2022 has been a great year for the Rat Race Running Blog. We redesigned the logo, improved the process, and it has also increased in reach.
This year was also great for our Facebook page as it increased sevenfold, from 1,000 followers to more than 7,000. We also reached the 50,000 views milestone for the blog in its fifth year, after growing more than 150% in 12 months.
We also learned more about search engine optimization (SEO). We slowly made changes that will increase the site’s visibility through Google. It is also expected to get even better next year.
Okay, enough of the year-end performance of the blog. So, to continue the tradition, here are the top-viewed blog posts for 2022.
