This year I have written 36 blog posts.
Tenth post was over ten years old, Chorizo Frito al Vino which was my thoughts on cooking Chorizo sausage in wine.
Ninth place was also about Chorizo, this was about Sainsbury’s Cooking Chorizo. Having used cooking chorizo from Tesco, Marks and Spencers and Sainsbury, I much prefer using the chorizo from Tesco or Marks and Spencers.
The eighth most popular post on the blog was about the Pret A Manger Italian Chicken Salad I had in 2013. I have had it quite few times since.
The number seven post was Beef and Mushroom Stew with Dumplings. The post had a lot of thoughts about mushrooms.
The sixth most popular post was not about just any pork medallions, but Marks and Spencers Pork Medallions.
My fifth post was about retro chocolate. How many of these can you remember? Which were your favourites?
Reminiscing about Newquay Steam Beer was the fourth most read post on the blog.
Climbing two places, the third most popular post was Basil & pine nut margherite, a simple pasta recipe.
Second most popular blog, having been top for two years was Sirloin for Beef Wellington? This was a response to the high ranking of another post about using sirloin steak in a Beef Wellington rather than fillet steak due to the way people were (at the time) searching Google.
In at number one Chilli Squid from Wagamama, maintaining it’s top position as the most popular post on the blog.. This post was one of the many on the blog about squid, however it is now quite old being from 2011.
So popularity appears to be dependent on older posts being found via Google searches.
