This is my 100th post since I began blogging here in the manosphere back in March. Given that it is a nice, big, round number, I’ve decided to break away from my usual pattern and do something special. For one, I’ve been inspired to update my About page. In this post I will cover some of the past, present and future of my blog. That means a list of my favorite, and least favorite posts, along with a poll so that my loyal readers can give their own opinion. I will also cover traffic features and chart the progress of my blog since it started. Then I will also give everyone an idea of some of the blog posts by other bloggers which I’ve been the most fond of in the last few weeks.
What a Long Strange Road it has Been
I began this blog on March 10th, 2013. As of the time this post was written, here are some stats about my blog:
I have received 57,151 All Time Views
There have been 1,763 Comments
My overall average of views per day since I started is 291. Here is a monthly tally:
March: 30; April: 96; May: 112; June: 231; July: 398; August: 478; September: 763
My single best day for views was August 29th, when I published my post Market Failure and received 1276 views.
The overwhelming majority of views come from the United States. #2 is Canada, followed by the United Kingdom.
Since my blog started, search engines have proven to be the single biggest referrer to my blog. Not too far behind in the #2 spot is Sunshinemary, with Hawaiinlibertarian taking the #3 slot. Free Northerner is in fourth place, followed by Dalrock in fifth.
Speaking of search engines, the single most popular term that has sent people to this blog has been my name (and the name of the blog). But if you include similar terms aimed towards the same purpose, than the most popular search term by far involves “female attraction”, or “what women find attractive in men.”
As for where I send people, the most popular recipient of clicks from my blog has proven to be Sunshinemary by a landslide. Taking up the #2 slot is Dalrock, and in third place we have rising star Embraceyourfeminity.
Since I’m on the subject of stars, my star post remains to this day The Five Vectors of Female Attraction. #2 is Market Failure. In third place we have Going APE: What Attributes do Women Find Attractive in Men (which is a recap of my LAMPS theory). #4 is The Need and The Void, followed by Moral Agency in Women-Revisited in fifth place.
Lastly, we turn to the comments. Besides myself, the top commenter is the infamous Deti, with 86 comments. In second place we have surprise runner up Elspeth, with 67 comments. Third place is taken by Deep Strength with 54 comments. Butterfly Flower takes up fourth place with 50 comments, and Sigyn is in fifth place with 46.
The most commented on post is Market Failure, with 159 comments. In second place, with 73 comments, is Exploring Ideas and Questioning Myself- Episode 1. Third place is occupied by Market Differences Between Christian and Secular Marriages, which has 69 comments. In fourth place we have All Alone in the Dark with 66 comments. And in fifth place, with 63 comments, is A Gross Indecency.
This brings the recap to an end.
Casting a Shadow
In the six or so months that I have been blogging I have written five score posts. Some have been pretty good, a handful great, and a few others, not so much. All but one has been open to the public, and so I will base the following off of the public posts. The following five posts are, in my opinion, the most important that I have written:
1) The Five Vectors of Female Attraction– [Which I have cleaned up some in Going APE: What Attributes do Women Find Attractive in Men?]
So, what about the worst posts that I have written? Here is my list:
Of these, I’m not sure which qualifies as the worst. Since I seem to be having some trouble with this, I will trust it to my loyal readers to clue me in. This brings us to the first poll: Which of these posts in the worst?
Most of the bloggers on my blogroll are Christian, but not all write specifically on the subject of Christianity. But when they do, it is often illuminating. Below are some Christian specific posts I have been reading.
As I have become more focused on improving my own masculinity, I have also developed a greater appreciate for femininity in women. Here are a few blogs and posts which address the subject of femininity-
Of course, the majority of blogs on my blogroll are Red Pill in nature, and provide a goodly number of posts on the subject to examine.
Sunshinemary wonders if promiscuity can affect a man as significantly as it can affect women in The Promiscuity Widower. In case you missed it, she blogged up a firestorm when she questioned Rollo’s argument that men and women love differently in He was Unhaaaaapy.
Women crave for being loved, not for loving. They scream out at you for sympathy all day long, they are incapable of giving any in return, for they cannot remember your affairs long enough to do so…They cannot state a fact accurately to another, nor can that other attend to it accurately enough for it to become information. Now is not all this the result of want of sympathy?
Empathologism delves into the double standard of the way Churchians hold men and women to account with Men Apologize to Your Wives… For Sex. At the same blog God is Laughing dares to enter Into the Maw of the Matriarchy.
Over at Alpha is Assumed, Martel rebukes me for a lack of Christian joy. Earlier, in My Sacrifice, he examines how the Bible mixes responsibility and reward when dealing with men, and husbands specifically.
That’s All Folks!
And that concludes my Blogapalooza. Well, almost. I didn’t cover the future. I have a few posts in the works right now. One covers the subject of Redemption, and how we should address it in the context of salvation and avoiding people turning to the sin in the first place. Another post, tentatively titled Romantic Architecture, will examine the concept of attraction “floors” and “ceilings.” Of course, since this is my 100th post, I should end with something special. So I think I will end with one last poll, wherein I provide my readers with an opportunity to direct the subject of my next post. Or to suggest a topic/subject of their own if they don’t like the options.
