Random Thoughts on 2014, Welcome to MMXV and #BestOf

As it is the end of the year, I figured I’d regurgitate a #Bestof list based on my regular Friday posts. No pontificating precursor with me rambling on about things barely financial, straight on to the exciting data from the past year.

My Top Read Posts for 2014

Surprisingly most of the most read posts I had this year, weren’t really written this year, which means either my writing has great staying power, or I wrote a lot of cods wallop this year (wonder which is more correct).

The Customer retention script is easily my most read post ever, it even has a few nasty comments from folks on the other end of the phone. The RESP from Start to Spend got some actual media coverage which vaulted it into this list of posts.

Strangely my favorite post in terms of writing Fool Proof Market Timing System, didn’t cause a ripple, nor was it noticed by anyone, just goes to show I can’t tell what folks like or dislike.

Top Commenters for 2014

I must admit that sometimes I am quite perplexed that I don’t get more comments, given some of the more controversial statements I have made. Still, I will strive in the new year to make this more of a dialogue, and less of a monologue with me pontificating my points of view.

The Dutchie
My Biggest Disappointement for 2014 , the Demise of the Dutchy at Tim Horton’s

My most commented posts were the giveaways this year (for Quicktax and such), however, these were my most commented post:

  • Too Conservative Portfolio, which did ask a specific question, and it did cause a great deal of commentary
  • Key Financial Rules is me (again) ranting about borrowing and how it is far too commonplace these days.
  • Debt Won’t Just Disappear came from a rather animated Twitter discussion about the use of debt (some folks don’t take kindly to my negative commentaries, it seems).

Given the list I put out every week is quite extensive, it is interesting to see which of the links you liked to click the most. Yes, I do actually look at the “analytics” from this site and do tweak things on occasion on the basis of those numbers (not too much, I have to write what I want or it will read even dumber).

The most interesting entry on this list is the fact that the Canadian Capitalist’s post actually was 5 times more clicked than any other link I posted (other than a CRA link that is).
