Top 5 Posts of 2016

Happy New Years Eve 2016!
I am sorry that the holidays have been very slow for the blogging, it has been hectic and overwhelming.  There are lots of great things to look forward to in ‘017, and it should be a fantastic year for the Green Onion Blog.

I am not one of those people disgruntled with this year.  Yes, we lost many heroes and the worlds politics are in shambles.  But, many heroes still stand to fight another day and our united upset with unfortunate events make us stronger moving forward.  I am happy with 2016, it is the birth year of this blog that will hopefully live a long and prosperous life.

To celebrate the year, I thought I would share some of the most popular posts through out the 2016 rookie year.  Let us take a look at what people loved in ‘016…

5. The 10 Scariest Things on Earth

This was one of my personal favorites.  As a bonus post leading up to Halloween and the November hiatus of The Green Onion Blog, I posted this silly little list.  The results were funnier than anticipated and the reception was wonderful.  Still one of my top recommendations for friends new to reading the blog.

4. Prince of Thorns by Mark Lawrence (review)

When I wrote the review of this dark and twisted novel I had no idea that one of the biggest names in fantasy would read it.  Not only that, but he shared it on his own social media which exploded its views and clicks.  That was a pretty special moment in my young blogging career and a validating experience.  Although, now I am psyched out of reviewing the next book, knowing there is a probability of Mr. Lawrence reading it.

3. Top 10 Fictional Queens

The sleeper post.  Inspired by the wonderful Grandmothers in my children’s lives, this was a top 10 list of the greatest Queens in pop culture.  What began as an average post the numbers have continued to trickle in and slowly this post has moved to the third most viewed in Green Onion Blog history.

2. The Little Boy or Girl who Lost Their Name a Personalized Children’s Book

Freshly posted in early December, I had no idea how excited people would be about this one.  The best part about this post was hearing other peoples unique experiences with these books.

1. Top 10 Speedsters

Way back in June when the blog was still a baby, this was the first Top 10 to set off a series that has grown and grown.  People loved this post and it has been shared on many websites and blogs across the internet.  Still to this day, this post collects views from who knows where.  I appreciate the love and support I have gained through put this year.

Thanks booknerds, you are amazing support and friends.  I love you all.

  3. I am your new follower and I loved the list … checked out the scariest list and you nailed it ( didn’t know whether to smile in disbelief coz those were precisely my arguments or just admire your genius). The queen list too was cool . Looking forward to many more . Happy 2017!
