As 2016 comes to a close, I am so thankful to all of you, the growing number of readers who continue to regularly visit this Nerd’s Eye View blog, and have been kind enough to share the content with your friends and colleagues as well (which I greatly appreciate!). Over the past year, the cumulative readership of the blog has grown yet another 35%, with more than 160,000 unique readers coming to Nerd’s Eye View last month. The continued growth has meant more reinvestments into features and even staffing, to continue to build this platform for the benefit of advisors. And we’ll be announcing a number of major new initiatives in early 2017 as well!
Yet notwithstanding how many of you have made reading the Nerd’s Eye View a weekly habit, I realize that the sheer volume of articles can feel overwhelming at times, and that it’s not always possible to keep up with it all. And blog articles, once published, are usually quite quickly left in the dust as the next new article comes along.
Accordingly, just as I did last year and in 2014, I’ve compiled for you this Highlights list of our top 20 articles of 2016 that you might have missed. So whether you’re new to the blog and haven’t searched through the Archives yet, or simply haven’t had the time to keep up with everything, I hope that some of these will (still) be useful for you! And as always, I hope you’ll take a moment to share articles of interest with your friends and colleagues as well!
In the meantime, I hope you’re having a safe and happy holiday season. Thanks again for another successful year in 2016, and I hope you enjoy all the new services we’ll be rolling out in 2017, too!
