Goodbye 2022!

As we say goodbye to yet another calendar year, we’re sharing our achievements for the past year.

Pageviews and visits

Throughout 2022, the / Weblogs sustained 200,000 weekly pageviews:

Reporting on Windows Server monthly updates impacting Active Directory in organizations a couple of spikes emerge. This is also reflected in the Top 10 blogpost; this list features two blogposts (January 2022 and May 2022).

In total, we saw 12,618,584 pageviews this calendar year.

Top blogs

In the traditional blogpost at the end of previous years, we shared information in a pie chart on pageviews 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.

New blogger

This year, Tomislav Fučkar joined the / Weblogs as an author. He writes about his Croatian experiences.

Top blog posts

Unsurprisingly, the top 10 blogposts for 2022 is also dominated by blog posts by Sander Berkouwer, but you can find two blogposts by Dave Stork in this list:
