It’s January, and that means it’s time to look back at the previous year and see what we’ve done here at the Serial Distractions Nuclear Boogie Lab and Potato Shack™…
By far the most read post on the blog has been Too Sexy For This Epic: Feminization and Epic Fantasy. The issue of diversity and the supposed feminization of the genre is still an important one and it’s nice that people are still reading what I had to say about it.
The next most read post on the blog my revised opinions on the movie Ghostbusters II with On Second Thought: Ghostbusters II Redux. I had a lot of fun with this one and apparently others are as well.
That my top two posts of the year were pieces I wrote in previous years make me a bit sad, however. Guess I’ll have to write some better blog posts in the coming year.
Well…visitors have been pretty scarce at the blog this year (cue tumbling tumbleweed blowing through an empty corridor…). We had 1540 views during all of 2013…the lowest count since the blog started in 2009. It’s getting kinda lonely ’round here…
In years past, I’ve gone through my reviewed books of the previous year to select a top 10-12 list of “Top Distractions” for the year. Turns out that I didn’t do very many reviews over 2013. So I’m going to pick my Top Three Distractions of 2013–here presented in no particular order:
Well, that’s it for this little 2013 retrospective. Looking back, I think I could have done better by my modest little blog. Looking forward, I think I can only do better for 2014.
