The Murky Pond In 2016

Not that I’m complaining in any way – traffic is, after all, traffic, but there’s an obvious trend appearing. 23 out of 25 of the top posts are in some way fundamentally prurient in nature and only one was primarily political, “Molon Labe.” 😆

Perhaps I should change the blog’s tagline from “The eclectic ramblings of jonolan” to “Come for the babes, stay for the social commentary and politics.” That might sum up the reality better.

Of course, one could easily argue that the prurient content is, in and of itself, a form of social commentary. This is even more true in Reflections From A Murky Pond since I quite often use sexually subjective images to further a point through example and/or depiction.

Again though, I’m not complaining. I’m just shaking my head a little at the current reality of the internet. After all, it is still likely that the most viewed posts on the internet are prurient in nature. They may not be “pornographic” depending upon any individual’s or groups’ definition of pornography, but they’re still quite prurient.

So there you have it – a break down of sorts of the popularity of Reflections From A Murky Pond over the course of 2016.
