The most popular Random Pixels posts of 2011
Here a list of the top five most popular posts on Random Pixels this past year.
A throw-away line on a friend's Facebook status update was the inspiration for "Trying to keep clean in Miami." It's the year's most popular post - and the most popular post ever - on Random Pixels.
"Sarah Palin / Glen Rice sex story divides Miami Herald newsroom." Leaked emails from Miami Herald reporters offered an interesting glimpse at sharp differences of opinion that erupted in the newsroom over a Herald story about a decades-old sexual tryst Sarah Palin allegedly had with former Miami Heat player Glenn Rice.
Adding an old video of Sarah Palin from back in the day helped make "Glen Rice says he had sex with Sarah Palin in 1987" the number three most-viewed post this year on Random Pixels.
While doing research for another post last week, I stumbled upon some glaring examples of outright plagiarism on Huffington Post's Miami page.
The resulting post - "Is Huffington Post Miami guilty of theft?" - is less than a week old, but it's already the number four most-viewed post on my blog this year thanks to a link on Jim Romenesko's blog and over 100 Tweets and re-tweets.
Nathan Gibbs, a blogger at PBS.org's MediaShift called my post a "must read."
Back in October, I posted a list of Miami-Dade County employees who received lay-off notices. It was the fifth most-viewed post on Random Pixels this year.
