I like to always keep an eye on my blog statistics to see what people are linking to, which posts are getting comments, and what posts get read the most. This helps me better understand what people like or dislike in topics that I cover.

I have always known that some subjects get twice as many readers as other topics, and some posts rarely even rate a blip in the top 20. Not that readers are the only reasons I write, but it is nice to know your subscribers are interested.

So, here’s the results of my research, here’s the top 5 most viewed posts on my blog from each month, from January until now.

I hope you find these as interesting as I did, and a chance to read some old posts of mine too! There’s some interesting trends in the last six months – my poke the fun at Web2.0posts appear to be the most popular, followed by the fact that many posts take a month to even appear in the top 5 at all.

That last rated post for January is very pertinent too – Placing value on your blog discusses what to watch when determining your blogs worth. Has much changed in the six months since?
