After writing for more than a year, I feel it's time to let you know which articles are most popular here. Also for new readers (welcome!) to get a feel on what I write about and what goes on here. For this top 10 I use the statisticsapp Mint. If you have a weblog, I can highly recommend this stats-program. It gives you a variety of information without becoming too cluttered like other (free) counters. Best feature: You will get a RSS feed for referrers to your site. Excellent...

Alas, let us continue to The Top 10 WTNA Blogposts!

10. Get into Backpack easy: About the affiliate program Backpack introduced (Thanks everyone for the signups already!)

9. Share in my joy: The nice feeling of an empty Inbox. Maybe I should make a desktop wallpaper of the picture?

8. How to use shoeboes with GTD: Or how to be creative on a very strange level...

7. The difference between GTD at home and at work: Thoughts on how I implement GTD in my personal life and some of the questions that arise with it

6. Simple Outlook hack may save your day in the future: How changing the subjectline reduces your stresslevel on loosing email

5. 8 Steps to a succesfull and empty Inbox after your vacation: Read it, live it, love it. They work. Period.

4. The connection between GTD and Tai Chi: Two concepts with a very similar background. "Have as little form as possible to fully understand the principle"

3. My mind is playing tricks on me: Learning to envision ideas on the right time.

2. Mindmapping eBook?: Doubts on a PDF about mindmapping

And it shouldn't be any surprise what the number one most read post is on this blog

1. Backpack and GTD: Ofcourse, with all the publicity on Lifehacker and the Backpack weblog, this article gets a lot of traffic. I am glad it helps others to move forward into using GTD or Backpack.

So there you have it, the top 10 of most read blogposts. Since I don't use Mint since the start of this blog, there are some articles who get less traffic, but are still worth reading.
