2011 Self-Hating Superlatives

3 Jan

Right before midnight on New Years Eve, while I was still plugging away at my Top 11 Albums article, I received an email from wordpress.com outlining some of the site’s statistics in 2011.  I’m proud to say that in the first six months we had almost 5,000 views, we published a combined 129 articles and, believe or not, we’ve had visits from readers on the six inhabited continents: North America, South America, Africa, Europe, Asia and Australia.  When I first started the site, I knew that I couldn’t do anything by myself.  So, I solicited some of my gifted (and opinionated) friends to write.  I want to thank all of you who have contributed this year and I hope that you stay interested and active in 2012.

What wordpress didn’t do was highlight the major players on The Self-Hating Hipster this year and so I thought I owed it to my friends who were extremely dedicated to posting, collaborating with me (i.e. putting up with my bullshit) and ready to offer creative criticism despite how busy they are.  These bombastic posters have made the site 10 times more popular than I could have done on my own.  With my own lame self out of the equation the 2011 superlatives are as follows…


Most Posts

Marena – 21 posts

Runners Up

Andee – 16 posts

Joey – 10 posts


Most Words

Marena – 12,066 words (which is about a quarter of on average novel’s word count)

Runners Up

Andee – 9,495 words

Joey – 4,009 words


Most Visited

Andee – “Escape from the Zooey” had 70 views in 2011

Runner Up

Marena – “Why Rihann Rules” had 58 views in 2011


Most Commented

Marena (starting to see a trend here,…although she does start a lot of shit about Rihanna)

Runners Up

Cory – He should really get the When He Speaks, People Listen award.  All he has to do is mention Robot Mix and urrybody’s excited.


Most Improved

Joey – It’s amazing what a man can do when he’s finished with school.  To be fair, Joeboy was working full-time and going to school for the past three months.  I’ve received five articles from him in the past week.


Most Traffic

Andee – He can get 25-75 views a day seemingly at will.  Case in point, Andee almost single-handedly made today the most active day in SHH history.  There are almost two hours left!


Most Potential

Bob Does – Keep “Too Hip Harry” alive, sen.


I thank everyone that posted, offered criticism or made referrals in 2011.  I would like to make it abundantly clear that credit is due and I am heavily indebted.  Thanks, guys!
