Our Innisfil – Last Year’s Top Stories

Word Press kindly supplies an interesting summary of the year’s activity for its bloggers so I thought I would share some of the highlights of activity at Our Innisfil with my readers.

  • In 2011, this blog was viewed about 5,300 times
  • There were 77 new posts
  • The busiest day of the year was February 28th with 99 views. The most popular post that day was Inspiration, Heritage and Celebration – It’s Coming Together.

In a town that is experiencing a lot of change, heritage preservation is a sensitive topic. Residents are concerned about preserving Innisfil’s character, history and sense of place. This post also stirred some readers enough to leave comments – something that doesn’t happen often, no matter what I write about.

The environment is also a hot topic. Melancthon Quarry is the latest concern. News about new urban developments around Innisfil also attract attention.

These are my top 5 articles that were viewed most in 2011:
