Taking the easy way out this year, with the five posts written in 2010 that got the most hits and that tell the story of me over the course of the year.
Winter solstice – I praise the virtues of the winter solstice and the upswing of available daylight that fills my little SAD-afflicted self with a little glee. When I shamelessly promoted this on Twitter, it ended up as a Top Tweet for the day, which allowed me the best day of hits…ever.
Worst case scenario – What went through my mind and my soul and my body as I recovered from a serious illness and subsequent surgery. Written the first week of 2010, as I tried to make sense of all that happened in the first week of December 2009.
Friday cat blogging: Tuxedo cat world domination edition – K.C. and Casey joined Perl for a spectacular post about tuxedo cats while K.C.’s human joined me in New York for BlogHer (and Casey’s human pouted about the way he “uses the litter box”). Thank you to all who promoted this post, making this little blogger feel special during the blogging conference.
Choice or circumstance – Making one of the hardest decisions of my life, and how it impacts the definition of who I am and who I will be. (Thank you, Melissa, for listening to my voice and sharing with your community.)
Dear Mr. Huckabee… – Sometimes I can’t let politics escape the blog, and when Mike Huckabee compared insuring those with pre-existing health conditions to insuring a car after a wreck or a house after it has burned down, it angered me. Especially considering Mr. Huckabee’s own type 2 diabetes self.
I just found your blog and am thrilled to find another young Type 2. I was diagnosed two weeks before my 38th birthday. I look forward to reading your blog. Feel free to check mine out as well. Happy New Year!
