The #1 most viewed blog post of 2012 covered the tragic tornado event of March 2 in West Liberty, Kentucky. The post generated more than 200 comments, which is a record for the blog. Most of the comments stemmed around folks trying to locate friends or family members in the area. I was humbled and flattered that a lot of folks were able to connect via the blog.
Not only was it the most viewed blog post of 2012, but during the year it has also surpassed the original post on the Joplin Tornado as the #1 most viewed post in the history of the blog. Over 512,000 unique visitors have read the West Liberty post since it was originally published!
I plan to make a detailed 1 year anniversary post on the event in 2013, which will cover the progress that has been made with respect to the community's recovery since the horrible event of earlier this year.
