Top posts for 2010: From the corn genome to HSUS

The time between Christmas and New Years is a great opportunity to look back on the previous year and see what blog posts drew the most interest – and in 2010 it was clear that anything to do with the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) got people's attention.

In fact of the top 12 posts below, six have something to do with HSUS if you include the [yellow tail] wine posts. If you recall, the family-run Australian wine maker was set to donate money to HSUS when a successful movement driven by social media called them out. A similar movement invoving Pilot Travel Centers was also successful.

The top post involves the corn genome and was published on November 19, 2009. Yet it continues to draw a lot of eyeballs today, including from Google image searches. People want to see what the genome looks like!
