This time of year, many radio shows, TV programs and websites will feature a best of segment where they recycle material they have already used throughout the year.
Not only is it a easy (or lazy) way to fill some time (or pages), but it is also a fun way to recap what happened in the past 12 months.
Although this blog has not existed for 12 months, I thought I would join in the ‘best of’ fun and feature my most popular posts from 2013.
Keep in mind these are based on my blog traffic statistics, so they may or may not represent what I (or readers) feel are actually the best posts that I have written.
