Thanks everybody for reading my blog here in 2019! It's been an interesting year on the blog, as usual, and I appreciate you taking time out of your busy lives to read and participate in the discussion. I hope this site will continue to be a part of your life in the second half of 2019.

I released 16 “Lean Blog Interviews” podcasts and I moved my podcasts to new hosts after some technical problems, as I wrote about. I was also happy to finally start the “Lean Whiskey” podcast series and I released four episodes of that. I also occasionally publish some “Lean Blog Audio” episodes — 19 of those.

Below are the ten most-read posts of the year, according to Google Analytics (popularity doesn't imply quality, but it's interesting to see what people are reading and sharing) — data through June 30.

You can also see which posts or pages have the most views, all time, since I started the blog in 2005.
