How Punditry Kicked My Artistic Ass This Year

Effects are perceived, whereas causes are conceived. Effects always precede causes in the actual developmental order
Marshall McLuhan
Maybe my next art show should be called Botgirl's Punditry Circus . . .

I ran a few reports to evaluate how this year's blog stats compared to 2009 and to see which posts were most popular. I was happy to see that readership is up by around 15% (unique visitors) and pageviews increased more than 45%.

But I was bemused to discover that none of the top ten most viewed posts were about identity, machinima or art. Instead, seven were analyst-style pontification and three were issues-based parodies.

Interesting. Maybe I need to consider changing Brand Botgirl®. I heard a rumor that Dusan might be looking for a change. Wonder if there's a place for me at Metanomics.

Anyway, here are links to my ten most popular posts:
