Best of the year: OOM’s top 5 posts of 2010
By Ivy on December 30th, 2010
The year isn’t over yet! We’re still on the nostalgia train as we look back on a wOOMderful year of blog posts. So far on our trip down memory lane, we’ve shared our favorite readers’ comments, our favorite 5 Questions videos, and our personal favorites. But what would we be if we didn’t look back on the most popular posts of the year? For these posts, we have you (our readers) to thank! Without you, we’d just be a bunch of words on the internet.
Without further ado *drum roll please* I give you the countdown of the five most-viewed OOM posts of the year!
5.) Scholastic’s 10 trends in children’s books for 2010 - Much like this post, OOM readers can’t get enough of year-end roundups! This trends piece was created by our editors from Scholastic Book Clubs and Scholastic Book Fairs. I can’t wait to see how the list will look at the end of 2011!
4.) The Decade’s 10 Big Ideas in Education – See what I mean? It’s another year-end trends story. Although this blog post was published in December of 2009, views this year have surpassed views of many other posts published in 2010! We’re particularly proud of this piece and I’d be lying if I said we weren’t excited that Valerie Strauss from The Washington Post mentioned these Big Ideas in her blog The Answer Sheet!
3.) A new Harry Potter experience for a new generation of readers – This blog post was about Harry Potter. Need I say more? When Scholastic first published Harry Potter, OOM didn’t exist. So when we published this piece, we were so happy to see how huge of a response it got. It meant that OOM readers were fans of Harry. What more could we ask for?
2.) The 39 Clues book 9 and 10 covers revealed! – Aside from trends pieces, OOM readers like cover reveals! And so do we. We’re always giddy about sharing a new cover and it takes an OOM blogger with steady hands to write the post before hitting “Publish.”
1.) Hunger Games Book 3 Cover Revealed! - Cheesy bread fans rejoice! This wasn’t just a blog post about a cover. It was a blog post about the cover. The OOM team isn’t shy about expressing our love for all things Hunger Games, and neither are our readers. It’s no surprise this post got so many views and OOM was the official place to see it! Of course, we’re also fans of the many other covers from the series.
Was there a post you thought should have been in the top 5? Let us know in the comments. Happy (early) New Year, readers!
