  1. Congrats, Jacob! These are impressive stats. I’m particularly surprised by how many LinkedIn members you’ve attracted. I’ll have to take a closer look at what you’re doing over there. It’s pretty cool that so many people are interested in your portfolio. Consider that part of your service, the fact that so many people will see what you create.

    Keep it up and I’m looking forward to following you in 2011!

  2. Wow, those are pretty awesome stats, congratulations!

    I’ve enjoyed all your articles. I’m learning so much, which is great for when I begin university (Uni of South Australia) next year to study Visual Communication! My favourite article this year (which isn’t in the top 10) is “How to sell the value of design: An email conversation” – I will definitely look back at this if I ever find myself in an awkward situation with a client! I also like “Design Agency VS Freelance Life” too. Thankyou for sharing and keep up the great work! Such an inspiration you are!

    P.S Happy Birthday! Have a good one!

  3. Congrats Jacob! I’m happy one of my articles made it onto the top 10 times! Happy New Year – continued success in the New Year!

  4. I remember when I read your this post “Top 12 Logo Design Mistakes To Avoid” lats time,when we were working on a logo design and after read this post we avoid that kind of mistakes in our work.I mailed that article post to my logo designer and he thanked me for sharing.So I hope you ll keep it up your work in 2011 and update us with some new valuable articles.
    Thanks again!

  5. OMG! It’s really a miracle that I even saw this post. Seeing it in reader I thought it was the same article, but for some reason I clicked through anyway. I’m so very flattered that you actually took the time to follow-up on my suggestion, and even gave credit as well! Very cool!

    I must be a stats-driven kinda guy because I immediately scrolled right past the articles hahaha. If you wanna rebound some ideas on how to improve them shoot me an e-mail, I’d be more than happy to help out. Also glad you clarified those IE stats, as I misread too thinking “wtf is goin on here?”

    This article made my day man, thanks again!

    P.S. The profile link in the article is incorrect. Eek!
