As with previous year-end lists, lists predominate: 8 of the posts are obvious numbered lists, and number 2 is also a list, although it doesn’t feature a number in the title. I’m not sure how that slipped by!

In terms of subjects, five are on strategic thinking and planning, two cover social media, two address branding, and one is a guest post from Woody Bendle. The heavy emphasis on strategy and the other topics, interestingly, reflect our business mix for 2013. I’m not sure if that’s blogging reflecting business or vice versa.
