Roundup: The Top 5 Posts on Wide Eyed In Wonder

If you want a quick click to the most popular posts on Wide Eyed in Wonder you have come to the right place.

This blog has been in existence since 2012 and I never thought it would take off, but it has in a weird kind of sense. Given that it is a naked niche blog (see post on Naked Niche blogging) it has done alright.

Dreams of earning loads of money and making a living through my blog are still but a dream. I do not even have ads enabled. But I live in hope.

In any event, below is a roundup of the most popular posts on Wide Eyed In Wonder, those that have been most searched and read.

In reverse order…

Number 5 is: Pune

An India post. Did I already mention that my India travel posts are still popular? No? Ok, I am mentioning it now. I lived in Pune for 3 weeks and what an experience it was. I still have friends living in that city and would like to spend more time there.

Number 4 is: Twist – Graffiti in Lisbon

I find my street art posts are also very popular. There are photos naturally. In general there is a fascination with street art the world over. I would love to travel the world looking for and photographing interesting street art. There is no better expression of a people’s culture, mindset and psyche than that which is expressed in paint on a wall.

Number 3 is: A Mini in Name Only

The story of the Minis in our family, and the fun we have had with it. If you love the Mini you will enjoy this and perhaps recognise some of your own experiences in it.

Number 2 is: Mumbai

Another India travel post which remain popular even 2 years after posting. They normally show up high on search results.

And number 1 is: New Delhi – a city anywhere in the world

It details my impressions of this metropolis, with loads of photos and a story about one of the many arguments I had in India with vendors, rickshaw drivers and tour guides.

Making lists grounds me, removes anxiety and brings structure to a life bordering on chaos.

I hope you have enjoyed these posts and helped make them more popular :-).
