Yesterday, I gave you my top 10 favorite Brainzooming blog posts for 2010. It prompted me to look at the most viewed articles for 2010 on Here are those which received the most page views throughout the year:

10. “Taking the NO Out of Business InNOvation” 10 NO’s Blocking Business Innovation

A couple of notes about the posts:

  • 8 of the top 10 are list posts. This provides support for the oft-heard advice that putting a number in a blog title increases the attention it gets.
  • 4 of the 10 are social media-related. That's significant, but somehow, I thought it would be an even higher number.
  • Six are related to innovation or creativity. I've been concerned that the blog may be veering too far from its original subject parameters of strategy, creativity, and innovation. This suggests to me it hasn't strayed as much as I'd suspected.
  • Finally, only one of the top 10 (#4) made my list of favorites, and it would have been number 10 if I'd ordered them by preference. Interestingly, my favorites always tend to be story-focused. This list looks a lot more like the lesson oriented and how-to based posts I consider the heart of Brainzooming.

Again, thanks for reading and let me know what thoughts you have on this list or future content directions! – Mike Brown
