Top Posts – 2012 Wrap-up

Well, there you have it. One year ago today, I began my commitment to post twice a week for a year, and (with two exceptions) I’ve done just that. Not patting myself on the back, though. I wanted to see if I could exercise my writing muscle consistently, and I’m just relieved that I was able to make it.

Let’s do a quick review and wrap-up, shall we?

Here are the top five posts from the last three months:

  • All Glory is Fleeting – Things change, and those that are on the top of the heap today won’t stay there forever. They’ll topple sooner than you think.
  • Time to Say No – Quickly identify the things that you shouldn’t be doing, so you have time for the things that you must be doing.
  • Loyalty – A deep dive into the meaning of loyalty.


Here are the top eight posts for the year:

  • Meandering Into Adulthood – By a huge margin, this has been the most popular post of the year. What do you think that says about all five of you?
  • Kick the Ends Out – The value of a life doesn’t need artificial bookends. Start doing the awesome stuff early and never stop.


The top Quick Hits post of the year was made on November 29. The least viewed Quick Hits post was posted on January 12.


Finally, here are three posts that I think could see a little more love:


Expect a Quick Hits tomorrow, and then I plan to go off the schedule for a month. More on that later.

Thanks for reading!

Top Posts – Third Quarter 2012

Only three more months to go in 2012. Since the last time we did this, I went to Nashville and got trained as a financial coach by some seriously talented people. We started a new round of FPU (It’s only 9 weeks now, you should check it out). I took a week off for vacation, and now we’re back to your regularly scheduled blog.

Here are the top five posts from the last three months:

  • Kick the Ends Out – The two most irresponsible concepts propagated in the modern era.

Top Posts – Second Quarter 2012

Halfway through 2012. I’ve only missed one week since the start of the year, and that was because my house was under quarantine. Not bad, maybe I’ll grow up to be a half-decent blogger one day.

I’ve got a lot of exciting things in the works, so the next six months should be interesting. I’ll be doing my best to share it all here with the six of you as it happens.

For now here’s the list of the top five posts since the last time we did this:

100 Posts

[image removed]

This is my hundredth post to A Bodey in Motion, since I started it just over two years ago.

Now, I’m not saying that 100 posts in two years is a big deal, and I didn’t want to cheat and take up today’s regular post with it, but I felt the milestone deserved a some small attention. So, to mark the occasion, I want to highlight just 10% what I’ve written here thus far. These are the ten posts that I really enjoyed writing, that got almost no attention from those five of you who regularly read here. Including my mom.

  1. Poke the Box – My review of Seth Godin’s book of the same name. I probably didn’t do it justice, but it was one of the best books I read last year.
  2. Two Ways [To] Have a Stronger Marriage – Apparently I’m a horrible editor. No wonder this one hardly got any traction. You should still read it.
  3. Small Cups and Broad Saucers – How the symbolism of the Havdalah service can instruct us how to be more generous. Don’t miss this.
  4. On Offers and Promises – Don’t offer free wifi if you can’t provide good wifi service…and what that means to the rest of us.
  5. Flipping the Numbers – Could you afford to give away what you normally save? How about the other way around?
  6. The Most Frightening Book in the Bible – It’s probably not the one you think it is.
  7. The Prodigal God – My review of Tim Keller’s book of the same name. It delves into the parable of the Prodigal Son, which we all can learn a thing or two from.
  8. If I Had A Million Dollars – What would you do if you received a million dollars, and what would you say if I told you we all do?
  9. It Isn’t Really For Free – Everything has a cost, and not recognizing that can have some very bad outcomes.
  10. 57 Channels and Nothing On – How our television quietly went away, and how it affected our home.

Thanks for joining me for the experiment, and I hope you’ll stick around for the next 100. Your regularly scheduled post will be up around noon, as usual.
