Happy blogiversary post number two! This is our second post to mark the one-year anniversary of the Get Moving blog (in case you missed it, here is the first post on the subject).

This post goes out to all of you who are data junkies. Here's a breakdown of all things Get Moving broken into two parts: One about me and my numbers, and one about the blog specifically.

First let's go through the blog stats since I find this wildly fascinating from a data-nerd standpoint:

Top 5 most popular posts based on page views:
1. My fitness secret weapons
2. The 10-minute workout
3. 5 common workout mistakes
4. A popular request for crockpot recipes
5. What to eat before exercising

Least popular 5 fives posts based on page views:
1. Marathon gear testers needed
2. Redesigning the fit scoreboard
3. Fit things to do: Earth day eco-beauty bar
4. Resolute toward stumbling
5. NESN's Tom Caron on his first 9K
