The Worst of 2015

happy-new-year-2016-5

Seems like everyone is re-posting their most loved posts of the year.  So I decided to do the opposite and give you a list of my top 10 least viewed posts for the year.  The main thing I noticed about all of these posts is that none of them have any pictures!  I suppose this is probably the biggest reason that they haven’t been widely viewed.  I was also a brand new blogger at the time that most of these were posted.  So if you missed any of these and have time to read, please by all means indulge yourself!  😉

Here they are….

#10 Traveling Onward – This is the story about Terah and his family.  It is here that we get our first glimpse of Abraham (known here as Abram). The original story can be found in Genesis 11:10-31.

#9 Obsidian Water – This story describes the second day of creation.  The sky and the sea are finally brought to life.  The original story can be found in Genesis 1:6-8.

#8 Spontaneous Formations of Life – This is day six of creation and one of my favorite days.  Animals and mankind are beautifully created.  The original story can be found in Genesis 1:24-31.

#7 Impropriety – This story is about Noah and shows how he struggled with sin just as much as the rest of us do.  The original story can be found in Genesis 9:18-28 – 10:1-32.

#6 The Deliverer – Here’s one of the first poems that I ever wrote.  It’s about a woman who tried to share her faith and leaves feeling discouraged.  I think many of us can relate to similar situations.

#5 Too Late for Goodbyes – It’s in this story that we witness the death of Abraham’s beloved Sarah.  I actually cried while writing this one.  The original story can be found in Genesis 22:20-24 – 23:1-2.

#4 Rules and Rainbows – In this story, God has a conversation with Noah.  Agreements and promises are being made about the future of the world.  The original story can be found in Genesis 9:1-17.

#3 Swearing By Posterity – In this story, Abraham decides to look for a bride for his son Isaac.  The original story can be found in Genesis 24:1-9.

#2 Creatures of the Air and Sea – Here we see day five of creation being described.  Sea-creatures, birds, and fish were all created on this day.  The original story can be found in Genesis 1:20-23.

#1 Waiting and Watching – This is the story of Noah and his family aboard the ark.  During this time, they are patiently waiting for the waters to recede.  The original story can be found in Genesis 7:24 – 8:1-14.

 

I hope you check out some of these posts, despite their lack of pretty pictures.  😉  I also want to wish all of you a very Happy New Year!  It’s been so much fun getting to know all of you and I look forward to another year of meeting new bloggers and continuing on with the wonderful friendships that I have developed over this past year.  Love and blessings to you and yours!  ~M

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for my blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 17,000 times in 2015. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 6 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

  7. Yes, it is known that posts lacking GIFs or photos or any kind (don’t ask me why) tend to be noticed less. I’m glad you figured that out, and are improving upon that.

    I know that the Lord led you and I down similar paths for a reason, and I’m so thankful for your friendship. I look forward to getting to know you better!

  10. Nope… It’s usually our biggest family celebration of the year. But this year I’ll be home alone. I plan to make some festive treats for tomorrow though. Hope you’re planning something fun with your family.

  11. We don’t have anything planned, either. We rarely do. You’ll be all alone? Where will your young ones be? I’m sorry to hear you’ll be all alone, Michelle…:(

  12. Everyone is going to a youth party at church. My husband will be helping out. Don’t feel bad… I just don’t feel like babysitting a bunch of kids all night. Otherwise I could go too.

  13. What a fun post. When I started blogging I didn’t realize how important pictures were either. They make a big difference. Live and learn. 🙂

  19. Fortunately, I’m not big on sweets… I usually feel terrible after I eat anything like this. Which is good… then I don’t eat the stuff I shouldn’t.

  20. Very true.:)

    I’m not super big on sweets, but I do tend to snack mostly in the PM. And I don’t feel guilty.
