My Top 10 Posts of 2010


Some I saw coming but others I must say caught me by surprise. The top 10 posts of 2010 are interesting reflections of me: eclectic, serious, fun, and honest.  In August I changed platforms from Blogger into self-hosted WordPress, did a major face lift, and began posting every day. The results were significant: traffic jumped 10 times what it was earlier this year and commenting and interactivity also spiked. I have gotten to know some new friends who are stopping by on a regular basis, and I feel more a sense of community building with each post. These posts reflect reactions and thoughts of events, ideas and lessons I’m facing daily. I usually write them after a full day of meetings, ideas and conversations. There’s always a nugget of truth, a funny story or something that drives me crazy during my day that makes its way into a post. I hope you’re enjoying reading them as much as I am writing.

Hipster vs Polyester Christianity and the Cultural Trap This post was a response to Brett McCracken’s  book “Hipster Christianity” . It hit a nerve and it drove the highest daily traffic of any post.

Looking Sharp in a Vest I started Fashion Friday as a joke. It has turned out one of the most widely read features. Who knew?

Narcissism, Social Media, Christianity and Me Very introspective look at our motivation in social media.

Fashion Friday Dilemma: Pleats or No Pleats? I had no idea pleats would be so popular and controversial. America is the last frontier for the pleated pants.

What Social Media Will Never Do For You Even the best of tools have limitations. Social media fails when we try to miss use it.

Really, Really Bad Church Signs The title says it all.

Self Discipline Is Not Enough: How I Get My Butt Out of Bed at 4 AM People have asked how I’m up so early most mornings. I answer it in this post.

Yet Another Reason Men Need Women As if we needed more reasons. Here’s another one.

How Men Should Wear a Scarf It’s amazing how many men don’t know how to tie or wear a scarf. Wonder no more.

Bad, Really Bad Church Signs, Part II If you liked Part I, you’ll love this one.

What was your favorite post of 2010? Did it make the top 10?

  • Pleased to see Scarves made the list – a personal favorite of mine – a fashion Friday post even a woman could use!
    To knot or not to knot – mystery solved.
    Happy New Year!

    • I knew you'd be pleased that the scarf post made it. 🙂

  • Gretchen Davis

    I started reading your blog with the "Hipster Christianity" post. I love it so much that I started following the blog and have not been disappointed. Thanks for sharing your heart with us.

    • Thanks for the kind words, Gretchen. Glad you're enjoying the posts.

  • Joseph

    There are many posts I really liked but the Vest one was one of my favorites…not sure why, but I just liked it.

    • so, after reading the vest post, are you wearing them more?

      • trying…sweater vests to start 🙂

        • Well, sweater vests are more sweater than vests. Be bold and rock the vest. It's a new year.

  • todshuttleworth

    There results are completely expected. The vast majority are style posts that only a metrosexual could construct.

    • Tod, I know you're a closeted Fashion Friday reader.

      • todshuttleworth

        Yes, I am. I want to see how the other half lives. And, what a guy like me should avoid wearing. 😉 When are you going to do one on hair style? Need to know where I fit in.

  • Maurilio, you helped me look at pleats in a brand new way. For that, I thank you.
