The time to look back and to look forward.
Let’s start by looking back, shall we? It’s always interesting to see what blogposts got the most attention and, if you haven’t read them yet, see what all the fuss was about.
The best read blogposts of 2014
So I present you the 3 best read blogposts of 2014:
3. “The difference a picture makes”
At number 3 we have ‘The difference a picture makes’. This blog is all about pictures and images and what it can do for your website or blog.
2. “A good marketeer is nothing like pinocchio”
Marketeers are liars. There is actually a book like that by Seth Godin (All Marketers Are Liars: The Underground Classic That Explains How Marketing Really Works–and Why Authenticity Is the Best Marketing of All (affiliate link)) where of course he explains why marketeers shouldn’t tell lies but tell stories. And in my blogpost I talk about the same thing. How great marketeers shouldn’t lie. It was almost the best read post of this year.
1. “Should I have a blog plan, blog calendar or editorial calendar?”
However the top post of this year is about blogging and the difference between blog plans, blog calendars and editorial calendars. There is a lot of interest in blogging (as there should be) and I promise to definitely write more blogs about blogs in 2015.
The best shared of 2014
That list of best read blogs is lovely. However the list of best shared is quite differently than the best read, which is why I added the best shared list as well:
3. “How to act when you’re in a bad mood”
The third place is for a blog I wrote when I saw some people react badly because of a bad mood. It can happen to us all but you shouldn’t communicate when in a bad mood. So I gave some tips how to lose your bad mood.
2. “Craft blogs turn lucrative” & “The difference a picture makes”
The second place is a tie with ‘The difference a picture makes’, which also can be found in the ‘best read’ category, and ‘Craft blogs turn lucrative’, a very recent blog I wrote about how blogging can be lucrative for your business.
1. “How to write on Twitter”
The best shared post discusses the best ways to write on Twitter. It was really popular on LinkedIn actually that had the same amount of shares as Twitter and Facebook combined.
While the best read are from the beginning of the year the most shared posts are from later this year. Why? Since the earlier posts had more time to attract visitors and the later posts had more people seeing it immediately and sharing it.
What do you feel was the best blog this year? Or what was your favorite topic? Let me know in the comments below and I will use your feedback for the blogs in 2015.
