2012 Year in Review

So here we are, the end of another year and while I don’t blog for a living, I try to be serious enough about it that stats matter. Plus it’s fascinating to see how the year pans out in my blog. Here’s some interesting info for a year in review.

The busiest day I had this year was 706 visitors, mainly to visit my post about The Thankful Tree. It’s an older post, but having a quick idea on how to make one I think helps get people interested in it.  That and I believe there is a band or something called the Thankful Tree as well. 8^D

That said, here are the top five posts based on views I had this year. Interestingly enough most of them were the same as before, with one new entry to the mix:

Soup to Nuts: Creating a Timeout Notifier in ASP.Net using AJAX Toolkit or jQuery

With more and more jQuery development going on, this one is on the rise.

How to Sort/Find Custom Objects in a List with VB.Net

Creating your own objects is quite helpful, especially if you can add them to a list collection and be able to sort it. I’ve “dog fooded” this one myself a couple of times this year.

Windows Server 2003 64bit, IIS 6 32bit, ASP.Net 4 Framework, and Targeting

This one is still a hat tip to my buddy Ben. It turns out people are still having issues with this one.

Quick Tip: How to use OnClick and OnClientClick events to Prevent Double Clicking on your ASP.Net Buttons

I wrote this one back in July after discovering a bug we were having with users double clicking submission buttons and causing duplicate entries in the database. I’ve had to use this one a couple of times and it seems to be  a common problem for folks

…and still the #1 post for a couple of years running now is

How to swap faces using Windows Live Photo Gallery

I was always baffled at how cool this trick was but hard to find. I guess other folks were having the same issues too. I still get comments and questions about it.

So thank you, loyal readers, for another year of blogging. I hope to be more frequent in MMXIII with blogging and plan to keep it diverse. I might even look into merging my photo and quote blog in, to create a kind of “full pictures” of my interests.

Is there anything you’ve been curious for me to blog about? I’d love to hear it! Take care and keep reading!

  1. It’s all way over my head. Way over. I feel so far behind. I’m messing around with wordpress and not doing well. I remembered that you’re a WP guru and decided to snoop around. I see why people pay for web development, lol. I hope you and the fam are doing great. ;)

    1. Thanks dude! Glad you stopped by. Don’t worry about the way over my head stuff, that’s all geek stuff that helps me when I’m stuck.

      I hope your fam is doing great too! I’m no WP Guru, but I’ll definitely help you get up and running should you decide!

What are your 10 bits on the matter? I want to know!
