2017 Year End Analytics

I hit a brick wall in September. I hardly posted this fall after 13 years of steady blogging. The desire to transmit is a desire to share with fellow truth-seekers and perchance to convince. But to me this has been a discouraging year for truth and hope in the world, the church, and elsewhere.

I may still self-publish my funniest and most annoying thoughts from 2017.


1. Unsurprisingly, my most trafficked posts were the same old ones:
  • Socrates' to know the good quote (2012)
  • Wesleyans and baptism (2011)
  • socially-constructed identity (2010)
  • sermon in shoes song (2012)
  • beware of thayer's (2014)
  • why William Jennings Bryan was opposed to evolution (2008)
  • famous empiricists (2008)
  • free wesleyan commentary online (2013)
2. Most popular from this year:
3. Most popular tweets of the year:
  • With 4759 impressions, a chart I tweeted on the dates when Confederate monuments were erected won the year.
  • In the first part of the year, a tweet suggesting that democracy requires an educated electorate received 2726 impressions.
4. Most popular YouTube videos:
  • Sounds of ancient Greek letters (11,186 views)
  • Connecting words in Hebrew (10,578 views, 71,851 minutes of watching)
  • Exegetical research (2,059)
  • Greek Participles (2286)
  • Greek Verb (4282)
  • Overall of Greek (1874)
  • Philosophy of history (2306)
  • Several Hebrew videos in the 2000s
