So it is a little bit late, but I think that just reflects that there is so much more to go over, yes?
The second year of There Are No Bad Ideas saw a pronounced shift away from politics and more to life and work. I think the absence of a national election is partly to blame there, although it is difficult to stay engaged all the time. Perhaps with a meaningful Senate race here in PA this fall we will see more political content return. Or maybe every post will simply also say:
Which I think could also be effective and somewhat easier to read. Now, as they say on Marketplace: Let's do the numbers:
Total entries: 344
Total ellipses: 32
Total memes: 70
In retrospect I would have thought it was more ellipses. I feel like I do that almost once a week. It turns out to be pretty much twice a month with a few extras thrown in. I do believe I will try to get that number up next year. Mrs. TANBI will be happy to see that I am still averaging less than an entry per day. Early on in year one there was real worry that I would become a multiple time per day poster and that that said something about my quality of life. I think the clearance sale entries skew the number of memes, as there was one post with over 20 this year.
Some highs and lows...
Jessica's Broadway opening.
Hotly contested shoe competition.
Can't really beat baby pictures.
With the lovely picture of my cousin Dana.
Which brings us to David's Top 10. Input from readers was small, so we won't have a reader's top ten this year - maybe next time. I tried to actually rank these. It's pretty hard as they are so different. Here they are:
#8 God Bless Family Guy
#7 Safety Net?
#5 Jobs Americans Don't Want
#4 Common Sense Items
#3 Congratulations Sis!
#2 End of The Affair
All in all I think a decent year for the blog. I'm looking forward to even better things in the next year!
