So it’s understandable to be proud of those top posts, those crown jewels of the grimy keyboards of the world, but I think that’s what the top posts side-bar navigation menu and in-bound links are for. Statistically if you’ve done your job right people have either found one of your posts due to a misspelling or an in-bound link. In which case they are probably not amused to read a post about the difference between a lentil and a lintel (and hit back as quick as they can) or they are already at one of your top posts.
What more blogs need is a bottom posts post.
And no I don’t mean the advantages of aluminum railings or other construction related posts about actual posts. I mean a list of the blog’s lowest traffic posts. The clunkers, the laggards, the lonely, the neglected. I mean if someone wants to really get a feel for a blog’s potential then certainly a look in the bottom drawer might be worth the effort before bookmarking or other serious commitment.
So without further ado, here is a tabular post of bold lentil’s bottom ten posts going from ten to one where one is the bottom-most post.
Which kind of revealing in it’s own way. Bristol and one-liners don’t seem to pull much traffic. But you know other than the okra bag it’s not too bad of a bottom posts list – and even then don’t you get it, it’s a bag stamped with the word OKRA?
