Top Blogs for 2016 on the Cisco Learning NetworkThe year 2016 is coming to an end, and as we move toward 2017, we wanted to look back on all the amazing blogging efforts that took place on the Cisco Learning Network in 2016. We had new authors, growing blog channels, support of the CCNA Routing and Switching exam updates... lots of fun. And just like last year, I thought it would be cool to post 2016's top blogs in case you missed any of them.


I'm doing it a little bit differently this year and posting the top 3 blogs from each of our active blog channels. I'm listing them from top to bottom in terms of the active channels with the most views and descending down the page.


But first... the top blog of 2016, independent of the channel it comes from is... drum roll...
