hwtk top posts 2012

I’m looking through my statistics for the year to see what my top posts this year were, in terms of traffic. It’s always interesting to see what really did well. I’m not counting posts from previous years that are still generating traffic in this roundup, although perhaps I should. I’ll also add on a couple personal favorites at the end that for whatever reason didn’t take off very well, whether due to time or some other factor. After all, newer posts are at a big disadvantage.

This also has to do only with the blog, not other pages on this site. It is perhaps not surprising that my work at home jobs page has the most visitors on this site.
