One year on, which are the most popular posts?
I thought I’d do a quick round-up of the most viewed posts during the first year of this blog.
According to WordPress, this is the 83rd post, which makes an average of about 1.5 a week. I’d like to write more often but don’t always have the time. Thankfully now that this blog is on Twitter it is easy to put something out there quickly without having to draft a full post.
Anyway, here are the top ten posts according to number of views:
- From Runaway Girl to Silversmiths
Written one week after Gordon Ramsay recorded the TV programme (but five months before it was broadcast)
- Free wi-fi hotspots in Sheffield city centre
I started logging free wi-fi locations in the city last year, although the launch of wifi-in-sheffield.co.uk in January has probably already superceded this
- City of Sheffield walkabout – a photo tour
Photographs comparing Sheffield in 2008 to the city as featured in a 1970s council brochure
- Cocoa chocolate shop
Documenting a visit to this Eccy Road treasure
- Sheffield Twitter users
Ever-expanding list of organisations, groups and companies from Sheffield on Twitter
- Date for cooling towers demolition confirmed
In terms of page views, August was one of the most popular months on this blog, no doubt in part due to the passing of the cooling towers
- Sheffield City on the move video from The Fully Monty
The full version of the 1970s promotional film used at the start of the hit movie appears online
- The day Sheffield stood still
Report and videos from Sheffield’s first-ever large-scale flash mob
- Sheffield to London by train
Some thoughts on a journey that I have had the joy of completing many a time, written a few months after Midland Mainline handed over the franchise to East Midlands Trains
- The Moor, Sheffield
A look at the long-overdue and continued redevelopment of one of Sheffield’s pedestrianised shopping streets
What does the next year hold for this blog? Luckily there is still more going on in Sheffield than could ever be covered here, so I don’t see any reason why there shouldn’t be plenty more posting, tweeting and perhaps some more videos.
As I mentioned above the bigger issue is making time to create the content, so if anyone would anyone be interested in contributing posts then let me know. I’ve also got one or two other ideas for directions that it could go in, so watch this space.
In the meantime, if you have got any comments or suggestions then get in touch.
