At the end of another year of blogging in which I have managed a posting every day I was interested to see which blog posts received the highest number of hits:
1957 – a Sister, Spaghetti, Scouting, Sputnik and Stanley Matthews
4,183 hits. It seems that people have a continuing curiosity and interest in Robert Baden-Powell and the Boy Scout Movement which is what seems to bring visitors to this particular blog entry.
1,900 hits. This is a simple link to my Travel Blog ‘Have Bag, Will Travel’
1955 – Polio, McDonalds and Disneyland
1,900 hits. There is a lot of interest in the restaurant chain McDonalds and I think that is what brings people here.
A Life in a Year – 14th January, Henry Ford invents the Hamburger
1,860 hits. This is another post about the McDonald brothers who started the restaurant chain in San Bernadino in California.
A Life in a Year – 4th June, Naturism and Health and Efficiency Magazine
1,775 hits. It would appear that a lot of people have a healthy interest in taking their clothes off on the beach and trying some natural sun bathing! I removed the pictures of the naked people because that is not the reason that I want people to visit the blog.
1966 – Pickles the Dog and the Football World Cup
1,670 hits. One of my favourites and a nice but rather bizarre story about how Pickles the dog discovered the stolen World Cup Trophy in 1966.
A Life in a Year – 26th May, The European Flag
1,660 hits. I can offer no explanation as to why this post has had so many visits.
1956 – Suez, The Cold War, Airfix and Clean Air
1,520 hits. My story of 1956 seen through World news items. I think web surfers get to this page when reminiscing about Airfix model kits.
A Life in a Year – 7th February, Monopoly and other Board (or Bored) Games
1,370 hits. My recollections about the board (bored) game Monopoly which some enthusiasts did not appreciate!
1967 – Che Guevara, Torrey Canyon and Francis Chichester
1,360 hits. A bit of a mystery to me, maybe the myth of Che Guevara just refuses to go away?
