There will no doubt be an absolute flurry of these type of posts from all over the blogosphere over the next few days, but its actually a pretty good exercise to undertake. I get to look back over the stuff I have done over the last 12 months of course, and I’m almost always surprised at what I wrote about!
But I’m really interested in what the readers of the blog thought of my posts. And while there are a number of ways to measure this, comments, shares and what have you, its probably safe to say that the posts with the most readers were the most popular.
Of course its also the case that these most read posts aren’t necessarily my favourite or even what I’ve thought of as my best work. It seems particularly perverse of the blogosphere to reward the writer in that way. Its almost always the case that what Ive thought as my best work is read the least, and the stuff I do quickly or in a less thoughtful manner is the stuff that proves most popular!
Anyway, here we go, the most popular posts on this blog in the last year, by number of readers – I hope you discover something you missed and something you like!
Oh, and have a very happy, healthy and prosperous New Year – I look forward to seeing you back here for lots more of the same!
