I like to be literal-minded for its comic potential, but i don't know whether that should count toward *being* literal-minded. It's like doing impressions of people with disabilities (but less mean, right?).

You are way more awesome than a 4. Outlier.

You've eliminated the blindness of the study with the link at the bottom. You could just mine data from past entries.

Estimating "audience engagement" from the number of comments, I went through and ranked your January entries in a few categories. The standouts were all personal anecdotes / introspection, except for the one "link" entry with the Burger King receipt. Surprisingly to me, the presence of a photo with an entry didn't appear to give it a boost -- although the sample size was really too small to draw conclusions. Also, I just realized I should total the number of commenters in addition to the total number of comments. Posts that spawn long back-and-forth conversations are probably different than those that have lots of single responses.

Come up with a spreadsheet for me, and I'll paint it.

Oh, and I would definitely say that your "literal-minded" 10 has a low margin of error.
