Since the very first article 'For retirees, every ringgit counts' was posted here in May 2008, SeniorsAloud has posted close to 850 articles including videos on the blog. I did a quick check on the number of page views per post, and this is what I have discovered. While the articles cover a wide range of topics, the ones that have garnered the most page views are on health, finance and nursing homes.

My personal favourite is Tan Sri Dato Dr Ani Arope's retirement speech entitled 'A Peacock today, A Feather Duster Tomorrow'. It is one of the best retirement speeches I have come across, with plenty of practical and sensible advice for soon-to-be retirees. I certainly wish I had known about it earlier, and made better preparation for my own retirement.
