2009 In Review
Beginning tomorrow, I’m going to run a series of nine posts, the 9 top posts from 2009- isn’t that original?Â I looked back over the last 12 months, and selected the posts I had written that had received either the most hits or the most discussion and interest, and selected 9. The 9 and not necessarily 9 individual posts. Several will reflect a theme or topic that seems to be big, such as Marriage Equality. Rather than simply repost the original, I’ll provide links back to the original, and some comments about how the subject now. Have my ideas changed from when I first wrote about it?
I’m ranking these from 9 to the number 1 at the top, although I’ve taken a bit of liberty with some of the rankings. My readership has grown so much over the past 12 months, that I can’t just go by number of hits. Last January, 50 visitors to my blog on a day would have been great, and today, that would be very low. So, a story earlier in the year could have drawn far more attention even though the total number of hits were low. I’ve also made an editorial decision, NOT to consider same-sex marriage as the most important story of the year. (Shock!) I’ll say more about my reasoning when I post on that. So, in the end the rankings were based on a several weighted criteria. I’ll also follow the 9 posts with a poll so that you can rank the 9 stores- what order of importance would you give them?
I’ll start 2010 with a post of 10 predictions for 2010 (again, original, I know). I have no crystal ball, but these ideas will reflect what I think we can look forward to in the coming year, or things I feel we should be looking towards.
Thank you very much for being a part of ThomasCWaters.com over the past year, and here’s looking for another great year!
