What is your fav blog post?

Since I can't post much until MIX '09 is here.. I thought I'll do an off topic post. 🙂 I started blogging when I first become a PM back in September 2005. Here are my top 3 posts for the past 4 years:

#3 -With 12,154 views is Watermarked TextBox for Silverlight 2 Beta 2 posted on June 2008

#2 - With 59,720 views is .NET Format String 102: DateTime Format String posted on September 2006

#1 - With 119,575 views is .NET Format String 101 posted on March 2006

So what would you like to see me post in the future? More "101" type posts? More starter guides?

I know many of you are bloggers yourself. What are your top posts?

I can't wait till MIX is here. I have SOOOOOOOOO much to blog about! I'll be back! (I probably shouldn't blog while watching the Terminator on TV.)

    Your editorial comments are always awesome. Isn’t a blog in essence nothing but editorial comments?

    I can’t wait to hear and see the new posts you’re preparing!

    I don’t think it’s a case of your 101 format being successful, but more you posting a topic that people search on frequently.

    If you have a post that resolves common Visual Studio errors for example, then that will get the most hits, compared with some esoteric knowledge about Silverlight.

    Scott Guthrie does well because when Silverlight came out (or ASP.NET/Linq stuff) he has a tutorial or extensive information that people want or need to get them started A.S.A.P with the technology.

    Is your favorite blog post the one that got the most hit’s or the one that everyone missed that is a great source of inspiration or coding practices?

    Hi Ira,

    So what other topics would you like me to do a 101 post on?
