We’ve featured the Top 11 Posts every year since this blog was whelped on 3 August 2007 and this year is no different. There are some surprises, as some posts that fell off the radar years ago have risen again in odd popularity, and I still don’t know why some get an exorbitant amount of hits while others fade.
Previous Top 11 hits are linked here.
We dropped two ranking posts from The List this year. Both had to do with unusual date/time convergence singularities, and other than that had little long-term content that would interest the average viewer to deserve inclusion.
10/10/10 10:10:10 and 10:11:10 11/10/11 are hereby relegated to the sub-category of Inexplicable Honorable Mentions.
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 2016). “NR” indicates Not Ranked.

And the Number One Post for the past 12 months is:
MEET THE BEETLES
“Meet The Beetles” was a dark horse with a score of 1/10/31. Posted in July of 2011, it was running second to Bosley The Ferret for most of this year, but in the past couple of weeks it jumped into the lead, surpassing Bosley by only a few hundred hits. (I never thought that post would be much of an attention getter by itself, so I collected them all and created a .gif animation. It’s floating around No.77.)
