If websites had birthdays, this would be our first. And though we’re not the type to blow our own horn, we’ll be in the office until 6 today in case someone wants to send a cake with a lingerie model ready to leap out!
To mark the occasion, we thought we’d answer a question we get asked a lot: which articles are the most popular?
Below you’ll find a list of the 25 most-read articles on Lingerie Talk from our first year in business, during which we posted more than 600 pieces. Keep in mind that older articles have a better chance of making this list (because they’ve been around longer, duh), and because some posts go “viral” inexplicably, resulting in crazy traffic that skews our typical patterns.
And, to be honest, we’re a bit embarrassed to show you the list. When you see the #1 post, you’ll understand why. We’d like to believe that people turn to Lingerie Talk for our cutting-edge insights into up-and-coming labels like Ari Dein or specialty products like beaver fur bras, but really they just like the photos of girls in French maid’s costumes and skimpy football outfits!
Well, not entirely. Most of the articles posted in 2011 are moving quickly toward the top of this list, especially those in our Bright Young Things series from January. And it’s very gratifying to see several great Canadian labels (Fortnight, La Fee Verte, Blush) on this list.
We hope you enjoy this look back, and if you haven’t read all these posts it’s a fun way to see what other people are interested in.
Finally, our deepest thanks to all the readers and industry folks who have been so ridiculously supportive of Lingerie Talk over the past year: we are all very grateful. We have a TON of exciting plans for year two, so stay tuned!
