#1 — With a Bullet

After over 2,000 posts spanning almost four years on subjects ranging from housing market trends, Federal Reserve policy, negotiation strategy, etc., the runaway most popular post on this blog is . . . this week’s post on the real housewives of the Twin Cities (see, “Popular Posts” in the far right column).

In keeping with that philosophy, I’m currently working on posts discussing Casey Anthony, Michele Bachmann, Dominique Strauss-Kahn, etc.

P.S.:  What is a “piggyback post?”

My term for a blog post that seeks to capitalize on the traffic generated by the day’s “hottest” subjects or individuals, by adding an editorial gloss or comment (or in my case, a trenchant insight 🙂 ).
