2022 by the Numbers

At the end of each year I like to spend a little time reading through old posts and noting - thanks to the statistics feature associated with the blog - which topics were well-received (and which topics weren't, for that matter) by you, my readers. I have always written and will continue to write in my own voice, and I know how important it is for my blog remain a true representation of who I am, but I want my words to reach out in a way you find interesting and engaging.

As far as recurring posts were concerned, Monthly Medleys and High Five for Fridays continued to do generally well; they have almost the same number of views every week/month, so they serve as something of a baseline for me and I appreciate that consistency. There are, however, always 10 or so non-recurring posts that outperform my Monthly Medleys and High Five for Fridays, and I like to reshare this content at the beginning of the new year in case you missed it. I figure that if everyone else liked these posts, you might like them too. Without further adieu, here are this year's Top 10 posts! (These are in no particular order.)
