I love lists. Lists of best books, films or people of the year are always my favorite reads this time of year.
Looking at my stats, I’m always interested to see what posts are the most popular here. Check out the list of the most-read links of the year:
10. Jessica Alba – stepmom and secret agent in SpyKids: All the Time in the World – Admittedly, I never did see this movie, but I was able to participate in a conference call with Jessica Alba and got some great insight on her role as mother (in real life) and stepmom in this film.
9. Hood vs. Evil – I loved this movie. The original too.
8. What I learned at Social Media Camp – I was excited to be invited to participate on a panel at this year’s Social Media Camp in San Diego. Always great people to connect with at these events.
7. Botox and Beauty Queens – I had almost forgotten about this story from earlier in the year. I’d love to know what’s happened with this mom and her daughter.
6. Living with food allergies – how to keep your child healthy – An important post that offers a cool resource to send your children to school with that will set your mind at ease.
5. Father’s Day Gift Guide – I love picking out gifts for my husband so it’s always fun to put lists like this together.
4. Fatherhood – The Other ‘F’ Word – A great film, awesome music and fun – the other ‘f’ word I’d use to describe this awesome rockumentary.
3. San Diego BlogHunt – This was so last minute, but apparently, pretty popular despite the fact that there were less than a dozen participants. Quite fun and something I hope to duplicate for next year’s BlogHer conference.
2. Playful Learning – fun & educational projects for kids – As part of the blog tour for the author of this book, I’m pretty sure the traffic for this came from her efforts and I so appreciate working with partners like this who get how important it is to share and market the hell out of something good.
1. Spread the Word, not an STD – I’m guessing the stats are not correct on this. Pretty sure there are more people with STDs than we’re led to believe. At least there are a lot more than we know of searching for info on them, so it leads me to believe there’s a reason for that.
Yep, my most popular post of the year was on an important subject and yet one I don’t think enough parents talk about with their kids. Or enough partners talk about with each other. Sex is fun. Safe sex is funner. Trust me.
Have a happy, healthy & hip 2012. Thanks for reading.
