To celebrate the 9th of April (no reason, totally random), here are my top nine most popular blog posts to date:
The Writing Process and Book Two Update - January 28, 2013
This was the first time Felicity and I spoke live on the blog. Also, this was when I had 17,000 words of Book Two written and I decided to scrap them. It wouldn't be the last time I did that.
#8 - Ian Engelsman, Budding Rock Star - January 2, 2013
After this post came out, I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to meet Ian in person. Eventually, he stole the show as the special musical guest at the Book One Relaunch Party in April 2013.
#7 - Video Games - August 16, 2013
Okami and The Last Story are still my top two favorites. Please, Nintendo, bring Okamiden (the DS-only Okami sequel) to the Wii U Virtual Console.
#6 - Book Review: The Speed of Dark - August 29, 2012
One of the better books out there with a protagonist on the spectrum, although I still have a quibble with the ending.
#5 - Ghost Peppers - Yes, Very Scary Indeed - September 17, 2012
My stomach continues to have nightmares about this experience to this very day. By the way, Killer Burger discontinued serving the Marine a while ago.
#4 - Happy National Author's Day! - November 1, 2012
One of my shortest blog posts ever, I think its hits-to-words ratio approaches some kind of infinite divide-by-zero type of anomaly.
#3 - Relaunch Party Guest List Vol. 2 - April 12, 2013
Okay, actually, this post has the craziest hits-to-words ratio ever. I think the fact that I featured a bunch of awesome local authors has something to do with its high traffic.
#2 - Rockin' With Ian - February 8, 2013
The recap of my aforementioned meeting and jam session with the incomparable Mr. Engelsman.
And, the most popular blog post to date is...after the jump!
#1 - Secret of the Songshell: Celeb Comps - February 5, 2013
This post is one of my personal favorites, so you all have very good taste. Since this time, Ryan Potter has gone on to be the voice behind lead character Hiro Hamada in the Oscar-winning Big Hero 6, and Chloe Moretz has not been cast as the lead in The Force Awakens, although she's been plenty busy nonetheless.
