    I am guessing the ones in a brown ink were the most popular of all? I enjoyed them all, Ray. I like hearing other’s thoughts on issues as well. I thought Habakkuk was a great series and learned a lot. I vote for that as the best of the best.

    Hi Sharon – Good guess on the brown ink, but that is just specific to your computer. All the links start as blue, but they turn brownish/red after you have clicked on them. Try it! Click on a blue link, and when you come back to it, it will have changed color. It is supposed to be a way for you to know whether or not you have already followed a link. Thanks for the feedback on Habakkuk. Anyone else?

    Well, okay, then. What ARE the top five for the year??? just curious…:)

    I could tell you, but then I would have to kill you. 🙁

    Actually, I can’t really say because I don’t really know. I don’t have precise counts for the posts, so even the twenty listed above are only my best guess. But, I have a pretty good idea of which posts get visited the most, so I believe it is a fairly accurate list.

    So, the top five? I would probably guess: Habakkuk; Family Rules; Ruth Graham Poems; Mike Huckabee’s sermon; and Golden Compass vs. Narnia (not ranked – just in publication order once again).

    It is amazing how many visits come through search engines. For example, just Google the words – golden compass results – and you will see the Compass/Narnia post appear first out of about 3 million entries. I don’t understand how that works!

    I have enjoyed many of the posts. I thought it was fun to have the “Guess the Country” contest (trying to guess which would be the next new country to visit the blog) Also the Christmas trees, and the “blog-roll” comments. Guess I like contests! Also appreciated The Ruth Bell Graham poems and tributes. Learned a lot that I never knew about Habakkuk, and also read all the sermon soundbytes – thanks for all the good stuff. Forgot to say, I enjoy the jokes as well! And of course, Sam’s great guitar songs.
