Best wishes for a happy and prosperous 2010 to all the readers of GeoPrac.net! I am grateful for all of my readers, visitors and sponsors for a great 2009 and I look forward to continuing to work in the new year towards making this site one of the best online resources for geotechnical engineers, geoengineers and all professionals in the geo-industry.
As is customary for bloggers at this time of year, I have listed below the top 100 GeoPrac.net stories published in 2009. Long-time readers of GeoPrac know that I don’t like to rank the articles by total number of ‘hits’, since I think that biases the rankings towards the ones that have been published longer. Instead, I order them by hits per day. I think that works well when looking at popularity of content on a monthly basis, but just for grins I’ve also included the top 100 items of all time (based on total page impressions). Again, Happy New Year!

I can hardly believe it, but today marks the one year anniversary of the launch of GeoPrac! It has been a good ride so far, things haven’t exactly gone quite like I planned, but when has that ever happened? I’m grateful to all of the visitors who frequent the site and particularly to the people who have contributed an article or geonews item. I intend to do a wrapup of the most popular articles/news items of Q1 2008 and a "state of the union" type post with some thoughts about where I intend to take the site in the coming year. But I’ve just been out of gas with the newborn in the house. I’ll try to get to it this weekend.
Here’s to a good first year and many more to come! Cheers!
