Most Popular Newsletter Posts of 2012

The following is a list, taken just before the end of 2012 of the most popular posts in 2012:
Herts Parish Church Registers to be digitised 24 Feb 535 You are probably all as frustrated as I am over this - FindMyPast promised the Hertfordshire Registers online during 2012 - and nothing has happened.
Site activity for the year 2011 1 Jan 529 A lot of people seem to be interested in the history of the site.
Dating Valentine Post Cards 11 Jun 213 Many people are interested in dating old post cards - Valentines are some of the most popular - and my site is probably one of the best
New Post Cards of Aldbury 26 Jan 200 This has been a bit of a honey trap - in that it includes the words "Charles Dickens" and I suspect many visitors are looking for information on the "Charles Dickens". (Now changed to "C. Dickens" to see what happens.)
My first impressions of the Canon Powershot SX40 ... 10 Sep 193 This "off topic" post would seem to be a very popular review of the camera. Some of may "Rural Relaxation" type posts have proved popular. 
Cardboard Boxes in St Albans in 1898 17 Nov 160 A comparatively lightweight item with an unexpected title - so curiosity undoubtedly a factor. Some other pages with interesting titles have popped into the current top ten. 
22 Oct 2011 146 It is clear that there is almost always at least one First World War post in the list - and this is the most popular.
