As the year comes to a close, ID takes a look back at the most popular items we posted during the year between news items, blogs and articles. Whereas ID's news items post purely facts and information, our blogs provide more commentary and author insight into the topic at hand. All these blogs were penned ID staffers. Our No. 1 item — about Fastenal's new P.O.D.'s offering — shot to the top of the list after less than 48 hours after posting Wednesday morning.
Here are the top 10 blogs posted on ID during 2016:

There were actually a number of blogs posted prior to 2016 that would have made this top 10 list, but I wanted it to reflect only items posted during 2016.
