Seeing April come to an end marks one third of the year gone. Can you believe it?
The year 2015 seems like it started yesterday but we’ve already entered the fifth month of the year. Crazy, I tell you!
I hope this year has only gotten better for you as the year has progressed. Ours definitely has.
With that said, it’s time to get to business today. Today’s post is all about what happened last month and what’s going to happen going forward.
So, let’s take a look at the top posts, the top commenters, the blog statistics, and happenings in my life.
Top Blog Posts
Every single post in the top 10 list this month was a list post. It’s been said that list posts are effective because they let people know what to expect. I’m beginning to see the truth in this.
There’s also the fact that 70% of the list is made up of pop culture leadership lessons. Whether it’s from Marvel movies, action movies, or a TV series, you guys are totally digging the lessons I draw out from entertainment sources.
Well, there’s good news. There’s plenty more where those came from and I have an exciting announcement to make in the news section, though if you read the leadership lessons from Avengers 2 you will already know what’s coming.
1. Jon Stolpe
4. Dan Knight
5. Jeffrey P. Rush
7. Paul Sohn
It’s great to see new names on the list. Kiki, Jeffrey, and Kemkem are all new additions. Thanks for sharing your thoughts and life on the blog.
Sessions – Increased 32.48%

Pageviews – Increased 31.47%
Pages Per Session – Decreased 0.76%
Average Session Duration – Increased 4.59%

If you remember, the last couple of months we saw a decline in almost every site statistic. Sessions, users, pageviews, etc were all down considerably.
Now, this month they saw a great rebound.
As you’re blogging, remember this. You will have good months and you will have bad months. Don’t give up.
My friend Kent Sanders and I have created a team of super-bloggers/podcasters to do a crossover series this summer. With all of the summer movies coming out, we thought it would be great to join forces and share the leadership wisdom other bloggers see in movies. We’re calling this series Reel Leadership and I hope you’ll visit some of their sites as we progress through the summer.
