So here I sit on New Years Eve, and apparently the "grand plan" for going out has run aground. Life lesson #265 for KC: The more people involved in a plan, the more likely it will break apart on the selfishness of others who don't mind agreeing to something they really don't want to do and then bail at the last minute. But rather than feel sorry for myself (it IS only 6:30 PM and I have plenty of rum), I said, "You know, I haven't done the yearly blog stats post."
So let me start out by saying that this blog is the 3,274,233rd biggest website in the nation, and 7, 214, 647th in the world...
...and that I have went back and found the most popular posts and most commented posts of the year! The top two seem to have been HEAVILY upgraded by the Russian and French spam waves of the past year, as they got a LOT of pageviews without actually showing up on my Blogger graphs (in fact, both posts were in troughs in my graph...) But anyway, here's the 2016 list:
#9 (tie)- from May 16th, my post about my birthday and all the nifty things that happened in history on that date, 121 views.
#9 (tie)- from March 9th, this post featured me getting nominated for yet another award, my punishment for which was to answer questions about myself in lyrics from my favorite band, ELO.
If you could change your name, you would change it to:
#8- from October 18th, the world-famous "Bugs Bunny" write-in Presidential candidate post which featured my duel with almost-POTUS Cherunda Fox, 122 views.
#7- One of my most successful audience participation posts ever (without really trying), where I went to YOUR blogs and hit the "next button" at the top to see where it would send me, dated February 22nd... (144 views)

Well, now I want to know where you'd go after you left MY blog.
Yeah, you left Baby in the corner.

I just tried... remember, you asked for it...
It was titled "Word Vomit", and had a Nathaniel Ratliff and the Night Sweats ad on the side...
#6- A February 9th Martin World News that featured kosher marijuana and how much pizza each candidate was ordering got 169 views.
#5- My silly "naming the new elements" post from June 27th that got 176 views and two comments on my funniest comments post last week.
#4- My favorite post- announcing the birth of Isaiah Christopher Martin, from November 2nd, with 177 views.
|Hey! Who the hell are all these people?|
#3- Another cross-blog effort, Debbie the Doglady's "A to Z with little ol' Me", where you had to answer a-to-z questions about yourself. Posted june 14th, it got 207 views.
I- In Love With: Currently the Justad sisters from the band Tangerine. See also Molly Rankin from Alvvays and Victoria LeGrand from Beach House.
J- Jealous of: Occasionally the customers who buy our products, because if they buy our product, that means they have a big old boat and a lake cottage and THAT's what I want and won't ever get.
K- Killed someone: What're you, CSI?
