What is “popular” is a funny thing. As we close out the year of 2019, I’m looking at back at the 10 most popular posts of 2019 in terms of traffic on Live and Let’s Fly.
The trend is clear: people like reading bad news. I guess it is not a surprise in our clickbait, Daily Mail culture, but the results are clear even beyond the top-10 list below. You’ll notice only one positive story out of ten (#9).
And I have to admit, that leads me to question why I spend so much time writing hotel reviews when so few people bother to read them and they take more time than even my flight reports. I have to remind myself that I actually write to myself first and foremost and that it must always be that way. That, I hope, is what sets this blog apart from the pack.
But without further ado, here are the ten most popular posts from 2019:
Kudos to Kyle for writing one day per week but taking four of ten spots. I always look forward to his content on Sundays and greatly appreciate both his presence and Carly’s on Live and Let’s Fly. Thanks also to 121pilot for his excellent contributions and insight over the year.
The lists are done. Tomorrow I’ll look back on 2019 a bit more, but more importantly look ahead to 2020. It’s been a tough year overall for me, but a great year of growth for the blog. Thanks to each and everyone of you for reading, even the trolls.
Here’s to more bad news in 2020, I suppose…?
