I am terrible at guessing what readers are going to be interested in. Usually I don’t try. I write for myself, whatever seems interesting to me at the time. I am grateful that anyone wants to read it. I’m always surprised, though, by what does get read the most… what’s socially shared… what people keep coming back to over and over.
I may do a different list later of what I think mattered most. I’d love to hear what posts were the most important or useful to you.
In the meantime I’ve had a look at the data….
