Top Ten Posts

Boredom drove me to start looking at the stats at the Redneck Garage where I discovered yet another interesting set of site summaries. These stats show how many times a post has been viewed as opposed to being liked (which is the list on the left if viewed in a browser). Here are the Top Ten Posts:

#1 – Who Am I?
It is comforting to know that as of this week, people in the blog-o-sphere are still more interested in who I am than those seeking to make a rat trap extremely deadly. Based on the trends, I suspect I will soon be displaced by the desire to kill rats.

#2 – Making A Rat Trap Extremely Deadly
Obviously there are a lot of people out there with rats who steal the bait and are looking for a way to make their traps more efficient killing machines.

#3 – About The Redneck Garage
My Garage as been surpassed by skilled rats.

#4 – Failed Blogger
Apparently people in the blog-o-sphere are interested in reading about my failure as a blogger.

#5 – Gear-Head Daughter
I was happy to see that people are interested in reading about my daughter’s desire to learn how to do her own car repairs.

#6 – A View From Within A Police Car
So these people could fall into two different groups. Either they are wondering what I was arrested for (I was in the front seat on a ride-along) or they are planning to do something illegal and want to find out what it is like to be in the back of a police car as part of their decision making process. Disclaimer: Keep in mind, I’m a design engineer so I actually consider the consequences of each decision I make…the readers of the post may not think the same way.

#7 – The Missing “r”
Either there arrr people looking for a missing pirate or have misplace their letter “r” and hope to find it on my blog.

#8 – Reblog: Car Buying Flowchart
Apparently there are a lot of like minded people who are looking for a better way to buy a car (too bad this is a reblog and I can’t take credit).

#9 – This Ain’t Disneyland
The only thing I can think of is that people are looking for a vacation alternative.

#10 – A Thousand Words
No doubt students that have been given an assignment to write a paper with at least a thousand words.

  1. I’m glad you shared this because I hadn’t read #10 before. Beautiful post. And I, too, long for a day when we are no longer vying with cell phones for attention while dining with friends or family.

    1. Thanks Nancy. The message on my cell phone tells people that “this is the worst way to contact me”. Half the time I don’t even hear my own phone ring…scares me when it does ring.

      1. That’s funny!
        I’ve gotta admit, I use mine a lot. Way more convenient than firing up the laptop each time I want to check email or read some blog posts, etc. I try to be very respectful when others are around though.

        1. Part of the problem is I get no reception at work (actually cell phones were not even allowed in my building until recently…a hugh Lab culture change). At home my Android tablet is my main device.

    1. It is not a good story since it was said by my friend who is a police officer (who I spent today with on patrol). He had just arrested a young women for DUI. We were inside of Santa Rita Jail…fifth largest in the U. S. The young woman had made a comment about a ruckus on the other side of the intake area. Keith’s response was “this ain’t Disneyland”.

    1. Thanks Laura Lynn. Nancy got me started looking at all the interesting data and turning it into a post. I have to admit, Nancy out does me with some of the data for her blog…which is a good thing. Patrick
