A few weeks ago I posted a narrative that discussed the 2011 year in my blogging adventures and how we had used the various criteria that get written about in this particular part of PiercingMetal.com – After this went online I got to thinking. What were the most popular posts for the year in peoples minds and what were they reading more than some of the other stuff that we had offered them? With that in mind I checked the statistics for the blog and listed the Top 20 Posts that were accessed in 2011. You will notice that some of them are from previous years in addition to what was written in 2011 and I felt that it would be interesting to see the whole list as opposed to just focusing on items that were written in 2011. Clicking on the title will launch the post so please do give them a visit. Perhaps you missed it when it was first written yourself, or meant to leave a comment and didn’t. There is truly no time like the present.
I had to say that the list shocked me just a little bit as well, but beyond the shock I want to send super kudos and thanks to the fans of the Black Veil Brides who seem to be digging into my concert reports about the band with voracious appetite. I was happy to see some of my more unique pieces like the one about The 69 Eyes and Powerglove getting a lot of attention since they were done with a certain flair. While glad that my memorial reports on both Peter Steele and Dio got some serious reading, the loss of these two titans in Metal still bums me out almost two years after their passing. I did chuckle when I saw how a couple of the 2010 Comic Con items were popular reads while the 2011 ones had not yet built up any steam.
Thanks again to the readers for making the Official Blog of PiercingMetal.com so much fun to do. Maybe next year I will consider focusing this kind of item as narratives written exclusively in 2012 but maybe not. That all depends on what manifests as being the most popular during this calendar year.
