Most popular posts

14 September 2012

“I’m interested to know– which of your posts has gotten the most traffic, and do you have any idea why?” Matushka Donna Farley asked on the Orthobloggers page on Facebook.

My immediate response was to say that mine was one I wrote just last week, on boycotting Woolworths. It appeared that Woolworths was threatening to fire staff who did not sign new contracts that would require them to work at any hour of the day or night 24/7/365. We have had mission congregations where most of the people are unemployed. We pray for them to find jobs, and then that’s the last we see of them because they are required to work on Sundays. But the cause I advocated was not popular — it was just that a few days later some white racists called for a boycott of Woolworths for a different reason, so the popularity of my post was rather coincidental. The previous most popular post was in 2008, on Will the real satanists please stand up.

But then I realised I was counting wrong — both those posts were the ones that caused most visitors to come to my blog on a single day. But the ones that actually get the most visitors (I was going to say the most readers, but then realised that people might come to the page, see it wasn’t what they were looking for, and go away after reading a couple of lines) are the following, which have all had over 1000 visitors, though I wonder how many people actually read them.
