Apparently a post about women punching each other in the face is the best thing I have ever done

As most bloggers do this time of year, I was thinking about going back over the previous year and doing a best of 2018 post. But since I really don’t feel like posting 10 links, I am going to link to the most viewed post in the history of this blog which is, surprisingly:

Classic Pictures of Women Punching Each Other in the Face

“A common misconception is that women’s boxing is a relatively new sport.

While it is true that the sport has taken a long time to develop, women’s boxing – in a professional sense – first appeared in England as early as the 1720s in the form of prize fighting i.e. bare-knuckle boxing.

Boxers engaging in this sort of fight – often called ‘fisticuffs’ – do not wear boxing gloves or any other form of padding.

Prize fighting was based on ancient combat sports and led the way for what we recognise today as professional boxing.”

And coming in at number two is a post about whether or not Christians should concern themselves with working out

As with many things in life, there are extremes in the area of exercise. Some people focus entirely on spirituality, to the neglect of their physical bodies. Others focus so much attention on the form and shape of their physical bodies that they neglect spiritual growth and maturity. Neither of these indicates a biblical balance. First Timothy 4:8 informs us, “For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come.” Notice that the verse does not negate the need for exercise. Rather, it says that exercise is valuable, but it prioritizes exercise correctly by saying that godliness is of greater value.

Wierd, I suppose, what sells on any given day but it is what it is.

That being said, and if I had a say in the matter, I would hope people read this post if nothing else.
