Top Ten for 2011

All over the Blogosphere people are doing their 2011 post recaps for the year. I've never done one before, so I thought it would be fun to give it a try this year.

My top ten posts are the ten most viewed posts from 2011 that were posted in 2011. I decided to disregard posts prior to 2011 because my sidebar does a nice job of keeping my overall posts ranked and current. That, and I'm just dang tired of looking at those posts. I'm even a little tempted to delete them. But I won't, because they're my top ten and they generate a lot of traffic.

Ho hum. With no further ado, here are my 2011 top ten:

#1, by a landslide, was Menu Planning Redo

I feel like I should wash my mouth out with soap for this one. I finally gave up on the Mac software and made the switch to Photoshop Elements. I've said it before, and I'll say it again, if you have a PC, the Creative Memories StoryBook Creator Plus software is awesome, but if you have a Mac, don't waste your time.

All I had to do here was to say "bacon" and everyone came running. Knocked me right over.

I'm happy to report that the third time's a charm. This round of ID tags is holding up very nicely.

Now, let's just pretend that Google Analytics doesn't exist and I get to pick my own favorite posts for 2011. This is how it would all shake out.

Oopsie, that's all I have. No top ten because I don't even think I posted ten times this year. My bad.

Clearly I'm not doing that SEO thing and clearly Google doesn't think the post titles I'm choosing for my favorites are worthy of being ranked by the SEO thingamajig. I'd promise to do better, but the truth is, I like making obscure post titles.

It's not me, Google, it's you.


  1. Hi Jill - I was one of the gals who knocked you over with the bacon post. Love those things. Anyway, can't wait to see what you have to share in 2012. Happy New Year.

  2. Your #1 post, was the very first post I found of yours, *sniffle*, so nice to reminiscence our first 'meeting'...

    You have cracked me up so many times this year. You have such amazing ideas. You are one of my very favoritests!

    I can't wait to read 2012's posts.

    Happy New Year!

  3. That menu planner thingy is AMAZING -- I may have to *think* about making one... I just don't know if I have the wall space...

    and bacon? I am so there. A great comedian, Jim Gaffigan, said that bacon is so wonderful that even the sound of it frying sounds like applause... I have to agree :)

    Thanks for your comments on my blog... I forgot that you have a Zoe too! :)
