Top Ten 2013 Visits

One might think this is just your average liberal Catholic troublemaking blog, given the traffic we have, and that we used to have.

The truth is that most of the people who visit these pages are, by far, planning weddings and funerals. They are not interested in church documents. Or tasty liturgical tidbits that draw a few comments here and there. Here are 2013’s most popular posts, with numbers of views:

Bible Readings For Your Wedding More stats 148,763
Bible Readings for a Funeral More stats 108,876
Home page / Archives More stats 86,046
Wedding Lectionary: Sirach 26:1-4, 13-16 More stats 19,049
Wedding Lectionary: Song of Songs 2:8-10, 14, 16a; 8:6-7a More stats 15,667
Wedding Lectionary: Genesis 2:18-24 More stats 14,739
Funeral Lectionary: Wisdom 3:1-9 More stats 11,391
Wedding Lectionary: Tobit 8:4b-9 More stats 10,060
Wedding Lectionary: Genesis 1:26-28, 31a More stats 8,931
Wedding Lectionary: 1 Corinthians 12-13 More stats 7,613

You get past weddings and funerals (and my home page/archives at number 3) you have to go to the 48th-most popular post to find something different: the Pastoral Care of the Sick page. The RCIA page made it to #50. The St Thomas Aquinas Novena checked in at #60.

The top non-liturgy post actually posted this year was “New Bishop for Rochester.” That was number 80. 1600 views for a rather short essay with some sparkling banter in the comboxes.

I could go through the WordPress dashboard and find out which 2013 posts were actually popular this past year. But time is short as 2013 closes out.

Meanwhile, brides and grooms and mourners: keep coming back.
