Who cares about popularity! Avoid the ruts of conformity! (To misquote Thoreau.) Everything that is unpopular is always more interesting and worthy of investigating than anything that is popular. Everything that is popular is terrible and mediocre at best. (Trust me, I’m an expert on unpopularity. I didn’t get where I am today by being popular!)
Some of the most unpopular, or least viewed, Fansinaflashbulb posts in 2014, (all were composed before 2014) that are great and obviously worthy of a view, or re-view, are:

Gum, an Agent to Share or Solitaire
April Fools’ Day
Manchuria-Graph
Great Conductors V: William Steinberg
Photography Art Society of Lithuania: Aleksandras Macijauskas
Russell Means, 1939-2012
Revolt! Bite the Hand That Bleeds You
The World of Tomorrow
