Last year an indie musician expressed an interest in perusing a piece on your crusty chronicler’s “Best of 2012”. Unfortunately, Examiner.com still does not currently make anyone privy to the specific statistics on every article published. Still, the idea certainly had merit.
It only seemed fair to establish an objective method to establish “the best” of your randy writer’s writings. Hence it was decided last year to determine the “Top 5” articles based solely on the number of “Likes” on each article. This way the results would more accurately indicate the effort made by readers. (In order to “like” the articles one must at least actually open the page and click on the “Like” button.)
Earlier in 2013 Examiner had actually removed the “Like” button but upon popular demand it was brought back relatively quickly all things considered. Hopefully, this did not have any impact on the voting. At any rate, the Academy folks have their Oscars and now you, the readers, have The Phoenix Music Awards affectionately known as” The Will.i.ams”.
