All blogs are self-congradulatory in one way or another. They all hinge on the basic idea that someone out there gives a flying fig what you have to say, which is a pretty egotistical prospect, if you think about it. Unless you’re Joss Whedon or MC Hammer, no one cares but you and your Mom. And your Mom’s only reading because she wants to spy on you.
However, WordPress (god bless ’em) makes it real easy to believe that you are, in fact, hot shit; a “new-media mogul” with a virtual audience of cyber-millions. They do this in a couple of ways, but the most noticable is the “Most Wanted…” feature at the side of your blog. This is where they list your top 10 posts in order of popularity.
So, in the interest of
disappearing up my own ass finding out what brings people to this blog in the first place, I’ve decided to revisit my “most popular posts”. Enjoy if you can.
(ed. note: I forgot to mention that GeekUSA recently cracked the 4,000+ hits in a month mark. Again, thanks, Mom!)
