The Inforrm Blog recently had its first birthday.  Yesterday we reached another milestone – 500 posts.  We thought that it might be of interest to readers to highlight, once again, our most popular posts – along with some of the early, less visible ones which may be unfamiliar to those who have only recently started reading the blog.These are some of the less visible posts – largely from the first half of 2010 – which we thought might be of interest to new readers:
