Blogging in Feb of 2012

Well, you all get your money back.

In My 500th Blog Post, I guaranteed that there is NO WAY February would break the page view record. I even said "If I'm lying, all my readers get all their money back for the month."

Leave a comment on this post and I promise that I will refund every dime you spent on admission to this blog in February.

Yes, much to my shock, February broke the page-view record. You would think that by now this would not surprise me anymore (but you would be wrong). I've lost track on how many months in a row this has happened. I am pretty sure it can't continue forever, but perhaps I am wrong. It still mystifies me that anyone looks at this blog.

If you read this blog in February, thanks for reading. Leave a comment (yeah ... right).

And what have all these page-viewers been drawn to in February?

#1 ... Female vs. Male Brain Oct 28, 2011 .... Now up to #3 on the "all time" most viewed list. I am still not sure why there is such renewed interest in this post. It was popular when first posted, but never close to what it has been like it is over the past couple of months.

#2 ... My 500th Blog Post Feb 5, 2012 .... Already rocketed up to #10 on the "all time" most viewed list. That was actually shockingly quick. I hope that it was not that I mentioned the breast-flashing Vancouver chick that made it so popular.

#3 ... Neil Zhang Feb 8, 2012 .... I feel like I am doing a community service with this post. I'm sure several of these page views were people trying to verify the scam. I assume I educated some of them and perhaps saved them financially. (that is my story and I'm sticking to it)

#4 ... 2012 Bigfoot Barleywine @SierraNevada Feb 11, 2012 .... Very strong showing for one of my beer reviews on the Zymurgy BBIA posts. It would take too much effort to actually verify this, but I am pretty confident that this is already the most viewed post in that particular collection.

#5 ... Women and Beer Jul 23, 2011 .... Still ranked #2 on the "all time" most viewed list. As I say just about every month ... with women and beer ... what else do you need on a blog?

#6 ... Sheppy Brew Web Stats Dec 8, 2010 .... As I have discussed a couple times now, it is very mysterious that this has been so popular over the past couple of months. Currently, it is #6 on the "all time" most viewed list.

#7 ... Apricot Lovin' Brew Day Feb 14, 2012 .... This seems to be doing real well for a SheppyBrew brew-day post.

#8 ... Beervertising and Snow Sculptures Feb 10, 2012 .... A little beer humor and some nice pictures of my kids by snow sculptures.

#9 ... Tweedle beetles Mar 2, 2006 .... #4 on the "all time" most viewed list. I don't know why. It doesn't make much sense.

#10 ... Avery Maharaja Feb 5, 2012 .... Another of my Zymurgy BBIA beer reviews. Its numbers are more in line with the rest than the Bigfoot review at #4.
