No 10

Happy New Year everybody! I hope everyone enjoyed the Holiday season. Now back to work!

I like to put together a list of the most-viewed posts of the year at the end of the year. It’s fun to see what people want to read about. It’s not always what I think it might be. It’s fun, too, to see how much we grow from year to year. Our newsletters (Path Bites and our Blog Post newsletter) have about 8,500 subscribers, which a few years ago would have seemed unbelievable. We have a lot of visitors to the site, too – 1.1 million (really!) page views and 799,000 individual visitors this past year, which is up quite a bit from the previous year. Yay! The more people that find Pathology Student useful, the better!

Without further number-crunching, here are the top-viewed posts of 2013.

1. How come the intrinsic and extrinsic pathways are named that way?
2. Does reticulocytosis cause a macrocytic anemia?
3. A simple summary of glomerulonephritis
