Top 20 Posts of 2013: Mostly About Jobs, Careers


As 2013 comes to a close, I spent a few hours today analyzing page requests, most popular posts and hosts that generated the bulk of the seven million-plus Culpwrit hits over the past year. I also compared topics to the Top 20 Posts for 2012 and found many common themes–college tips, careers, internships and the passing of legends.

While most hits come from within the U.S., a growing number of visits are coming from Europe, Asia and South America so we’ll add more globally focused posts in the new year. Finally, this blog couldn’t have posted one to three times a week for the past six years without the contributions of guest bloggers. Thanks to each of them for their thoughtful PR-related posts. Several of the regular contributors are included in the top posts of the past year.
