Washington Post's most-read blog items of 2010

By Justin Bank

The Washington Post hosts many blogs on its servers across many different beats. Here we offer an unannotated, clickable list of the 20 most-read blog posts according to total page views for the year 2010. Unlike our 20 most-read articles list, the items below tend to be more concentrated on the political beat.

In clicking through the posts, you'll find that nearly all include updates as a story evolved, or maybe after a reader flagged an additional angle. In fact, the blog item on the word "refudiate" that was written over the summer was just updated again a few days ago, which helped bump it a few spots up the list.
