Here are my top ten posts. I wrote five of these posts more than a year ago. If you are a blogger, you can continue to generate significant traffic for old posts, provided you are intentional about it. (I outline my strategy in a blog post called, “Recycling Your Blog Content.”)It didn’t hurt that Lifehacker linked to my top post. That alone quadrupled my daily traffic the day after I posted it.

Also, my About page continues to be in the top ten. If you are a blogger, this is why it is important to carefully engineer this page. You might want to read “10 Ways to Create a Better About Page for Your Blog.”

    I’m new around here, and will more than likely NEVER comment enough to receive anything, but I wanted to thank you for this recap. There are several posts I missed or have never seen, and I’m glad I get to read them now. I appreciate your words and have shared many posts with other people often. Thanks again!

    My top post was Women’s Ministry Ideas. I made a video of a monthly event we hold at our church and women are constantly searching for new ideas to grow their ministries in the church.
