On Friday, 3 August 2007, the date of our first posted post that was posted, the world twitched imperceptibly, a global nanoflinch, an earthquake with the power of a morning fart, or less. It’s our 10th Anniversary, because this:
3 August 2007 – Whelped
3 August 2008 – 1st year Blogiversary
3 August 2018 – 10th year Blogiversary
There are now 4,356 posts in our archives.
Steal, lift, purloin, burgle and abscond with anything you find here, just link back and give us credit for the source.
As with previous years, we’ve celebrated those posts that received the largest number of hits, not only for the past year, but for the entire life of Tacky Raccoons, and this year is no different.
We’ve featured the Top 11 Posts every year since 3 August 2008 and this year is no different. There are some surprises, and I still don’t know why some get an exorbitant amount of hits while others fade.
The numbers adjacent to the titles below indicate ranking for the previous 12 months, followed by the previous year’s ranking, and the third numeral is for all-time popularity (August 2007 – August 2018). “NR” indicates Not Ranked.
