Before we bid adieu to 2011, let’s take a look at the most popular posts in The Savvy Freelancer for 2011.
This list is based on the number of page views, as well as the number of comments on each post. I didn’t use any scientific formula, so you’ll just have to take my word for it.
Most Popular Polls
I published a number of polls for freelancers in 2011, and these three topped the list in terms of readership and engagement:
This question resonated with many Savvy Freelancer readers — which goes to show mistakes do help us learn and become better freelancers.
Understandably popular — who doesn’t want to dream about what they’re getting for Christmas? This will be a yearly tradition at The Savvy Freelancer from now on.
Who knew freelancers had such a wide variety of preferences when it came to communicating with clients?
I was surprised by how strongly readers responded to this question.
Most Popular Guest Posts
Readers enjoyed this guest post from LinkedIn expert, Lewis Howes. And why not? It’s full of practical advice for using LinkedIn to find clients.
Savvy Freelancer reader Chris Vanasdalan wrote this piece for the blog — and attracted plenty of readers. Send us another post soon, Chris!
This guest post from writer Thursday Bram is a personal favorite of mine as well. I used her advice immediately.
Most Popular Productivity Posts
Aside from home office decluttering tips, I also shared a photo of my own home office in this post (disclaimer: Said home office is no longer as neat as portrayed in the post).
Granted, this post has links to excellent posts and articles to help freelancers stay motivated. However, I am fully convinced what made this post popular is the cat picture.
Readers liked this post about the signs and symptoms of burnout, and what to do when you’re experiencing them.
Most Popular Management Posts
Strictly speaking, this is not a post, but a sign-up page for my webinar with Steve Slaunwhite. The high number of page views shows this topic is relevant to you, my readers. If you missed the webinar, you can still sign up to get access to the recording.
Another wish-list type of post. Obviously, freelancers like to dream and aspire for great things.
The title explains it all.
Most Popular Marketing Post
In which I show my very first freelancing business card. (Admit it, you’re a bunch of curious cats)
Most Popular Personal Post
Quite possibly the only personal post I published in 2011, and this attracted a high number of comments.
