It’s time for my annual list where I review the Top 10 Bullseye Blog posts and rank them in order of how much they appeal to me. Here goes:
#10: “Happy Holidays, from Bullseye” by Heather B. This one is ranked dead last simply because it makes my jawline look like Howdy Doody when I’m clearly more of a Charlie McCarthy type.
#9: “spacious thought” by Peter N. It just freaked me out. Who is this Tom Waits guy and why has he invaded my nightmares?
#8: “Office Art” by Jamie M. It doesn’t work. I’ve stared at this thing for hours now (I know, right?) and all I occasionally see is a slice of pie and a Twinkie. Maybe I shouldn’t be reading blogs on an empty stomach.
#7: “Pumpkin Carving” by Rick P. This one didn’t make me look too bad, but that’s only because it DIDN’T EVEN INCLUDE ME. Jeez! I swear, do I even work at this place? (sometimes I wonder).
#6: “iPhone Dragon Diction Review” by Travis K. I didn’t actually read this one. And based on the low number of comments, neither did anyone else.
#5 (tie): “Social Media Magic” by Jamie M. and “Customer Persona Development” by Travis K. These are both good stuff, but they are basically thinly veiled advertisements for Bullseye. So, to play “impartial judge” I placed both of these squarely in the middle of the pack.
#4: “iPhone Task Management App Review” by Travis K. A solid review, and most of the words are spelled correctly.
#3: “My Life in Technicolor, Photoshop Tutorial” by Rick P. It’s a long blog entry, so I haven’t read it. But I hear it’s good. [editor's note: this post was removed since it actually sucked. I finally read it and found it offensive and distasteful.]
#2: “Decade in Review: Zeitgeist Art” by Rick P. This is pretty amazing. Although, I was never sure what Rick was working on all of those hours, I now see it’s a really cool summary of the past decade, one which no one will actually read (I only made it to 2003 before I started to just scan the rest).
#1: “Top 10 Bullseye Blog Posts of 2009″ by Peter K. Pure brilliance. Total originality. When was the last time you read a Top 10 list on a blog? And at this time of year, no less.
