Trends and 2010 Top Posts [Dorky Data]

I enjoy the practice of reviewing your blog for the past year and noting its top posts. For me it gives me much insight into myself, specifically where I have been and where I might be headed.  It also gives me an opportunity to recycle posts visitors may not have had a chance to read.
