The Best of 2014



It was another great year around here!


Even though blogging has changed immensely in the six+ years since I started, I still very much love this community. The increased focus on images over writing is hard on me, since I’m more gifted with words than photos, but I keep soldiering on and, blessedly, so many of you put up with me and my old-school ways. :) Thank you!


Commenting has dwindled even more, but it helps to know that engagement on other parts of social media still exists. I thrive on community and conversation and I love to hear your opinions and stories!


Looking up the most visited posts of 2014 wasn’t all that helpful, since some are four years old or even older! So, instead, I dug through the archives to dredge up the posts that got the most feedback and inspired the most conversation from the year.


Here’s what got you all talking and sharing this year!
