Top posts of 2009

I started blogging regularly on Project Idealism in August. Two posts were more popular than any others by far, so I figured instead of having a "top 5" I'd just go ahead and post these two.

How to start a business in Chicago was my second post (and also my second most popular post) and I outline all the steps you need to take to.....well, you get the idea. If you're thinking about taking the leap, this should make the steps clearer and easier for you than anything else I was able to find when I started Ideal Project Group.

Naiveté is an asset was my most popular post with more people reading it than any other, and it also happens to be one of my favorites. Project Idealism received the most visitors in a single day when Design Feaster tweeted about this post back in November.

I think it's appropriate though that these two were my most popular. One shared information that others might find useful and received a constant trickle of traffic. The other inspired someone else with a following to mention it.

If you're thinking about starting a business but don't think you know how, hopefully one will encourage you to be comfortable with what you don't know, and the other can walk you through the legal steps to get it started - at least in Chicago.

Happy new year!
