I started doing these “Best of” recaps back in 2010. I don’t blog nearly as often as I’d like to but I really do enjoy looking back at these year-in-review posts. It’s always interesting to see what posts make the list and to see if there are posts that prevail through the years.

#1 – Talk About an Unprofessional LinkedIn Response
LinkedIn is a powerful networking tool for professionals. Sadly, there are some like Cleveland’s Kelly Blazek who forget the ‘professional’ piece of this social network.
I wrote 46 posts this past year which while up 1 from last year, still falls short of my unofficial goal of once per week. My productivity is down as in 2012 I knocked out 56 and in 2011 I was writing at an amazing clip of 75 posts. I’ll try to do a much better job in 2015 as there’s a LOT on my mind and now I’ve got the blog sitting on a MUCH better host.
