Top blogs

In the tradition blogpost at the end of previous years, we shared information in a pie chart on page views per blog. We created the pie chart this year, but 97,2% of all page views in 2021 were for The thing that are better left unspoken, Sander Berkouwer's blog. The pie chart for the blogs closely resembles the pie chart of Azure AD Connect compared to other synchronization solutions… and isn't considered very informative.
