I upload numerous posts to my blog each week. Some get lots of comments while others, well let's just say there's an echo. Sometimes, people prefer to send me private emails, all of which I read and enjoy because they help me know what matters to you so I can focus my blogging efforts on things that you will most enjoy and benefit from. Thanks for the love!
Beginning this month, I'm starting to share the most popular blog posts from the prior month. This will be a great way for me to monitor and summarize popular topics, and you can also use the information to decide what to write about at your blog. Summarizing popular posts also allows me to highlight the most popular posts for people who are too busy (and I know that's everyone …) to read a new post each time it's added.
Here are the 3 most popular Indie Business Blog posts of May 2008, based on comments and discussion here and at other social sites where I cross post.
- The New Family Business: Nine Reasons Why Home-Based Business Ownership Works For Parents. This post seemed to really hit a nerve with young women who are considering marriage and family. I think more and more young parents will see business ownership as a necessity, not an option.
- Indie Confidential: Prepare For 5 Indie Business Pitfalls. This post covers things that most business experts don't comment much on. The most popular aspect of this post seemed to revolve around my common that, in business, "your spouse or significant other may not support you." Ouch.
- Who to Follow On Twitter: If Susie Asked You To Jump Off a Bridge, Would You? this post is all about how to use Twitter efficiently and effectively. Who wants to follow Twitters who are not actually tweeting? And who wants to spend all day tweeting? Not me, and apparently not a lot of you either!
