Of all the top 10 blog posts of 2011 I loved How To Value Social Media Traffic. I admit, I didn’t get to read a lot of your posts but of all that I did I think this was the best for me personally. I loved the infographic and how detailed that post was. I also learned a lot about social media and how it can be beneficial to me and my craft. It is always good to find good content where you can learn a valuable thing or two from another. I am looking forward to more informative posts from you for 2012! Cheers!
I like many of the blog posts from your website of which I love the posts t9 & t1 from top 10 and b2 & b3 from bottom 10. They have impressed me a lot.
