Can you guess which of the more than 1,000 blog posts I wrote this year was the most-read? If you've been following my weekly comment round-ups, you may have a good idea, because it's also been by far the most commented on. It involves pinning a diagnosis on somebody, but it's not Jett Travolta (that post was #10) or Sheldon from The Big Bang Theory (#4). It involves reality show personalities, but it's not about Susan Boyle (#9) or Margie and Luke (#5). It involves a famous mom, but she's not Katherine Heigl (#2). And it's a subject that bugged a lot of people, but it's not head lice (#3). Whatever it was, it got more than five times the page views of the next-most-read 2009 post. Check my list of Top 10 Blog Posts of 2009 to find out what it was, and get a good picture of what we were reading about, arguing over, and smiling at during the year almost passed.
