Shamelessly self-indulgent list

Everyone’s making a list. It’s the year-end list disease. A list for top crime stories, a list for top blog posts, a list for top lists (yes, they’re out there).

So, not wanting to buck convention or anything and feeling the immense peer pressure, I am offering my own list. An utterly useless list of shameless self-promotion. Below you will find the Top 5 most commented posts of the last year, the Top 5 most viewed posts of the year and the 5 posts that I wished people read more.

Then I will open it up to you to nominate your favorite visual accompaniment to a post. If you do not comment, I will kill a bee (and as you all know, since the great bee exodus, they’re an endangered species). So, time for some “me, me and me”.

Most comments:

Most views – two of these posts are recent posts, which is testament to the immense power of getting linked to by Radley Balko. If it weren’t for him, this blog would’ve had 3 hits all year. So thanks Radley!

And finally, because this nonsense has gone on long enough, here are my personal favorites from the last year:

  • Do pedophiles have free will?
  • It’s a game of numbers.
  • This I believe.
  • Crazy? Jail’s the place for you.
  • When is an assault not an assault?

Now, go talk amongst yourselves while I write another post or something.

      Right? What the hell? I think this “analysis” says a lot about my readers but for fear of alienating them I’m not going to spell it out.
