A Load of Bright
An atheist's views on religion and the supernatural

Must-Read Posts


In a few weeks time I will be celebrating (as, I’m sure, will you) six months of writing A Load of Bright. As I now have a respectably large reader base (including some people who are not even related to me) and a reasonably substantial archive, I have decided to mark the occasion by introducing a section of ‘Must-Read’ posts, as voted for by you, the reader. (I do currently have a ‘Top Posts’ section, but it is arranged automatically based on traffic, and is annoyingly fickle. The new ‘Must-Read’ posts section will replace this.)

So, I would like to invite you all to browse the archives and nominate any posts I have written that you think would be suitable. You can nominate just one, or as many as you like. It may be something you found insightful or thought-provoking, perhaps something that moved you emotionally, or it could even be something that you think was so bad that you would want new visitors to read it first and flee for their lives, ensuring that they waste no more of their precious time.

I do have one or two in mind myself, but I don’t want to prompt anyone – I’m curious to see what you all have to say. I’m very bad at predicting the reaction an article will get before I post it, so I’d like to see how the poll plays out with readers looking back. I’m also hoping that some of my readers who don’t normally comment may make themselves known, and that readers who have discovered this site more recently will have an incentive to look back at some of my earlier work.

Please feel free to comment, email me or even write your own blog post if you really want to make your vote public. I will introduce the new section with a post on September 12th.

5 Responses to “Must-Read Posts”

  1. So many to choose from, but I think I’ll go back to one of the early ones I read when I first started blogging:

    The Credit We Deserve

  2. Wow, I don’t really want to have to pick. If you held a gun to my head, though, I would probably select these three:

    Everything Happens for a Reason
    Absent Friends
    For the Feeling Inside

  3. I second the Exterminator’s three picks. How Do You Know That, The Credit We Deserve, and Why I (Almost Certainly) Won’t Get Married In A Church are serious possibilities, too.

  4. I like all the suggestions so far, and I’d also add a vote for The More The Merrier. Happy six months, by the way!
