Awards and honorable mentions for having high numbers of views and/or comments on a post.
RLF Gems. 

I’m pleased to report the status for March 2012 for the RLF blog. Winners this month topped the highest hits we’ve had since the blog began. This is in part due to Triberr, which helps deliver blog content to Twitter, and to the various networking apps such as Networked Blogs, Linky Followers, and Google Friend Connect. But the two top reasons for the success of these posts is good content, and the efforts of the guest blogger to share the site with others. For that, I’m grateful.

Here are the top five posts, in order of total hits. Click the link to visit the post.

1. Jason Aaron Baca – Interview

This is the second in a series of posts about the “Top Hits” on this website, who draws readers, and what types of articles are the most read.

I’ll list them in order of “page loads” — the number assigned by StatCounter.com via a small html/java script on this page.

Not surprisingly, the top post of the month of February was the first “RLF Gems.” I won’t list it in the top five below, which has two entries at the number four spot in a tie.

#1 Victoria Lynne – With This Kiss (Book Release)

Ever wondered who and what brings people to a blog? When you post somewhere, do you wish you could see your stats? If you post here, and you want to know what your stats are for the time you were visiting, email me and I’ll let you know. I download a monthly spreadsheet with the basic info every month.

I thought I’d start sharing some of that info. This is minus the numbers, because those are private, but here are the top five posts for 2011, and for 2012 so far, and who posted them. Links are provided to the top posts so you can go back and take another look if you want to know made them unique. Each will open in a new window so you can read and then come back.

I’ll be posting these on a regular basis. They are presented In order of page loads.
