WordPress sends out “blogging highlights” at the end of each calendar year. Feed Yard Foodie saw 79,000 views in 2014 over the course of 94 new posts. My longstanding goal is to get two blog posts up a week — I didn’t miss that by too much (average of 1.8 over the course of the year).
Perhaps the most interesting to me is to see which blog posts get the most “reads” and are earmarked as the most popular posts of the year. Sometimes these align with my own personal favorite posts, and sometimes they do not.
The below five posts are the most popular of the year determined by statistics…
On a personal note, the following posts are my favorites for 2014…
I also have a personal affinity toward the most viewed post of the year (5 Lessons that I want my children to learn before going to college).
This post came from a deep part of me as I struggled with a difficult situation. Honestly, I wrote it as a way to achieve personal balance. I was pleasantly surprised that so many others identified with it. This post ended up being as close to a viral post as Feed Yard Foodie achieved in 2014.
Do you have a favorite FYF post for 2014?
If so, please share — I am always interested in which posts you all enjoy reading.
A special thank you to each and every one of you for taking the time to read my posts and share a part of your lives in 2014.
I am starting off 2015 speaking at Kansas State University this week, so I am headed down to Manhattan, KS to visit all of you Wildcat fans 🙂
