Interesting milestone for Vaguely Familiar

It’s been one of those irritating little stats that I haven’t been able to do anything about:  for as long as I’ve been keeping stats on this blog, the most popular entry is the one titled “How to Insult People.”   And it wasn’t even good.  Seth Godin had written something about how stupid Dunkin Donuts is (apparently a recurring theme for him), and I picked up the story and did a little blurb on top of his.  Nothing profound or even funny, and it shouldn’t really have done anything or gone anywhere.  Geez, it wasn’t even my idea!

Enter google.

It turned out that the trackback to Seth’s page generated enough traffic for this particular post to start scoring pretty high on google searches about “how to insult people,” and that phrase is unfourtunately searched a lot.  So this blog which I intended to be about church and leadership and incarnation and other profound things has as it’s number one post a knockoff dud with a catchy title.

Until yesterday.

The news:  yesterday the “How to Insult People” post had to bow to the new number 1:  The Smartboard.  Still not exactly what I want to be remembered for, but if the comments are any indication of value, it’s been one of the more useful online things I’ve ever done.  

Long live the king.
