The top ten blogs of A Pius Geek, April 2018

The posts that get hits on this blog astound me. They are mind boggling. I guess I shouldn't be surprised, but yeesh.

These are the all time most viewed blogs.

Dec 7, 2017

Considering the general use of the internet for porn, I guess I shouldn't be even moderately surprised that this is one of the most popular blogs. But come now, I'm not a consumer, and it boiled down to a rant about how politics murdered a girl.

The thing that confuses me about the popularity of this is there is nothing here that even remotely fits any definition of "sexy" that I can think of. On a blog that boils down to Catholic nerd writer stuff.

.... Unless you subscribe to the position that the newspaper motto "If it bleeds it leads" is "sexy."  That's what floats your boat, then ... nevermind.

This isn't too shocking. After all, it's 6 years old, going back to the Obama / Romney election. It's accumulated a lot of hits. I this one was probably carried more by Alex Ross art than anything else. But it's still going strong, having beeing bumped to the #2 spot.

This was fun. I was just going over the top and insane.

But here, Captain America punching Hitler in the face.

Can we have one of Captain America punching Osama in the face? Really. Pretty please?

I actually did one of these for 2016, though it wasn't nearly as popular.

This one has been in the top ten since I posted it.

This is so successful, I made this into a novel. 

Yes, it's a book now. Please, feel free to to buy it.

If you have no idea what SPBB is ... click here. It is a really, really, really long flipping story. It was a one-shot that spiraled so far out of control, I really didn't see the end of it. I was going to make one lousy parody of one insane bit of Facebook hoopla. 

Then it spiraled.

Ow. My spin hurts just looking at this.
This was a study of DC Comics and their mistreatment of two of their better female characters when the "New 52" came out. It includes, sex, sex, and more sex. And bad writing.  This is another one that shot to the top in short order. Probably because of, well, the sex involved.

The books had some serious issues, warping the character of Starfire to a bland, uninteresting, amnesiac Gumbi slut, and grinding out a Catwoman comic book with little to no plot, and bizarre artwork, written by a fellow whose creds were more LGBT than the Greenwich Village Halloween parade.

This is back when I thought there was still some slight hope with Marvel comics, before they just decided to go on a full-bore slippery slope of stupid. There were only slight hints of the oncoming train of SJW suck that were to come. Back then, I had just chalked it up to lousy writing and movie tie-in plots. It was when their biggest problems were "Let's make everything dark and stupid" and mindless "Let's have these fights because FIGHTS."

Seriously, WWE has better writing and storylines.

Granted, we're now at a point where we can look back at World War Hulk as Shakespeare compared to some of the current batch of stupid.

This one was so insanely popular, I don't even know where to start, to be honest. Within a week of being posted, it had already made it into in the top ten posts of all time.

And I did nothing special. At all. The hits all came from the usual sources: social media. That's it. It's like everyone descended on my blog for this one post. It happened so fast, it was like I had a Larry Correia review. And no, it wasn't shared all that often. Or at all. It's almost like people just tripped over it en mass.

I can get used to that.

The post was also nothing special. It was exactly what the title said it was. I took a character from my Love at First Bite series (starting with Honor at Stake, due to be rereleased from Silver Empire in May of 2018) and sketched out her life, from birth, to death, to her postmortem resume, through World War II, the Vatican, the CIA, the Cold War, to her various and sundry college degrees.

Aug 12, 2015

Another post that boiled down to "What you see is what you get" when it came to my vampire novels and the mythology I made behind it. It smashed together Bram Stoker, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Mass Effect, Aristotle and Thomas Aquinas into a blender and hit "liquefy."

Otherwise known as what you get when you take a nerdy philosophy major who likes taking his entire knowledge base and smashing them together to see what he gets as an end result... while also keeping the original Dracula and all of the rules that came with it.

Don't worry if the book links don't work, they will soon enough. Probably within 30 days

Apr 28, 2015

Still going strong. This is another one that's not really going away anytime soon.

Again, it's a parody, but it's a parody that had a lot of various backers.

Again, it's for sale. Sorry.

Jul 14, 2016

This one hit the top ten most popular posts on the blog within 24 hours of being posted.

This is what happens when authors like your reviews.

Who knew?

Apr 4, 2017

This has only recently hit the top ten all time. I don't know why. My best guess is that someone was looking for Hugo award nominees for this year, and tripped over this.

The sad thing is, I think we can safely say that this headline could be posted about this year's Hugos, and nothing would have changed any.

That's it. That's the best of the blog thus far. Again, who knew? Some of these aren't a surprise. And it's nice to see that some of it is stuff I put a lot of effort into.

Still odd.
