Top Posts And Commenters For June 2014

We’re now halfway through the year. Can you believe it? This year has flown by.

I hope you’ve been holding on and honing your leadership skills. That’s the only way you’re going to move from an emerging leader to a seasoned leader.

Education, preparation, implementation, action, and review. Those are the keys to continued growth.

That’s why, at the beginning of every month, I review what’s happening on the blog.

This month, I saw a rise in the popularity of my pop-culture leadership posts. The leadership posts centered around the latest movies have done really well, especially the leadership from the X-Men post.

The other trend I see is that the numbered list post type has brought in a lot of traffic. My feeling is that people like to know how many pointers they’re going to get and can then quickly browse the post for the leadership tips that stick out to them.

A huge thank you to everyone who has commented on the blog. You guys keep things going and dig deeper into the leadership principles presented on the blog. Without you, there’d be a lot less depth here.

These stats are shocking to me. Last month seen a record increase in blog traffic. My mind was ready to see a huge drop-off in blog traffic this month. That was not the case.

This month ushered in another record amount of traffic.

For that, I am very grateful. This means people are reading my blog and they’re coming back. My hope is that the content they’re consuming is applied and helping leaders to lead better.

The free giveaway I was planning has now been put on hold until I finish a new project I’m working on. This project is going to be my first paid product which will be an eBook to help you capitalize on valuable time that is often wasted.

I’m excited to begin writing the book and hope you’ll enjoy the topics discussed. I think it will really help young leaders use their time wisely and move them to the next level.
