It’s that time again when I go through my year of posts and pick out the ones I think were either a) good, b) decent, or c) worth another look. You should know this is a relatively subjective process that I try to do annually. One thing I’m fully aware of as I look back, this past year I posted less to my blog than in any prior year. I think it reflects where my head was at in 2016. A little more subdued. A little more introspective. A little less public. It’s definitely giving me thoughts for the new year and how to better use writing as a way to communicate and inspire as well as a way to promote my little memory keeping business, the one that pays the bills and gives me the luxury of having both readers and the time to write. Without further ado, I present my favorite posts of 2016:
Roll with the changes
Thoughts that kicked off 2016 about what is next for me.
On the topic of 1990 and groceries
Thoughts about the silliness or lack thereof for scrapbooking what you bought at the grocery store.
10 years smoke-free
Because this is literally the definition of awesome.
50 things at 50
List pages will never get old. Well, maybe they will… but this one I love.
Thank you for a funky time
My tribute to the late Prince Rogers Nelson.
Sports are an awesome excuse to photograph your teenaged son
I take pictures because I love taking pictures but it’s more than that.
#nomakeup sounds pretty damned good to me
Thoughts on not wearing makeup. It can be a controversial topic. No judgments here. Just thoughts.
Telling an old story, even without the perfect photos
It’s never too late to tell a story you love.
Good luck Mr Z., and thank you
Who knew Dan was this popular with you guys?
Notes from the Middle Aged Underground
Based on the response I get from posts like this, I think I need to talk about what 50 really is like. Or at least my experience of it.
The 2016 Bee Dance
Let’s just end on a high note, shall we?
And that friends, is my subjective list of favorite posts of the year. Thank you for reading and commenting. I appreciate it tremendously.
