2020 Top 10 Posts

Each December of the life of this blog, I post a list of the ten posts composed over the year that received the highest views. 

Because of the global pandemic, many of my posts posted this year focus on SARS-CoV-2 (the virus) and COVID-19 (the disease). 

Four of the ten posts in this year's Top 10 do come from topics more typical for my blog: three book reviews regarding aging and one preview for a conference on aging. 

Here is the list in descending order of views (most viewed first): 

1. Virtual MAIA Every Thursday in August. 23 June 2020.  LINK

2. Podcasts about COVID-19. 1 July 2020.  (and SARS-CoV-2). LINK

3. Books about Epidemics and Pandemics.  31 May 2020. LINK

4. Coronavirus, Ageism, Ableism and More. 1 March 2020.  LINK

5. This Chair Rocks: Book Review. 7 January 2020.  LINK

6. MacKay's Swiss Cheese Virus Defense. 31 October 2020.  LINK

7. Settings that Heighten Risk for SARS-CoV-2 Transmission. 12 June 2020. LINK

Posts by KDA hosted by Segullah

 


Sometimes I want to find a post published on the blog Segullah, and there isn't an easy way for me to search for posts by authors.  I must note that there are several writers who are more gifted than I am.  

Many of the women who write for Segullah write with greater lyricism, insight, and spirit.  

Nevertheless, sometimes I want to reread one of my posts there (to witness to my own better angels). I often give myself great advice; now if I would only follow it consistently. 

Segullah is a faith-based blog where women often write in a way that blends details from their daily lives with quotes or allusions to scriptures and other devotional writing as well to references to literature and culture--high culture and low culture.  

So a Segullah post may refer to Jesus, Jane Austin, burnt cookies, and Lisa Simpson. 

 

My favorite 2020 post was the one published in October.
