Top 5 blogposts on the / Weblogs in 2011

Calendar Year 2011 is coming to an end. Some people might want to forget about the past year as soon as possible, but here at the / Weblogs we’re pretty proud of the last year.

Continuing our double digit growth rate in pageviews and visits, we’re now close to a million pageviews per year with this website.  Quite a phenomenal performance of the bloggers here, since no new major Active Directory technology was released in the past twelve months. With a new version of Windows Server looming on the horizon, we’ll have plenty to blog about in the next months and the value we create for our readers will increase once more.

In 2011 eight of our bloggers posted a total of 100 new blogposts. DirTeam’s 2011 most prolific blogger was Jorge de Almeida Pinto with 35 blogposts. Unfortunately, Jorge left us in September to try it on his own.

The most popular new blogposts in 2011 were:
