“Most” Posts of 2013 {a link-up}

Is this your first time here? Welcome! If you enjoy this link-up, you might want to take a look at posted: a new link-up for a new year. All through 2014, we’ll be linking up posts from our blog archives that fit into fun, fresh categories. It will be a great way to find new blogs to read, as well as to reflect on and showcase your own posts. We’ll be beginning On January 7th with our post that had the most clicks of all time. (dig through all those blog archives!)

I hope you join us! :)

I don’t know about you, but I never get to read all the great blogs that I’d like to. I know that I’m missing some great posts out there.

If you have a blog, we’d love to see some of your best stuff from the year. Join in our “Most” Posts of 2013 link-up! Create a post of “mosts”- highlight five of your own posts from the year that fit into the following categories:

  • Post with the most clicks
  • Post with the most comments
  • Post with the best picture
  • Post that was hardest to write
  • Post that was your personal favorite (not your readers’ favorite- your favorite)

The only rules are that the posts should be from your own blog, and they should be from 2013. Link-up at the bottom of this post!

Here is my entry:

Post with the most clicks:

Hands down, On Teaching from a State of Rest got the most clicks (and then it was featured at CiRCE, too!). This is a theme we’ll be continuing to explore here in 2014 as I am currently writing a series on teaching from a state of rest, to be posted later this winter. 

Post with the most comments:

I love hanging out with all of you in my comment box! We had a great discussion Toward Understanding the Moral Imagination this year. I’m hoping we can dig back into this topic again soon.

 

 

 Post with the best picture: 

Do I need to explain this one? :)




 

 Post that was hardest to write: 

Actually, I think writing the Moral Imagination post was harder to write, but since I’ve already used that for a category, this one takes second place. It’s difficult to write a birth story, but I’m so very glad I documented the story of Welcoming our Twins.

Post that was my personal favorite: 

When I describe my blog, I usually say that I’m trying to write about a life drenched in grace. This post captures that best, I think. And really, With God’s Help, How Can We Fail?

  1. Dear Sarah,
    I would love to be part of this but have no idea how to get the information
    Help Please

    • Sure, Gae. I have Google Analytics installed on my blog, but I have not had it on there long enough to use it for this. I went to “all time” in my blogger stats and the only 2013 post in the first five was the Teaching From a State if Rest post.

      As for my post with the most comments, I just tried to remember which ones had good commenting activity, and then clicked through several to see which one had the most. A couple of them had close to the same amount, so it took a little digging.

      That might not be helpful to you at all, I don’t know. Just remember for this link up it’s not an exact science. :)

      I’m looking forward to reading yours.

    • I used my post list in blogger. From your blog dashboard click on the Posts tab on the left side. When you list of posts pop up it will give you the statistics on which ones were clicked on the most and how many comments each post had as well. For the last three categories you are on your own!

  2. Aw, Sarah, your MOSTS are wonderful!! Thanks for sharing AND for hosting the carnival….
    I;m so happy to join in and I love the new twist with “mosts.” I was able to add those categories to my top 10 and wow…interesting ! I was surprised at the most clicked and the most commented upon!
