As in previous years, I have downloaded the statistics for this blog for the previous year, and pasted them into a worksheet. The link to each post is preserved in the spreadsheet, so it makes a convenient index to what has been posted over the year. This year I have uploaded the spreadsheet to Skydrive, so you should be able to access the links in the window below, or open the file in your browser or Excel, or download it.
Of the 2011 posts, the most popular overall (by a wide margin) was Using LINEST for non-linear curve fitting. The most popular in the Newton category was Dancing Pendulums, and the most popular in the Bach category was Wonders of the Universe – Kate Rusby

Excel: IP2 Update, ByRef and ByVal
Bach: The Rough Island Band
