Top 12 Blogs of the Year 2011

I always look at my analytics of my blog on a regular basis to see what triggered certain blogs to go viral, which blogs had the most comments, what topics were most popular and did I cover them sufficiently.

I write this blog daily, but I realize some of you only have time to read the headline and then say, “I’ll come back to that when I have more time,” and then that time never comes.

So if that’s the case or in case you caught on to this blog late in the year, here’s a look back at the past year and the top 12 blogs (based on # of views) that you might want to catch. Below that are my 3 favorites that I think deserve a second look!

  2. 7 Things Nonprofits Can Talk About on Facebook Besides Themselves – this went viral due to the content and (probably) the sassy headline.
