It is helpful for blog authors to reflect on what readers have found most interesting in 2012 to help sculpt a tone for the upcoming year. While there are a number of ways to "value" a piece of writing (most page views vs. number of comments, for instance) stories that recieve the largest numbers of page views probably reflect the posts of most interest to readers since their content is not only read but shared with others.
Here were my five most-read posts from 2012:
#1: DOJ Hands Heart Rhythm Society and Hospitals Its Decision on Defibrillators
#2: The Growing Culture of Hostile Dependency Toward Caregivers
#3: How A Sudden Cardiac Arrest Survivor Handles the World Cup
#4: The DSM-Tw: Handbook of Twitter Personality Types
#5: EKG Du Jour #29: Tangoing with Two
As you can see, news, fun, and EKGs continue to dominate.
Thanks to all of you who drop by this site. May each of you have a healthy and Happy New Year in 2013!
