It’s been a big year for the Better Life Coaching Blog.

The amount of traffic has increased fivefold this year, the number of subscribers continues to increase and I’m excited about the year ahead.

Here are the most popular posts for the year.  These aren’t necessarily my best posts, but they are the ones that have been viewed the most.

So here are my top 10 most popular posts of 2011:

1.  50 Great Coaching Questions

2.  The Emperor’s Seed – A Story About Integrity

3.  The Donkey in the Well – A Story of Persistence

4.  Sharpening the Saw – A Story About Continued Development

5.  Always Take the High Road

6.  5 Tips For Your First Day at Work

7.  What Can We Learn From Ants?

8.  Buying Time – A Story For All Busy Parents

9.  Brilliant Quotes – Persistence

10.  Three Feet From Gold – A Story About Perseverance

This makes an interesting comparison with last year’s list, with a few posts reappearing and the top two posts swapping places.

Stories continue to be popular, making up half of the top 10.  I started writing a few original stories this year and the feedback has been positive, so I’ll keep trying to come up with ideas.

My About Darren page would have made it into the top 10 as well, but I chose to keep it out for the purpose of this exercise.

Thanks to everyone who has supported the blog this year.  I value everyone who has visited, subscribed, commented or shared this website.
