this is my most popular post??

Fabio

In the year or so since I’ve been on orgtheory, I’ve written about 170 posts. That’s about 3-4 a week. I wondered which of these posts has been the most popular. You might think it was my recent tirade against sociology’s bad public image (about 300 hits), or my reservations about freakonomics (over 500 hits), or maybe one of my grad school advice posts (about 100 hits each). You’d be wrong. Very wrong.

It seems the most popular post is “doll fight,” which is about dispute between the companies that make the Barbie and Bratz dolls. The post has pulled in over 800 hits since I wrote it in December. It’s garners about 15-20 daily hits and is often in the day’s top five orgtheory posts. By the end of August, it’ll probably hit 1,000 readers. Strangely, as of this writing, it’s today’s second most popular post, after Teppo’s discussion of social networks and obesity. It’s the energizer bunny of posts. Never has a big day with hundreds of hits, but every day, about a dozen people click it. I’m confused yet, pleased. So will my legacy on the internet be a post about the superiority of the Bratz doll collection?

PS. Check out my new book: From Black Power to Black Studies – How a Radical Social Movement Became an Academic Discipline. Make this the most popular link!

  1. Can you give the grad school advice posts their own tag so they are easier to find?
    Thanks!

  3. A tip from a former Web usability consultant: move “grad skool rulz” from “About Us” to “Categories.”
