As the end of another year approaches, it’s common to look back to see what you’ve accomplished and body of digital content you’ve created. If you blog on a regular basis, you’ll see how much content you’ve published. It’s a good exercise for finding trends and learning about your readers.
I spent some time looking over the social marketing articles my guest bloggers and I have published in 2013. I looked at traffic, comments and social shares to determine the top ten blog posts in 2013.
- 3 posts included videos from my Adventures in Visibility Hangouts on Air (HOA)
