The most-viewed post ever on this blog

I keep two versions of the same blog on WordPress and Livejournal. Only rarely do I post something to one, but not both.

I noticed something in the WordPress “stats” today that I found interesting. By far the most-viewed posting in the history of this blog (not just at first, when I posted it, but on an ongoing basis) is my “SF Academy 1” post, or https://griffinwords.wordpress.com/2010/03/05/sf-academy-01-ringworld-by-larry-niven/

In it, I rather harshly criticized one of the beloved, classic works of 1970s SF. I feel a little bad for the negativity, especially as I doubted anybody would ever read the post. There must be a link to my post on Ringworld-is-Sooo-Overrated.com or something.

I stand by my appraisal of the prose shortcomings of that novel, and my puzzlement that the book is held in such high regard.
