Adrian's Year In Review: The Best Blogs of 2015

Yep, it's that time of year again.  Where I count down the most viewed blogs and my personal favorite blogs of the year.  This past year, 2015, didn't see as many views as past years.  However, I am not in this for the views.  I do this because I like it. 

Long ago, all the way back in 2008, I started this blog over on Myspace.  I made a promise that I would average one blog per week.  This year I have 55 blogs with this review blog being number 56.  It's the most blogs I've written in a year since 2012 (65 blogs.)  2013 saw me write 55 blogs, and 2014 saw 53 blogs. 

So to start off, I will count down the top five most viewed blogs.  As I remind everyone every year, this is a bit unfair to myself.  A blog that I posted in January has 11 more months to be viewed than a blog that's posted in December.  But writers can't be choosers so here's the countdown. 

Now, I usually do a top 5 countdown.  But this year, I've had something that hasn't happened in a long time.  A tie.  There was a three way tie at number 6, so I thought I would include them.

6.  (Tie)  27 Views.

100,000 Miles

After 14 years my car finally flipped 100,000 miles.

Draught of Living Death? Wait what?

A Harry Potter blog?  You bet.  I have a number of questions for J.K.  This is one of them.

The best stories are the true ones.  This one has so much truth that it goes into beyond weird territory.

New Pedal Day: Blue

I bought a guitar pedal that hadn't really been reviewed.  So a lot of folks looked up my review online to see what I thought of it.

New Pedal Day: Biyang Overdrive

Again, I posted a review of a neat guitar pedal, and players wanted to know my thoughts on it.

Now onto my personal favorites of the year.

5.  Beyonce, I Hate To Break It To You, But....

I have bad news to break to Beyoncé, and she isn't going to like it.

When you go from working one extreme to the other it can make life kind of hairy.

3.  How Do I Woo That Special Gal Without Being Seen As A Stalker?

I suck at girls.  This blog proves it.

2.  Songs In The Key Of C...anadian

My Dad is a smartass from a long line of smartasses.  This blog only proves it.

1.  I Am The Table

Even though it's been a view years since that disastrous, "Lulu" album from Metallica and Lou Reed, I hadn't had a chance to give it the ribbing it deserved... until now. 

So that's it everyone.  Another year and I have achieved my blog goal.  I will remain committed to my writing.  In a way, I hope weird things continue to happen to me.  I get the best blogs that way.  Happy holidays and happy new year.
