“What a long, strange trip it’s been.”

Just out of curiosity, I looked back to see what I could learn from reviewing thirteen years of analytics on my Ennyman’s Territory blog. It started as an inventory of the top blog posts of the decade.

Here’s some of what I found.

First, I sure didn’t have very many visitors for those first several years. In retrospect, I’m not even sure why I kept going. Nevertheless, every once in a while something would flash like lightning, strike a chord, run like the wind, take off like a rocket, blaze like a wildfire and go bananas. Or something like that.

Here are the top blog posts (in terms of page views) from each year since it was started.

THANK YOU to everyone who has stopped by Ennyman’s Territory over the past thirteen years. I know there are always other things to do, to watch, to read, so I generally try to make it worth your while to visit when you can.

This listicle was created at the end of 2019 and included a wish for each of my readers experience unanticipated blessings in 2020. What we’ve experienced this year is most assuredly something unanticipated. As it is written, “Who can tell what a day will bring forth?”

Stay safe, wash your hands, and make the most of your time. We live but once. It’s not what happens to us but how we respond that says who we are.

Wishing you the best, wherever you are.
