Top 10 Hits and Misses for 2011
This marks my one year anniversary for the blog that is my aggregation of all the blogs I webmaster for. I didn’t expect much because I don’t promote it. It’s used as a location potential agents, publishers, clients can get an overview of what I’ve written. As a result, I’m curious to see which of the many threads drew the most readers.
Here are the top 10 posts for the year 2011:
- Click the Square; Create Music (my tech blog)
- How Did Homo erectus Differ as a Species 800,000 ya? (my science blog)

Ask a Tech Teacher got the most views, though not resoundingly. I like that the Book Reviews came in #5. I love writing those, but they don’t seem to get as much traffic as other posts.
