It is always interesting to look at the stats on this site and see what people were finding (and hopefully also reading).
These are the 3 top poems (and two informational posts) that got the most views in 2015. (The “Popular Reads Today” widget on the sidebar shows what people were reading most in the past 24 hours.)
- Her Royal Highness Princess Charlotte of Cambridge from May 2015 – a surprise to me but possibly bring in some of my UK readers
- The Ronka (about the form – I hope some readers are trying the form out with heir own poetry)
- The Pequod and the Rachel from March 2014 – I am a big Melville fan
- Trying the Ronka Form from February 2015 – Yes, try it.
- At the Beach with Sylvia Plath from January 2015
