It’s always amazing at the beginning of the New Year to take a moment and see just how far we have come in the last year. As 2014 came to a close and we begin a fresh beginning in 2015; I love to take a moment to visit our best blog posts of 2014.
What were our top rated and visited articles? What got the most attention? What did people love the most? Taking the year in review, it is a great time to see just what our readers enjoy reading so we can make a game plan to create more content of the sort. It is also a great time to bring some life back to some posts that may have been forgotten along the way.
2014 was a great year for growth. Albeit we didn’t grow as much as I had hoped. We had a lot of struggles a long the way, road bumps, website issues, database corruptions that shut off the site for a while, plus the Husband graduated college, got a job, we bought our first home, and we moved states and left a lot of family and friends behind. It’s been quite a ride. But one full of learning and experiences I’d never trade.
But lets see the highlights from this year in review. What were the top 10 blog posts of 2014 according to our readers?
