Most Beautiful: I have to pick the long drawn out telling of Finn's birth story for this category, and the last chapter specifically.
Most Popular: As far as page views go, (many thanks to Pinterest), the reveal of Finn's nursery is the most popular post here by far:
Tied with that post for the most comments though, is the announcement of his arrival:
Most Controversial: I don't tend to be the most controversial blogger, although I do get a mean comment every now and then just like everyone else. If there's anything that will get people worked up though, it's breastfeeding, and I was surprised that someone out there found my post on the subject to have an "undertone of condemnation". There were lots of others who found it helpful though, so you won't find me shutting up about my boobs anytime soon ;)
Most Helpful: Judging by the comments and emails on the subject, it's my two cloth diaper posts.
Post Whose Success Surprised Me: A year and a half later, and this is still one of my most popular posts. You wouldn't believe the number of people who find my blog by googling "river rock shower tile" and land on this post about our master bathroom renovation.
Post That Didn't Get the Attention it Deserved: This is just silly, but I spent a stupid amount of time working on our Halloween costumes last year and got only four comments on that post. Just not a lot of love out there for homemade puffy paint sweatshirts?
Wildcard: I'm adding in this bonus category. You know you've been reading my blog for a long time if you remember this one: corn knobs.
