Just want to take a moment here to point out that I have published at least one post on Panorama of the Mountains every day since December 1, 2015. As today is May 31, 2016, that means my posting streak is now at six consecutive months! In my nearly ten years of blogging, I’ve never even approached a consecutive day streak remotely approaching that long, so I want to take a moment to savor it.
In the past six months, I’ve published 306 posts (including this one). Dear lord, whatever did I have to say? I hoped posting more regularly would mean that I’d see an uptick in readers, commenters, and followers – which I have – but this is still a very lonely blog. If you like what you read here, drop me a note or share it with your friends on social media, won’t you?
According to my stats, these are the five posts from those 306 that interested the most readers:
- Scenes From the Wake Up the Earth Parade
- Podcast of the Week – This American Life #579: My Damn Mind
- Podcast of the Week – This American Life #581: Anatomy of Doubt
- Introducing JP A to Z
- Beer Review: Guinness Nitro IPA
Here are ten of my favorite posts from the past six months which I think are worth reading, or re-reading, commenting, and sharing:
- Bands Everyone Loves (Except Me)
- Book Review: The New Jim Crow by Michelle Alexander
- BPS Student Walkout
- The Designated Hitter in Major League Baseball: A Solution
- 5 Reasons Why Sanders Campaigning to the Convention is Good for the Democrats
- Movie Review: The Big Short
- Performance Review: Christmas at Pirates Voyage
- Photopost: Harris Hill Ski Jump
- 38 Things About Me and Star Wars
- Walk-In and Rally for Boston Public Schools
And then there are all 27 of my posts about Jamaica Plain for the Blogging A to Z Challenge!
Questions for my fellow bloggers: How often do you publish blog posts? What ways have you found effective to attract more readers, and better yet, to make connections with fellow bloggers? Have you have written anything you love and find it ignored? I’d love to hear other bloggers’ experiences!
