Well, we've made it to the end of another year. Like so many other fashion bloggers, I usually mark the occasion by recapping some of my favorite outfits from the past 12 months, but this year I decided to do things a little bit differently. As I was looking back through my posts from this past year, I found myself focusing on the posts that had gotten the most views and comments. My viewership and participation have been down over the last couple of months, so I was curious to see what constituted a "popular post." I went through and picked out some of my most popular posts in 2012. Let's take a look, shall we?

So, what does all this mean? Hell if I know. I guess you can never tell what will constitute a popular post. I mean, clearly bad outfits, crudeness, and tragedy will bring all the peeps to the yard, but there were some good outfits and positive posts mixed in there too. I have hope for humanity, yet. As for me, I'm just going to keep doing my thing until I don't feel like doing it anymore. Looking at these stats, I really seem to be off my game lately. Maybe I'll get my mojo back in 2013. If not, I guess by this time next year, I'll be the only one left who reads this blog.
Happy New Year!
