The “Top Posts” according to my WordPress statistics . . .

First, Happy Easter to all.

I am pretty certain this present post would not be here today if it were not for the fact that today is Easter.  I wanted to check to see what, if anything, I had said here about Easter in the past. While here, I decided to create a post!

These statistics cover the time since the inception of this blog.  You can be pretty sure that — for various reasons — these are not too accurate.  For one thing, the views of “Home page / Archives” are 6,232 — and I am pretty sure that those views are not reflected in the other statistics.  So f you visit the blog and look only at the most recent post, I don’t think that counts as a “view” of any particular post.

I find it interesting that the first post listed below has received so many more views than most of the others.  It could be that there are one or two people who are particularly interested in that topic, and they keep returning to it. Or maybe someone saved a “bookmark” to that post, and that is simply the way they arrive at the blog.

I am placing this paragraph in boldface, because I don’t want anyone to miss it. Don’t assume that the figures below are “typical.” In fact, my stats show MORE THAN TWENTY POSTS with ONLY ONE VIEW! I’m pretty sure they had more than that, for reasons hinted at above, but still! 

Here is a list of the top ten posts:
