a Different Angle’s Top 10 favourite posts of 2011. Which one’s yours?


Here’s the first post for 2012 and it’s going to be dedicated to 2011!  So much for not looking back…. 

Well, I just felt compelled to put finger to keyboard when I discovered an email from WordPress in my inbox stating that whilst I was busy celebrating the arrival of 2012, they were busy crunching number and diessecting a Different Angle’s blog statistics for 2011.

And it made for an interesting read!


The concert hall at the Syndey Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 123,300 times in 2011. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 45 sold-out performances for that many people to see it!

In 2011, there were 91 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 109 posts. There were 288 pictures uploaded.

The busiest day of the year was October 31st. The most popular post that day was Casa Bella Halloween’s Video published! . Which is amazing since a limited amount of people were actually able to attend yet thousands of you actually watched the video online.

The ‘dossier’ then lists the most popular articles of 2011… the top 10 are listed below (in no particular order)…. which one is your favourite?

S0, did yours make the top 10?

The one I find most interesting is Living with the Devil. It received a staggering amount of reads!  Clearly inflated by Google searches on the subject. This is obviously a very important subject to many of you! Of course, I couldn’t be more thrilled as the article is an excerpt from my manuscript, Coming Up For Air, which I’ve vowed to return to this year.

Don’t forget, our most recent posts can all be browsed from the a Different Angle Facebook page. Simply like the page and click on the NEWS tab.  And if you’re not already a fan, LIKE US now by using the link to the right.

Thanks very much for reading all of the posts in 2011… I’ll be working hard on making sure that all of the 2012 posts are equally as interesting. And, of course, if you have any favourite subjects you’d like me to write about, simply send an email.

    The article that captured my attention the most from the list above was ‘Controversial Manuscript’. I am SO excited about this book release I can’t tell you. It may be because I know I am going to be able to relate to the content. I am also completely excited for you. I love your honesty in everything that you do. I love your professionalism & your thoroughness, & in some way I think we love your articles because most of the time you seem to know how we all feel, & say what we cannot or won’t say. I look forward to another year with intreague x
