Every few days, I notice which old posts are being visited on our blog page. I am somewhat surprised when I see what is popular. Unfortunately, it is difficult to tell whether these are visited often because they are really popular or because there is a list of Popular Posts at the top of the page in the left sidebar. Some of the same posts probably get clicked on just because they are in the list. Maybe they are in the most-viewed list because they are old and have been on the site for so long!
I recently had a conversation with a friend who was talking about a bakery selling more white cakes by far than chocolate or marble. When she looked at their case, she questioned whether the bakery sold more white cakes because that is what they put out for people to buy or whether they put out white cakes because that is what people requested. While questions like this are standard marketing fare, they can be useful to all of us in evaluating what we provide to the public. I think I choose topics because I want to write about them. Maybe I actually choose them because it appears that they are what people want to read about!

I remind you, these are pretty old posts. If you want to see more recent posts, just go to the SOS-at-large page, start at the top and scroll down. Alternatively, look at the Latest Posts list (just under the Popular Posts), or scroll down a bit more and click on the Archives list month-by-month. If you are interested in a particular topic, find the Search for box near the top on the right sidebar. Just type in the term you are interested in. For example, typing HIPAA in that box will show all the articles in which HIPAA is mentioned. We have been writing this blog since October 2008, so there are lots of articles there, but some of them are old and the information is dated. If there is a topic in which are you are interested but you only see old information, let me know. I would be glad to write new posts with fresh data.
What do you think? Do you buy white cake because it is what is in the case? Do you read about HIPAA and ICD-10 because you need the information or because the articles are near the top of the list? Please share your comments below.
