Top Posts and Commenters for January 2011

In case you missed them, I have listed my top ten posts for January 2011, along with my top ten commenters. I am sending each of the top commenters a free copy Eric Metaxas’ New York Times bestseller, Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy.

Here are my top ten posts. I wrote four 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 for that here.)

If you are just getting started with Evernote, I suggest that you buy Brett Kelly’s remarkably practical e-book, Evernote Essentials, Second Edition. It is worth setting aside a couple hours to work through this brief, 95-page book. It will save you DAYS of learning Evernote on your own.

    Great! Thanks for the recap and links.

    Once more I am happy to note that I am one of the top ten commentators for January 2011.

    I have started photo blogging recently with reference to the places I am visiting. Hence, I could say that my top post for January would be my photo blog on my visit to village Mahasamund in Chattisgarh province of India. I was able to enjoy the beauty of the nature during this trip which I really miss during my urban life.

      Congratulations, Uma! I appreciate your consistent participation in the comments section here.

      Congratulations, Uma! I appreciate your consistent participation in the comments section here.

      • http://uma-maheswaran.blogspot.com/ Uma Maheswaran S

        Thanks Mike for your appreciation and encouragement. Indeed, I have been able to learn many new things after I started following your blog. You are an inspiration to me and I mean it.

        • http://coachradio.tv/ Justin Lukasavige

          I second the inspiration from the site!

          • http://michaelhyatt.com Michael Hyatt

            Thanks, Justin.

  • http://joyfulmothering.net Christin

    My top post was “Habitual Joy” and honestly, I believe it was “top” simply because it was linked with a meme. There was nothing spectacular about it and received few comments. That was the most viewed post.

    The most engaged post was called “Two ‘Me Time’ Extremes” . The first post in a 4 part series.

    Thank you for the list!

    • http://uma-maheswaran.blogspot.com/ Uma Maheswaran S

      Christin! I read your post “Habitual Joy” in your blog. Good insight on ‘word life’ in this wordly life. Thanks for sharing.

      • http://joyfulmothering.net Christin

        Oh thank you so much Uma! :O) I appreciate your encouraging feedback! Bless you!

    My best post last month was one I wrote over a year ago: “Leadership Lessons from Watching Football” ( http://geoffreywebb.wordpress.com/2009/12/14/leadership-lessons-from-watching-football/ ). It always gets a lot of traffic during football season—all the more during the playoffs!

    P.S. Some of my favorite titles of yours last month were “Why I Stopped Reading Your Blog” & “Why I Won’t Retweet You” – good stuff, thanks!

    • http://uma-maheswaran.blogspot.com/ Uma Maheswaran S

      Geoff! I am leadership freak. Your article on ” Leadership Lessons from Watching Football” made me realize the importance of delegation. Like it.

      • http://geoffreywebb.wordpress.com/ Geoff Webb

        Glad you enjoyed it, Uma! It helps me justify watching football as “leadership development” ;)

        • http://stevencribbs.com Steven Cribbs

          Football and leadership development – I like it! I recently used football for a post as well – noticing the difference in passion and effort from the same team in two different games and the difference in the outcome (http://stevencribbs.com/life/a-tale-of-two-teams-which-are-you/).

          • http://www.bigb94.webs.com Brandon

            I liked that one!

    • http://coachradio.tv/ Justin Lukasavige

      Interesting, Geoff. Are you sending people back to that post during football season?

      • http://geoffreywebb.wordpress.com/ Geoff Webb

        Good question. The answer is actually, no. People just search for football (mostly on Mondays apparently) and it just comes up in the search.

        Although after seeing it’s popularity, I do plan on re-posting it before the super bowl.

        • http://reflectionswithcoffee.com BettyMc

          And football generates more comments – wink.

  • Timothy Fish

    My top post continues to be Review: WestBow Press (http://timothyfish.blogspot.com/2010/03/review-westbow-press.html) which probably says more about the advertising efforts of WestBow Press than it does my blog.

    The second on the list is more intriguing, A Sample Synopsis (http://timothyfish.blogspot.com/2008/09/sample-synopsis.html). I can’t help but wonder if it is an indication that more people are submitting manuscripts to agents and publishers.

    • http://uma-maheswaran.blogspot.com/ Uma Maheswaran S

      Timothy! Good resourceful article on importance of cover design of books.

  • Karl

    My two top blogs for 2010 were actually written over two years ago. One dealt with the SAT, so it gets a lot of hits around SAT testing dates, and one dealt with a difficult topic in Calculus. It gets a lot of hits from college sophomores looking for programs for their graphing calculators.

    • http://coachradio.tv/ Justin Lukasavige

      I’d be interested to hear how people are finding old content, Karl. You must be doing something right.

      • Karlmealor

        Actually, I’m not even trying to generate traffic on the blog. It’s mainly a blog for my math classes. Apparently, however, I am one of the few people who have written about two, very specific math topics.

  • http://twitter.com/MacKinnonChris Chris MacKinnon

    I didn’t make it for January, but I’ll press on. I learned a lot about myself and writing while checking in every day or two and being part of the conversation.

    • http://michaelhyatt.com Michael Hyatt

      Thanks, Chris. I appreciate your participation.

    • http://twitter.com/B_Schebs B_Schebs

      Chris, keep up the participation. I, like you, have not made it into a top 10 spot, but I love reading everyones comments and quality comments means so much more than quantity.

  • http://uma-maheswaran.blogspot.com/ Uma Maheswaran S

    Christin! I read your post “Habitual Joy” in your blog. Good insight on ‘word life’ in this worldly life. Thanks for sharing.

  • Dean Deguara

    My most popular post in January was on divorce. Still tryin to find my niche so I’m not totally sure why other than many have been impacted by it and under estimate it’s destructive power. I had 60 views in less than 4 hours which for my fairly new blog a lot of traffic.

    • http://geoffreywebb.wordpress.com/ Geoff Webb

      Dean – Make sure you look at other variables that were unique to that post—such as when you posted it, on what day of the week, and how or where you let others know about it (twitter? Facebook?). You may find some technique you can repeat on other posts.

      • http://michaelhyatt.com Michael Hyatt

        This is good advice.

  • Karl

    One of my favorites not on your list was http://michaelhyatt.com/focus-on-blog-content-before-traffic.html.

    The one I found most helpful on the list was #6. It was great to be reminded of it today. I’ve been moping around this morning, feeling dog-tired, but staring at a to-do list that is miles long. I’m going to pick a couple of “energy-boosters” at random and give them a shot. Thank you for the encouragement this morning.

    • http://stevencribbs.com Steven Cribbs

      Hey Karl, thanks for sharing one of your favorite post links – it has some great reminders for new bloggers like myself.

  • Karl

    Did I say #6? I meant #10. Sorry! I told you I was tired! (And no, I’m not trying to boost my comment total!)

  • http://twitter.com/doughibbard Doug Hibbard

    My top blog post in January was “A Letter to Jeff Fisher” in light of his departure from the Titans. I take that as the top because it actually garnered some comments and retweets of the link. I think it’s because several people in my close-knit blog life are Titans fans, but I’m not sure.

    Doug

    • http://uma-maheswaran.blogspot.com/ Uma Maheswaran S

      Doug! Read the letter. Good reflective substance.

    • http://stevencribbs.com Steven Cribbs

      Nice letter. I have my favorite football teams that I have grown up with. However, when choosing a team to support, character of players and of the coach has come to be a huge factor.

      I wish that our culture focused more on the outstanding character of individuals and emphasized the respect that we should have for one another.

  • http://twitter.com/NewEnglandHiker Roy Wallen

    Thank you for the consistent quality in content. Your comments have been thought-provoking adn informative. I have appreciated reading your comments here and following your Twitter posts as well. Please keep the content coming.

    • http://michaelhyatt.com Michael Hyatt

      Thanks, Roy. I appreciate that.

  • Jeff Goins

    Thanks, Mike! (Man, I missed the #1 spot by one comment!)

    • http://coachradio.tv/ Justin Lukasavige

      It’s a new month. ;)

    • http://michaelhyatt.com Michael Hyatt

      I appreciate your comments, Jeff. You were certainly close to being #1. I’ll bet you get there this month!

      • http://stevencribbs.com Steven Cribbs

        Hey Jeff, I’ll bet you end up at the top too – I was certainly surprised to see my name at the top this month.

        • http://goinswriter.com Jeff Goins

          you were a noble adversary, steven. congrats!

  • http://www.prokopetsstudio.com/blog Candace Prokopets

    Well, I better start commenting now then. This is quickly becoming one of my favorite blogs. It might even be rivaling for the #1 spot.

    • http://michaelhyatt.com Michael Hyatt

      Wow. Thank you for THAT!

  • http://familysynergy.wordpress.com JD Eddins

    My top post for the month of January was entitled “The Babysitting Exchange.” I write a blog about leadership in families so I think this practical post provided some advice for families that need to have a date night, but hate always having to pay for a babysitter.

    • http://uma-maheswaran.blogspot.com/ Uma Maheswaran S

      Eddins! You are doing a fantastic work through your website stressing the importance of family value. Looks professional and great.

      • http://familysynergy.wordpress.com JD Eddins

        Thanks! Do you have a blog I should be following?

  • http://www.embracepositivepassion.com Georgiana

    Congrats to all the top commenters and thank you for the recap of the top posts. My top post on Embrace Positive Passion was based on “Don’t Worry Be Happy” focusing on God’s still small voice speaking to us ~
    http://embracepositivepassion.com/blog/?p=1847
    God has a divine plan for each one of us on our short earthly journey! :-)

    • http://uma-maheswaran.blogspot.com/ Uma Maheswaran S

      Georgiana! A poem with reference to India. I like it. (!!!!). Good lines underlining the importance of contention in life.

  • http://www.impartinggrace.com Richella @ Imparting Grace

    I’ve just started following you, both here and on Twitter. And you’ve ALREADY changed the way I blog.

    Can a comment contain how much I want to say “thank you”? I hope so.

    THANK YOU.

    • http://michaelhyatt.com Michael Hyatt

      Wow. Thanks, Richella!

  • http://LookingForPurpose.com Dylan Dodson

    My top post was “My Thoughts On Suicide.” I lost my father to a suicide 18 months ago, so people are always interested when I write on the topic.

    • http://uma-maheswaran.blogspot.com/ Uma Maheswaran S

      Dylan! Read your 3 posts on suicide. Your personal experience has been reflected in those lines. When certain bad things happens to us, we try to find answers for the same. And, in the process we become more reflective and tolerant of inconveniences surrounding us. Thanks for sharing your posts.

    • http://michaelhyatt.com Michael Hyatt

      I am so sorry. I can’t imagine what that must have been like.

  • http://successbeginstoday.org/wordpress John Richardson

    Great content this month, Michael. I really liked your more assertive tone, with posts like Why I Stopped Reading Your Blog and Why I Won’t Retweet You. Like Geoff said, those are powerful titles.

    Since January is always my top traffic month, my two perennial goal setting posts were my top two again, but my latest video post, Do One Thing, took the traffic honors for the month.

    It’s great to make your top commenter’s list again. Your blog is definitely one of the best conversations on the web!

    • http://uma-maheswaran.blogspot.com/ Uma Maheswaran S

      John! The post on “STRONG Goals: Timing Is Everything!” was head on. I learnt the importance of focus and concentration in our activities. And, the principle of ‘one at a time’. Great inspiring stuff.

      • http://successbeginstoday.org/wordpress John Richardson

        Thanks Uma. I can honestly say that this simple concept of working in a focused manner has made a huge difference in my life. The secret is to get distractions under control.

    • http://michaelhyatt.com Michael Hyatt

      Thanks, John. I really have tried to be more assertive. I don’t want to come off as arrogant, but I think that qualifying everything waters writing down. As a result, I have just tried to say it, without the qualifiers.

      Thanks for being such an important part of this community of readers!

    • http://twitter.com/B_Schebs B_Schebs

      I think that your comment here about the strong titles is great especially considering Michaels recent blog about choosing titles.

  • http://2020visiononline.org Josh Hood

    My top post of the month was “10 Questions Worth Asking” http://tinyurl.com/4zgrbgc. It always surprises me which posts get the most traffic.
    Thanks for all the great content and resources, Mike.

    • http://uma-maheswaran.blogspot.com/ Uma Maheswaran S

      Josh! Great introspective questions. And, I find your blog resourceful and I have decided to follow it. Thanks to Mike’s comment column.

      • http://2020visiononline.org Josh Hood

        Thank you, Uma! You are very kind.

    • http://stevencribbs.com Steven Cribbs

      I enjoyed the post – those questions really are great conversation starters.

      • http://2020visiononline.org Josh Hood

        Thank you, Steven. I appreciate you taking time to say so! I checked out your blog today and was very impressed. Keep up the good work.

        • http://stevencribbs.com Steven Cribbs

          Thanks Josh! I am certainly learning a lot from this community.

  • http://relevantbrokenness.com Marni Arnold

    My top post for January was: “The Masquerade”
    http://relevantbrokenness.com/the-masquerade/

    I sincerely believe it got as much reception as it did (because while I didn’t get a lot of comments, I did get a few emails from this one, and it was re-tweeted a couple of times) is because it really hit home to a lot of people. People were able to connect with the image of wearing a mask in life – and feeling the drain of doing such.

    I am finding my more “hit the gut” kind of postings like this really connect with people. And blogging about brokenness, people want to know that you truly do connect with them.

    I am fairly new to all of this, and I am learning as I go along – one area I am challenged in? Shortening my postings…it is difficult for me to get out the images in my heart in less than an essay format; but I am praying on the wisdom of how to do this. I am also praying, and working, on how to make connections better with people through my blog – like this post did.

  • http://www.gospellab.com Gospel lab

    Wow! There is a big jump in comments from December. Is January a popular month to comment ?

    I guess the cold keeps people inside by their computers.

    • http://coachradio.tv/ Justin Lukasavige

      Or maybe, better content. :)

    • http://michaelhyatt.com Michael Hyatt

      I changed comments software during this time, and I think that also contributed to the growth. (I am now using Disqus.)

      • http://geoffreywebb.wordpress.com/ Geoff Webb

        And you posted more often this month too, right? I bet more posts = more opportunities to comment.

        • http://michaelhyatt.com Michael Hyatt

          Yes, I did. I posted 22 times. I posted about 15 times in December. Thanks.

      • http://twitter.com/B_Schebs B_Schebs

        I am loving the ease of using Disqus to post comments. It works great and ease of using Twitter to log in is a plus.

        • http://michaelhyatt.com Michael Hyatt

          Great. Thanks. It is much easier on me, too. I especially love the ability to be able to reply by email (as I am doing now.).

  • http://stevencribbs.com Steven Cribbs

    Thanks Mike! And thanks for the privilege of participating in the conversation!

    My blog is still very new (just under 2 months) and I only have a few posts so far. However, my top post was “Someone Needs A Time-Out: Is It You?” (http://stevencribbs.com/parenting/someone-needs-a-time-out-is-it-you). One aspect of my blog is to share lessons that I am learning as a parent. This particular post gained attention from some people that sent the link out to their online communities.

    • http://uma-maheswaran.blogspot.com/ Uma Maheswaran S

      Great suggestion Steven! Good biblical idea in your words. Praise God! I like it.

      • http://stevencribbs.com Steven Cribbs

        Thanks Uma!

    • http://geoffreywebb.wordpress.com/ Geoff Webb

      I remember the time out post, Steven. My kids are 1 and 3, so that one spoke right to me!

  • http://uma-maheswaran.blogspot.com/ Uma Maheswaran S

    Marni! Sadly many in today’s world wear masks to appease someone and gain recognition of earthly people (rather than God).

  • Ashley Musick

    You posted so many good blogs this month it required lots of fun comments!

    • http://coachradio.tv/ Justin Lukasavige

      Same here!

    • http://michaelhyatt.com Michael Hyatt

      Thanks, Ashley. It is kind of you to say so.

  • www.therextras.com

    Congrats to all winning commenters! I am now out of my league here – no way I will be making 75 (75!) comments in one month! You definitely lead the way, Michael – the comment interaction here is definitely due to your smart hard work.
    Barbara

    • http://michaelhyatt.com Michael Hyatt

      Thanks, Barbara. I am blessed with a wonderful, respectful community of readers.

  • http://coachradio.tv/ Justin Lukasavige

    Interestingly, my top post for January was Stop Double Spacing (http://www.coachradio.tv/stop-double-spacing). Funny because it was off topic on grammar rules of all things. I think people appreciated the change and the quick insight into something they didn’t know.

    • http://michaelhyatt.com Michael Hyatt

      I twittered a link to a post on this and it got huge retweets. Who knew?

  • http://blog.cyberquill.com Cyberquill

    My top post for January—by an astronomical margin, as it has been for the past 3-4 months—was a post I had published last August titled Elvis and the Goat. The hits have been pouring in from all over the world, mainly from individuals googling terms like “goat” or “goat pictures.” There appears to exist some global fascination with goats. The post’s popularity is clearly unrelated to its actual substance.

    My second most popular post was an 8,000-plus-word book review (yes, about that Nelson novel) I published last April. Due to its sheer length, it contains numerous key words that people search for. I am fairly confident that no one ever actually reads more than one or two paragraphs of it, if this much at all.

    My third most popular post was my most recent one, which, at 150 words long, also happens to be the shortest one I ever published.

    So among my top three posts for January are both my longest and my shortest. Not sure what’s the lesson here about optimal post length.

    • http://michaelhyatt.com Michael Hyatt

      That is really interesting on the length. Hmm.

      • http://blog.cyberquill.com Cyberquill

        When it comes to blog posts, I suppose there are two types of “popularity”: (1) content-based and (2) content-unrelated.

        I attribute the fact that my longest post remains among my most “popular” ones to the variety and abundance of frequently googled search terms it happens to contain, which simply drives traffic to the page. Once arrived and having determined via a quick scroll to the bottom that the post is about 12-ft long, no one proceeds to settle down in a comfy chair with a nice cup of tea to enjoy and contemplate the literary brilliance of my detailed disquisition, i.e., its “popularity” is entirely content-unrelated.

        Unlike short posts, which—although generally less of a magnet for search engines—people may actually read, appreciate for the information they contain, and share with their friends; a totally different kind of popularity.

  • http://twitter.com/theJuke2 Kristen J

    My top post was one where I discussed the ethics and environmental impacts of purging precious metals and stones from the earth for the sake of making wedding rings. I suspect that this was my most popular post in January due to people’s increasing awareness and concern for the environmental impact of their actions, and desire to locate alternatives. http://weddingforreal.blogspot.com/2011/01/wedding-rings-ethically-sourced-and.html

  • TNeal

    I’ve been thinking about your “Anatomy” post from a few days ago. I’ve responded more since you’ve offered the monthly comment challenge and offered a free book for those who tally the highest number of comments.

    This has both positive and negative ramifications.

    On the negative side, I’m disappointed in the monthly results. I don’t think I’ve come close to the top ten commentators (based on quantity alone). The competitor in me wants to show up.

    On the positive side, you draw me into a conversation and a community. The experience blesses me throughout the week. I enjoy reading people’s comments, thinking, and responding.

    I have more to say but I’ll save that for another comment slot. I’ve got to get my tally up.

    • http://michaelhyatt.com Michael Hyatt

      I am hoping the contest doesn’t just add quantity over quality, but that is one of the risks.

      Thanks for participating.

  • http://twitter.com/ThatGuyKC K.C. Pro

    I have noticed the commenting frequency of your monthly winners has increased dramatically since you first started the giveaway. Congrats!!

    Awesome! Glad to be on of the top commenters! haha… By the way, I haven’t been able to access your site for the past couple of days… I could only do it now because I entered it off of the google webcache. Just wanted to make sure it was onyl me and not the rest of your followers?

    • http://michaelhyatt.com Michael Hyatt

      Strange. Yours is the only complaint I have had. And my traffic is about the same as it is everyday.

  • @PaulSteinbrueck

    Holy Schnikes! I was hoping I might make the top 10. But those are some prolific commenter. Congrats to them.

    Michael, a few months ago when you started publishing your top 10 commenters each month you said you were going to make the plugin available at some point. Is it available yet?

    • http://michaelhyatt.com Michael Hyatt

      No, unfortunately, we haven’t had a chance to get back to it. We’ve had too many other pressing projects. It’s still on the list, though.

  • http://reflectionswithcoffee.com BettyMc

    My top post in January itself was a simple blog hop post answering two brief questions. Having photos of cats and kids helped. http://www.reflectionswithcoffee.com/2011/01/friday-blog-hop-january-14.html What bugs me is the huge white gap at the top of that post — I’ve tried everything short of deleting and re-writing it.

  • http://reflectionswithcoffee.com BettyMc

    Correction to what I said earlier. I finally figured out the stats. My top viewed post in January was a November review of Five Flavors of Dumb which won the ALA Schneider Family Award that month.
    http://www.reflectionswithcoffee.com/2010/11/review-five-flavors-of-dumb.html
    I was in Israel when a friend texted me that it had won, so I started cheering. Of course, the friends around me asked, “What’s going on?”

  • http://twitter.com/DanielBecerra Daniel Becerra

    “Why I stopped reading your blog” was by far my favorite. I am suprised the “Why I won’t retweet you” didn’t make the list :) Regardless, congratulations on the traffic increase, Michael! I also enjoyed the “Why I am still excited about Christian retailing” videos/post. I got a chance to see the Christ-follower Michael and not just the CEO Michael.

    Thanks for being a blessing!

    Thanks for giving away another book, Michael.

    For January, my top blog post was a post I created sharing my thoughts on MLK and sharing a few of my favorite quotes from him.

    The post was the most popular because I posted it live the morning of MLK Day, I think.

    Either way, lots of people seem to have found the post and I hope they found it beneficial. Thanks for sharing. :-)

      I post on MLK last year, and it did really well. I think there is real merit to tying in with the news or a special occasion.

    I’m the home of a blog carnival, so the carnival related posts always get a lot of traffic, so I’m discounting that.

    It depends which stats package you use. WordPress.com Stats tell me that Five Positives and Negatives of Creating a Paper.li Daily is my most visited post.

    Google analytics, on the other hand, says it’s You Can’t Do That!

    I think those were the top posts simply because of their titles!

    PS I’m probably one of the top ten commenters on tentblogger.com, so if you could convince John to do a similar giveaway…. :-)

    Yea, thanks for taking the time to add all the links to everyone. Really enjoying the content, even the oldies that keep popping up.

    This was my January post w/the most traffic. It was the beginning of a 7-day play-by-play review of a lap book kit I won and created with my 5 yr. old PDD-NOS son. Each day I sent the link to the company founder. I think she sent this one out in an email newsletter or mentioned in a forum of some kind and that’s why it got so many hits.
