Since this is the time of year in which each of us historically looks back and reflects on the happenings of the last twelve months, the staff of ABL Advisor takes this occasion to do the same. As 2013 rapidly comes to a close, we thought it would be interesting to take a look at which of our articles and blogs captured our readers’ interest the most. In that light, we reviewed this year’s content and website metrics to determine which five articles and which three blogs received the greatest number of "clicks” from our readers’ mouses ... or is it mice?

It is in this spirit of giving that we offer ABL Advisor’s top five articles and three blogs for your discovery, edification or at the very least, your amusement.

In closing, we would like to underscore that the staff of ABL Advisor sought to provide top-level content to its readers, and from our perspective, each of our articles and blogs were not only well written, but relevant to the industry as well. The title, "The Best of 2013," only refers to our readers' preferences and in no way takes away from the rest of our content. As such, we express our deep gratitute to each of the writers and interviewees who contributed to ABL Advisor this year.

One final thought ... we thank our readers and advertisers as well and wish all a joyous holiday season followed by a healthy, happy and prosperous 2014!

Editor's note: In the matter of mouses versus mice, it turns out both are acceptable in this context.
