|Our year in review, courtesy of wordle.com|
Like most blogs, some posts get insane amounts of views while others fizzle out quickly. Summing up the year, here's what's floated to the top:
1. I sent my kid to school naked - A humorous look at writing mishaps that has absolutely nothing to do with real-live naked people, online casino gambling, or get-rich-quick schemes, despite the best attempts by spammers worldwide.
2. Nominative and accusative. Damn me, Ben Aaronovitch - Grammar mishaps in Aaronovitch's Peter Grant Series. My favorite comment by author Andi-Roo at TheWorldForRealz:
I love this! Other people's bad writing makes me feel superior. Now if I could just get my arse in gear, I'm guaranteed a place in publishing.3. A thousand words is worth not having to draw a picture: A short review of a 14-page user manual for noise-cancelling headphones. (SPOILER ALERT: Put over ears. Plug in.)
4. The Lust Lizard of Melancholy Cover: How an awesome book title can really rope one in. And as a bonus, how to work the phrase "fantastical pastiche" into everyday conversation.
5. The breastfeeder's guide to management: Weird stuff I found while cleaning my bookshelves. Up for grabs still if anyone's interested...
Okay, then. Here's to a happy, healthy, and prosperous new year to all of our readers, past and future.
