Something amazing happened last week.
People liked one of my blog posts. I mean, they really liked it!
At last glance, my little post on 10 Things to Say to the Trick-or-Treaters Dressed as Elsa was liked by over four thousand people on Facebook. Four thousand! My previous best was probably less than a hundred.
Okay, maybe it was a few dozen.
When I shared the good news with my husband, he asked “What does that mean?” Good question! Turns out it meant I was happy – and that’s pretty much it.
“Can you do it again?” he asked.
Another good question! The answer is a big fat hopefully. But it may have been simply a cosmic alignment of all the right planets and stars and Elsa costumes in the year 2014. In other words, maybe lightning won’t strike twice. After all, how many posts on Elsa and Halloween can a person write, much less get shared by the right people at the right time?
So I’m calling it. I may very well have peaked. I could be a one-hit wonder of the blogosphere!
Which got me thinking. What are some of the greatest one-hit wonders of all time (besides me of course)?
Here are my picks, spanning the 70s, 80s, 90s, and 2000s.
1. Kung Fu Fighting by Carl Douglas.
2. Two of Hearts by Stacey Q.
3. 99 Luftballoons by Nena.
4. Stacy’s Mom by Fountains of Wayne.
5. You Light Up My Life by Debby Boone.
6. Tub Thumping by Chumbawamba.
7. Too Shy by Kajagoogoo.
8. Torn by Natalie Imbruglia.
9. Relax by Frankie Goes to Hollywood.
10. Come on Eileen by Dexy’s Midnight Runners.
Did I pick any of your favorite one-hit wonders? What one-hit wonder are you now going to sing all day? What would you include in the list?
Don’t forget to follow me on Facebook. Maybe you’ll be the reason that lightning strikes twice for the Experienced Bad Mom! And if you were one of the folks who shared my Elsa Halloween post? Thank you! Truly, thank you.
