Yesterday, I gave you my top 10 favorite Brainzooming blog posts for 2010. It prompted me to look at the most viewed articles for 2010 on Brainzooming.com. Here are those which received the most page views throughout the year:

1. 7 Extreme Creativity Lessons from “Cake Boss”

2. Social Media Productivity – 13 Tips to Maximize Your Time

3. Creative Block? 26 Ways to Get Your Brainzooming When Creativity Is Blocked

4. 6 Social Media Metrics You Should Be Tracking

5. 16 Creative Ways to Supercharge Presentations

6. 16 Social Media Tactics for Building an Audience

7. Innovation Metrics – A Whole Brain Strategy

8. The Value of Brainstorming for Innovative Business Ideas

9. 20 Strategies for Making Your Solo Social Media Effort More Successful

10. “Taking the NO Out of Business InNOvation” 10 NO’s Blocking Business Innovation

A couple of notes about the posts:

  • 8 of the top 10 are list posts. This provides support for the oft-heard advice that putting a number in a blog title increases the attention it gets.
  • 4 of the 10 are social media-related. That’s significant, but somehow, I thought it would be an even higher number.
  • Six are related to innovation or creativity. I’ve been concerned that the blog may be veering too far from its original subject parameters of strategy, creativity, and innovation. This suggests to me it hasn’t strayed as much as I’d suspected.
  • Finally, only one of the top 10 (#4) made my list of favorites, and it would have been number 10 if I’d ordered them by preference. Interestingly, my favorites always tend to be story-focused. This list looks a lot more like the lesson oriented and how-to based posts I consider the heart of Brainzooming.

Again, thanks for reading and let me know what thoughts you have on this list or future content directions! – Mike Brown

    Wow, another year full of blogging. You are hard-core! Well done.

    I for one appreciate the mix of tips and stories, but prefer stories. Your story about imagining becoming the senior at mass in the morning is still memorable. Lists don’t linger like that. Hmmm, creative writing idea: how about a story written as a list?

    Happy New Year, Mike!

      Thank you Dave for your loyal and dedicated readership….and your encouragement (permission) earlier in the year to NOT blog every day! For a variety of reasons, I did keep up daily blogging since it felt like the stakes were getting greater for keeping it up. In a lot of ways, it’s become more manageable with the recent posts on social media productivity springing from continually looking for ways to get more efficient.

      One confession, I’m ashamed to say I abandoned the daily walk to church in the late summer/early fall. Between having more meetings earlier in the day as the business grew, less favorable temperatures, and yes, spending more time on the computer before church, I’m now back to leaving the house 5 minutes before church and driving there. The lady who inspired the post is still walking though, so at least the inspiration is still there to get back on the program!

      I like the idea of a story-based list. That’s definitely in the mix for 2011!

      Happy New Year Dave, and I look forward to the opportunity to work with you again on BMA this year!
