Our Hive Strategies team has been busy writing – and thinking – this year. This is our 186th blogpost in 2011.

I’m a big fan of blogging – even when I’m not doing it as consistently as I’d like. It helps me shape and test my ideas in ways that nothing else quite does. And writing a really good blogpost, one that I feel passionate about, feels so satisfying.

Our team has covered a lot of territory this year. Some of our blogs are practical, some inspirational, some informational and some even incredulous. There is a lot of information on this site.

Which blogposts did our readers read?

But which blogposts really resonated with our readers?

This year 12,000+ people have visited our site, and a review of Google analytics tells us which blogposts they read the most. I realize that the fact that someone read a blogpost doesn’t mean it was his or her favorite, or even the most popular. But it is at least a way to measure interest.

Here are our readers’ top 10 visited blogposts for 2011:
