Below is what WordPress.com had to say about my blog for 2010. I admit I see no rhyme or reason to which posts are more popular than others, and I wonder whether it’s the writing or just the topic that seems to make for a successful post. Thankfully, I don’t have to depend on this for a living, because obviously I still have a lot to learn.
Still, I certainly appreciate your readership!
My personal favourite is Persons, Dolphins, and Margaret Somerville which I posted in March 2010, but I would encourage you to check out some of my other, not-so-popular posts – I think they’re pretty good too:
- Goodbye ASME
- When it comes to science, never say never
- Designing is not problem-solving
- Learn to practise; practise to learn
