well, another year of blogging is in the books…er, on the internet.
in my most read of 2011 post last year at this time, i wrote that i thought i finally hit a stride in 2011. that stride slowed considerably this year (i wrote just over 50 posts this year, which is less than half of last year’s total), but in some ways, i think the quality increased. less filler this year. i only blogged about the stuff i really cared about. often, quite frankly, i didn’t even blog about some of the stuff i cared about. some of that was simply a product of personal burnout and time limitatons, but just as much was about making choices related to personal constraint.
year number 3 of blogging is about to come to an end. it’s been an up and down year. there were times when i thought i finally hit my stride and there were other times i was ready to shut down the site and pretend it all never happened. but 107 posts later (in 2011), i’m still plugging away.
each year, i like to take a look back—more out of curiousity than anything—and see which posts were most read. it never fails that that list is comprised both of posts i could’ve predicted (news-worthy or “controversial” posts) and things i would’ve never guessed.

in the wee hours of the morning a couple nights ago (in december 2010), i finally finished it.
and ladies and gentlemen, here’s what i came up with.
greetings. welcome to the blog. maybe you’re here because you saw me in a little rock family story about the top local bloggers. i’m the large, hairy woman in the middle. you know, the one who looks like the offspring of a lumberjack and a grizzly bear. yeah, that’s me. the lone dude. I was glad to be asked to [...]
more than once (to deal in understatement), i’ve been called an apple fanboy. there’s a certain contingency of the unconvinced (the ignorant?) that assume if you like apple’s products, you must be blindly being led like a brainless sheep. but, of course, there’s another contingency. that is, naturally, the contingency of the convinced: the people who have seen, time and [...]
in a post reviewing 2008, i crunched a few numbers, revealing that i blogged just over 1 time per day (1.004 times to be precise). for some bloggers, 1 post is nothing. to the average blogger, that’s relatively frequently (in terms of the type of blogging i do). i love to blog and enjoyed the time/ability to frequently post my [...]
