As I did last year, I’m going to do a little recap here, showcasing the five posts YOU, the readers, liked the most this year (according to my WordPress stats), as well as the five posts I, the writer, liked the most. Please feel free to check out any posts you missed and share this with anyone you think might enjoy my blog.
This post was kind of a phenomenon for me. It was shared hundreds of times on Facebook, which is as close to viral as I’ve ever gotten, and was also featured on BlogHer. Yet it was a simple, short post that owed much of what was interesting about it to another blogger whose post I was reacting to.
This will probably be the only “things not to say” post ever, because in general I don’t like that kind of thing, but this is a topic that is very personal to me.
Most of the views on this post came from Reddit. I probably would have picked this as one of my favorites from the year myself, since people failing to investigate the various claims on the internet before resharing is a major pet peeve of mine.
I’m disappointed I didn’t get to visit more cemeteries in 2015. My visit to this lovely, well-kept graveyard was delightful.
I wrote this post years ago and am thrilled that it’s still so popular and that mothers find it helpful and affirming.
This post is dear to my heart because it’s about my husband and he richly deserves every word.
I still can’t read this account of our dog’s last day without crying. Maybe I will never be able to.
This is a sobering reflection on the troubling times in which we live and how we allow them to affect our relationships with each other.
This post is special to me because it was my first to be featured on BlogHer (or anywhere for that matter!). It was widely read and remained one of the most popular posts there for several days, and engendered lots of good discussion.
This post is just eye candy–a collection of pictures with quotations that I made to celebrate Spring.
I’ve linked this up with the ladies at Like Mother, Like Daughter. There are more great posts to read there! As always, thank you for reading and Happy New Year!
