“fuck a blue apron is bullshit”

yesterday i took a look at a bunch of stats on my blog that wordpress graciously supplies me with. for instance, i can look at which posts were most viewed each week, month, or year. i find this particularly interesting because posts seem to wax and wane in popularity (relatively popularity, i mean — i’m no perez hilton, obv) with no apparent consistency. some are popular for years, some for a few weeks, some don’t get any views until quite some time after i’ve written them…it’s hard to predict, and neat. i like it.

for example, in 2015 the posts about acting sexy, public toilet diarrhea, every new hipster song has a chorus…, fuck lawns, rich white trash, and my review of mad max: fury road were among the top posts that people navigated straight to via google or whatever other search engine. i think the hipster chorus post, rich white trash, and the review of mad max make sense since they were all related to things that were happening at the time, and i think the acting sexy post was popular because of losers looking up pics of hot girls, but diarrhea and lawns? who looks up blog posts on that stuff? that’s weird.

in 2016, my post on blue apron got a lot more views than any others, and i wrote it back in 2015. the hipster chorus post got a substantial number of views too though. but then my innocuous posts about 30 second outdoor cleaner and amorphis sucking garnered a surprising number of views, while the rich white trash post got a few but nowhere near what it got in 2015.

and so far in 2017, the blue apron post is still leading the way as my most viewed, with the hipster chorus post not far behind. the 30 seconds outdoor cleaner and amorphis sucking posts continue to perform surprisingly well in third and fourth place.

perhaps the post that has surprised me the most with its performance is the one about stephen king’s awful made for tv remake of the shining. it’s not racking em up by any means, but the fact that 35 people have stumbled onto it so far this year makes me really happy. that film is such a fucking piece of shit that even if i can let just a handful of people know how bad it is, i’m practically on par with mother teresa. the same goes for amorphis, and letting people know what a joke they have become. this is important stuff!

another interesting thing is to see what search terms brought people to my blog. my faves are “trudeaus latest bullshit,” “fuck a blue apron is bullshit,” and “blue apron is for lazy people.” all solid.
