Curious? Our most popular blog posts to date

Three primary scale indicators

I was looking through the list of our blog posts, and I thought you might be interested to see which ones have gotten the most “hits”. I’ll list them here, but keep in mind that some of our older posts get higher numbers of hits because, well, they’ve just been around longer! But I think this list also helps us learn what you want to hear about. If anything in the list generates an idea about something you would like us to blog about, please send us comments to this post so we can hear from you. So, here we go…

And the winners are…(blog posts that have had over 10,000 hits)…in order of appearance:
