For our first blog this year, I wanted to highlight our top blogs of 2022 and share a few statistics.
Top New Blogs in 2022
Starting with a list of the most popular new blogs that we published in 2022.

Next the blogs that we published in earlier years, ranked by their views in the year 2022. These evergreen blogs get views each day, mostly via Google search and have become prime reference articles on the topic.
The top five with > 35,000 views and a cumulative 86,000 views for these top 25 blogs.
I have also added the 2021 Rank to show which moved up and which down in 2022.
The top 5 with a cumulative 37,000 views and an average time on the page of between 4 to 7 minutes, making the cumulative time a staggering 3,400 hours for these.

A Little Competition
As the blog articles stack up, us data geeks, (meaning Chris and I), have a little competition going.
My blog article count is currently 415 and Chris’s is 412, the gap having narrowed in 2022.
Who will end 2023 on top?
Place your bets.
We strive each week to create original content that educates, informs and interests readers.
We hope to continue to do the same in 2023.
It is gratifying that the data shows that so many of you follow the Clarus blog.
We hope you will continue to do so.
