Most-viewed #ColdFusion blog entries of 2012

As the year comes to a close, many bloggers take a moment to document the most-viewed entries of the year on their blog. In that spirit, here are the top-viewed entries of the year for my blog.

I have more to say about the list (and such lists) below, but for those who like to "get to the point", here's the list:

About these sort of lists

I'm always torn about any such "top-viewed" lists. For one thing, they tend to be self-perpetuating: people see the list, and may click the links, which raises the count. Then, too, it doesn't really take into account which entries have been there nearly all year vs those posted perhaps only recently.

But hey, it's what people do, and if it helps someone perhaps find an entry they may otherwise have missed (with so many blogs and tweets out there in the community), then that would be a good thing.

About this list

The count shown is static, as of today. And while I realize the numbers are small compared to other mega-CF-bloggers out there, hey, I don't see this as competition. It's all just about helping others learn as we go.

As for my use of #coldfusion in the title here, that's admittedly to help increase the likelihood of the entry being spotted on twitter, at least for those following the #coldfusion hashtag, when news of the entry is posted there from various aggregators. I've started doing that recently for all my CF-based blog entries, which I hope helps people spot them. But in the case of the list above, these are in fact all CF-based entries, as indeed pretty much all my entries are.

Of course, there are many more entries that didn't make the list, which may still interest readers--and some that I think are very important, but maybe others didn't! Or maybe some that came out "too late for Oscar consideration". :-)

Considering that, I think I'll put out another entry listing all the entries from the past year (update: done now, here). Again, perhaps someone may find something there they've missed that could be helpful. That's always the goal.

Hope everyone has a happy new year!

This is a good idea Charlie! I see it inspired Ray Camden to post his list:

and it also made me curious about my own top posts:

Cool to hear, Sean. Thanks for the update, and glad to have started that ball rolling. Hey, it's my first meme, I guess!

Well, as I acknowledge in the entry, I did get the idea from seeing others doing it in various communities over the years. But hey, if this kick starts a process of reflection and recall for the CF, er, CFML community, glad to have had a hand in it! :-)
