Our Most Popular Blog Posts of 2018

December 24, 2018

As 2018 comes to a close, we thought it would be fun to look back at this year’s blog posts and reminisce. Throughout the journey to find the topics that are most important and interesting to our customers, we’ve definitely learned some things. While some subjects really resonated with our audience, others were not so successful.

So what were our most popular blog posts of 2018? Before we jump into the list, it’s important to divulge how we determined which posts made the cut. Of course, there are many different ways to define success. Ultimately, we decided to narrow down our top 7 blog posts based on unique page views. We felt this was the most scientific way to assess how many people had read each post – but it definitely made for a close race!

Without further ado, here is a roundup of our top 7 blog posts from 2018, based on popularity:

  1. How to Install Modu-Loc Fence
    Our customers sure are a practical bunch! It stands to reason, then, that our most-read blog post of the year was a step-by-step guide to installing our temporary fence. If you plan to install your own temporary rental fence, be sure to give this post a read first.
  2. Protecting Public Safety During Construction
    We’re proud that our customers are so safety-conscious. Our second most popular blog post was a handy guide to Modu-Loc’s safety products. It covered the ideal applications for each product, and is helpful for anyone looking to improve the safety of their site perimeter.
  3. Should You Rent or Buy Your Fence?
    We’re not surprised that this post made the list. This question is as old as the concept of temporary rental fence! This is a must-read for anyone deciding between renting and buying their construction fence.
  4. Best Practices for Installing Modu-Loc Fence
    You might consider this “extra credit”, but we think it’s an essential guide for anybody who is planning to install their own temporary fence. While our “How to Install Modu-Loc Fence” post covers the basics, this piece will help you ensure your fence line is as safe and stable as possible.
  5. Modu-Loc Named a Best Managed Company Again
    It’s always such a thrill to be able to say we are a Best Managed company. We must admit, we’re a little surprised this post made the list – but we’re proud nonetheless!
  6. Hot Weather Survival Guide for Outdoor Events
    This post featured some great tips for safely working outdoor events in the summertime. At Modu-Loc, we have learned how to cope with the heat thanks to our team of field employees. So if you’re new to the outdoor events game (or even if you’re more experienced), be sure to check out this guide.
  7. 7 Spooky Things Found on Construction Sites
    Rounding out our list is a fun post that’s more “guilty indulgence” than helpful how-to. To get into the Halloween spirit, we searched the internet for the strangest examples of spooky discoveries made on job sites. This post is an entertaining read at any time of year!

While these posts were the most popular this year, we encourage you to check out our blog to catch up on some of the other great pieces we published in 2018. (Okay, we might be a little biased!) We covered a range of interesting and helpful topics this year, and we’re looking forward to delving into some new content in 2019. We hope you’ll be back for more next year!

Thank you for your support this year, and we wish you a Happy New Year!
