Top 10 Quartz Columns and Top 25 All-Time Posts as of February 12, 2013

The top 25 posts on listed below are based on Google Analytics pageviews from June 3, 2012 through February 11, 2013. The number of pageviews is shown by each post. (There were 195,923 pageviews during this period, but, for example, 66,802 homepage views could not be categorized by post.) I have to handle my Quartz columns separately because that pageview data is proprietary. So there I am giving only the order in the Top 10 list immediately below. The list of top posts would be quite misleading without the inclusion of the Quartz columns. You might also find other posts you like in this earlier list of top posts, at this link.
