We thought it would be insightful to take a look at which of our blogs from 2014 that captured our readers’ interest the most. In that light, we reviewed this year’s content and website metrics to determine which three blogs received the greatest number of "clicks” from our readers. Here's what we discovered...

Before we take leave, we wish to underscore that the staff of Equipment Finance Advisor continuously seeks to provide top-level content to its readers and from our perspective, each of our blogs this year were not only well written, but relevant to the industry. The title, The Best of 2014, only refers to our readers' preferences and in no way takes away from the rest of our blog content. As such, we express our deep gratitude to each of the writers who contributed to Equipment Finance Advisor this year.

One final thought...we thank our readers and advertisers as well and wish the very best in 2015!
