I was browsing through the blog and began to wonder which posts were the most popular over the last year. I thought the results were so varied that it'd be cool to do a compilation post of sorts, so here goes!
The top post of '09 was (the potentially NSFW) As Long As There's No Hair. I was surprised to see this come out on top, but cool.
I was ecstatic to find that one of my Legendary Latinas posts made it to the top! I thought it'd be the Frida post because I got good feedback from that, but it was actually the Gloria Anzaldúa post. Considering my deep love for Anzaldúa, that was nice.
Another popular post was History Repeats Itself with Gender and the Economy. This post was about what's happened in the past when women become the breadwinners. I'm not sure what the figures are like now, not even a year later, but it'd be interesting to investigate a follow-up if the economy continues to decline.
I found it hilarious that another top post was Et Tu, Shakira? Seriously y'all, I just don't like new Shakira, or at least what I've heard so far. Maybe I'll give it another shot again, I don't know...
And rounding off this top 5 is Have a Happy Period, in which I profess my love for my Diva Cup and encouraged others to give it a try.
Honorable Mention: Manly Men Wear Skirts. This post is actually from August of '08, but it is still a top post! It has the most comments of all my posts, and a lot of the top search terms for my blog are related to men wearing skirts. I wrote a follow-up this summer during the blogathon, Manly Men Still Wear Skirts, complete with pictures!
I hope you enjoy this look back as I brainstorm what's coming up ahead.
