Just ran my Google Analytics for January 1, 2019 until December 30, 2019, and here we go. This is a periodically depressing exercise because I like to be known for writing about work, but usually some of the stuff that’s popular is not about work. But hey, I still created it, ya know? Go me. Let’s get to it →
- “The Rise of Kaley Cuoco:” This is popular because of the picture I used in the post. I actually think Big Bang Theory ended this year, so this is mildly ironic.
- “Transactional Analysis:” I wrote this on a plane back from Paris in February 2015 after reading a book by psychologist Eric Berne. It has long been a popular post for me. In early 2020, I am going to update it.
- “The six biggest cover your ass moves at work:” This is one of the snarkiest pieces of crap I’ve ever written. I hope you enjoy it.
- “Isn’t it time we were more open about sex?” Personally, I’d say “yes.”
- “News flash: A bunch of your sexual history will be transactional:” I guess people like reading about sex. Also, this was cross-linked once in a UK digital version of Vogue, I think.
- “If River Phoenix had never died…:” I wrote this one a long way back.
- “The bad attitude work myth:” What if there is no such thing as a bad employee?
- “What we really need is employee DISengagement:” This might be the first thing on this list that I actually wrote within 2019. It’s pretty good. It’s about how we over-focus on engagement, which means people need to be “always on,” and we should focus on letting our people live their lives too.
- “Company culture is not just listing core values:” Amen, sister.
- “The disappearance of Jeramy Carl Burt:” This is from the era where I wrote about true crime more.
If you’re scoring at home, the breakdown on these 10 is → three related to sex (including Cuoco), four related to work, one related to psychology, one related to entertainment, and one related to true crime. Seems like a good mashup of my own interests, minus sports, which I don’t write about that much anymore — and minus politics, which I’ll probably never write about again. #Modernity
Here’s to a good 2020, y’all. Keep on keeping on.
