My top 25 blog posts of 2013

When I write a blog post I usually have no idea just how much (or how little) interest it will attract.

I am often surprised and especially by my top post of 2013 which has attracted almost 160,000 views and is still going strong.

During the year I posted 210 articles in total (including this one). 

Two of the top five (1, 5) are testimonies while the other three (2, 3, 4) deal with apologetics issues and were deliberately written to attract atheists.

Whilst I write more on abortion and euthanasia than anything else these topics generally attract fewer views unless they deal with extreme cases (6, 8, 11, 19, 20).

Blogs with the names of well-known people in the title (5, 7, 8, 10, 13, 15, 18) tend to draw a crowd but in fact eleven of my top 25, but only one of the top ten, deal with homosexuality in one way or another (10, 12, 13, 15, 16, 17, 18, 21, 22, 23, 25).

Here are the top 25 ranked by the number of page views.
