From time to time, I look at the number of views for my blog posts. I want to see what interests you. My ten most popular blog posts are:

What do the numbers indicate?

My most popular blog post by far isn't even in this blog. It's the product documentation announcement that I wrote in the blog for the BMC Remedy Community. I'm not surprised there are many people interested in the BMC Remedy product. I'm more surprised that I wrote some posts that are more popular than another product documentation announcement.


With only one exception (Don't just read on -- write on!), all my other popular blog posts have stuck to the overall purpose of this blog (exploring new directions in technical communications). Probably a sign that only a few of you will be reading this off-topic post.


Other factors contributing to some posts being less popular

  • Even old posts get a few views every month. It might take time for my recent blog posts to build up numbers to make it to my top 10.
  • I haven't been blogging regularly for the past couple of years. It's mostly people who blog on a regular basis who have a regular following.
