One year ago this month, I wrote my first blog post. It's been a wild ride since then.
My writing style has evolved TREMEDOUSLY in one year. It's a little crazy. I don't know what I was thinking with all that center alignment... not to mention a link break after pretty much every sentence. But basically, I figured out my personal writing flow and how I like blog posts to look. I think before, near the beginning of this blogging debut, I was really trying hard to emulate certain popular bloggers with large audiences, and a brand, and a platform.
Uh, hello, that is not me. So it took a learning curve, but I've more or less got it figured out now. Just don't scroll back to May...
I thought it'd be fun to take a look back at my most popular and my personal favorite blog posts of the past 365 days.

And so many more. How much do you love trolling back through your blog archives and reading your own POV from the past? Am I the only one?? I love cringing at my attempted puns just as much as I love smiling teary-eyed reading myself talk about taking risks.
If you could narrow it down, what is your favorite blog post from this past year?
