bloggingHappy New Year everyone!

We closed 2019 talking about the importance of setting personal and professional goals for 2020 and I want to start 2020 with an analysis of the best posts of 2019 and why. 

I do this every year and it helps me plan the content that I should be creating in the new year based on the popularity of past posts. 

At the end of the day, I write to share my knowledge with you but I also want to ensure that what I write is of value to you as my readers. 

So let's get started. 

Top 10 Blog Posts Written in 2019 Based on Traffic

I'm delighted to see a post about Inbound PR at the top for 2019. I won't lie to you, it's been hard to drive traffic to a brand new term that I developed through my book Inbound PR.

What I'm also very happy about is that three posts about project management have made it to the top 10. Project management is my latest passion that I want to keep writing about and seeing that you're interested in it, confirms the need to continue expanding on this topic. 

Now let's take a look at the all-time best blog posts based on traffic since I started this blog in 2012. I've added the total views as I think they speak volumes. 

All-time Top 10 Blog Posts Based on Traffic

What all of this tells me is that the evergreen posts I've written years ago still keep on performing very well and most of them get their traffic from organic search so if I give them a new push on social media, that'll drive even more traffic to my blog.

What's also interesting are the topics themselves - a lot of them are related to personal development and interpersonal skills and many are infographics which have performed very well through Pinterest as well so I'll try to expand on these and create some new infographics, possibly around project management.

Which post from the above was your favourite?
