Yesterday Bil and I posted our top LGBTQ stories of 2008. That was based on us asking, "What will people be talking about 20 years from now?"

Today I'm just taking the top 70 posts on The Bilerico Project based on pageviews, according to Google Analytics. That list is after the jump.

After putting it together, I'd like to note that this list isn't necessarily the best content that's been on the site (although there is some great reading on that list). Take it instead as a case study on how the internet works. We posted around 5500 times this past year, and the entries on this list couldn't just get clicked on from the frontpage to make it to the top. They had to attract traffic from other sources: social networking sites like Facebook and Digg, search engines like Google, and links from other sites and blogs.

Darn. I didn't make the list. I guess I'll have to try harder next year.

This is a great list.

Three out of my five Top 10 posts were about nudity or sex. *sighs*

Oh, Bil, we all know that's why you do it. :)

Surprised none of the gay murders in Indiana made the list. Goes to show you, Lindsay Lohan naked photo shoot tops the list. Sad commentary for a LGBT blog.

Doesn't look like you will be winning best LGBT Blog this year with that lineup. Number 7."Obama will name Bayh his VP choice on Wednesday". lol

Alex, I think Bil's post following this--about Taysia Elzy's murder and the desperate need for progressive changes for Indiana's LGBT community--should be on the list.

I think it should too, but as I said above, this is less a list about quality and more about just how the internet works.

I demand another list: funniest comments.

I think a list ordered by the number of comments would also be very interesting.
