Denny Sinnoh's "Akihabara Starlight"

reserved seat for summer

Oddly, a lot of people wanted to share this photo of Mayu Watanabe’s butt. To quote Bart Simpson: “Who would want to look at a girl’s butt anyway? That’s where cooties COME FROM!”

It is that time of year again! Time to compile useless “Top Ten Lists” for events of the past year. Although I created my WordPress account in November of 2013, I was not active until April 2014.  So, I’ve had a good year of “blogging”.  I’ve also had a good year of reading other bloggers posts.  It has led me to the following conclusion: There are many more people out there who are really a lot better at this than I am. I had hoped that creating a blog would help me “write more gooder.”  … but I digress as usual.

This top-ten list will be for my posts which have had the greatest number of social network “shares”.  At the end of my posts I have the share buttons, so my readers (and those that want to beat me up) can forward these to social media like Twitter or Facebook.

Personally, I would not get caught dead on Facebook.  I hate it. I had an account years ago, but I was banned for making jokes about Zooey Deschannel.  I do not miss Facebook. Don’t mind me though, if you use it, good for you.

Also, I have no idea why on Earth people use “Twitter” so much.  I am of the opinion that NO ONE HAS EVER, EVER SAID ANYTHING INTERESTING ON TWITTER. If you like it, good for you, tweet away. I too had a Twitter account albeit briefly.  That is some pretty dull and mindless stuff on there which I do not want to know.  I once subscribed to a Blue Jay, but all of its tweets were about birdseed. Pretty dull stuff, so I much prefer reading the blogs from my coterie of friends here on WP.

Turns out, this bird was a lot more shallow than I thought.

Turns out, this bird was a lot more shallow than I thought.

So … this list from my STATS page, is the “Top Ten Most Shared on Social Media”.  I cannot say that it is my “best” at all — that will be a latter post!  If you missed any, now is your chance!

1. Who’s That Pokémon? AKB48 Labrador dreams, and some clarifications from Professor Neil deGrasse Tyson — linked here.

2. I (HEART) you Mayuyu ! – linked here.

3. There are not a lot of songs about volcanoes! – linked here.

4. “She has a smooth face, because she thinks smooth thoughts.” – linked here.

5. Is Hanako Oku gay? – linked here.

6. Pokémon Nicknames: Girafarig – linked here.

7. Hanako Oku and the Books Never Written – linked here.

8. Finally, someone on Jpopsuki posted “Sakura no Ki ni Narou” with POLISH SUBTITLES!!! – linked here.

9. What I look like when I watch AKB48 music videos – linked here.

10. Hanako Oku “Tegami” Music Video — linked here.

The list above is NOT what I feel is my best work, in fact, I am a little embarrassed by some now. You all know how blogging can be. Sometime you put your heart and soul into a particular post, but never get any reaction or any discussion. Sometimes when I am composing a humor post, I am sitting there cracking up, thinking – people are going to laugh their pants off when they see this.  Then I hear crickets. Sometimes there is a song that has touched my heart, and I just have to share it.

Other times when I do not put a lot of time or thought into a post, and maybe just post a photo – and then that will get hundreds of views and shares. Oddly, my Hanako Oku posts get very few views, but they are shared a lot.  There were a lot of Oku shares that did not make this top-ten list, but she must be my most frequently shared topic. My “Pokemon Nickname” posts get hundreds of views, but almost never any comments, likes or shares.

Weird.

  2. Don’t sell your self short. Your blogs are fast paced, your site is colorful and attractive and your material and posts give you a certain distinctiveness which helps you stand out from many other blogs. Great job for your first year. Now for your top ten lists. I think I should do the same but I have to talk to God First.

  3. Oh, I guess I forgot to hit “post” when I left a comment. Whoops…

    You’ll learn if you haven’t already that you should come to expect this phenomenon. Sometimes, a post that you think isn’t really that good ends up being viewed a lot, and what you think will get a lot of views won’t be so popular.
