So every Christmas time I do a series of blog posts basically called Bods's Review of the Year where I do a Top 20 of popular blog posts of the year. And I ummed and ah'd about it this year as I wasn't entirely sure whether to bother or not, but I thought, stuff it. I don't actually care if anyone else is interested cos I am. So I fired up Google Analytics and took a look. And I realised, Houston, I have a problem.

So as there's nothing really to do in January, I thought I'd take that chance to sort out my inbox and answer all the emails that have been building up over the last twelve months!
Last year I did a little Chart table to show the views of archive posts have changed over the years. It was fun in a "I like pointless stats" kind of way. So I decided to do it again.
Now it's time to look at which of the older posts have cut the mustard over the last twelve months!
And here's the all important top 10!
