Best of 2010 Recap

Leave it to me to wait until February to do a recap of my blog from 2010. There may be some missing as I had to try to consolidate the info I have since March when I went to self hosting with what I had prior.

So if you are new to Bearman Cartoons, you can save yourself time digging through the archives by reviewing the best of 2010.

Top Posts (by Visits)

Top Posts (by comments which is more Important to me anyway – even though half are mine)

And finally the reason I do this is for the interaction.  I am so lucky to have all of you take the time to read and keep coming back for more.  I would list the top 10 but three of my top 2010 commenters stopped blogging themselves.   Susi Spice, Lynn, and Robert (SpilledInk – though he still is very active in the comments).  So visit this seven and show them some love on their blogs.  Heck…visit all my commenters.  They are more likely to come visit you than some cartoonists who you put on a pedestal and visit regularly but won’t give you the time of day.

Upset you didn’t make the cut?  Well now, whose fault is that?  Step it up (haha).  Thanks again all.

    I like the Ground Zero cartoon. Didn’t see it before. I think to the freedom of press and speech amendments, they should add the ‘freedom of sarcasm’ amendment.

  2. My favourites on the list were the RD Reject cartoon with the screwed on/off head & the Noisy Sunchips. I am still amazed that a pack of chips could be so noisy that they get complaints. I made the top 10, Wow Thanks a lot for the exposure…
    I must say in agreement that their are a number of webcomics I visit because I really like their cartoons who have never returned my visits. Or if they have they haven’t left comments so I knew they were there. I am on the verge of a big RSS Reader clean out. I really like some of them but why continue to make the effort if they can’t be bothered repaying the visits

    • Bearman says:

      I should clarify. There are many people I have in my reader who never (or rarely) come comment here. I may read them because while they don’t comment here they may give me regular shout outs or retweets on twitter.

      Or, they may do neither but they interact with their readers. I realize there are people who have all they can do just keeping up with their own site. I am not one who needs a response to everything a write but if someone doesn’t reply to any of their readers ever, I tend to move on.

      That being said. When I am busy and need to get through my reader fast, the people that comment here are the ones who I tend to visit and skip the others.

    Oops I was still logged in as Dixie…

    I’m impressed (not that it takes a lot to impress me, or press me for that matter) that you were able to have so many people comment on your cartoons.

    A sure sign of a good artiste.

    Which is why your blog is the only web cartoon (or any cartoon for that matter) that I have linked on my blog.

  5. Duncanr says:

    Jeez, Bearman, if I visit loon any more than I do now I’ll have to marry the bint !!! 😉

  6. Bo Lumpkin says:

    I have learned more about interaction with others from you and this site than I could have from a college course. You have taught a lot of us that it is about the people who read your stuff. Thanks Bearman. (I’ll come back later and make some kind of smart aleck remark :),

    It’s 10:46 AM EST just as the crow flies …..into a snowbank! *smirk*

    Good luck this year

  9. Binky says:

    I’m somewhat of a latecomer to your site so I missed most of last year’s best ones, but it has been fun, and since things improve with age, you should be even better this year.

  10. Friggin Loon says:

    Woohoo, I look friggin handsome….so does Jammers.
    I’m guessing you are watching the Super Bowl . Go Red Soxs!!!!

  11. I am with you on the Credit Card ID that did hit home with a lot of people. Rick the stick was quite funny as well.

  12. MJ says:

    Excellent Recap! Enjoyed this post! Looking forward to seeing some cool cartoons.

  13. nursemyra says:

    Thanks for the link back bearman, shall continue to visit xx

  14. i’m still waiting for my cartoon likeness of Blunt as wonder woman.

    her magical power could be to shoot people’s dreams down with her sarcasm. But in actuality, it SAVES them, because let’s face it, that was an unrealistic goal. We gotta be honest with our capabilities.

    i think it’s a winner.

  15. DadaHyena says:

    Vas?! Bo and George beat me out of the top three?! Oooh, I’ll show them! I’LL SHOW THEM ALL!

    You may have won this time, but I’ll be BACK!

  16. George says:

    Thanks for the shout-out, Bearman! You always have the best, most-interesting posts around! 😀

  17. SpilledInkGuy says:

    WOWZA! ‘Thems’ some impressive numbers, Bearman – well deserved congrats, sir! 🙂

    And coincidentally… I just started a new blog-ish… thing (if I put together a new banner could I convince you to swap it out with the Spilled Ink one)?! How’s that for shameless?

  18. writerdood says:

    It’s like a collection of great dance tunes, except it’s a collection of great bear-toons. Nice work. I’m looking forward to more this year.

  19. You do consistently good work and are very attentive to your commentators; a combination that wins whethere the national anthem was sung proper or not.

  20. Mel says:

    I have learned to never recap after Christmas because it takes at least until the middle of January to get readers attentions.

  21. MJ says:

    Thanks huge for the shout out at The Daily Cartoonist. I appreciate the support!

  22. Nate Fakes says:

    Man…can’t believe I didn’t make the cut (sigh). Maybe next time

    • Bearman says:

      I think you started the year strong and then you decided to

      A: spend your time on potentially paying work and
      B: Launching/relaunching 20 different webcomics.

      • Nate Fakes says:

        Ah-hem…that’s 22 different webcomics! And yea, remember the Frustrated Cartoonist reader poll? If I can get interns, I so starting that up again

  23. lisleman says:

    you have some loyal readers. I’m thankful for your visits and comments on my blog. The one post that was the best for me was the Sun Chips. As you know I made a post and youtube clip from that important info. thanks

  24. Colleen Dick says:

    I second all that o great Bruin. You’re the tops!
