That’s a boiled dog prepped and ready for sale in a small market in Nanning, China. Apparently, it offended western sensibilities enough to make a related post the most visited on this blog in 2010.
Team WordPress sent out a Your 2010 year in blogging report on New Year’s Day, complete with a Blog-Health-o-Meter attached. I hardly agree with their ‘Wow’ assessment, but I did appreciate the courtesy. And it did make me take a closer look at what transpired here over the past 12 months.
With just 78 posts, 2010 wasn’t nearly as active here as I would have liked. Life gets in the way. Nonetheless, a quick analysis:
I made four visits to Asia last year, and it was good to see that posts related to those trips made up half of the 2010 top-10. I regularly travel through Europe’s biggest cities, all of which are starting to look more and more alike. So it was a welcome gust of fresh air to bebop about northern Vietnam for a few weeks and savor the charm of an unparalleled city like Hanoi. I’m still organizing notes and photos from that October visit to Vietnam and Nanning, China, for a few projects so there is more to come from there.
5. Tito on Stamps
The former Yugoslav leader’s cult of personality on postage stamps. Considering the time it took to scan all the stamps, this post was the most time consuming, so THANKS for checking it out!
