Top Blog Posts from The Social Media Hat for 2014
2014 was a fantastic year for The Social Media Hat. And for me personally. It likely comes as no surprise that I'm most proud of the publishing of my first book, and the reception it received. And that's evidenced by the interest in the announcement blog post, as you can see below.
But I'm also proud of some very specific posts and articles on which I worked hard to craft into valuable resources, and that hard work paid off. My resource on optimizing your LinkedIn profile, The Ultimate Guide to the Perfect LinkedIn Profile, has become my most trafficked blog post each day. And resources like Social Media Active Users by Network and The Complete Social Media Cover Photo Guide continue to be updated and appreciated by you, my faithful readers.
So today's post and Top Ten list is as much a testament to you as it is to me. You've provided me with feedback and questions and, most importantly, your time and attention. These are the articles from 2014 that you and others like you valued the most.
This past year has also been a year of experimentation for me. I've tried different kinds of blog posts, different publishing schedules... different topics and more. This has enabled me to better understand where I can excel, and where you can benefit! Next year you can expect more of the kinds of articles listed below, to be sure.
So thank you, and here's to a Happy New Year!
