Not dead, just dead busy

I wanted to pop in for a moment to let everyone know that I’m not dead, nor did my IKEA bookcase finally collapse on top of me. I’ve just been very busy with freelance work, which is good because I can afford to buy bread and fruit and Sherlock DVDs, but also a little nerve-racking because OMG WHY DID I TAKE ON THIS MUCH WORK?!

To tide you over, I was going to post a list of the most popular entries on the blog generated by the WordPress Popular Posts plugin I installed a few months ago. Then I discovered what the most popular post on this site is, for the past week, the past month, and of all time.

Get your not-safe-for-work answer after the jump.

The most popular post on this blog is none other than The Joy of Cooking, an entry that proves that sex sells:

Yes, those are vagina-shaped muff-ins that I made for a friend who was performing in The Vagina Monologues. The post that features them is more popular than my weight loss page and even my archives. It also seems to suggest that I need to chuck this whole personal-blogging thing and start a blog about erotic baking.

I work on a autos website, and sadly admit now that a photo of a pretty girl, or the words ‘sex,’ ‘topless’ (i.e. convertibles) etc. do good things for my page view count. I wonder if I can work the word ‘vagina’ in there somehow?

“Fine. We’ll start with the riding crop.”

Okay, PQ, please ask everyone to stop giving me That Look. It’s a quote, guys. From a TV show. And from one on PBS, at that.

I saw the image before I read the text, and my first thought was “Gosh, I wonder if she realises those cakes look like vulvas”. So, good bakin’.

Um, yum? Not. haha I just came here to log in to AMAZON through your website to help send a few more pennies your way. I try to remember to do that every time, and I’m on there a bit more with Christmas on it’s way.

Glad to hear you have plenty of work.

Jennette – I never saw the original post, but I find the popularity of the muff-ins hilarious. It’s been awhile since I’ve been so amused by the common side of human nature.
On a more practical note. I read a previous comment. Is it true that if I do my amazon.com shopping after using links from your blog, you get some much needed funding towards more Ikea furniture?

@Chrissy – Thank you so much for clicking through my Amazon links! I really appreciate it.

@Lisa – Yep, if you click on one of my links and then put something in your cart I get a small commission when you buy it. However, if the item is already in your cart when you click on my link, I don’t get any commission.

That post was one of the first ones I read way back when I started following you. Thanks for all the memories from then til now!
