miss_s_b: DreamSheep/Matrix icon (DreamSheep: Matrix)
In the traditional top ten format (it may help if you hum Sign of the Swingin' Cymbal to yourself as you read):

  1. Lib Dem Leadership - the runners and riders. With added Star Trek metaphor! from the 27th of September. Predictably, many of the comments concentrate on the sci-fi rather than the Lib Demmery. But as (nearly) always on my blog, the comments are better than the post.

  2. I Hate It When Politicians Talk About "Hard-Working Families" (UPDATED) from August the 30th. A phrase which is coming out of Tory mouths much more than Lib Dem mouths these days, and I feel I can take some of the credit for that - me and the lovely Caron.

  3. Spotify Without Facebook an embarrassingly typo-ridden entry from the 10th of April. In which I ask people to add me to their Spotify f-lists the old-fashioned way.

  4. Questions for FCC and FPC candidates from the 9th of October. This is probably the thing I am proudest of doing all year. I can't take all the credit for it, by any means; a whole load of people on one of the Lib Dem email lists helped me with formulating questions, and obviously if nobody had answered it would have been a bit embarrassing. But I feel like I made a positive contribution to the internal democracy of the party, and I'm very glad of that.

  5. Chris Williamson MP: sadly misinformed, or a liar? from the 4th of June. In which I turn my ire on a Labour MP.

  6. Home Office Rape Campaign Goes Live from the 5th of March. In which I am full of praise for the awesome Lynne Featherstone.

  7. A Message For the Lib Dem Leadership: Stop trying to shut US up and do your jobs from the 2nd of April. The follow-up post to this comes in at #2.

  8. Oh Dear. Christian MPs demanding a reversal of the advertising ban on the healing power of prayer from the 26th of March. One of my periodic spats with Tim Farron, whom I really do genuinely get on with and respect on most things. But we tend to part company when it comes to religion... Go back to #9 if you want to see me being happy with Tim ;)

  9. I've Just Got Off The Phone After a Conference Call With the Office of the DPM from the 3rd of April. This one caused a bit of controversy. Apparently some people didn't expect that when a conference call was set up by bloggers, with a bunch of bloggers participating, that some of us might blog about it...

  10. Chris Chibnall: a Rant from the 27th August. My top post of 2012 is pretty intemperate but I still stand by it. I recommend [personal profile] magister's comment on the post too, detailing why this was not just a solitary occurrence, but part of a much larger pattern.
Mostly politics, a bit of tech, and some Doctor Who. Not really a massive surprise on the subject matter, then... I'm a bit sad that four of the top five are basically me being horrible. I know I *can* be horrible, but I don't like to think of myself as horrible. And by Cthulhu's tentacly beard I don't half swear a lot... Food for thought for New Year's Resolutions perhaps.

I am really, genuinely proud of #7 though.

I'd like to thank the 33,117 people who have visited my humble blog this year, especially because 61.23% of you were returning visitors. I hope I can continue to post things you want to read in the coming year.

I didn't make any predictions last year, so I can't tell you how they came out, like Caron and Stephen. I'm not planning on making any this year either; my talents for precognition are non existent.

I am going to make a couple of resolutions though:
  1. Try to keep my inbox empty;

  2. Try not to over commit - again;

  3. Try to engage brain before opening gob/starting to type - in particular when I'm already tired or grumpy or depressed;

  4. Kill the first person who comments "there is no try, only do or not do" to this post
We're catching up on Last Tango in Halifax and then we're going to watch the Hootenannaaaaay.
