Strangely enough, this last month is the single biggest traffic month of this blog's long and illustrious career. This seems strange, given that there weren't a lot of special events or outside sites linking in. I can only assume this means that many of you put "Visit Matt's Blog More Regularly" on your new year's resolution list.
This is a consistently popular post. I can only assume that some teacher is sending kids to this post to learn that just because she gave them one star on their homework, that doesn't mean that they haven't written masterpieces.
Every time a man is about to have his tenth wedding anniversary, he searches on the internet for something to give to his wife or a funny picture he can send to her. Every single one of those men gets sent to this post. This post alone has generated more traffic in the last three years than all of Los Angeles combined.
My friend Ryan kindly agreed to share his thoughts about being a minister who struggles with his weight and health. Honest, open, frank... this was a great post and deserves all the traffic it can get.
Author Gary Thomas shared some thoughts from his most recent book. I thought this was a great post, as well. Gary does a great job of helping us see our own unexamined beliefs and where they depart from reality.
The traffic from this post was caused by five or six people, consumed by jealousy, who kept refreshing the page over and over, reading it out loud, reading it to their friends and saying incredulously, "Mikalatos gets to go to Thailand? Why don't I get to go to Thailand?"
