In the past twelve months, this blog has had 396,201 visits and 236,047 post views. I find it interesting to contemplate the top ten posts. The top ten are listed below along with the number of views each had in the past 12 months, the date it was published and my comment/question about the post.

So, I’m a sales guy not a web guy, but I think that I’m happy that half of my top ten articles are less than 3 months old. If you have thoughts, please share in the comments or privately by email. If you have a favorite post, but it’s not listed above, feel free to tweet it or write an article and link to it. I’ll RT or promote it. Also, BTW, you may remember that I’ve had a few guest authors along the way. None of them made the top ten, but #11 was a guest post and missed being #10 by 3 views. If you’ve got an article that’s itching to be published, let me know. We’ll get it done.
