Most-viewed blog entries of 2012 (thanks Charlie!)

This post is more than 2 years old.

Ok, I'll admit it. I'm not afraid to steal a good idea when I see it. Earlier today Charlie Arehart posted his top ColdFusion blog entries for the year. I thought that was a great idea and figured I'd share it as well. Interestingly enough, none of my top ten is ColdFusion-related. They are almost entirely PhoneGap-related (with jQuery Mobile being the other top topic).

How about a top 10 CF list?

I don't have stats for that. (Ok, I could write the SQL, but i'm being lazy. ;)

These results look right. Most of ColdFusion is familiar to the current user base. PhoneGap and jQuery are pulling in a great number of new users. So doesn't this reflect the natural state of who would be googling for information and come to read a blog post?

Big question, what community platform building information would draw people to read blog posts? I have some ideas for this year on that topic. :)

What do you mean when you say, "community platform building information"?

Ooh, that's a good idea! Made me curious about my most popular posts too...
