Here is a list of the top ten posts (as of May 28, 2014) for this blog, which dates to August 2010, when I wrote my first article. The blog now contains a healthy 1,591posts and a total of 633,270 page-views. This equates to an average, or mean, of 398 page-views per post. I don't yet have figures for the median, but it is likely around the 250 mark.
