Top Posts of 2010: Scars, Stars, Sex, Satire, Students, and Social Networking

According to my blog stats, these are Unmuzzled Thoughts‘s 20 most visited posts of 2010. They are listed in order, #1 scoring the most hits this year.

Looking at the posts collectively, I realize that some are not my favorite, some I should’ve worded differently, and some arguably should not have received as many hits as they did (e.g., “Weird Ohio”?!). However, together they do represent a nice spectrum of what this blog aims to do: 1) comment on the occasionally frustrating but always fascinating world of academia, and 2) critically examine trends, ideas, and themes in popular culture.

As always, many, many thanks to the thousands of readers who’ve read, commented, debated, and reblogged/retweeted my words. Until next year!
