What type of articles do you like to share on social media?
Happy New Year everyone! Last week, we shared with you about our top 10 most visited articles of 2014. Today, we are sharing our top 10 most shared articles in 2014.
This is the first year we have produced a list like this, and it has been great reviewing and analyzing it.
Benefits to Looking Back
Similar to looking back at our top 10 most visited articles, looking back at our top 10 most shared encourages a feeling of accomplishment.
Another great reason to look back on the top articles of 2014 is to find out what is working for your blog. These lists help to answer what type of articles people are sharing and reading.
Then, taking a look at the articles and asking yourself questions like; what about this article was so share worthy? Was it the picture, the catchy title, fantastic friends and tribe? Is there a common theme among the top 10?
These are questions I’m asking myself as I look into what topics I want to cover going forward this year.
