Might be gaining a bit of traction in ye ol’ Blogosphere

There are two widgets in our left side-bar that give perspective, too:

“Top Posts & Pages” shows a weekly window on visitor behavior.

“Top Tags” acts like a Subject Index.

But, I do like to, every so often, go to the Statistics and show the all-time top posts and pages.

So, for any blog newbies, “Posts” are the individual articles ( like this one :-) and “Pages” are Special Posts, of which there are 8, on the black tabs with white text at the top of the blog

I’m going to list the top 20 posts over the time period from January 1st, 2011 till today. The numbers in the list are “Visits”

First, let me tell you that there are a few Pages mixed in there. I started to list them here but decided it was too complicated—you can tell you’re on a “Page” when there’s no date under the title

It would be greatly appreciated, since the top Posts and Pages are an indication of reader activity, if you could give your opinion about this list in the Comments.

The titles of the Posts and Pages aren’t my normal Purple but they are  links which will open the listing in a new tab or window so you don’t lose this post :-)

    Your top posts list doesn’t surprise me Alexander, especially your top three. Some of your posts that didn’t make the list surprise me, especially those informative ones on self publishing. What are your favorite posts to write?
