Top 10 Blog Posts in 2010 and from 2010 (Because They’re Different)

Leave a comment

I’ve been tweeting my top ten most popular posts in 2010 and it occurred to me that maybe I should put that list here, along with a list of the most popular posts written in 2010, since the lists are actually quite different.  So, here goes:

Top 10 Blog Posts in 2010

  1. Top 8 Most Ridiculous Moments in Science Fiction and Fantasy Film in the 21st Century
  2. Werewolves and Misconceptions About Science Fiction
  3. Top 10 Cats in Science Fiction and Fantasy
  4. Top Ten Fantasy Movies
  5. Misconceptions About Star Wars
  6. Movie Review:  Star Trek (Why It Sucks and Why Abrams Needs to Stop)
  7. Top 10 Most Ridiculous Moments in Science Fiction and Fantasy Film in the 90s
  8. What If Dragons Were Real?
  9. Top 7 Fiercest Dragons
  10. J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek:  An Addendum (to my review)
I suspect that a lot of these views have been from old links or images, since a great deal of the posts above are at least a year old.  Still, it’s interesting to see what is getting the most attention this year.

Top 10 Blog Post from 2010
(Note:  Google Analytics stopped working at around the time that I updated the blog, so the list below is based on post statistics that I have available to me–half from Google Analytics and half from Blogger’s new Stats feature, which doesn’t let me see deep enough to focus on content written in 2010.  Some of my selections are guesses based on data I have and the number of comments received.)

  1. Top 8 Most Ridiculous Moments in Science Fiction and Fantasy Film in the 21st Century
  2. Top 10 Most Ridiculous Moments in Science Fiction and Fantasy Film in the 90s
  3. J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek:  An Addendum (to my review)
  4. Fiction Narratives:  The Forgotten Strand?
  5. A Brief Linking to the Manifesto of No-Consequence
  6. Why Science Fiction is Important to the Third World (Part One)
  7. The Book Habits Meme (Reboot)
  8. Movie Review:  Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Part One)
  9. Haiti and Pat Robertson:  Slavery is A-OK
  10. Self-Publishing Lies and Myths:  Deception and Unethical Practices
The differences between these two lists are pretty obvious.  The former is largely comprised of lists, which seems to prove that such things are traffic producers (which I’ve read is true, but have never done for the purposes of getting traffic, with the exception of #2 in list two).  I don’t know what to make of that.  I only do top # lists because they’re fun, and it’s starting to feel as though I’ve covered most of the topics that are reasonable enough to do.  But maybe new idea will spring up in 2011?  Who knows?
Now the big question is this:  what are your favorite posts of 2010?
