The top 10 posts of 2012


Happy New Year!  If you haven’t stopped by my blog before, welcome.  If you have, thanks for being a returning visitor.  It has been another great year, learning more about what I can do to put together what I hope is a useful, good quality research blog.

One of my goals for this year was to put together an eBook out of some posts, so I chose the top 5 posts of 2012 and built the updates into the original information.  I like the way it turned out.  After a lot of searching for what to do and how to put together an eBook, I found that getting the posts into Word, formatting, then printing as a pdf was the best and most flexible way to publish.  Since the content was already there, it wasn’t too hard to put together.  The online tools that are out there were either limited, included a watermark, or had to be paid for.  If you are interested in reading about what people that visit Object Plastic most frequently read about in 2012, click the title page below for the download.
