A note from Preston: GDB is more than 3 years old this year and in 2012, we’ve had a great first half of the year!

Why so great?

Because so many of you have joined us!

My analytics show that more than 150,000 of you have visited the site for the first time in 2012.

So I asked  April to compile a list of what she thought were the most helpful blog posts on this entire site.

She rounded up 50 of them and I couldn’t be more excited to deliver to you “50 of the best GDB posts you may have missed”.

PS: I’ve bolded my favorite articles in each category so if you’re short on time, start with those!

Now, over to April…

*  *  *

Today I want to thank all of our readers for your input and discussion that makes GDB so great. Without your questions, comments, and interest in becoming better, more productive, and more profitable entrepreneurs, GDB wouldn’t exist.

I’ve compiled a list of 50 of the best GDB posts and organized them by topic below.

Unless you are a true GDB know-it-all and you’ve been subscribed since day one, I assure you there are a whole bunch of amazing posts listed here that you haven’t read.

Pick a topic and improve one aspect of your business, or pick up tips over a broad spectrum.

And don’t forget to leave a comment on this post telling us which post (or topic) is your favorite and why.

We’d also love to know how long you’ve been reading GDB…tell us in the comments.

(And don’t forget to subscribe to all the new posts we have coming up for 2012 and beyond!)
