I installed a WordPress plugin a couple of years ago called Popularity Contest. It keeps track of all views, comments, ping backs and links and calculates a score for each post. I use it to populate that little highlights widget at the top of the page. Trouble is, the widget and I disagree on what is a good post.
By far, most visitors to my blog are searching for either Clown Sex or LOLMouse pictures and my favourite posts never get a look in so, last night, I rummaged through and tagged some of my favourite posts; usually posts that gave me a lot pleasure when I wrote them or that have special significance in my life.
When I get around to it, I’ll update the little widget thingie to cycle through my favourite posts so that new visitors, if they care to know what I am about, can skip over the dross.
