Due to the wonders of Facebook (and if you're on FB and not a member of our YesButNoButYes group, why not?) I now get prompted to remember the birthdays of everyone on my friends list. Which is why I happen to know that TOMORROW IS MISS CELLANIA'S BIRTHDAY!!! YAY!!
And so in honor of this little landmark, I thought it'd be fun to look back over the ten most popular stories she's every written, as judged by Google Analytics. Along the way, we're going to learn just how much she knows about porn stars, and just how depraved our audience really is.
(After all she posts several stories every day, it's you guys who seem to love one particular type of story.)
Kicking off at the top, we have one in our series of Lunch Hour Veg stories, where we feature YouTube clips all based around a theme of the day. And back on XXXXX she ran her most popular one ever, all about Sex Education. Let's take foreplay as read, shall we?
#9 - Star Wars Porn
Ahhh "Star Wars Porn". I'll say it again "Star Wars Porn". If ever a blog title had 'google juice', it's that one. I mean, it's almost the perfect combination for geeks everywhere.
#8 - Alpha Male
If it's one thing we've learnt at YBNBY over the last couple of years, it's that after bouncing boobs, the thing you all seem to like the most is people really trying to hurt themselves. Here's a guy who makes a living making it look much easier than it really is.
The first of two posts that seemed to be aimed at showing the world that everything the rest of the World thinks about Americans is possibly true. And as an Englishman in New York, I really don't have a problem with that (actually, the same could probably be said of the whole of our content at YesButNoButYes. Go figure)
Judging by the comments on this story, it looks like this was the story that finally gained our site a firm foothold in the Islamic world. I wonder what they all thought of the next five stories.
And so we start to slide down the slippery pole, with the first of a whole series of posts that have probably earned Miss C the bulk of her following (and her Adsense revenue). A look back at the porn stars of yesteryear.
Like me, Miss C was but a slip of a girl in the 70s (err - I was young, not a girl), and probably just remembers the true aura around a lot of those 70s bands that attracted professional groupies. Something tells me OK GO are never going to inspire this kind of sexual frenzy.
If it's one thing that Hollywood has taught us, by the time you get to the third in a series, you're probably running out of steam, but not so Miss C, who brought us yet another roundup of Porn Stars.
One of the best parts of YesButNoButyes is not what we write, it's what you write in the comments. Without getting all mushy on you,it really makes it feel worthwhile when one of us writes a story that gets a lot of feedback. And Miss C got SO much feedback on her pornstars stories, she actually got a whole post out of it. Now that's what I call giving readers what they want.
And finally, the granddaddy of them all that kicked it all off, as read by over 156,000 of you, Miss Cellania's most popular story of all time. Probably across all her sites, because I'm sure she doesn't write this kind of material for Mental Floss, Neatorama or her own blog. And this site is all the better for it. Happy Birthday, Miss C!
