To find out which posts are the most popular is surprisingly tricky. There are different ways of assessing what is going on with blogs, and they all give different results. The measure I have used is from “Feedburner” which tracks the people who have subscribed to my blog. This means they get sent a copy of each post that I do. Feedburner keeps track of which posts get read the most by those who subscribe.
These are my most popular posts since the blog started, according to Feedburner. This gives some bias to the older posts (they have been around longer and so more people have had the chance to read them). However it is the best guide I know. Here are the results.
All my most popular posts are about the psychological and emotional aspects of health.
The most popular is Laziness (a.k.a. Wisdom?) quickly followed by How to Listen to Someone. This is closely followed by The Past Can Make You Ill and my review of a blog on the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator.
Next, I’m pleased to say, comes my free report It’s Not About Success. This is quite a lengthy document with heaps of exercises to do. It is my overall guide to self-development. I’m very pleased that it is so popular.
After these top five there is a group of ten. This includes two blog reviews, A Blog for Introverts (and others too), and A Fabulous Blog About Psychotherapy: Psychology, Philosophy and Real Life. (This is a little embarrassing as I am now doing some writing on Psychology, Philosophy and Real Life – but I wasn’t at the time the post was written.)
It also has two about what I have learned from my favourite form of psychotherapy – gestalt. Less Stress and More Energy from Finishing With The Past and Awareness Cures.
The other six are a mixed bag. ,Two Ways to Experience a Wider Range of Feelings, Being Negative About Being Negative, Your Neighbour and Yourself: which first?, Our Thoughts Are Powerful But Not All-Powerful, Three Steps to a New Life and Flood this Body Part with Goodness.
After this the other posts just slowly become less popular. If you want to explore my blog in depth I have done a page that gives an overall view called Start Here.
