The Top 10 Posts from Don’t Eat The Shrimp in 2010

When I wrote about my most visited posts from 2009, I made the following observations:

  • People love Mad Men;
  • How-to’s are big draws and are evergreen (i.e. they draw traffic for a long time);
  • Write about popular topics with your own personal perspective; and
  • Sadly, writing about people who have passed away draws traffic.

Below are the most visited posts from 2010. A few specific notes:

  • The “What is it about junk” post was linked to from the “Freshly Pressed” opening page of WordPress and traffic went nuts;
  • After writing about Emerson Foote, I got an email from a member of his family; and
  • People love Scotch, or at least really good ads about Scotch.
Great example of a 5 Minute Speech to Inform
What is it about “junk,” that caught on?
Remember your past.
