When I started blogging in 2009, I had no idea a post on a rotisserie chicken would get so much attention.
I started Do You Really Know What You're Eating? to continue the work I did as a food writer on a local daily newspaper.
As a blogger, I was able to expand that beat to include food shopping, which newspapers avoid covering lest they alienate one chain or another that pays them hundreds of thousands of dollars to run full-page ads.
I've also reported on the industrial-farm system for raising poultry and meat, especially the heavy reliance on harmful human antibiotics and growth hormones.
Bird isn't the word
As a member of Costco Wholesale, I love the quality of most of the products sold under the house or private label, Kirkland Signature, but not the seasoned rotisserie chicken.
My post on that low-quality bird, first published on Dec. 5, 2012, has been read more than 97,000 times, according to the internal counter on Google's Blogger platform.

A post comparing Costco's Kirkland Signature Basil Pesto with the pesto sold by Trader Joe's has had nearly 29,000 hits:

After I bought a Tesla Model S in 2015, my most popular post on another blog, Shocking Car News, discussed how the media generally ignore the environmental benefit of green cars.

By the way, if you are in the market for a Model S or Model X, using my unique referral code will get you a $1,000 credit on an all-electric vehicle, and free electricity for life at Tesla's nationwide network of Superchargers.
On The Sasson Report, which incorporates those blogs as well as Eye on The Record, a post on President Trump is the most popular so far.
