Eight Years of Blogging
Eight years…never would have guessed it. When I did my first post, I don't think I had any idea what I was getting into, let alone that it would become a daily task that would last for eight years. Today's post uses the stats from blogger to display my Top 10 posts, starting with…
The #10 Daveland Post. Sometimes, it's obvious to me why a post gets high readership; this one baffles me. Coming in with more than 1,936 views, you can read about "The Aristocats" and "The Three Caballeros."
Squeaking in at #9 with 1,975 views, the classic holiday treat "A Christmas Story" is covered in this post.
Shirley Temple, Bo Derek, and crazy in the desert. It's no wonder that this post is #8 with a walloping 4,645 views.
The debut of an unseen Steve Martin at Disneyland in 1957? I totally understand why this post got 4,721 views and earned the #7 spot.
The #6 Daveland Post inches up the ladder with 4,912 views and a photo of Elizabeth Taylor at Club 33.
The #5 Daveland Post covers the "High School Musical" phenomenon and has gotten over 7,432 views.
Unable to turn away from the weird, over 9,298 people have looked at The #4 Daveland Post which shows the evolution of the Mickey and Minnie Mouse costumes in the Park.
Could it be the sight of Michael Douglas copping a feel from Kathleen Turner that got The #3 Daveland Post 9,780 views?
Two beloved child stars meet, and people obviously want to see it. With more than 12,528 views, The #2 Daveland Post shows Annette Funicello and Shirley Temple Black at the Oscars.
With a whopping 41,008 views, I am totally baffled as to why The #1 Daveland Post earned the top spot. Getting my car's smog test, I wandered through the University Heights neighborhood and took a few photos. Even more baffling is why this particular post has been spammed to death by idiots trying to sell Michael Kors purses.
Interesting to note that despite grumblings from a few readers who get upset when I veer the topic here from Disney, 4 of the top 10 posts have absolutely nothing to do with the Mouse. Raise your glasses to another 8 (or more) years of diverse offerings here at Daveland; thanks for stopping by!
