Top 10 posts from Beyond Meds 2015 (and the top ten from all time too)

I generally find numbered lists annoying but this is one I do every year. I do find the end of year stats interesting and it seems fair enough to share some of them with the readers of this blog without whom there would be no stats.

I continue to be pleased to know this blog is being used as the resource I’d hoped it would become. Most of the highest trafficked posts are collections from the archives which allow people to peruse by subject matter. They’re listed beneath this years top posts. They’re also always readily available from the drop down menus at the very top of the blog along with a lot of other collections from the archives.

Thanks to all my many readers all over the world for your ongoing support and for your commitment to becoming who you are meant to be in a world that makes it very difficult for us to do that. We all need each other to do that. That we might heal not just ourselves but our families, communities and our planet.

Perhaps some of these posts will be new to you. Enjoy.

Happy Holidays.

The top 10 from all the over 5000 posts on the site are below. These are old posts that simply get traffic every single day now and in some cases have been getting daily traffic for several years. That’s pretty cool since most of them are carrying really important information that need to be more broadly understood. A lot of them beat out the new posts in traffic simply because they get traffic every day and in general most posts fizzle out traffic wise after a few days to a week…
