a blog you just never know what will be popular or what will generate large volumes of discussion and if anything, this list only served to confuse me more. But I thought I’d share the list with you and do let me know if you concur with this list or if you are just as surprised or as confused as I am.
Knock Yourself Out – Where Archie comes to church on Easter Sunday clearly hungover, falls asleep and even the emergency evacuation alarm can’t wake him.
Dealing With PR Companies – Where I talk about my experience with one particular PR company and many of you share your experiences.
A Brief Career - Where I share about my brief and regrettable foray into the catering industry.
Stranger Than Fiction- Where I explain how I came to be named, ‘Charlie Louie’.
Happy Anniversary – Hotly Spiced turns 1!
One Hundred and Two Hours – The drama of Arabella learning to drive.
Maeva! – A look at an escape to Tahiti brought on by a drunken bid at a live auction.
Sprung! – That moment when you bump into an ex-boyfriend while dressed in grunge and smiling with lipstick on your teeth.
Chilled to the Bone – Swimming lessons in the freezing cold weather and pool at Waiwhetu Public School.
And the number one most commented on post for 2012 was….
Rainbow Cake – Arabella’s 18th birthday cake.
If I hadn’t have done this little exercise I would never have known. Thank you all so very much for your support and the time you take to write thoughtful, caring, uplifting and encouraging comments – they mean more than you can imagine.
Happy New Year and may in every possible way, 2013 be your best year ever.
