In this post, I give you the most popular posts of 2010. This year was the first full calendar year blogging about Joomla. I started in May 2009. The year has been incredible, and I think the future is bright for Joomla.
When we approach the end of this year, I would like to take the opportunity to thank you - my loyal reader - for supporting my blog. A special thank you goes to all those who comment on my posts, subscribe to my email list, follow my RSS feed and my Twitter account.
Without you, the time I put into writing this blog wouldn't be worth it. However, getting your positive feedback is a constant inspiration to me. It's what makes me want to write better and more informative posts. I continuously learn from you and your feedback, and I hope you take some value from my posts as well. I wish you and your family a happy holiday and a prosperous 2011.
Read on for the 10 most popular posts of 2010.
