Numbered-list posts are one of the most popular formats in the blogosphere. Just pick a topic, pick a number, and fill in the blanks. The internet is littered with these kinds of posts, but every so often you stumble across a good one, or maybe several. And then you notice a pattern and a theme for your weekly best-of-the-blogosphere post. That’s exactly what happened to me this week. I found enough posts to create a countdown of my favorite numbered-list posts of the week.
“My Ten Biggest Blogging Blunders EVER” by Molly Greene.
“The 9 Players at Every NFL Training Camp” by DJ Gallo at Sports Pickle.
“8 Things that Reveal a Woman’s Character: The Sarcastic Version” by Natalie Trust.
“Potty Training: 7 Lessons Learned” by Alice Callahan at Science of Mom.
“6 Reasons You’ll Fall in Love with Hood River” by Liz Overson at Red Tricycle.
“5 Parenting Rules Made to be Broken in Summer” by Sarah Bernard at The Stir.
(From here, I have to stretch the rules a bit. These aren’t technically numbered-list posts, but they still fit the theme closely enough to finish the countdown.)
Four things “an obsessive foodie wants in a donut,” listed in the post “Blue Star Donuts Knocks Voodoo Doughnuts off the Pedestal” by Evelyn at Momsicle.
Three Things for Mom, a blog that offers “a tip, a truth, and a find every day.”
My two favorite songs this week. “Good to Me” and “Come Thou Fount” by Audrey Assad on NoiseTrade (free download, but don’t forget to leave a tip).
And the One.

“Supperjumpin’: Inventing the worst, saddest sport in the history of the world” by Jon Bois at SB Nation.
Hurts my stomach just thinking about it.
