Review of 2016 Loughborough blogposts

I'm sure you have much more interesting things to do on New Year's Eve than visit my Loughborough blog, but I'm having a look through my posts for 2016, and seeing which ones you seemed to like the most!!

I didn't manage to blog weekly - there are distinct gaps in my postings when I was on holiday and when we went off to celebrate our first year of marriage, or when I was under-the-weather - but nonetheless, there are 43 posts to sift through!!

Here are the most popular ones:

In 1st place, with 1103 views, making it the most popular post of 2016, is:
From 54 Baxter Gate to 1 Old Hospital Way

2nd place, with 1014 views is:
Red and green houses abandoned in favour of a picnic

3rd place, with 965 views, goes to:
Loughborough Union workhouse

Coming in at 4th place, with 947 views, is:
Red white or green maybe

5th place, with 920 views, is:
Coffee houses to coffee shops

In 6th place, with 910 views, is:
Loughborough and the holiday connections

Coming in at 7th place, with 875 views, is:

Bradgate Park

8th place, with 822 views, goes to:
Birthday celebrations

In 9th place, with 797 views, is:
From Loughborough to Melbourne and back again via

10th place, with 779 views, is:
Investigating the Victorians leads to Messengers

The 11th most popular post, with 77 views, is:
George Hodson and the Loughborough Union workhouse

In 12th place, with 742 views, we find:
Leicestershire County Council green plaque scheme

And in 13th place, with 739 views, is:
Obelisks everywhere

Sadly, Victorian House Plaques, Tucker's, and William Railton's Bavarian Gates, are languishing at the bottom of the popularity table!

If I had to choose my favourite blog post, I think I'd probably go for one of the posts about connections from other places, to Loughborough - maybe Tiverton - or some of those coincidences that seem to happen on a regular basis - like obelisks - or any of the posts on cinemas or pubs!!

I've also posted a few virtual walks - hoping to do more next year. Here's the popularity chart:

1st - Loughborough, Luddites and lace walking trail (1000 views)
2nd - Loughborough sculpture, art and architecture trail (973 views)
3rd - Loughborough Zeppelin trail (784 views)

Anyway, must away and celebrate the start of a new year! Enjoy your own celebrations, and see you next year!
