It's been a wild six months for both my readers and myself. In that time I have written 180 posts and published tens of thousands of words. I've made new friends and, just as importantly, made several new enemies. However, what have I learned in that time? Among other things, I've learned that posts on Brian Jones are hugely popular. My highest-rated post is the July 3, 2012 post on Brian Jones. As of this writing it has had 1991 hits, which is more than twice as many as my 2nd highest-rated post on Josephine Baker, while exactly a month older has only 863 hits. That's also more than 3 times my Number Three most popular post detailing my HIGH-LARRY-US bun fight with the Fox "News" correspondent James Rosen, which has only 619 hits.

The Number Four Post in my All Time Top Ten is a sleeper that crept up on me. It also happens to be about Fox News. I was shocked when the so-called "news" channel (in the guise of Bill "Loofah Lad" O'Reilly) felt the need to attack Randy Newman for his "I'm Dreaming" song. Since being published on September 22, 2012 it's already wracked up 471 hits in just a month, which might make it my fastest growing post in popularity. It will be interesting to see how it does over the long haul.

However, as much as I am interested in looking back, I am just as interested in the current Top Ten Posts of the Week. Here's how that breaks down.
I want to thank all my readers who drop in to read what I have to say. While you're at my blog, please take the time to click on one of the adverts. It will cost you nothing, but it adds a few (and I do mean few) pennies to my account and helps support the time and energy it takes to maintain the Aunty Em Ericann Blog. Thanking you in advance.
