1. Neat idea! With my own content, I also noticed the bit about evergreen posts. My highest blog hits are still from 2011, and they were for items that seem to be search a lot: one was asking about iCloud and Blackberries, which is now moot since I got an iPhone, and the other was about the Roman Missal. I don’t get a whole lot of shout outs from other blogs, though I have had a few retweets from people with a lot of followers – thanks to all of you!

    And among my most popular posts were those that included audio or video – so I definitely agree with the sentiment about including photos / more than just text!

    And I’ve been trying to take some risks (the video production is a big one for me). It’s been slowly paying off so far. :-)

    Thanks so much for your blog & for the food for thought!

    • Hey Fr. Darryl! How encouraging that your multi-media posts are ranking high. I’d say that’s confirmation from the Holy Spirit to keep at it! It’s certainly not for everyone, so I’m glad it’s working well for you. You are using media very well as an evangelization tool. Thanks for your dedication.

  2. What a great idea! Your post made me look through our 2012 posts on
    Of Sound Mind and Spirit
    . I was a bit surprised about the top 10 from 2012, in a good way. One of our most popular new posts for the year was a very personal one about Prayer from Shelly. But 2 of the top were guest posts by our Dad, so I’m sure he’ll be thrilled when I tell him. Thanks for the great idea. I think I’ll go blog about it. :-)

    • You have a great list, Lisa! What great insight about how the posts centered on faith have done well even though you’ve been more comfortable and apt to write about politics. Nudge from the Holy Spirit, eh? I neglected to mention that 3 of our top 10 were also guest posts. Thanks for pointing that out about your dad’s posts (Go Dads Go!). Thanks for linking up, too.
