What did you learn about real estate investing in 2014?

If you are anything like me: a lot.

Most of that learning has been from the BiggerPockets Podcast and the BiggerPockets Blog. Each week, more than 30 volunteer writers contribute articles to help others in the BiggerPockets community grow their real estate businesses.

I don’t think a day goes by that I don’t learn something from these amazing people.

Therefore, I thought it would be a good idea to sift through our “Analytics” on the back-end of BiggerPockets and see what the most popular posts for each month were. Below you’ll find the top 8 or 9 posts from each month, based on number of unique views in 2014.

Obviously, there were hundreds of incredible posts that didn’t make this list simply because the headlines were not quite as “catchy” or there was an over-abundance of incredible posts out all at the same time, so I want to take just a moment and thank every one of the volunteers who donated their time this year to help improve the BiggerPockets community.

******Finally, before I get to the list, I want to invite you to join me on an upcoming webinar that is happening THIS TUESDAY. In this free online workshop we will be covering “The 10 Must-Follow Steps to Buy Your First (or Next) Investment Property in 2015.” I am super excited to be able to put this thing on and want to encourage you to make time to attend. As a special reward, during the webinar I’ll be giving away both a free “Annual BiggerPockets Pro Membership” AND my top five favorite business books from 2014 (which you can read about in my post Five Business Books That Changed My Life in 2014.)*******

Lastly, I wanted to give a shout out to my buddy Dave, who helped me put this list together and organize it. Thanks Dave!
