Four Years of Giving Up Control

As I begin to post at my new blog site, I thought it would be interesting to look back at over 4 years of posts at Giving up Control at WordPress.

There were over 200,000 visitors for my over 250 posts. I’m grateful for the over 1500 thoughtful comments that readers made at the blog. After a few months away from blogging, I’m looking forward to the renewed dialogue at this site.

These were the top 20 posts in terms of readership at the old blog. If you’re wondering why a post about Shakespeare and leadership is ranked number one, the post has made its way into numerous college reading lists. The post on Kazakhstan was featured on the front page of WordPress for over 6 months and George Ure at Urban Survival demonstrated to me the huge readership he has when he kindly linked to my post on veggie hot dogs.
