James Higham has tagged us with a meme:
Here’s a mini-meme. Which two  posts have been your most viewed of all time?
Then he notes,
Seven poor souls I’ve tagged:
and then he puts us in there.
Since there are two bloggers posting on this here page, I thought I’d divide it into the Baron’s two most-viewed posts, followed by mine.
This is a fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants guess, since I don’t really know the answer; we don’t keep track. What I can say is how often I see particular posts come up as links in the site meter stats, or the number of emails, comments, etc. So, on that unscientific basis, here goes:
The most-clicked on of the Baron’s posts by far, are:
Personally, though, my favorite of his posts is The Little Engine of Cant.
Unfortunately, I can’t access it now. “New” Blogger is not as far out of Beta as it claims. Maybe by the time you read this post, whatever glitch is kinked up will have smoothed out and you’ll be able to access the archives. If not, then it’s all academic.
Pretending that the #@$%^Blooger archives really work, here are the top two on my hit list:
2. The Slave Owner’s Bookstore. It’s nice to know that dude is safely in federal prison for some of the prime years of his life. And his slave has $64,000.00 of his money, which she took back with her to Indonesia. Not enough for the damage done, but better than nothing. Even more cheering to know it’s really Saudi tribe money. Heh.
My favorite post of those I’ve written is “An Open Letter to Cindy Sheehan.” I still get emails from bereaved parents and it’s been healing for me to know my words were salve for them.
However, that one is in Blooger Limbo, too. Trying to access any of our archives is problematic at the moment. Guess I should ask Blogger for my money back.
That aside, I now have to tag seven new
victims nominees — bloggers who [probably] won’t be annoyed at having to do this. People with a sense of humor. Like, maybe these guys…
And — ta da — definitely neither last nor least,
I hope everyone I tagged notices the links in their technorati searches, or in the site meter links, or that their friends nudge them. I believe the correct protocol is to email everyone you burden with this little task, but I don’t think I have everyone’s address, and even if I do I’m way too ADD to find the them as they are haphazardly stacked in the Baron’s email files. This new laptop has a very limited dropdown list.
If I don’t get threatening emails from my victims, I guess I’ll have to do my flatfoot routine and chase them down.
That is, if Blooger lets me.
Beta? Hell, yes. That horse definitely left the barn too early and unfortunately we are sitting atop this nag.
[Post mercifully ends here. Blooger won’t let you go any further, anyway. I suppose I ought to be grateful I can post at all. Earlier today I wasn’t even permitted to register to put up a comment on my own darn blog. Dum and dummer – that’s Blogger and New Blogger.]
