I forgot to do it last week, but it’s back (albeit with a slightly different name) this week! The following are the 10 most popular links I shared on Twitter, as tracked by bit.ly Pro. If you want to know how to get your own custom URL shortener, there’s a guide at chrisrat.com (seemingly down at present – Google cache here, although sans images)

10 Things I Shared This Week – #1

Two indisputable facts:

  • People like something to read at the weekend.
  • I share a lot of links on Twitter, usually whilst using TweetDeck.

Connecting the dots, I thought it would be useful to rank the most-clicked links that I share for those people who may have missed them. To cut a medium-length story short, any links I do share are shortened to the custom form dajb.eu/xxxxxx. This enables me to track them using bit.ly Pro (free!).

Here’s the 10 most popular links I’ve shared since Monday:

  1. Athabasca University Press – Mobile Learning (http://dajb.eu/aye3Ew) – 83 clicks
  2. #uppingyourgame: finished and now on sale! (http://dajb.eu/ai7Tnt) – 46 clicks
  3. Doug on Productivity – Episode 1 (http://dajb.eu/9xc1R4) – 44 clicks
  4. The truth about blogging (http://dajb.eu/9OIRMZ) – 35 clicks
