It always feels like the end of the year comes SO quickly but writing this post is one of my favorites to write every year! It’s always so fun for me to get a little nerdy and dive into my analytics to see what posts were the most popular all year. Check out 2016 and 2015 here!
Some of these weren’t a surprise to me, but a few of them did surprise me to make the top 10! Do you have a favorite post from this year (or all time) that isn’t on this list? I’d LOVE to hear it in the comments.
