There's no easy way to get your most widely read posts out of Blogger. Well, actually there is, but only for daily, monthly, or all time - there's no way to say "show me the 10 most popular posts of 2013". And so I can't, even though it's been an interesting year.
This has also been an odd year, and next year is looking to be even more "interesting". I'm now at the point where I'll choose "happy" over "interesting" anytime, but that will likely take a while. And so here's looking forward to 2014, with its good and bad. Google stats tell me I'll probably get a million page views this year - I'm reliably running 80k+ a month for a while.
On the down side, I expect that #1 Son will leave the nest this year. He may not be the only one.
But I'll have a new motorcycle come spring, or there'll be hell to pay when Uncle Jay comes by. And there's a lesson in that - Janus looks both directions, to the past and the future. Looking to the past comes naturally to a student of history (and a sentimental old fool) like me; looking towards the future oft times comes from your friends.
That actually makes my head hurt a bit. And so from all of us to all of you, we wish you a happy, healthy, and prosperous New Year.
