Thanks to Web search traffic, some posts get a lot of popularity over time. But that’s not always the case. Sometimes it’s just one big surge. In some cases, views are obscured because someone went to the homepage or a category or tag search, thus not seeing the post by itself. Nonetheless, with the numbers I have, here are the posts that people checked out most this year.
I sang out of this book growing up, so when I found a copy of it at my original home parish, I had to skim through it and bring back some quality memories.
Really? I wrote this pretty much when I started the blog. It’s still true (really, “We Are One Body” is awful), but I’m surprised this gets this much traction.
In July, I bought my first house. But it’s a story that has its roots in 2009, when I was laid off from my job.
This is a post from 2012; I had a flood of people looking for lists of Advent hymns in November. We may have passed Advent by now, but there’s still plenty of great music there to listen to.
I guess there really isn’t much available these days about the song, which was one of the most prominent during the folk era, then poof! disappeared. Because I had a lot of people looking for information on this song and its composer, and I didn’t have a whole lot to offer. And I still don’t. When I have a chance, I will try to track down a copy of Ken Canedo’s “Keep the Fire Burning,” which documents the folk era, and maybe I might be able to find more information.
