It’s that time of year when I reflect on another year’s worth of design tutorials here on Blog.SpoonGraphics and check over the stats to see which posts ended up proving the most popular. Here’s a roundup of the most popular tutorial posts from 2011 based on the number of StumbleUpon ‘thumbs up’ votes. If you compare them with last year’s figures you’ll see a dramatic decrease in the number of likes per post, but at least traffic figures are still going strong. I wonder if this suggests a decrease in the use of such social sharing sites?
Let me know if there’s any particular tutorial from 2011 that stands out to you. Maybe it’s one that isn’t even on the list!
