2011 Greatest Hits
We write a lot of blog posts for Business Notes from Roundpeg. We average eight to ten posts a week, on topics we think small business owners will care about: marketing, social media, networking, web design, strategy and team building. Some posts are serious and some are informative, some of the posts are sentimental and others are rants.
Each of the members of Roundpeg writes posts from time to time and we regularly invite guests to join us as well. The blending of our different voices has created a blog which really represents who we are as a company.
We watch our statistics to see which posts get the most traffic and conversation. There are always a few surprises, like the little posts we thought were “throw aways” that generate lots of interaction. Here is a list of the most popular posts we have added to the blog this year. Notice how many different authors have content in our top ten.
