The year 2011 was my first full year as a Microsoft blue-badge.

In looking back on all my blog stats, I unraveled a humorous irony as to what became my number one blog post of the year.  Would the top blog of the year have something to do with HTML5?  Would it be regarding a technical article?  Would it be a blog post that stirred heated discussions?  Would the top spot be a post of free resources such as online videos?  Nope. Stay tuned… the number one blog post is revealed at the end. 

For now, please join me in a walk down memory lane as I reveal my five most popular blog posts in descending order:

 

5 Camtasia Recorder Error: “Failed to start recording: Temp Folder Uninitialized”

No surprises here.  Anytime I blog about a technical error with a product it usually ends up being found by the search engines. 

 

4 A .NET Love Story

For a post that was originally written in 2005, it still remains my most viewed blog post of all time. Doesn’t that make sense?  It is about love…

 

3 To MVP, or not to MVP…

This was a blog post in response to an ex-MVP who felt the MVP program at Microsoft had no value in his eyes.  It was not the most viewed blog post, but it claims the prize for the most comments.

 

2 HTML5 “Web Camp” Videos

Confession time.  I really was hoping this would post would land at number one.  Coming in at number two is not bad considering I posted it in the latter part of 2011.  Nonetheless, recording industry super-stars sharing secrets about HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript techniques still took a back seat to my number one blog post of the year…

 

1 How to Fix/Repair iPhone With Water Damage

Seriously?  In my first year at Microsoft, my number one blog post is about how I fixed my wife’s iPhone?  *sigh*
