Post 9/16 of Utopia Now was about Lee and Amanda chained together on the back of the truck.. then running for it, and Billy going to Predec 3! lol.. random post to be top huh! I was sure it would be the magic moment by the campfire! 😉 funny so many viewed it and then didn’t comment.. lol.. predec 3 was a bit weird huh! 😉
…144 comments at the end of Over the Limit?!! I’m not surprised!!!!!
The love keeps on coming for The First Time! Again in the top viewed posts of the year..I am busting to go back to this episode and blog it with more detail!!!! Smile 

The busiest day of the year was January 27th with 917 views. What was going on that day?!
The most popular post that day was 10/14 of Murder Between Friends [The post where Amanda tells Dotty she was arrested for murder, and Lee visits Amanda in her backyard to offer her help.. – random again!]

  1. Thanks for sharing this information, Iwsod. It’s fascinating.

    Congrats to Kiwismh and the “runners-up!” I enjoy reading everyone’s comments and reactions. I’ve learned so much and had so much fun!


    • You are very welcome Debilyn! So glad you are able to stop by and catch up on things 🙂 I feel I’m being spoilt with all these Debilyn insights at the moment!


  2. Congrats, kiwismh! To you and your nimble fingers! And lightening quick wit!

    iwsod, thank you again for creating this lovely blog and for being so faithful to it! Since I starting going back to school my SMK time has dropped tremendously, but I am still here. Just commenting more sporadically when I’m on break between classes.

    Here’s to an even better 2015! How far do you project we’ll get on the walk? Will we get into S4 this year?


  3. Great job, Kiwismh! Hopefully you have a place on your mantle to proudly display your Aluminum Sun! 🙂

    Iwsod, can I ask how many of the 109 countries show enough activity to be considered to truly “participate” on the walk, as opposed to random people just passing through? (You can define define “enough activity” any way you’d like.) Before discovering JWWM and the other SMK-related websites it had never occurred to me that SMK was still so popular with so many other people and in so many different countries. But I’m sure glad it is and that we all enjoy writing and/or reading about it. I’m also glad that the rabbit hole never seems to run out of room! The more the merrier! 😀


    • Hello 2 Goldens!

      What a great question.. and.. not an easy one to answer!
      I can see statistics for number of views per country but I can’t see if it is the same person.. I would guess it’s the same person if I see more than 1 or 2 views from a random country.. if that makes sense – because yes a web search for umm Mata Hari may lead someone here – and they’ll quickly realise this blog is not about Mata Hari 😉 tee hee..

      But I can confirm that there are many countries which stop by and read – a few quite random ones I’ve seen with 20 views on one day – say Dominican republic or Korea (South of course 😉 ) or Russian Federation [probably KGB checking up on our Russian spy references 😉 whahahaaa.. hello Russia! We are your friends!! 🙂 tee hee].

      I think there is more people who read than actually comment – maybe they are not confident in their written English…or don’t have access to the show so don’t feel they can comment..or whooo maybe they just come by to drool over Lee pics 😉 whatever it is, I approach people viewing without expectation -that way I am always thrilled when anyone comments here 🙂 I truly am!! 🙂

      The main countries are USA, Canada, UK, Australia, New Zealand, Germany, Ireland, France and Italy I’d say.. Welcome to you all!!!

      Hope that helps 2Goldens!


      • Yes, Iwsod, thanks! And hello to all SMK fans, wherever you are. 🙂

        BTW, I think you’re right…pics of Lee are a universal language unto themselves. 😉


      • Is there anyone else from Canada, or am I the only, lonely one?


        • No idea Cindy – if anyone is reading and in Canada – Cindy would love to hear from ya!

          I know the feeling.. I was thrilled to find one or two fans in Australia!


          • Hi everyone! I’m from Canada! Have been following this site for a bit now. Just haven’t made any comments. I must say there have been numerous times when I have almost laughed out loud but tried to control myself as it would wake up hubby.

            You all have such a great sense of humor…and yes sometimes I find myself in the gutter with you! I had no idea that SMK still had many fans out there who wrote blogs and stories, and had reunions. Thanks for taking the time to create this site!


            • Hi Karin and welcome to JWWM! I saw your first comment on Magic Bus, but thought I’d welcome you here – just to be different 🙂 I live just a few degrees of latitude to the south of you in America, but there are SMK fans all over the globe as you can see! I’m glad you joined in the fun and hope you can stick around!


            • Hooray! We can commiserate together when it’s -30 (unless you are one of the luckies on the west coast 😉 ). Though to be honest, we’ve been having quite a warm spell here so I can’t complain too much.


            • Hi Karin, and welcome! I actually happen live in that area of the US where we can go south to get to Canada, near Detroit. Glad to hear from you and feel free to join in more often. There are some lovely people here.


            • Hi Karin! oh great!! another Canadian!!! 🙂 Love Canadians 🙂

              you are very welcome!


    • Yes, I didn’t know whether to be relieved or alarmed that so many others share my obsession. 🙂

  4. Rather excited (and humbled) ) to make this list. Congrats to kiwismh for managing to be both prolific and profound 🙂
    And thanks for all your hard work, Iwsod: feeding our shared fantasy world and bringing together a great bunch of people

    • take a bow learjet!!! 🙂 Thanks for commenting and sharing in the fun 🙂

      prolific and profound.. great description that.. and yes very apt for Kiwismh 🙂


      • The scary thing is, my total could have been even higher except that in the final months of last year I decided I probably had too much to say so I made a conscious decision to comment less and with more brevity. Less is More from Kiwismh, as it were.
        I encourage all lurkers to try their hand at commenting. You might have something interesting to contribute that none of the rest of us have thought of.
        “Prolific and profound” – oh my, I don’t think in real life no one who knows me would call me profound. I probably talk too much and have too many totally useless facts upon which I can (and do) pontificate at length. Mostly people just want me to shut up… which is what I will do now. 😉

  5. Wow! Didn’t know I had that much to say. I was a lurker for a while before I commented on anything. Can’t say that anymore. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I am so glad that I found this blog. It has been a joy to read, a joy to participate, and a joy to get to know all of you. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Iwsod, for your love of SMK, thank you for starting this and keeping it going. Looking forward to the rest of 2015 and more walking on this journey of Lee and Amanda’s.

  6. Iwsod, you do a wonderful job with this amazing blog! Thank you and everyone for this fun, insightful and thoroughly delightful indulgence (no, it’s really a necessity!). Cheers!


  7. Whoa! I was so not expecting that! I can’t believe I posted that many times.
    Thanks for the Aluminium Sun award, Iwsod, and thanks for creating the JWWM blog. 😀
    Also thanks to all the other contributors for their informative and entertaining comments, and who make it such fun to be at JWWM.
    I hope everyone else gets more time to contribute this year.

  8. I was worried I wouldn’t crack top 5 for 2014 as I haven’t been able to comment as much as I would have liked. Thanks again, IWSOD for creating such an amazing place for us to indulge our obsession — I mean hobby of all things SMK.
