What’s Trending on USNA Or Bust

I calculate what’s trending on my blog by which of my posts are popular a particular thirty-day period. Here’s this period’s run-down:

  1. Eleven Top Naval Battles–always at the top of the list
  2. Marcus Lutrell Great Quotes: the Lone Survivor–a perennial favorite person
  3. How to Prepare for the Congressional Interview–Part III–This three-part series was heavily visited because Congressional interviews took place in November
  4. American Hero: Dakota Meyer–a living American hero
  5. Who is That Old Walmart Greeter?–a story of American spirit
  6. Join the Navy, See the World–Still True–my daughter’s first year in the Navy. The post-college excitement of her peer group from high school can’t compare with my daughter’s travels
  7. November To Do List for USNA Applicants–a monthly To Do list to prepare for military academy applications. This is always a popular article
  8. Qualifications of a Naval Officer–what does it take?
  9. USNA/USN Resource Sites–be sure you know what you’re getting into before signing nine years of your life over to the Navy
  10. USNA: Blue and Gold Interview–This interview also takes place in November/December

When I post the yearly favorites, you will see some big differences.

  1. Very cool that the 11 Top Naval Battles heads the list! Hope your daughter managed to enjoy the Army v Navy game yesterday! Although I imagine your son was not so pleased 😦


    • Army lost that game with all of their turnovers. I bet your boyfriend agrees. Navy didn’t play all that well and might have lost if Army played a solid game. Oh well. No matter the winner, that’s always a fun game.
