The Best Articles of 2010

2010 is almost over, and for me at least, it was both a really frustrating and stressful year, but it was also the best year ever on The traffic level increased 385%, estimated to reach half a million absolute unique readers per month here in December.

I also launched Baekdal Plus, which is more in-depth content focusing on providing advice, insights, analysis, and trend forecasts - all in the format of a stream.

Here is a short summary of the best content in 2010:

The Design section

A big part of is the design section. It is responsible for more than 65% of the traffic, but is kept as a separate section away from the main site. It relies totally on social sharing.

So let's get on with 2011. It is what the sci-fi authors define as the year after the future. It's going to be wicked :)


The Baekdal Plus Newsletter is the best way to be notified about the latest media reports, but it also comes with extra insights.
