Seventh Day of the Month

At the beginning of the year some bloggers review their posts for the year; I've never had enough interest in doing so to do a formal review. But it has always seemed fitting to do something for the New Year, so here's another edition of my usual substitute for a real review of the year: these are the posts that were published on the seventh day of each month of the year 2010.

January
Deg Gud Till Aere, Oss Till Gavn

February
Three Poem Drafts
The Sight of a Bear or a Fox

March
Links and Links

April
Gilman on the Problem of Evil

May
'Every event has a cause'

June

July
To Have Nought is Ours

August
On Myers on Baber

September
Whewell and Found Poetry

October
Philippa Foot (1920-2010)
Linkable Thinkables

November

December
Cogito Ergo Sum XIV
Beam on Our Bewilder'd Mind
Pardon II

The most popular post, in terms of views, was my 2005 post Rule of Law vs. Rule by Law, which absolutely exploded into popularity during 2010. The second most popular post in 2010, which the rule by law post dethroned from being the most viewed post several years in a row, is the 2004 Best Known Philosophical Sentences; it is still, far and away, the most viewed post of all time on this blog; even though it was beat out for first place in 2010, practically every day someone somewhere in the world types into a search engine "philosophical sentences" and gets this post. I don't have precise enough statistics to say what was the most viewed post from 2010 in 2010; but I suspect very strongly from what I've seen in my referrer logs that it was Immanuel Kant's Guide to a Good Dinner Party, which dominated through most of August and early September because it was picked up on several other blogs and on Twitter.

The two blogs from which I consistently get the most traffic are Just Thomism and Edward Feser; the blog that has sent the most traffic my way, however, is the First Things blog, First Thoughts, but it's in the form of occasional avalanches.
