Some of the readers at More Cowbell have hung out here since we were blogging babies together (back in 2011) and some have discovered the blog more recently. Regardless, I want to say thank you.

More Cowbell wouldn’t be half as much fun without every one of you. A recent review of the stats surprised me – the ten most popular posts here weren’t the ones I expected.

10 Posts with the Most Cowbell (aka “hits”)

#10 – When Pregnancy Becomes A Sticky Business

This is from the Risky Baby Business series. Some of us have to give ourselves shots and worry our brains out while pregnant. This post is for those ladies.

#9 – O is for OMG, A Disorder I Shouldn’t Laugh At (But Do)

Who know Oversized Male Genitalia was a thing? Or that a priest would consult on this hilarious guide.

#8 – (has that number in the title!) 8 Fun (Mostly True) Facts About Mondays

A self-explanatory post that helped me survive a hellacious Monday.

Anti Monkey Butt Powder_Amazon#7 – The Undie Chronicles: How To Avoid The Dreaded “Monkey Butt”

This was an interview with Laura Drake (who is a wonderful writer, and a friend of mine) where she shared Monkey-Butt-itis with me. There’s a special powder, and undies and everything.

#6 – Thundershirts For Humans–A Bazillion Dollar Idea

These should be invented for menopausal ladies and the parents of teenagers. That is all.

#5 – Writing 50,000 Inimitable Smiles by Margie Lawson

Fantastic post on writing by the incomparable Margie Lawson. She has a whole series over at Writers In the Storm too!

#4 – Why Do Pregnant Women Get SO Much Heartburn?

There is actually a reason for this, and it isn’t just a baby taking up all available space. If I had to learn all this stuff, I was certainly going to pass the gold on to all of you.

#3 – Ten Computer Phrases that Sound Dirty But Aren’t

Like you wouldn’t laugh if someone asked you about your “dongle.” Admit it, you so would.

#2 – 10 Creative Ways To Express Your “Inner F-Bomb”

My brother, the Bag Whore, won this category hands down (if you know what I mean). No one is better at creative swearing than he is. It’s a skill learned from having three children.

And the #1 MOST popular post… *drumroll*

Using The 12 Stages of Physical Intimacy To Build Tension In Your Novel

This post came from a talk given by Linda Howard, and it changed how I read and (especially) how I write. I’ve also heard it has changed marriages and dating habits…I’ll let you decide.

Wow. When I started this blogging thing, I wasn’t sure if people would even read ten of my posts. What a strange, fun, happy trip this has been. Thanks for coming along for the ride!

Do you remember any of these posts? Which was  your favorite? What was the best thing you’ve read or seen on the internet this week? Enquiring minds love to know these things here at More Cowbell!

    I’m sorry to say that I do not remember. But that really doesn’t mean anything because I can hardly remember my own posts. lol. Now that you mention it, I do want to read Linda Howard’s post readhttps://jennyhansenauthor.wordpress.com/2011/11/08/using-the-12-stages-of-physical-intimacy-to-build-tension-in-your-novel/. That’s sounds like just what I need right now.

    Why do I feel as if this is a Blogoversary of some sort? If so, Happy Blogoversary to you Jenny! Keep ’em coming!!! ((Hugs)) 🙂

      Karen, I hit the five year mark in April and was too mired in Kindergarten and work to commemorate it. I was poking around in the dashboard, cleaning some stuff up and it kind of hit me. 🙂

      I’m in the middle of the sixth year, which is crazy to me. Now that I’ve survived the transition to school and gotten my energy back up again, I’ve been going through and poking around.

      I have 45 posts sitting in Drafts! That just won’t do…


  5. I remember each and every one, Jenny. Here’s to the next top ten!

    I sold my cowbell on eBay and, thus, no longer feel qualified to comment.
