Well, I’m over a month into the year and I’m just now getting around to doing my yearly recap for 2019. I’ve been doing these “Look Back” posts since back in 2010. A down year for my activity here with only 24 which is just terrible. Twice a month on average is just not what I want it to be. In 2108 I made 27 posts and I thought that was bad. Ugh. This is already my fifth post of 2020 so hopefully I’ll hold true to my goals and really pump out some content this year. I’m also still struggling with the idea of doing a podcast… hoping I can get that off the ground this year as well.
It’s always interesting (to me at least) to see what posts make the list and to see if there are posts that prevail through the years.
The Top 10 Posts of 2019
(Based on Number of Views)
#10 – Dolph Ziggler – Kent State University Alumni Profile
If you’re a WWE fan you’ll know the name Dolph Ziggler. What you may not know is that guy (real name Nic Nemeth) went to my wife’s alma mater Kent State University.
#9 – The Naughty Elf on the Shelf
Some elves get rather clever in where they hide. Others get downright naughty. Here’s a collection of some elf pics I’ve collected.
#8 – Running Out of Gas In a Traffic Jam
A post that details just what it sounds like. Let me tell you… there’s nothing scarier than sitting in traffic and looking down to realize you’re on empty.
#7 – Got Snow? Snow Removal Scam In Solon, Macedonia, Twinsburg
For years now I’ve been on a personal crusade to make sure a certain snow plow scammer is put on blast. This is the 2010 version of the story and since this guy continues the scam it continues to get visits.
#6 – The 10 Day Movie Challenge
If I’m being honest I totally forgot I did this. I’m sure you’ve seen these things before floating around Facebook. The 10 day movie challenge: You are to post just an image, no explanation, from 10 movies that had an impact on you. 10 movies, 10 images, 10 nominations. No explanations.
#5 – Official WrestleMania Logos Through The Years
I’m a wrestling geek. And more often than you’d think I find myself looking for an official WrestleMania logo from one year or another. I decided to go digging and find them all and put them in one place so they’d be easily accessible.
#4 – My Commercial Series Char-Broil Grill With Rusty Innards
Up one spot from three years in a row at #5. I love grilling. Here’s the story of a grill that had seen its better days.
#3 – The Missing Elf on the Shelf
Do you have an Elf on the Shelf that comes to visit your kids around the holidays? We do. This entry, up from #4 last year is what happened when we lost him.
#2 – Death In Box – McDonald’s Dinner Box
Dropping one spot from last year’s list. Have you ever wondered the nutritional value of McDonald’s Family Meal? I did the research… get ready to be appalled.
#1 – Official WrestleMania 35 Drinking Game
Since 2005 (?) Pip and I have been getting together every year to watch WrestleMania and resurrect our battle with the fearsome Beeramid. Every year we create a drinking game to accompany that evening’s festivities. It has grown in infamy to where every year I have multiple people ask when it will be posted.
As always, I’ve got lots to say and a lot on my mind so I’m really looking forward to a busy 2020 here on the blog. Stay tuned and thanks for reading!
