Yesterday I shared the Top 10 viewed posts in 2014, regardless of when the post was published. Today, from the home office in Pella, Iowa, I’d like to share the Top 10 blog posts I published in 2014. Perhaps you missed a few. Enjoy!
As 2014 winds down, I’m taking time this week to look back at my blog stats to see what seemed to generate the most traffic. I’ve been blogging for over eight years, and it’s interesting to see which posts continue to generate interest over the years even though they may be ancient in terms of the world wide web.
I’ll be posting a few different lists this week. Here are the ten most popular posts from my blog in 2014, regardless of when they were published:
- 10 Ways Being a Theatre Major Prepared Me for Success
- Top 5 Things Wrong with “The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug”
- You Heard Right: We’re Moving
- Preparing for a Role: Rehearsal Process
- Preparing for a Role: How Do You Memorize All Those Lines?
- Getting Away from Crazy makers
- Theatre is Ultimate Fitness for Your Brain!
- “There are No Wrong Notes”
- Art Heals (continued)
- The Art and Progression of Sexual Intimacy
W is for “Wendy.”
- Constant companion
- Stage partner
- Life partner
- Favorite photography subject
V is for “Vander Well.” We are slightly strange, but also fun and loving family. Seriously, I know I’ve posted it a million times, but I never get tired of this picture. It so perfectly captures the crew.
S is for Suzanna. Wendy’s youngest sibling came to live with us last summer and has been such a blessing to us. It’s been so awesome to watch her processing life and growing into such a capable (and gorgeous!) young woman. We have been and continue to be blessed to walk along side her on this stretch of her journey.
- General Posts about my life, what I’ve been up to, and etc.
- Chapter-a-Day devotional posts. I’ve blogged through the entire Bible once and have blogged through the entire New Testament twice.
- Theatre posts about my experiences in the art form I love.
Below I’ve listed my top ten posts in each of these themes, ranked by the number of “hits” or “views” for each post. I found it fascinating to see what posts have received the most traffic.
