Enjoy the Holidays and the Top 10 Posts of 2010 on My Blog

Only a few days left before meeting your relatives for the Holidays, watching some relaxing and cheesy movies about Santa Claus while eating tasty homemade food. Last stretch! To close the 2010 year, which has been a great year for the blog, a great year motivated by an increase in almost all KPIs I’m tracking, and also by extremely interesting comments by you readers, which I’m always happy to read. Thus, I thought it would be a nice idea to post the 10 most popular posts published in 2010 on this blog according to the number of unique page views.

Don’t forget that the 10 most popular posts on this blog, doesn’t mean that they are my favorite top 10, it simply means they have been more popular. So here is the list in a reversing order (from 10 to 1) accompanied by “on the fly” comments.

As the title says, a ranking always useful to refer to.

What to expect for on this blog for next year?

I have decided to change the timing of posts on this blog from a weekly to a biweekly formula (so expect a new post every two Mondays or Tuesdays) since I’ll be more active in exploring the web and also the new strategic trends related to marketing, and sending more timely news via my twitter account (twitter.com/jfbelisle). Also expect more numbers and more useful and applied scientific links, since I’m tending more and more through the final steps of my PhD studies.


Happy Holidays to everyone! Have fun, enjoy these priceless and precious moments with your friends and relatives :-).
