Popular images, yearly

Here are the top seven images for each year, based on direct web traffic.

2000


I retroposted just a few things from 2000, one event was a backpacking trip.

2001


Once again, not much content from 2001, E3 (omg Gamecube!) and a Tahoe trip.

2002


E3 and skiing once again.

2003


2003 visits are dominated by mine and Rob's photos from the Cedar Fire.

2004


Getting a little more diversity here; E3, skiing, PB Block Party, and a Celica suspension change.

2005


E3 and some wheelies out in the canyons.

2006


In 2006 the retroposts end, I think my first photo was Ty playing Wii just after launch. A trip to Amago also got some clicks and check out that cool mp3 player.

2007


Jon managed to headshot himself from a punt rebounding off a tree and the diagram happily got some visits. There's also a smattering of events and car work.

2008


The renovations began in 2008: bare floors and big splashes.

2009


People like MS paint I guess, my unofficial Maui map somehow drew traffic. My stained/polished concrete floor how-to got some attention. The rest are assigments from photo class.

2010


2010 had some great Axis and Allies Anniversary Edition battles (that are pretty tough/boring to convey by blog/photo). Renovations and car work continued and it looks like a screenshot made the cut.

2011


2011 saw the original release of Skyrim and Valentino Rossi on a Ducati - I quite like my composite of Rossi, Marco Simoncelli, and Cal Crutchlow bombing down the 'Screw.

2012


Beer theme for traffic in 2012: the first Blind Lady Ale House Cape Run, homebrewing, and a visit to Lost Rhino in Virginia.

2013


Good balance for the 2013 hits: brewing, surfing, bike work, renovations, video games, and E3.

2014


My most successful night surfing trip dominates the 2014 traffic with some cute dog and toddler in there.

2015


Good year for video games. Borderlands, Far Cry, and Fallout. I guess renovations and weimaraners weren't as exciting.

2016


My Colonel Bliss boss battle was grabbed by a rando on Reddit so that got a bunch of clicks. Video game screenshots seem to have taken over with Witcher 3, Warframe, Helldivers, and Cities: Skylines drawing internet interest.

2017


Dying Light got the attention in 2017 with the ill-fated brawler Paragon sneaking in (at the time of this writing).

2018


I grabbed a couple screens from Altered Carbon and they got some taffic. So did Horizon Zero Dawn, Monster Hunter World, and photos from the Gloomhaven tabletop game.

2019


I have no idea why Viscera Cleanup Detail was my most popular image from 2019, but there you have it. Divinity, Barotrauma, Dying Light, and Payday join the video game fray with an original Risk of Rain 2 meme slotting in.

2020


My epic California/Vegas/Raiders theme fantasy avatar rightfully takes #1. What's better than a bear with a football and 40 surfing over, uhhh, Texas, Arizona, Zuck, Hortler, an AoE siege engine, confederate pride, and I'm not sure what else? Byleth and Edelgard represent Fire Emblem Three Houses while amazing moments from Divinity 2 and a napkin drawing of an autoencoder make the cut.

2021


Things moved away from video games in 2021 traffic and toward current events - namely the Boomerkrieg, the Ever Given incident, and the GME squeeze.

2022


Machine learning, Elden Ring, and veranda construction.

2023


A mildly-editorialized fantasy football trophy and some video editing.

2024

Games of the Decade: 2018 - Tales of the Aggronaut

We are getting towards the end now, two more years to go in this decade worth of gaming. I am finding it as I get more into "recent" history I am having way more trouble narrowing things down to a handful of games. For 2017, 2018 and 2019 I wound up with massive lists, I ... Read more
