Ramblings | 2010 Year In Review

Big Dan's RamblingsIt has been a great year for us here at Big Dan’s Ramblings.  I started publishing posts in May of this year and have seen a fairly steady increase of hits every week.  The posts ranged everywhere from recipes to product reviews to a stretch where we were updating almost daily on Red Sox news.  Over this time, I have slowly started to find my voice and figure out where I want to take this blog.  It is still a work in progress, but we’re getting there.

Next year, I am committing myself to posting at least one unique post every week in addition to a weekly wrap-up post.  The goal is to build a regular readership here that will grow into a fairly regular blog.

As a unique kind of review, here’s a list of the top five BDR posts from 2011 based upon the number of views each one received. Read more of this post

The Week In Rewind | 12-Dec-2010

– Red Sox fans rejoiced as the hometown club introduced their new hard-hitting first baseman, Adrian Gonzalez, on Monday.  The Sox were able to acquire Gonzalez’s hot bat and nearly perfect glove from the San Diego Padres for a handful of prospects.

– The much-awaited showdown between the New England Patriots and the New York Jets took place on Monday night with not much more than a whimper from the much ballyhooed* Jets.  The Pats won handily, 45-3, solidifying their spot atop the AFC East and gaining and inside track to home field advantage during the playoffs.

– I’m a Dunkin Donuts kind of guy, but many of you will be interested in how Lifehacker.com tells us how to Hack Starbucks for Cheaper Coffee.

– Not much else going here this week.  It’s just one of those slow weeks where you’re busy, but nothing major happens.  This weekend was spent going to a first birthday party for a friend’s son on Saturday and then cooking up a bunch of pasta, homemade sauce, and ricotta meatballs for a big Italian dinner on Sunday night.

Best wishes for a great week next week everyone!

*I’ve always wanted to use the word ballyhooed in a blog post.
